But like all else, moderation is a good thing to follow. Excess diet drinks are not healthy--too much preservatives/sweeteners etc..Water=best drink! so, use common sense--live sensibly.

Are there many common health risks involved with drinking powerade everyday without the exercize, as sport drinks are meant for exercizing?

Are there many common health risks involved with drinking powerade everyday without the exercize, as sport drinks are meant for exercizing?

Sports drinks: Call me a cynic but sports drinks were not intended for exercising but rather for making money. You'll do just fine drinking water, unless you're in the midst of an intense long distance, endurance event. And even then, you'll most likely do fine w/water. Most weekend warriors won't notice fractional improvement reported by collegiate teams that started this craze. ...Read more

Hi does Powerade cause high sugar before a blood test because my blood test results came back at my sugar level was 115 h should i worry?

High glucose: means you need to manage your glucose level better. I don't know what is in Powereade but many of those drinks are loaded w/sugar. Consider switching to lemon water. Please see your doc. He/she may give you a A1c test which measures your glucose over 3-4 months rather than one moment in time. Peace and good health. ...Read more

My stool was a greenish blue color being half runny half hard. I drank a blue Powerade yesterday but it has never caused this before. Along with that ?

Color from food dye: the color of your stool is the result of the food you ingested. nothing in the body causes blue colors. blue dye is used in medicine for this reason. blue is used to see areas for surgery because nothing in the body is blue (although veins look this way, they are not blue). check your stool again in a few days without eating anything with blue dye. ...Read more

Drinks like gatorade/powerade replenish you and quench your thirst. But how is this possible when they have sodium(salt)? Doesnt salt dehydrate you?

Drinks like gatorade/powerade replenish you and quench your thirst. But how is this possible when they have sodium(salt)? Doesnt 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. Beverages like gatorade and powerade replenish those salt losses while also providing water for hydration and some carbohydrates for energy replacement as well. We don't endorse talking salt alone without the hydration. ...Read more

Is fruit pectin safe to drink with powerade or other drinks to help filter for drug test?

Is fruit pectin safe to drink with powerade or other drinks to help filter for drug test?

Safe & Ineffective: No matter what the makers of these concoctions claim, there is no evidence that any compound, including those containing niacin, works to help people evade drug testing. Large amounts of fluid will dilute the urine, but this will be detected by most forms of drug testing and will be considered either a "failed" test or an adulterated one, which may even be worse. Stop using. That is what works. ...Read more

Woke up Both Calves cramping & cramped all day. Tried salt water,  bananas, powerade drink with electrolytes. No relief yet. Help!! ?

Stretching: Does this happen frequently? Try stretching your calves and or exercise/walk. You could also jiggle your legs a bit and elevate it. Or take a hot shower with the stream directed at your calves (for five minutes) or even a warm bath may help as well. I would be hesitant to recommend medication since there may be an underlying cause that should be targeted instead. See your Dr if it doesn't improve. ...Read more
