The most important function of a sports drink is to rehydrate the body and restore energy and electrolyte levels. That's why so many athletes choose carbohydrate and electrolyte-rich sports drinks instead of water. Sodium and potassium are the primary electrolytes lost in sweat, and both are included in sports drinks.
In 2006, researchers at St. Cloud University demonstrated that drinking Accelerade after cycling significantly enhanced rehydration by 15% compared to a conventional sports drink, and 40% compared to water.
Accelerade contains carbohydrates and protein in a patented 4:1 ratio. Research has shown a 4:1 ratio of carbohydrate to protein to be ideal. While protein is key, the amount of protein is what's important. Too much, and it can't be processed by the body. Too little, and it won't work like it should. The inclusion of just the right amount of protein in Accelerade facilitates rehydration by optimizing the absorption of fluid.*
Performance by the Numbers
29% greater exercise endurance compared to a conventional sports drink
