Comparisons of Post-Exercise Chocolate Milk and a Commercial Recovery Beverage following Cycling Training on Recovery and Performance. JEPonline 2011;14(6):29-39. A recovery beverage that enhances recovery and either maintains or improves the athlete’s workout is highly desired. This study compared low-fat chocolate milk (CHOC) to a commercial recovery beverage (Endurox, CRB) ingested daily over a one-week period in…

Chocolate milk for recovery from exercise: a systematic review and meta-analysis of controlled clinical trials
Overall, the evidence regarding the efficacy of CM compared to either water or other “sport drinks” on post-exercise recovery markers is limited and high-quality clinical trials with more well-controlled methodology and larger sample sizes are warranted.
Effect of Milk on Muscle Glycogen Recovery and Exercise Performance: A Systematic Review
Carohydrate-added milk beverages, especially chocolate milk, are a sports drink option for postexercise muscle glycogen recovery and subsequent exercise performance, when they have an adequate carbohydrate amount.
Developing a sports nutrition formulary for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Sports Nutrition Care Manual
A formulary offering the ability for dietitians and other health professionals to make the most informed, up to date decision regarding the best SNS for their client was published to the SNCM.


Effects of chocolate milk consumption on markers of muscle recovery following soccer training: a randomized cross-over study
Post-exercise CM provided similar muscle recovery responses to an isocaloric CHO beverage during four-days of ITD, and attenuated CK levels observed with CM have functional significance during more demanding periods of training.
Chocolate milk as a post-exercise recovery aid.
The results of this study suggest that chocolate milk is an effective recovery aid between two exhausting exercise bouts.
Effects of a carbohydrate-protein beverage on cycling endurance and muscle damage.
A carbohydrate beverage with additional protein calories produced significant improvements in time to fatigue and reductions in muscle damage in endurance athletes.
Effects of Recovery Beverages on Glycogen Restoration and Endurance Exercise Performance
The findings indicate that the rate of recovery is coupled with the rates of muscle glycogen replenishment and suggest that recovery supplements should be consumed to optimize Muscle glycogen synthesis as well as fluid replacement.
Effects of an amino acid carbohydrate drink on exercise performance after consecutive-day exercise bouts.
The addition of AA to a carbohydrate beverage after consecutive-day exercise bouts reduced muscle damage as indicated by CK levels, decreased fatigue, and maintained exercise performance compared with consuming carbohydrate alone.
Effect of an isocaloric carbohydrate-protein-antioxidant drink on cycling performance.
The CHO beverage attenuated postexercise muscle damage, as evidenced by CK and LDH values, compared with an isocaloric CHO beverage, despite lower total carbohydrate content in the CHOPA beverage.
Influence of carbohydrate-protein beverage on cycling endurance and indices of muscle disruption.
It is suggested that at least some of the reported improvements in endurance with CHO+Pro beverages might be related to caloric differences between treatments and were elicited with beverages consumed only during exercise.
Postexercise carbohydrate-protein- antioxidant ingestion decreases plasma creatine kinase and muscle soreness.
It is concluded that muscle damage incurred during training was attenuated with postexercise CHO+P+A ingestion, which could lead to performance improvements in high-mileage runners.
Early postexercise muscle glycogen recovery is enhanced with a carbohydrate-protein supplement.
The results suggest that a CHO-Pro supplement is more effective for the rapid replenishment of muscle glycogen after exercise than a CHO supplement of equal CHO or caloric content.
Carbohydrate-protein drinks do not enhance recovery from exercise-induced muscle injury.
In conclusion, consuming a CHO+PRO or CHO beverage immediately after novel eccentric exercise failed to enhance recovery of exercise-induced muscle injury differently than what was observed with a PLA drink.
