    Do you all think that Powerade/Gatorade really hydrates better than water, and if it does, does it hydrate enough to pay $0.50 a bottle of Powerade?

    I searched the forum and there wasn't a whole lot on this, so I thought I would bring it up. Thanks. :)

    Sometimes I have a thirst that only Gatorade or Powerade can quench. This is usually when I've worked out much more than I usually do in a day, like I went to play basketball or something after my normal workout. If you do a good job keeping hydrated normally you shouldn't need Gatorade, but in extreme cases it can be of some help.

    Ok, that was the answer I was looking for. I don't really like to drink Powerade just throughout the day, but after working out it's really tasty and I feel a lot less thirsty afterwards.

    Thanks. :)

    Gatorade and powerade is great for replacing electrolytes, which is why it's suggested as a post-workout drink. Water will rehydrate you but not replace electrolytes.

    gatorade is called GATORade for a reason, its for fat alligator looking people who dont care about being ripped, you wanna be a fat alligator? who swims around in shit all his life? think about it? Or do you want to be ripped and drink water like a shark and have zero bodyfat and eat protein like shrimp and other fish all day.....be a shark, not a fucking deer eating gator who loves sugary bullshit and looks chubby as a motherfucker and not lean at all, your choice.

    Gatorade is great if you're an athlete or playing a sport where you sweat out lots of electrolytes/sodium and need to replace your carbs.

    gatorade is good for sports where you become glycogen depleted.
