Replenishes Better Than Water
When you sweat, you lose more than water. You also lose critical electrolytes, like sodium and potassium, which help the brain communicate with muscles and regulate fluid level balance throughout the body. Significant losses in fluids and electrolytes can negatively impact performance, especially during long bouts of training.
The One And Only
With a legacy over 40 years in the making, it's the most scientifically researched and game-tested way to replace electrolytes lost in sweat. Gatorade Thirst Quencher hydrates better than water, which is why it's trusted by some of the world's best athletes.
History of Gatorade
In early summer of 1965, a University of Florida assistant coach sat down with a team of university physicians and asked them to determine why so many of his players were being affected by heat and heat related illnesses.
The researchers — Dr. Robert Cade, Dr. Dana Shires, Dr. H. James Free and Dr. Alejandro de Quesada — soon discovered two key factors that were causing the Gator players to 'wilt': The fluids and electrolytes the players lost through sweat were not being replaced, and the large amounts of carbohydrates the players' bodies used for energy were not being replenished.
The researchers then took their findings into the lab, and scientifically formulated a new, precisely balanced carbohydrate-electrolyte beverage that would adequately replace the key components lost by Gator players through sweating and exercise. They called their concoction ‘Gatorade'.
Gatorade Thirst Quencher has been on NFL sidelines now for more than 44 years, fueling champions and showering coaches with icy gatorade baths.
