An athlete's ideal beverage


Ideal for post-workout recovery:

  • It's 90 percent water, which helps replace fluids and rehydrate the body
  • Calcium, Vitamin D and phosphorus help promote, maintain and build strong bones
  • Carbohydrates fuel muscles during exercise and help muscles recover after exercise
  • Potassium helps with fluid and mineral balance and muscle contraction
  • B vitamins help convert food to energy to fuel working muscles

When to refuel:

  • Drink 16 ounces of chocolate milk within 30 minutes of completing your workout, practice or competition.
  • Refuel with chocolate milk between double training sessions and closely scheduled competitions.
  • Include chocolate milk in your daily diet. Good nutrition can make a big difference in your performance.
