Drink A Pint of Chocolate milk & Get Ripped!

Could chocolate milk be the new cheaper alternative to all of the expensive protein shakes on the market? I've been coming across it a lot lately and found out why it may do the job just as well if not better.

Protein shakes are very popular, especially among people who lift weights. Protein aids in the recover of the muscles because when we lift weights, we are basically causing rips/tears in the muscles. When they repair, they grow bigger. Protein helps to speed up the muscle recovery. At least that is what I get from reading about it.

Benefits of Chocolate Milk as a Recovery Drink

* Milk's mix of high-quality protein and carbohydrates can help refuel exhausted muscles.
* Research suggests it may reduce exercise-induced muscle damage.
* Helps reduce lactic acid levels in the blood.
* Milk also provides fluids for rehydration and minerals like calcium, potassium and magnesium that recreational exercisers and elite athletes alike need to replace after strenuous activity.

It seems like a good alternative if you want to save money and have no preference in your sport drinks.


Milk contains many good nutrients like protein, calcium and other minerals. Milk contains two types of protein ie: casein(80%) and whey(20%). We get those whey protein powders from processing of milk & cheese, whey is extracted and collected. The difference in casein and whey is casein protein is slowly digestible whereas whey protein digests faster, perfect for before and after training.

After a strenuous workout, your muscles need a fast recovery drink and whey is highly favored due to its fast absorption into our digestive system and its release of amino acids in the muscle cells for fast repair of muscle fibers and growth of muscle tissues.

Milk is a good drink but I think after a workout, it might not represent the best kind of recovery drink, but might still help a bit because it still contains some whey protein.

Before bedtime, when your body will be without nutrients for several long hours, casein protein is recommended. milk is the better drink choice compared to a whey protein shake. The slow release of casein proteins from milk into the digestive system will ensure your body does not get into muscle catabolism.
