A study, presented at the American College of Sports Medicine annual meeting, provides athletes and dietitians another reason to get excited over milk. When low-fat chocolate milk challenged a specialized carbohydrate sports drink, the low-fat chocolate milk was comparable, if not better, in muscle recovery when consumed by college soccer players.

This is an exciting study because it shows the benefits of whole food compared to a science formulated beverage. Milk naturally has vitamin D, calcium, potassium, magnesium and other crucial vitamins and minerals.
