Muscle Milk

Believe it or not, chocolate milk could be a health drink.

As we get older, mitochondria – which helps the body repair and maintain itself – dwindles. It’s already known that a protein and carbohydrate mix, such as is found in chocolate milk, can help muscles recover if drunk immediately after exercise.

Now a New Zealand study is hoping to show that it can also help the body produce mitochondria, which will help people live longer, healthier lives.
