Finally, A Natural Sports Drink That Works

A groundbreaking study reveals that the types and levels of electrolytes in a sports drink matter. The study at Arizona State University’s Hydration Science Lab set out to examine the hydration efficacy of sports drinks based on their electrolyte profile.  The scientists determined that GoodSport, a natural electrolyte hydration drink with naturally sourced electrolytes outperformed other leading sports drinks due to its unique combination and levels of electrolytes.

Building on previous peer-reviewed research from Penn State University* and revealed recently at the American College of Sports Medicine Annual Meeting in Boston, MA, the study revealed that while most sports drinks depend on either sodium or potassium as their primary electrolyte to enhance hydration, GoodSport tested better because it had optimal levels of both.

The lab compared the hydration efficacy of water, the leading sodium-based sports drink, the leading potassium-based sports drink and GoodSport, a sodium and potassium-based sports drink. 

“We looked at several sports drinks to identify which electrolytes or combination thereof would hydrate better and it was empirically evident that GoodSport, with optimal levels of sodium and potassium as well as other electrolytes, hydrated better than a sports drink with sodium and very little potassium, or a sports drink with high levels of potassium and barely any sodium,” said Dr. Stavros Kavouros, lead researcher, Professor of Nutrition and Director of the Hydration Science Lab, Arizona State University. “Our test results were clear – GoodSport hydrated better and for longer than competing products and water.”

Professional sports teams as well as teams training for Paris this summer have made the switch from legacy sports drink brands to GoodSport’s electrolyte hydration drink because of it hydrates better and longer and delivers sustained carbohydrate delivery to provide energy to working muscles and improve performance.

GoodSport contains no artificial flavors, sweeteners or dyes, provides a good source of B vitamins and is lactose free. GoodSport is Upcycled Certified™ because it extracts its electrolytes and carbs from a component of milk that would otherwise go unused.
