It always amazes me what can be advertised as one thing when actually it is another. Take Gatorade, for example. Have you ever noticed the amount of sodium in Gatorade? If you haven’t looked for yourself, it has 250 mg of sodium! That’s 11% of the U.S. daily recommended allowance for an adult.
Granted, we need to have sodium in our diet, but do we really want that much coming from one serving of a sports beverage? I think not.
If you need to gather electrolytes for one reason or another, perhaps a bottle of SmartWater® would be a better option.
