Refuel and Restore to Go Hard Tomorrow
Glycogen is the stored form of the carbohydrates that feed your muscles the energy they need when you work out. When you work or play hard, you use this stored energy.
Drinking 1% chocolate milk within 30 minutes of intense exercise restores your glycogen levels, helping you stay energized and ready to perform again tomorrow.
Protein helps enhance recovery after you work out, repairing damaged muscle tissue and promoting muscle growth. While both chocolate milk and sports drinks contain fluid, carbohydrates, and electrolytes, chocolate milk delivers the natural protein, vitamins, and minerals most sport drinks lack.
A study published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism, showed that chocolate milk’s specific carbohydrate-to-protein ratio hastens muscle repair and recovery and refuels muscles post workout.
