The Gatorade line of products known as the 'Thirst Quencher' are specially formulated to help both relieve your desire for fluid as well as restore the disturbed balance of the ever so important ratio of sodium and potassium in the body.
When we sweat, we lose these electrolytes out of the body along with this fluid, and if you are only drinking water to replace the fluid, you could suffer from severe feelings of weakness if the electrolyte levels become too low (since they are not being replaced). This is why turning to a sports drink, such as the Thirst Quencher, is a really smart idea for those who are performing extended duration exercise sessions.
The different varieties that the Thirst Quencher is available in are Rain, Frost, Lemonade, Lemon-Lime, X-Factor, Xtremo, Fierce, and AM. Each one is tailored to a slightly different specific need, such as the morning exerciser, those who are really depleting their energy stores, and those looking for something to cool them down.
Each one also contains 14 grams of carbohydrates, 50 calories, 110 mg of sodium, and 30 mg of potassium for each 8 oz. serving.
This beverage is also alright to drink while the actual exercise is taking place because it is not a hypertonic solution, which can sometimes interfere with the body's ability to absorb the fluid.
So, rather than just drinking water during your next exercise session, give a strong consideration to using this product instead.
