Are Sports Drinks Really Healthy?

05-11-20 - Sports Drinks

Sports drinks are heralded as these amazing source of electrolytes and everything the body needs to restore itself. But is that really true?

I took a dive into many of the popular sports drinks and not surprising, there was one ingredient that was pretty consistent across them all. A ton of sugar. Some had nearly as much as a soda.

So why are they proclaimed as such a good thing? Sure if you’ve just got done doing an intense workout for two hours in the heat, having one is fine, but many of us reach for these as a healthy alternative to soda. We think we are doing ourselves a good thing. But are we really.

I dive into exactly which ones are pretty good, and which ones you should steer clear of in the below video.
