CNBC debates Gatorade vs. Enlyten
If you ask me, Enlyten wins. Gatorade says that the body needs three things to perform effectively, electrolytes, carbohydrates and liquids. In general we all drink enough liquids throughout the day and we all consume more than enough daily calories since over 60% of the US population is overweight. When engaged in physical activity, the body really only needs to replenish the lost electrolytes. Why pay Gatorade for water (liquids) and sugar (calories) when we have an abundance of that in our lives already? The Enlyten electrolyte delivery method is nearly as effective as an IV and at a cost as low as 35 cents a strip, substantially cheaper than Gatorade.
