I agree that Chocolate Milk
tastes great and that it would
be a good recovery drink.
I sort of ran into trouble with
it today though as I bought
2 containers of Hersey's CoCo
powder and have been putting
MAXIMUM amounts of it in my
whey protein smoothies as I used
to do that in my weightloss phase
and there are virtually no calories
But there is 108 mg of Theophylline
in each tablespoon of Hersey's CoCo
powder and that stuff is prescribed
medication for asthma. It enlarges
the Bronchia in the Lungs and promotes
the expulsion of phlegm and I have really
been hacking up some loogies lately.
I suspect it might impact my performance
a bit during exertion on the bike too, but
I can't swear to it.
Anyway... since you guys have been praising
the benefits of Chocolate milk I just wanted
you all to know that it contains a prescription
drug and if you drank a quart of the stuff
you'd probably get about 200 mg of theophylline.
Theophylline poisoning or side effects occur
at about 450 mg or more. But even lesser
amounts can give you upset stomach. In high
doses, theophylline can cause seizures and death.
I may discontinue using the stuff as soon as the
2nd container runs out.
