POWERADE HYDRATION FACT
As you train harder leading up to the Melbourne Marathon, it’s really important that you rehydrate after every training session to replenish fluids and fuel to get ready for the next training session. Did you know even though sweat rates vary considerably between individuals, voluntary fluid intakes during exercise generally only meet around 50% of fluid needs? So, most people finish training dehydrated. Powerade Isotonic can help you rehydrate efficiently because it contains water, electrolytes and carbohydrates.
