Gatorade Thirst Quencher is scientifically formulated and athletically proven to replace fluids and provide energy to working muscles. First created in 1965 by researchers at the University of Florida (USA), Gatorade was developed to help the Florida Gators American football team prevent dehydration when they played in the swamp-like heat. The Gators enjoyed a winning record that season and became known as the “second-half team” by outplaying opponents during the second half of their games.
Gatorade is the most researched beverage on the market for athletes and active individuals. By offering a scientifically validated blend of carbohydrates (6% carbohydrate solution) and electrolytes (sodium and potassium), Gatorade stimulates fluid absorption, helps the body maintain fluid balance, provides energy to working muscles and helps enhance athletic performance. Backed by scientific research (GSSI), Gatorade has scientifically proven rehydration and performance benefits over water. No other beverage or sports drink company has established such a strong expertise in rehydration and sports nutrition. The scientifically proven Gatorade formula replaces what athletes lose in sweat and rehydrates, replenishes and refuels their bodies when they need it most.
