Sports Drinks vs Water. Before, during and after exercise.

March 16, 2016

 

I have generally been of the opinion that plain water is the best drink for the body. The 2 litres per day mantra has been a catch line for as long as I can remember.

 

However most of the people I know, myself included, find it very difficult to get through 2 litres of plain water every day. Even when it is hot or we are exercising. Recently I read a fact sheet from ‘Sports Dieticians Australia’ regarding sports drinks and their potential benefit so I started to incorporate them into my exercise. And so far I would have to say I am pretty impressed. I still mainly drink water, but the addition of a sports drink seems to increase my overall fluid intake and improve my recovery (which seems to be getting slower the older I get).

 

Have a read of the following information and see what you think.
