Why Sports Drinks Are Effective Substitutes to Water

While exercising, it is important to hydrate yourself. However, with drinks developing, sports drinks are now an alternate to drinking water. Why is this?

First, sports drinks will absorb into your body faster than an equal amount of water. This is the result because sports drinks have more carbohydrates and more sodium in them. This will speed up the passage of water through the walls of the stomach. If you do not replace fluids at rapid pace, you will not be performing at optimal running levels. Eventually, if you aren't getting enough fluids, your body's cooling system will stop working and eventually your muscles will shut down.

Sports drinks are better than water because they also have many minerals that are added. Minerals such as sodium, chloride and potassium help you run at the highest performance levels. However, when you are running, you will quickly burn them up. By drinking a sports drinks, you will replace these minerals that have been used up.

Thirdly, sports drinks boost your energy more efficiently than water. Glycogen is important when dealing with long, hard runs. As you run for a long amount of time, your body will slowly break down the stored glycogen. Water does not replenish this critical piece of running system but sports drinks will. Therefore, even though sports drinks may contain lots of sugars, this will be important to replace your energy. By consuming certain levels of carbohydrates before, during, and after you run, you will not only be able to run more efficiently but you will be able to recover from a longer or harder run quickly.

Finally, sports drinks simply taste better than water. With the added carbohydrates, flavors can be added to provide a sweeter taste. It is estimated that runners only drink half of the liquids that they should. With tastes that will make you excited and motivated to drink more, sports drinks can help refuel you by simply encouraging you to drink more. This is more important for runners of an older age. Studies have showed that as people age, they are less likely to notice they are thirsty.

Either way, you can't go wrong. However, there are some reasons to pick sports drinks over water when going on a run. Whether you are worried about recovering, getting the most from your workout, or wanting a fruity taste, sports drinks are a perfectly fine substitute to water.
