Research Suggests Milk Is Better After Vigorous Exercise Than Sports Drinks

September 8, 2010: 06:42 AM EST
British researchers offer evidence that milk – rich in protein, carbohydrates, electrolytes, calcium and vitamin D – is a superior sports drink for muscle recovery after vigorous exercise. The key ingredients in milk are casein and whey, proteins that help regenerate muscle tissue damaged after intense aerobic workouts. The protein makes milk a better choice for athletes than standard sports drinks that only replace lost carbohydrates and electrolytes but lack regenerative nutrients. The researchers found that athletes who drank milk after training were able to exercise longer in their next workout than those who drank sports drinks or water. "If athletes drink milk right after training, then by the time it is digested, the milk's nutrients are ready to be absorbed by the muscles that have been hurt,” one researcher said.
