Water vs. sports drinks

posted on

In a recent article on the science news website LiveScience.com, water and sports drinks are compared, especially when it comes to which is better at replenishing the body after exercise. What is the verdict? According to the article, "In general, water is best for hydrating your body when you are working out, said Lauren Popeck, a registered dietitian at Orlando Health in Florida. But if you're exercising for more than an hour, you might consider a sports drink, particularly if you've been sweating a lot, since electrolytes are lost through sweat, Popeck said."

Water is always a great choice, but sports drinks can be considered when exercising. Visit DrinkTap's Water and Your Health webpage for more information on this topic.
