Benefits of Chocolate Milk | Lady Luxe Life
Benefits of Chocolate Milk? Yes, you heard it right. And I couldn’t be more excited to share why this is a great, healthy way to benefit your health. Fairlife CorePower Protein Shakes have been a great supplement to my diet for years. It’s a great, fast, and easy lunch replacement, and also a great provider of protein. I found an article on WebMD about the “Health Benefits of Chocolate Milk”. Since today is National Chocolate Milk Day, I thought it would be a perfect day to cover a few of the points on the website here:
Chocolate milk is also an excellent source of:
- Vitamin D
“Milk is naturally rich in calcium, an essential nutrient for your bones and teeth. In addition, most of the milk available in the U.S. and many other countries is fortified with vitamin D. This combination of nutrients makes milk a bone-health powerhouse.
U.S. dairy producers began adding vitamin D to milk in the 1930s to help eliminate rickets, a bone-weakening disease. Rickets, which at the time was common in children, is caused by vitamin D deficiency and makes bones softer and weaker than they should be.”
“Chocolate milk is rich in protein, which helps build muscle mass. Several studies have also found that drinking chocolate milk significantly increases endurance, which helps you keep exercising longer.
As a result, chocolate milk can help you build muscle mass directly, by providing protein, and indirectly, by enabling you to exercise longer. Some evidence also suggests that it may be even more effective than sports drinks for increasing endurance and reducing post-workout exhaustion.”
“Unlike other sugar-rich drinks such as juice and soda, chocolate milk is high in protein, and the non-skim versions also contain fat. Some evidence shows that protein and fat both help you feel full, and that feeling full can help you eat less.
Research shows that a diet high in protein — with enough vitamin D and lower calories — may help you lose. Older adults with obesity who increased their protein intake maintained more muscle mass and lost more weight than those who didn’t add protein to their diets.”
Aren’t you happy that something this delicious, can actually be a great asset to you and your health? I am also a fan of Fairlife CorePower Shakes, and wrote a whole blog on these delicious drinks.
