Water: An Overlooked Nutrient

As requested, I have analyzed the nutrient benefits of Powerade, Gatorade and water and after comparing the data, it seems that water is the most efficient and cost effective way for people to stay hydrated. Although Powerade and Gatorade are packed with electrolytes which aid in hydration, the sugar in the drinks counteracts the positive benefits of the supposed “health drinks.” When it comes to hydrating, water does just as good of a job as Powerade and Gatorade to help the body restore itself from heat or exercise.
