Best Sports Drink Brands

The Top Ten
1 Gatorade

Gatorade is actually not the best drink out there! Its actually one of the WORST! This drink only has Calories, Carbs, Potassium, Sodium, and Sugar! Definitely not a good choice to replenish your body at all! It doesn't even have VITAMINS or MINERALS! I bet you don't know that vitamins are no good without minerals to activate them and send them throughout the body. Shame on Gatorade!

Gatorade is the epitome of sports drinks and the most popular. Most people are biased when it come to Gatorade though, because of the advertising seen in world wide sports, and the Olympics. I would also like to point out that Vitamin Water, is pretty much a sports drink diluted with a bunch of water. Coca Cola also admitted that the drink "violates FDA food fortification and product naming guidelines. "

2 Powerade

I actually like Gatorade better, but my friend made me select Powerade against my will. I hate Powerade except for the strawberry lemonade, although I think that it does more bad things for your body than good, it's just tasty.

Tastes great and hydrates well. Love the design of the nozzle which keeps you from guzzling it too quickly!
Water is best, water is life, but it''s not a sports drink brand so don't know why it's even on this list.

Powerade is yum and hydrates you. Good on a cold day when your doing heaps of physical exercise or just out on the water.. Powerade is good and not to bad for you

3 Vitamin Water

''I drank this and saw that there was electrolytes on the cover and said wow this sports drink has lots of vitamins, carbs, and electrolytes. Gatorade, is really bad for you because it is pretty much just sugar water with sodium and potassium which can lead to high blood pressure and powerade uses high fructoce corn syrup an stead of sugar

This is the best! So many flavor and are very healthy and refreshing on top of that! My favorite is Kiwi Strawberry. I drink this all the time.

I drank this when I was sick with the stomach flu and couldn't believe how much faster I was up on my feet!

4 SoBe Life Water

It is so tasty and it makes me feel refreshed. It comes in so many different flavors unlike gatorade and doesn't taste artificial

5 Mizone

Mizone has more taste and variety of flavours than any other sports drink, such as lime, blackcurrant, mandarin and raspberry. It also has 5 essential vitamins, electrolytes and antioxidants to make you perform better! Choose Mizone, it is much more unique!

Enough flavour - no sugars and no crap - probably the best of the breed from a nutritional point of view.

Wont give you a sugar hit though ( which is a blessing)

6 All Sport

Is it still around? Best taste and refreshed just as well.

Good stuff. Wish I could find it.

7 Accelerade

Simply awesome... Rehydrate the body faster then any other sport drink. With protein to help recover one better

8 Staminade

Staminade is much better than drinks like powerade and Gatorade because it has more electrolytes than the others and also has calcium which is an essential mineral when doing physical activity.

This a product that made very energized during my basketball game. I play high school varisty basketball and it helped play the entire state game where I lead our team to a championship.

This is by far the best drink for hydration although I miss the coconut flavour, I still love either Lime or Orange flavour.

9 Lucozade

How is this down at #9! It is the nicest drink EVER! Powerade on the other hand tastes disgusting and fake and looks really terrible.

Lucozade is a large company and are recommended by Profesional footballing nation England. It is way better and is the biggest sports drink in the UK.

So well known and the flavours are amazing. Drink this and be revived!

10 Propel

Propel was just sitting right there in front of me on the screen, so I clicked vote because I was bored.

This stuff is the best bar none nobody can argue it!

It tastes pretty good, and I think it's better than some other drinks, such as Powerade, and gatorade, becuase it keeps you going, and hydrated.
It's a good sports drink! Highly reccomended! :D

The Contenders
11 Body Armor

Body Armor is mainly made of coconut water, which has so much potassium. It has tons of electrolytes, and vitamins. It's all natural. Tons of great athletes use it, including James Harden, Kobe Bryant, Andrew Luck, and Mike Trout.

Love this stuff! A wonderful option for health conscious, naturally minded parents looking for an alternative to the nasty ingredients in Gatorade for their kids. My kids enjoy the flavors and the price is reasonable too.

Body Armor is the best sports drink I have tried. I deliver mail which means I'm out in the weather and during the summer I drink Body Armor to rehydrate throughout my day. All natural and tastes great!

12 Maxade
13 Pocari Sweat

I had this stuff over in Japan and fell in love with it! Way better than any sports drink in the states. Has a grape fruit kinda taste. I buy it anytime I see it in Asian supermarkets.

This is the best tasting and lightest sports drink there is. It's made by a pharm company that also makes IV fluids and such. Kind of hard to find but worth it. I get it at a local Asian market.

Not as sweet tasting as some sports drinks - just very refreshing. Makes you feel hydrated without leaving an aftertaste.

14 Monster

Its quenches your thirst after a hard run. Nothing beats the carbonation and stomach pain you get when chugging a monster during a marathon

15 Cytomax

This stuff works well while cycling and running!

It works the best, compare to others.

16 G2

After starting drinking it I have won 8 out of 9 5k runs this year!

17 FRS

I don't notice an increase in energy, but I do notice a huge difference in endurance. I have tested this product over a few weeks on my same mountain biking loops. Short, long loops 5-12 miles with 1000vertical feet on the longest.30 min to 1 hour loops. I notice I don"t get fatigued in my "usual spots" when I ride without it.
great product.

18 Energade
19 Biosteel
20 Rebound FX

Rebound FX is endorsed by former NBA Super Star Theo Ratliff! This drink provides you with natural sustained energy and will soon be the best on the market! With this drink, there is NO CRASH, only natural pure energy that provides your body with nutrients your body sweats out! What other drink out there will actually put back in your body what you lose...NOT GATORADE! Do your research people!

21 Oshee

Fantastic flavor, excellent value, blows competitors out the water and into the Oshee(n).

22 Aquarius
23 100PLUS

Discovered the drink in Malaysia. Perfect for hot humid condition.

Superb drink till date. Just try it once and feel the difference.

24 G Fuel
25 Innergize

Innergize has been a great help with my asthma. In addition to the foundation nutrition that provides optimal nutrition to the cells this is a great hydrator to open the cells to absorb nutrients. It's great tasting and tons of nutrients to hydrate the body and feel good! Wouldn't be without it!
