      I was thankful for Horizon to contact me to do a review for them on their products! I know  that milk is an important part of our diet and we all need it to be healthy and strong! I am one who isn't a milk drinker at all. I would say I usually never drink milk. I am allergic to milk so I only have milk products on occasion! My husband is a big milk drinker in our family and he's the one that guzzles the milk down!


      Horizon has come out with an all new Horizon Organic lowfat Chocolate Milk with DHA Omega-3! This product is great tasting and easy way to add calcium and DHA to your family's diet. DHA Omega-3 is an important nutrient that helps support heart, brain and eye health, and it's available in lowfat half gallons!




About DHA



   1. DHA belongs to a category of healthy fatty acids known as Omega-3's. Found in high concentrations in the tissues of the brain and eye, DHA Omega-3 is thought to help support healthy function in these areas. DHA has also been shown to help support heart health.


   2. DHA provides a nutritional boost for children's growing minds and bodies. Children's brains grow incredibly fast. In fact, the brain nearly quadruples in the first five years of life.


   3. DHA is a key structural component of the brain, yet many young children don't get their recommended daily amount of DHA as it is found in a limited number of food sources.

      I was surprised to learn that Chocolate Milk is an Effective Post-Exercise Recovery Beverage! I had never heard about this before! A 2006 study showed that low fat milk was as effective at post-exercise rehydration as sports drinks. Because of the natural carb: pro ratio in flavored milks, low fat chocolate milk is an effective post-exercise recovery beverage. The appropriate carb:pro ratio for improving endurance performance is about 4:1 However, effective ranges can vary from 2:1 and up to 5:1.




Consuming carbohydrate and protein post workout has been shown to:



   1. Enhance muscle glycogen formation


   2. Promote a hormonal environment that encourages muscle growth


   3. Promote muscle protein production


   4. May lessen immune-suppressive effects due of intense exercise






MY REVIEW

I was happy to be contacted by Horizon to review their new chocolate milk and to learn more about this company! I did have a hard time finding Horizon milk in grocery stores so I would suggest to you to look up on their store locator which stores carry these products. Other stores were out of it so I knew it was a hit since the store was out of stock of the Horizon chocolate milk. I did find the Horizon chocolate milk at a Kroger store! You can tell that this milk has a different kind of taste than regular milk, but it was good! I love the fact that it is more healthy than other milks! That is what I look for in products to keep my family healthy! I think this would be a great product to give to your child and you can feel good giving this product to them knowing that it's healthy for them!
