Drink milk and be active! A recent study has revealed that milk can better rehydrate active kids than water or any other sports drinks, particularly in hot conditions.
The research, conducted in Canada, observed that milk can easily replace the vital body salts vanished through sweat and it can even help retain body fluids for a healthy extent of time.
Researchers at Ontario’s McMaster University made a cluster of 8 to 10-year-olds to go all out in a climatically controlled compartment and then their body’s hydration levels were measured after they chugged-a-lug over different drinks.
Brian Timmons, study’s lead researcher, confirmed that milk is by far the best as it is extensively rich in various of premium nutrients, protein, calcium, carbohydrates and the major rehydrating factor ‘electrolytes’, of course.
The sole conclusion is that children feeling dehydration should not go for water, instead they should relish a glass of milk.
“Children become dehydrated during exercise, and it's important they get enough fluids, particularly before going into a second round of a game. Milk is better than either a sports drink or water because it is a source of high quality protein, carbohydrates, calcium and electrolytes”, said Dr. Brian.
Milk is a vital energy booster, and is more than capable in replacing sodium vanished while sweating.
It also showers upon us all the crucial protein, especially required by kids for better development and growth of their muscles.
