RefuelWhat is Gatorade?
Gatorade is the World's No.1 Sports Drink that is trusted by thousands of athletes to keep them going 'stronger for longer'. When we sweat it out in a gym or sports field or at a jogging/cycling track, our body loses considerable water and critical mineral salts. What's more, our working muscles need constant supply of carbohydrate energy. Gatorade is scientifically formulated to give your body almost all this back instantly, thanks to its extensively researched, isotonic formulation.Why not just water?
Water does not have necessary electrolytes like sodium, potassium & chloride (which you lose in sweat) in the right proportion, thus it can not put back everything you lose in sweat.
Water does not have any carbohydrates which active muscles need as fuel.
Water is known to shut of f the thirst mechanism before you are fully hydrated. Hence, you often end up not drinking enough water.
Why do you need Gatorade?
(even if you are a light exerciser)
Warm weather conditions take a lot out of you. When you sweat you loose body fluid and essential salts like sodium, potasium and chloride. Fluids from a key component of your body. Water actually makes up almost 60-65% of your body weight - hence fluid loss is critical. Losing even 2% fluid can affect your performance.
Warning signs of dehydration are - noticeable thirst, muscle cramps, weakness, decreased performence, difficulty in paying attention, headache, nausea, fatigue, lightheaded or dizziness.
Remember, by the time you are thirsty, you are already dehydrated. What's the difference between Gatorade and Energy Drinks?
GATORADE IS UNLIKE ANY OTHER BEVERAGE!
While Gatorade is meant for consumption in active, sporty, hot and sweaty occasions, 'energy drinks' are ideally suited for passive occasions like parties in the evening.
Energy drinks do not contain the optimal combination of mineral salts, which are key to proper hydration
Energy drinks contain stimulants some of which are diuretic. These promote urination which results in water being flushed out of our body.
Energy Drinks contain high concentration of sugar (up to there timesmore than Gatorade) which apart from putting in too many calories, slows down fluid absorption in the body. Gatorade - A Fascinating story
