Gatorade Fruit Punch comes with a legacy over 50 years in the making. Gatorade products are the most scientifically game-tested and researched way to replace the electrolytes you lose in sweat. Gatorade Fruit Punch, along with all other Gatorade products, is specifically made to help keep you hydrated, which is the reason that it's trusted by some of the world's greatest athletes.
Why Do We Need Electrolytes?
You know you're supposed to replenish your electrolytes after a solid workout, run or spin class with drinks such as coconut water and Gatorade Fruit Punch, but why does your body need them and how does it use them? When you work out, electrolytes are deposited into your sweat glands. Water follows the electrolytes through osmosis, and as the glands fill, they release the salty mixture onto your skin. The reason your fitness instructors are always reminding you to drink up after a workout is that losing too many electrolytes can affect your blood pressure, breathing and more.
What Exactly Are Electrolytes?
Electrolytes are chemicals that form ions in your body fluids. These ions carry the electrical energy needed for many functions, such as muscle contractions and the transmission of nerve impulses. Many bodily functions highly depend on electrolytes. Peak performance requires a consistent, adequate supply of these important nutrients. While electrolytes are essentially salts, salt tablets only provide two of the electrolytes that your body needs and can overwhelm the biological mechanism for regulating it, causing swollen hands and feet from water retention.
About Gatorade Products
While everyone still enjoys the original Gatorade Fruit Punch and Gatorade Frost flavors, there are so many more ways to enjoy your favorite replenishing sports drinks. If you're constantly moving, try using drinks in a Gatorade squeeze bottle to prevent spills. Grab a Gatorade in bottle sizes for every purpose or occasion, or a tub of Gatorade powder mix to keep the whole team at peak performance level during a game or scrimmage. There's nowhere you don't need to be hydrated and your Gatorade can go wherever you need it.
