Not all fluids are created equal. It’s important to think about this when workouts leave you drenched or when it’s so hot outside your clothes cling to your body.

Research shows that milk is also an ideal recovery beverage, packed with protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Drink up (if you’re not intolerant of dairy)!
