Sports drink

Townsville Bulletin - - NQ Life -

Peo­ple who ex­er­cise out­doors in hot weather for longer than 30 min­utes have lower sodium lev­els and run a risk for ‘‘ wa­ter in­tox­i­ca­tion’’ if they drink only wa­ter. Drinks such as Ga­torade and Pow­er­ade re­place flu­ids and salt lost in sweat. If a sports drink isn’t avail­able, re­hy­drate with wa­ter and a drink that con­tains sodium, such as skim milk.
