  • B3 1.3 The sports drink dilemma
    • Most soft drinks contain water, sugar and mineral ions
    • Sports drinks contain sugars to replace the sugar used in energy release during activity. They also contain water and ions to replace the water and mineral ions lost during sweating.
    • Evidence suggests that for normal levels or exercise water is at least as effective as a sports drink.
