These sports drinks may help the athletes keep energy levels up but there is every possibility of their using STEROIDS in these products. So, i for one would advise the athletes to take, as i mentioned in my previous comment- WATER+GLUCOSE+SALT+A GINKGO+AN ANTIOXIDANT. This way one would be sure that one is not taking anything fake.
