What to Drink: Sports Drinks

The effectiveness of sports drinks has been hotly debated, but most can agree: if you work out for less than one hour as a "recreational" exerciser, chances are you don’t need a sports drink. When you really need a sports drink to replenish your fluids is after an intense, sweaty workout, after a hot run or bike ride, for example. A sports drink will help your body gain back lost carbohydrates and electrolytes; plus, the sodium in it makes you thirstier, and the combination of glucose and salt helps your body absorb water and hydrate faster.
