Gets Me Through My Session But Not A Pleasant Taste! Review with images

Advantagesboosts my mind and body, bottle

Disadvantagesprice, taste

"...range of Isotonic Sports Drinks. Powerade was introduced in 1988 as it became the official drink of the Great Olympics. There is the option of Powerade Zero which contains no calories or carbohydrates. Powerade has actually been renamed as Powerade ION4 due to containing a mineral system of sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium and claims to give you better performance than normal water. It also claims to replace the minerals lost through sweat ..." Read review

Pump Me Up and Keep Me Wet Review with images

AdvantagesSports cap works, hydrates and is reasonably cheap

DisadvantagesMakes your bowels feel bizarre and tastes horrible

"...exercise better than natural water. Powerade is one such drink that is doing its best to maintain a stranglehold on the lucrative UK sports drink market and has just updated its range with a new Ion 4 mineral system. I exercise regularly (3-4 times a week) but my workout is NOT predominantly aerobic. Indeed, I'm trying to put on mass, not burn it off, so I do a bit of cardio to warm up and then hit the weights and resistance machines. That doesn't ..." Read review

Powered By Powerade Review with images

Advantagesmight be good for serious athletes

Disadvantagestastes foul, doesn't help much for short workouts

"...four pack cost me £3.50. Powerade is the official sports drink of team GB for the 2012 Olympics and also carries the logo of The Football League and England Rugby; whether this endorsement comes simply because they have thrown massive amounts of money at these sporting bodies or because the athletes genuinely use Powerade I don’t know. '''Why Not Water?''' It is important to make sure that you are properly hydrated while you are exercising, if you ..." Read review

Orange Power!

AdvantagesGreat sports drink

DisadvantagesDon't like the orange flavour as much as the others

"...flavour. Like I have just mentioned Powerade is marketed as a sports drink. It is manufactured by the Coca Cola company. It is actually classified as an Isotonic sports drink. An isotonic drink is, "a beverage designed to help athletes rehydrate, as well as replenish electrolytes, carbohydrates, and other nutrients, which can be depleted after training or competition." They really do target this drink towards people who are competing in sports, athletes ..." Read review

Powerade Orange Review with images

AdvantagesGives you energy, well priced, not fizzy

DisadvantagesFlavour is quite weak, high in sugar

"...to take a bottle of Powerade with me to see if that would help with the lethargic feelings I get half way through my workout whilst quenching my thirst and keeping me hydrated at the same time. I found Powerade in Sainsburys and I was quite impressed with the price. The general price for a bottle of Powerade is around £1.09 but you can regularly find them on offer and at present Sainsburys do have an offer on whereby you can purchase two bottles ..." Read review

Orange Powerade - Try Before You Buy. Review with images

AdvantagesLow in Calories, Good Value for Money, Energises and Rehydrates, Easy to Hold whilst excercising.

DisadvantagesEnergy drinks are always understandably second best to drinking water whilst doing excercise.

"...particular. I was aware that Powerade was an energy drink, but it was only since my departure to America in which i was bombarded with Powerade and Gatorade that I first tried the drink. I felt that it had a nice taste and kept me going when i had a busy day ahead of me (although i do recommend that food is also eaten, as energy drinks are an insufficent supply of energy for the human body.) I realised just how popular Powerade seemed to be when i ..." Read review

powerade orange is overated

Advantagesnone

Disadvantagestoo fizzy and sickly

"in my opinion the new powerade orange is not as good as the other powerades on the market.It might have something to do with it tastes more like fanta and i think fizzy drinks arent the best thing to drink when you are training in a high impact and high workout sport.other energy drinks on the market are alot better for you when you need to hydrate and also keep your energy levels and salts up.Energy drinks that have electolytes in are very good for ..."
