Drinks like gatorade/powerade replenish you and quench your thirst. But how is this possible when they have sodium (salt)? Doesn't salt dehydrate you?

Drinks like gatorade/powerade replenish you and quench your thirst. But how is this possible when they have sodium (salt)? Doesn't salt dehydrate you?

Replaces salt losses: During exercise and sweating, we lose variable to large amounts of salt/sodium and other electrolytes, especially if a heavy and salty sweater and/or exercising for over one hour.

We don't endorse talking salt alone without the hydration. Read more

Go to doc!: You need to have your blood pressure, and most importantly, your blood sugar checked. Would recommend homocysteine, uric acid, hgba1c, advanced cvd profile with apo e, and mthfr genotypes 677 ; 1298, and an ANA cascade panel to rule our auto immune issues. Taking excedrine all the time can lead to dail caffeine withdrawl headaches. Try to wean off and discover the real problem! Read more

Why does only orange juice quench my thirst since I caught a cold? I doubt water isn't hydrating me, I just still feel thirsty when I drink it.

Hydration: Water is more than adequate for hydration. Your body is craving sugar if you can only feel satisfied with orange juice. Do you have any medical conditions such as diabetes or kidney failure? The more sugary drinks you consume, the more fluid you will lose (hyper osmotic). Read more
