Did you know that Gatorade and other sports drinks contain electrolytes that can be used in a battery solution? These electrolytes are the same ones that replenish your body after exercise. Gatorade and other drinks have different electrolyte activity rates. That makes the battery either more or less powerful. A battery can be made with more electrolyte containing materials than you think. A battery can be made with anything that has electrolyte activity.
Gatorade and Powerade are both energy drinks made to do the same thing supply athletes with more electrolytes. Gatorade is the original sports drink made first in 1965 while Powerade was later made just to rival Gatorade in 1988. For many other reasons than just being original Gatorade is better than Powerade. Let’s get into more depth about the two now.
Mrs. Rally, a lunch lady at a local elementary said “We serve six or seven cartons of chocolate for each one of white milk at lunch.” So why would we get rid of chocolate milk if it is choosen 6 to 1 to white milk? But that’s not all kids love it, it recovers athletes after their workouts and is a better overall diet for kids. Although chocolate milk has a little more sugar than other types of milk, yet I believe that chocolate milk should stay in school!
Gatorade and Powerade are sport drinks made for athletes to stay hydrated. Gatorade and Powerade have the same amount of sugar and carbohydrate content in it. Both drinks have a variety of flavour and mixtures to offer. In addition, both drinks contain vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes for better energy distribution. The results of this experiment will identify the better drink for endurance.
Everyone loves water and gatorade but the real question is, which is a better choice for kids during a regular daily basis or even during sports. “Sports drinks” like gatorade and powerade are supposed to replenish electrolytes that are lost through sweat, but why do kids need to have 34 grams of sugar and a dose of chemical food dye in order to replenish their electrolytes after an hours worth of practice. After a game, the kids should have water to replenish what they have lost through sweat. In my opinion the kids should be able to choose what drink they want after a game or even practice because since they have been working hard, yes they are losing electrolytes, but water does not provide them back into the body afterwards like a gatorade
One benefit that most studies show proven is time management improvement. Players learn to handle tasks better and on time by having to plan their day out before it even begins. The sport also helps to improve concentration by making players stay focused for 48 minutes on the time clock during a game. That does not include timeouts and breaks at the quarter where they are asked to understand what they can improve on for the upcoming
Alcohol can have grave effects on anyone who consumes high amounts of the drug. It has damaging effects on a person’s mind, body, and lifestyle. Drinking has become very common on college campuses, and more students are engaging in binged drinking. In this easy, I will analyze how alcohol effects a college athlete’s performance and recovery, behavior, psychological state, and their long term health. From the research evaluated, alcohol has been used not only as a suppressant for stress, but also as a social norm in institutions across the county, and the world as well. The research done, searches for how alcohol has effected athlete’s behavior, health, and also the effect on their recovery time after injuries.
There has been a discussion on whether sports drinks are better than water at replenishing lost electrolytes and fluids while exercising . You always hear in infomercials and magazines on how you have to drink plenty of water in order to continue to do exercise or a sport . Water only keeps you hydrated and replaces the water lost while sweating . Sports drinks on the other hand replace lost electrolytes , quench thirst , keep you hydrated and give you extra energy to help you continue exercising . Sports drinks are a better source of energy and a better way to replace lost fluids .
Playing sports in school or other places can benefit us in many different ways. For example, it helps us concentrate in our work. After reading 5 different articles in different points of view, I have learned that sports are beneficial in many ways that we should keep
Gatorade has been around since 1965; it is now one of the main leading companies that provides athletes with drinks that replenishes the water, carbohydrates, and electrolytes in an athlete. Many professional athletes drink Gatorade so it comes with no surprise that the Gatorade Company came out with three new drinks called the G-series. These three drinks are meant to be drank before, during , and after being involved in some type of physical activity. After all no athelete wants to give half of what they are capable of performing. There are many ads about the g-series drinks but this one stood out in particular. This ad appeals to logos, ethos, and pathos to attract athletes to drink the new g-series drinks so those who want the best out
Unexpected as it may be, sports drinks are one of the fastest growing beverage categories worldwide and are a multi-billion dollar industry (Black). “In the United States alone, the sales of sports drinks exceed $1.5 billion a year” (Skerrett). And yet, sports drinks are made up of just water, salts, and sugary additives. These salts are known as electrolytes, and are the key characteristic of sports drinks. Examples of electrolytes include sodium and potassium, which can be found in sweat (Smolin). As athletes sweat they lose these electrolytes that play an important role in the body’s functions; they prevent muscle cramping and help nerves transmit impulses, along with also transporting fluids across the body (Crane, Michelle). Due to the prominent part electrolytes have to play in the body, sports drinks are looked to commonly
Your own culture can be a topic that is hard to grasp. It is much easier to see someone else’s culture because they are different from you. In the personal essay, “Ethnic Hash” explains, “Do I even have an ethnicity?” My culture, even though it may be hard to see in my own eyes can be represented by my passion for running. My sport influences the way I eat, dress, what I spend money on, and my friends along with the choices I make through everyday life.
It is absorbed through the stomach and reaches the highest level in the bloodstream after one or two hours. Caffeine reaches the brain quickly and acts as a stimulant for the nervous system. The most noticeable effect of caffeine is alertness. It causes us to feel less tired, so it is a main ingredient in medicines designed to prevent exhaustion. Unfortunately, it is possible to have an overdose of caffeine or a caffeine withdrawal. If too much caffeine is ingested, it can cause hallucinations and confusion. If someone is used to having caffeine on a regular basis, and then doesn’t have it for a while, it can cause irritability, drowsiness, nausea, and anxiety. Caffeine can also cause raised levels of stomach acid, which can cause heartburn. It is not a good thirst quencher because it signals your body to get rid of water. Surprisingly, additional caffeine is not stored in the body. The liver processes it and it exits through urine. Caffeine can also affect the skeletal systems. Ingestion of large amounts of caffeine can interfere with the absorption and metabolism of
The recent trend of Americans carrying bottled water can be explained by its convenience, as it can be purchased in vending machines and grocery stores, and is a healthier choice than soda. In addition, carrying bottled water is a good idea to maintain one’s hydration throughout the day (“Tap Water or Bottled?,” 2006). Although dehydration, or loss of water from the body, is not a concern for many Americans, people who exercise without drinking, sick children and the elderly are susceptible to its effects. Affected individuals will experience thirst, headache, fatigue, and dizziness. In addition, if exercise is undertaken under conditions of dehydration a person may experience muscle cramp or ache (“The ‘8 glasses per day’ rule,” 2006).
Following my “revelation” about the negatives of sports drinks, I set out to find alternatives that would be better for my health, but would still offer taste benefits. One popular alternative that I have found is coconut water. According to research from Lynne Kammer, coconut water has been found to be as effective at rehydrating athletes as water and sports drinks. Additionally, coconut water has fewer calories than most sports drinks. It also gives athletes many wholesome nutrients, compared to drinks such as Gatorade that are full of artificial colors and added sugars. Many athletes religiously drink the fruity beverage, including professional tennis player John Isner, who says the drink prevented his legs from cramping, “even in the hottest
