Gatorade is the world’s number one sports drink. It is a carbohydrate-electrolyte sports drink that comes in a range of flavours and is designed to maintain endurance performance and to enhance the absorption of water during physical exercise. It is the perfect drink to take to the gym, to the track, and to the football pitch. In fact, for any activity where you are going to be using lots of energy and building up a sweat, Gatorade will enable you to replenish your fluids and perform better.
My son Joe is extremely active. He plays for a football team and trains twice weekly with them. He also plays for the WBA foundation once a week, plays school sport 4 times weekly, and boxes on Fridays. He takes a drink with him as he builds up a sweat and uses lots of energy, but he is not a fan of water, and we found that during training he was sometimes not drinking enough, which led to a loss of energy and a drop in his performance levels.
He now takes a bottle of Gatorade with him to each training session. The 500ml sports drinks bottles are easy to open and close and are non spill. There are a range of flavours including Cool Blue (Joe’s favourite), Red Orange, Orange and Lemon. The drinks taste great, and if you are interested in trying them all, Amazon has a pack that includes 12 bottles (3 of each flavour), along with a cool towel and a Gatorade squeeze bottle. This is a great way of getting to know the brand.
The Gatorade drinks taste great and have been a real success story in my house. We reserve these for sports time only, they are sports drinks and so not just for after school, but when they are used correctly, they are a great way of putting the energy and hydration back into the body.
