1Chocolate milk as a recovery drink
It might not be the first thing that you would consider drinking after your workout, but chocolate milk is thought to be a great option to help you recover. Results of a study by Indiana University found that athletes who drank chocolate milk were not as tired in their second intense workout, compared to participants who took on board a sports drink.
Another study from researchers at the University of Texas backed up these findings. Athletes who were given chocolate milk in their study had faster race times compared to athletes who drank sports drinks. Chocolate milk is thought to be a good recovery drink as it contains protein, calcium and antioxidants.
