What seems obvious now wasnít so obvious in 1965. In the spring of that year, an assistant Florida Gator football coach began questioning the amount of weight that was being loss by players during practices and games. The coach, Dwayne Douglas, who had played in the NFL himself, turned to a University of Florida kidney specialist named Robert Cade.
Cade observed that as the players lost weight through sweat they also lost strength and endurance. He speculated that the loss of electrolytes through sweat was upsetting the bodyís delicate chemical balance and was thus having a negative impact on performance.
With the approval of head coach Ray Graves, Cade and some colleagues tested his theory on a handful of freshman players. The results were very revealing. Following an extended practice, not only were the playersí electrolytes out of balance, but their blood sugars and total blood volumes were also low.
Based on the results of their studies, Cade and his team set out to find a solution, and in the process they developed Gatorade.
