Kids love chocolate milk... so as a sports drink, it's easy to get them to drink it for post-exercise replenishment... for carbohydrates, protein, electrolytes, vitamins & minerals. I'm not surprised by the study...milk is a pretty nutrient dense food with variable fat content. Low-fat chocolate milk is great for active people after a workout because its powerful nutrient package provides energy, protein, calcium and seven other essential nutrients (including potassium, phosphorus, vitamins A, D and B12, riboflavin and niacin.) As we see with other sports beverages, people consume more if it is sweet in flavor! Chocolate milk can be quickly absorbed into the body.

Chocolate has long been loved and not necessarily for its benefits, but for its taste. Many ancient civilizations used cocoa beans as currency because it was so valuable. But it wasnt until modern times that chocolate was first discovered to have health benefits other than satisfying a sweet tooth. It is known today that chocolate is good for you and for many reasons. One of which is its preventions of many cancers and diseases, for example, because of its nutritional content.

Chocolate contains a lot of antioxidants known as flavinoids that help the body. The darker the chocolate is, the richer in antioxidants it is. These antioxidants shown through an Italian study reveal that these flavinoids help lower blood pressure and improve cardiovascular health preventing such things, like heart attacks, from occurring. It also shows that eating chocolate every three days improves your overall well being and health.
