Protein Drinks After Exercise Help Maintain Muscles

A new research report appearing online in the American Societies for Experimental Biology Journal shows that what someone drinks after exercise plays a critical role in maximizing the effects of exercise. Specifically, the report shows that protein drinks after aerobic activity increases the training effect after six weeks, when compared to carbohydrate drinks. Additionally, this study suggests that this effect can be seen using as little as 20 grams of protein.

Studies such as this help to explain how exercise and nutrition work so that people can better take advantage of those pathways to slow the aging process.”
