The great taste of Gatorade keeps athletes drinking, speeding the absorption of fluid, carbohydrates and electrolytes into your body (1). It also helps curb urine production, meaning fluids can be used elsewhere as sweat and to maintain normal hydration. Science shows that no other sports drink is absorbed faster than Gatorade. (2)


Electrolytes like sodium, potassium and chloride are lost in sweat. Gatorade helps replace lost electrodes and stimulates thirst so athletes drink more and stay better hydrated. (3,4,5)


Gatorade delivers 6% carbohydrates to provide muscles with energy to help fight fatigue. Research shows a 6% solution is optimal as higher concentrations take longer to absorb and don't further improve performance. (1)
