CLEAR LAKE, IA – If you’re looking for the best way to recover from a tough workout, you may want to consider downing a glass of a childhood favorite.
Turns out chocolate milk is one of the best things you can drink to decrease muscle fatigue and soreness, post workout. It’s most effective when consumed within 30 minutes after a work out and that goes for everyone, not just serious athlete’s.
Experts say, the proof is in the scientific break-down.
Cutting Edge Fitness Owner, Jason Laube said, “It has the right ratio in terms of carbohydrates to proteins. Most experts are going to say a 3 - 1 and some even a 4 -1. So, you’re getting that with chocolate milk and it’s the only type of supplement out there post workout that’s considered a complete protein, meaning it has all 9 essential amino acids.”
Laube also points out the cost effectiveness of chocolate milk. It comes in at about 50 cents per serving, where as other protein drinks can cost anywhere from $5-10 per serving.
