Staying hydrated is necessary for overall health and wellness. Sports drinks are one of many beverage options that help achieve this goal. They often contain electrolytes and were created to help athletes and other active people hydrate before, during and after exercise. Sports drinks can also provide nutrients and quickly replenish electrolytes and carbohydrates lost during physical activity or exposure to high temperatures.
With ongoing industry innovation, sports drinks are now available in a variety of flavors and calorie ranges, too.
And as you walk down the beverage aisle looking for your favorite sports drinks, we hope you’ll also notice the new calorie labels that America’s beverage companies are adding to the front of every can, bottle and pack they produce.
