Milk is as good as or even better than sports drinks for serious athletes.
Muscles get damaged after aerobic exercise such as running, soccer, or cycling. Milk's two proteins proven to aid in rebuilding muscles, casein and whey, provides the building blocks for recovering and building new muscles.
Furthermore, milk contains carbohydrates, electrolytes, calcium, and vitamin D.
(Most sports drinks replace the lost carbohydrates and electrolytes, but usually don't have the proteins for aiding the regenerating of muscles.)
For best results, a pint of milk is recommended within 30 minutes after a workout.
