Use Maple Syrup in a Sports Recovery Drink

Make This: Maple Syrup Sports Drink

After complaining about muscle soreness to my yoga teacher, he suggested that I start concocting my own all-natural recovery drink. It's a simple recipe, too: one to two tablespoons of maple syrup and water. My teacher informed me that the sweet syrup not only provides the body with a little shot of carbs, but, more importantly, it helps with muscle recovery. Real maple syrup is an excellent source of manganese, which helps repair muscle and cell damage; it also keeps bones strong and blood sugar levels normal. Besides this important nutrient, maple syrup also contains zinc, iron, calcium, and potassium. And while it's definitely not a post-workout snack replacement, it's become my go-to drink after yoga.
