Grabbing a drink after a workout to rehydrate and refuel is a no brainer! But what should you choose?

Professional and college athletes choose chocolate milk, because they know the power it has as a refuel and recovery beverage. Research consistently shows that consuming chocolate milk after exercise or sports performance is a great way to replenish the important nutrients our bodies needs for recovery, including:

Carbohydrates Primary source of energy for athletes, helps restore glycogen in muscles after exercise.
Protein High-quality protein after a workout helps support the rebuild and repair process of muscles.
Electrolytes, Vitamins & Minerals Chocolate milk helps replenish the two main electrolytes lost in sweat, sodium and potassium. As well as chloride, magnesium, and calcium.
Fluids Fluid replacement after exercise is critical for proper recovery, the water that chocolate milk provides is vital to refueling.

Carbohydrates, protein, electrolytes, and water – each one of these nutrients plays an important role in recovery. Chocolate milk has all of them.
