Adding a little Protein to a Carb Drink is beneficial during a workout.  Protein may be just as important to long-term endurance as carbs. In a trial of 15 cyclists, researchers at James Madison University found that men who sipped a drink with a 4:1 ratio of carbs to protein were able to pedal 29% longer, on average, than men drinking carbs alone. "Protein helps to prevent the depletion of stored carbs within muscle fiber, allowing you to work out longer," says Mike Saunders, Ph.D., the study's author.  A growing body of evidence supports the addition of protein to carbohydrate-electrolyte sports beverages used during endurance exercise as well as for recovery. Dr. Saunders says, "The proposed benefits of CHO+Pro beverages include increased endurance performance, enhanced rehydration, attenuations in markers of muscle damage and improvements in subsequent muscle function."
