        Some argue that Powerade may rehydrate athletes more effectively than Gatorade

because it has a slightly higher sugar content and uses sugar polymers instead of glucose. The

combination of the higher sugar content and the type of sugar allows more water to be

absorbed back into the body. Other studies dispute this evidence, claiming that the percentage

and type of sugar has no real impact on the absorption of water (Smenyak). In fact, many of

these studies claim that Gatorade’s higher sodium content helps replenish the salt lost while

sweating more effectively than Powerade, making Gatorade the better sports drink (“Gatorade

vs. Powerade”). There is no conclusive evidence that supports one sports drink over the other.
