Keeps Up Fluid Levels
Gatorade works to keep up fluid levels by adding carbohydrates and electrolytes to the body to replenish lost water because of sweating and exertion.
Gatorade quenches thirst because of the chloride, potassium and sodium it contains in an 8 oz. serving. The attractive taste in flavors such as fruit punch, lemon-lime, grape and berry allow for tasteful drink satisfaction with or without food.
Gatorade prides itself by being stimulant-free and not containing energy additives such as caffeine and taurine.
Provides Neuromuscular Power
According to Gatorade.com, Gatorade is proven to provide additional neuromuscular power and brain stimulation when used during physical activity. This is mainly because of the additional hydration effects felt throughout the body.
The original 8 oz. Gatorade Thirst Quencher contains around 50 calories per serving and 14 g of carbohydrates. On average, most varieties of the drink contain 10 to 70 calories and no protein.
