Just finished your workout? Down a big cup of milk. Milk has been added to the sport beverages list now. The last research in sport medicine showed that milk with low fat content provides an effective way for recovering muscular strength after strenuous exercising. This information appeared on the Mayo Clinic official website.
Milk contains both carbohydrates (lactose) and proteins (whey, casein). In comparison with well-known sport beverages which are usually offered to sportsmen, milk or milk with chocolate are better for muscular nourishment, restoration and building. The results were especially impressive when milk is drunk after exercising. Milk also contains natrium, kalium and other healthy substances which are lost with perspiration and should be restored after exercises. Milk is rich in calcium, phosphorus and vitamin D too.
So, parents are well advised to give a cup of fresh milk to their children after the next great game. And what will be your own choice now? Maybe you are already inclined to go for natural milk. It is the right choice. Take care of yourselves and make your body healthier.
