Choose Milk for Hydration During Summer Workouts

The summer heat can drain all your energy before you can even begin your plans for the day. You are tired and depleted as you head to the refrigerator, with your new goal for the day seeming to be to rehydrate and gain back enough energy to make it through the longer summer days. Don’t let the summer heat ruin your goals. Whether you’re tackling your to-do list or working out, choose milk to succeed.

Research shows that milk is one of the best beverages for hydration, even better than water or sports drinks. The natural electrolytes, carbohydrates, and high-quality protein in milk make it a winner when it comes to rehydration. This combination may make milk more effective than water or sports drinks at maintaining normal hydration status after exercise.
