I had a good debate with a friend about chocolate milk adn was happy to find this article as it verified my thinking.  

 

From the article:

 

The Bottom Line

It appears that my scepticisms regarding chocolate milk as a recovery drink are unwarranted. The research backing it up while containing small samples and in most cases being partially funded by a dairy council seems to be well done, repeated and completed by high level researchers at sound institutions. Readers here should be reminded of several things:

- This does not mean that chocolate milk should be replacing water as your daily beverage of choice. Parents should especially be monitoring for this with kids (as with sports drinks). Chocolate milk does contain a substantial amount of sugar.

- These studies were conducted on people (assumed to be quite fit) who were exercising hard 2 times to measure recovery. It is not necessary or recommended to have chocolate milk or any sports drink if you are doing less than say 45 minutes of intense aerobic exercise.

This is one of nature's natural medicine. We don't use turmeric solely for medicine, but for cooking as well. The aromatic flavor of this wonder spice makes dishes delicious.

This is my first of a series of articles connecting fitness and exercise to our ability to lead.  As a bodybuilder and leadership practioner, I am loving the opportunity to connect these dots!!!

 

From the article:

 

Exercise can improve your brain function!


Studies conducted have provided insight into the effect exercising has on improving the function of our brains.

 

While improving the way our body breaks down and uses the healthier, more nutritious food we are consuming, the brain also enjoys various other benefits.

John Michel's curator insight, June 12, 2013 6:18 AM

The better your ability to think clearly, analyze options, and remember details, the better you will be able to lead. This ability applies whether you are leading an established team, your family, or starting a new business.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, June 29, 2013 9:12 AM

It's true, working out makes us better leaders by helping our brains!
