Gatorade is a well-known brand to professional and amateur athletes, gym goers and anyone who has taken up fitness at some point. Its name is instantly associated with sports drinks and for very good reasons. Below, see one of its newest additions to the range reviewed:
Thirst Quencher is a powder for sports drinks, meant to replace the electrolytes lost through sweat. Thus, it has much more than a hydrating effect. It is recommended in prolonged physical effort but also in a hot climate which causes excessive sweat. This is expected to be better than the premade bottled drinks, as it allows one to enjoy a customized Gatorade sports drink, based on their own needs and preferences. You can add a scoop to your water bottle and go out. If you are not entirely pleased with what the pre-packaged drinks offer, you can now make your own, with the same high quality additions.
One powder container costs between $7 and $11 and its content weighs 51 ounces. This is enough to make 6 gallons or roughly 63 servings. Keep in mind that anyone can adjust the quantity used for each drink, so the number may vary.
Taste and Mixability
The powder is both naturally and artificially flavored. Know that you can create the standard water-based mix instantly, right when you need it. The concentration is up to each individual. Simply prepare a fresh drink on the spot by adding the recommended or the desired powder quantity to cold water, mixing well.
Gatorade is known as The Sports Fuel Company. Now it grabs our attention with its electrolytes powder, to be used for instant hydrating and replenishing drinks. Adjust the quantity and make your sports drink as you please. This is also good for travel – just take the concentrated powder instead of bringing bottles along. Consumers have reported that it also works well frozen until it becomes slush.
A Gatorade instant drink is an effective way to counter the loss caused by sweating. The formulation of Gatorade and its density of elements make it more appropriate and more efficient than bottled mineral water. This is how the brand got to survive for decades and has earned worldwide trust.
One serving has zero fat, 150 mg sodium, 21 g carbs and a total of 70 calories. Note that it does not contain any protein, so it cannot be used as a substitute for protein drinks. It not only quenches the thirst, but is also fulfilling and allows you to commit to longer runs, workouts etc. Ultimately, this product is good value for the money. Thankfully Gatorade did not push the price higher because of the notoriety of its brand.
