Ageing Muscles Benefit from Post-Exercise Protein Drinks

As a runner I was particularly interested in this research study which claims that we will benefit most from exercise by drinking protein drinks after aerobic activity.  This will increase 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.

I shall be remembering this as I train for my annual Jane Tomlinson 10k charity race in Leeds on June 19. I am running for the Stroke Association this year after my wife Valerie was struck down with a severe stroke last October and currently cannot walk properly and cannot talk.
