“Background Fluid loss during
strenuous, long duration exercise is commonplace and can result in thermal stress, impaired cognition and cardiovascular function, accelerated fatigue, and impaired exercise performance [1, 2]. Recommendations for fluid intake before, during, and following exercise are well described [3, 4] and are typically followed by most athletes seeking enhanced physical performance. Abiding by such recommendations appears
particularly important when exercising in hot and humid environmental conditions, where fluid loss may be high . Although water is often suggested to many general fitness enthusiasts who may exercise for relatively short periods of time ( < 75 minutes), carbohydrate-electrolyte sport drinks are highly recommended and appear to be the beverage of choice for most serious athletes--aerobic athletes in particular . This is partly fueled by scientific recommendations for the consumption of such beverages [6, 7], and partly by the widespread marketing campaigns of large sport Unoprostone nutrition and beverage companies. Regardless, carbohydrate-electrolyte beverages are widely consumed and represent a multi-billion dollar segment of the food and beverage industry . Some individuals prefer natural alternatives to the manufactured sport drinks. For example, many sport drinks contain fructose and/or maltodextrin, artificial flavors and sweeteners, and added electrolytes (e.g., sodium, potassium). With more emphasis recently within the sport nutrition industry on “”natural”" beverages, some athletes and recreationally active fitness enthusiasts seek alternatives to the manufactured sport drink.
