The Case for Sugar in Sports Drinks
Generally speaking, there are many benefits to limiting the total amount of added sugar in one’s diet. However, there are also certain times when consuming an appropriate amount of sugar can be beneficial. When engaging in strenuous activities, a rapid depletion of stored sugars can lead to a sudden drop off in performance. Endurance athletes, like marathon runners, refer to this as hitting the wall or bonking. In order to avoid this drop off, these athletes rely on sports drinks and energy chews that contain easily digestible sugars.
While sugar is usually added to non-sports drinks solely to improve taste, its addition to sports drinks is actually two-fold. Firstly, sugar does improve the flavor profile, which is helpful in maintaining proper hydration levels. Most people fail to consume the proper amount of fluids mainly because they dislike the taste of plain water. However, sugar is also added to sports drinks for a second reason - to help restore and maintain proper glycogen levels.
Simply put, when deciding on the appropriate sugar level in a sports drink the primary factor to consider is the amount of physical work being performed at the time the drink is consumed. Obviously, there isn’t much benefit to drinking Gatorade while watching TV, other than the fact that it’s probably better than drinking a cola. However, during times of elevated exertion the added sugars in some sports drinks can be beneficial to sustaining peak performance.
