Post-Exercise Milk Drink
There is a new fitness drink on the market that is currently being released in the U.K. It is a recovery drink that athletes or anyone serious about their sport should be drinking. This post-exercise milk based drink is called Xcel Milk and their motto is train smarter. You can check out their main page here.
Basically, this drink is packed with all the nutrients that your body needs to rejuvenate and refresh itself after an intense workout. You will feel completely revived after drinking Xcel Milk, because it contains the right amount of calcium, amino acids, electrolytes, lactose and vitamins C, D, and B12. The drink will give you that extra strength you need to complete your fitness goal.
Replenishing your body with nutrients after an intense workout is extremely critical for our bodies. For example, when you are running a long distance your body works very hard and sweats out many nutrients that are necessary for normal body functioning. It is important for that recovery process, which is supplying the body with protein and carbohydrates.
There are five main goals that Exel Milk is trying to accomplish with their drink:
- Rehydrate Body
- Regulate Muscle Protein Synthesis
- Reduce Muscle Damage
- Raise Muscle Growth and Adaptations to Training
- To Help You Recover Fully
First, re-hydrating the body is important because so much water and electrolytes are lost while you are exercising. It is dangerous to let your body become dehydrated. The milk in this post-exercise drink contains high concentrations of electrolytes that will replenish your body.
Second, milk protein stimulates muscle protein synthesis in our body, which creates a greater protein balance in the particular muscle.
Last, one of the dangers of exercising is EIMD (exercise-induced muscle damage) which can lead to the deterioration of protein structures in the muscles. The ingestion of milk in the early post-exercise stage may decrease the chance of EIMD.
These are some of the main benefits that a training athlete can get from milk. Xcel Milk created a simple way to drink milk, yet it tastes great and it has even more nutrients than regular milk! This post-exercise milk drink comes in three different tasty flavors: Strawberry, Chocolate, and Lime.
It will be interesting to see how popular this drink becomes. It is scheduled to be released in Great Britain in late August 2012. It should not be long before it spreads throughout the population. This bottle of Xcel Milk will also have a great reputation considering it is completely made from high-quality rPET. The company's main focus was to save resources and meet consumer demands, and they have done that extremely well. Check out this website to read more about how this company got started.
