There are many different sports drinks on the market today. Many of them claim to be designed for optimal athletic performance, but how do you know that the drink you are choosing will give you the maximum benefits possible. First of all, understanding the basic makeup of sports drinks in general is important because by learning what the makeup is, you are able to read the ingredient labels and make a more informed decision about which products meet your needs best.
Most sports drinks are largely made up of water. They also include flavoring, coloring and electrolytes. Athletes who are sweating heavily while running or playing a game such as basketball will lose electrolytes. If their electrolyte levels get low enough, there can be cardiovascular complications. The theory of drinking sports drinks is that they replenish these electrolytes before they can drop to dangerously low levels.
