Tough Workout? Reach for Milk

While downing a big glass of milk after working out doesn’t sound overly refreshing, new studies show that milk might be even more effective than sports drinks when it comes to repairing your body after vigorous exercise.

According to the studies, the type of carbohydrates and nutrients in milk make it ideal for reviving your muscles after they’ve been worked, and people who drink milk after training are able to work out longer the next time compared to people who drank sports drinks or water. Of course, some of these studies were funded by the dairy industry.

Have you tried drinking milk after an exercise session?
