True Dairy Flavored Milk
Long before the advent of Gatorade, Indy 500 winners opted to drink milk after a grueling day behind the wheel. Not only is milk a refreshing thirst quencher, it naturally features the same electrolytes found in modern day sports drinks, with the added benefits of protein.
Flavored Milk: Nature's Sports Drink
Repeated studies have shown that flavored milk’s powerful nutrient package has numerous benefits for post-exercise and sports recovery:
1. Low-fat flavored milk’s three-to-one ratio of carbohydrate grams to protein grams has repeatedly proven to be the best ratio to restore glycogen levels post exercise.
2. Low-fat flavored milk naturally contains the sodium and potassium found in most electrolyte sports drinks, and has shown to be superior at maintaining positive fluid balances during recovery.
3. Low-fat flavored milk contains the optimal balance of fast-absorbing proteins such as whey protein, and slow-absorbing proteins such as casein. Fast-absorbing proteins add essential amino acids to the bloodstream promoting muscle growth and repair, while slow-absorbing proteins help maintain amino acid levels for many hours, reducing muscle breakdown.
