Sports drinks are unique in the sense that their composition is quite different from fruit juice, energy drinks and flavoured waters. They contain the optimum amount of carbohydrates as well as sodium which enhances the rate of absorption of fluid and carbohydrate, reduces fluid lossess (by decreasing urine output) and also increases thirst.
Years of research shows that for exercise lasting anywhere from 60 minutes to several hours, drinking carbohydrate beverages significantly boosts performance compared to drinking plain water. According to the same research you can expect an improvement in endurance of about 20% or more in sessions lasting longer than 90 minutes.
Add 1 scoop (16g) to 200ml of cold water and stir until dissolved. To make 1 litre use 5 scoops (80g). Once prepared store in the fridge. Use Horleys Electrolyte Sports Drink before, during and after sport or heavy physical activity lasting longer than 60 minutes.
