V8 vegetable juice after workout
Is v8 a good drink to have after your workout? I have been taking my multi-vitamin, my protein shake, and a glass of v8 after my workout and I was wondering if I should keep the v8 in my post workout meal, take it at some other time, or just not take it at all.

First, lets discuss the nutritional benefits of V8 to a bodybuilder. Vegetables (V8 is vegetable juice) help strengthen your immune system and provide stable energy levels throughout the day.
I never have had a V8. If it has sugar in it, I would keep it post workout. A blood sugar spike after a workout is a good thing. I have been eating gummie bears. If it does not have sugar, eat gummie bears. When the blood sugar rises, It forces a rise in insulin within the body. Post workout, insulin is soaked up by the muscles, and glycogen levels are replenished and the muscle repairs faster and more efficiently. I would not take the multi V after a workout, I would in the mourning. Too musch supplementation after a workout is no good for you either, and you want the multi V to affect the whole body, not the hungry muscles you just tore up.
