Which one is healthier for sports? And what about just plain thirst?

-------Gatorade or Water ?

Postby anwar » Tue Nov 13, 2012 10:28 am

Water is healthy, Gatorade contains Brominated Vegetable Oil so it isn't ever healthy.

BVO- Brominated Vegetable Oil – toxic additive in many sports drinks and sodas
July 29, 2009
Most people have never heard of BVO-brominated vegetable oil-yet it’s highly toxic and found in many products we consume in large quantities. Used as an emulsifier and clouding agent in soft drinks such as Mountain Dew, Gatorade, Powerade, Pineapple and Orange Fanta, Orange Crush, Sun Drop, Squirt and Fresca, BVO can also be found in some bakery products and brands of pasta.

BVO has been banned in over 100 countries. In the U.S. it’s use is regulated by the FDA to the extent that it is “PERMITTED IN FOOD OR IN CONTACT WITH FOOD ON AN INTERIM BASIS PENDING ADDITIONAL STUDY.” (http://vm.cfsan.fda.gov/~lrd/fcf180.html)

Brominated Vegetable Oil, is composed mainly of bromine, a poisonous chemical whose vapors are considered both corrosive and toxic. The chemical bromine is used for a number of products, from light-sensitive photographic printing papers, as an additive for gasoline, to agricultural fumigants.

Consumption of bromine containing products increases bromine content in our system that ultimately competes with iodine and causes iodine deficiency thereby creating a condition called “Brominated Thyroid.” Bromine is a potential carcinogen and causes a number of disorders starting from simple headache, fatigue, weight-gain to cancer, heart and kidney diseases.

The FDA says products that include brominated vegetable oil must declare it in the list of ingredients. Check labels! Cast your vote by not buying products that contain BVO.

When I read all these answers from posters, I just can't help but be sickened knowing that marketing for these unhealthy foods/drinks has everyone believing crap! Gatorade is VERY ACIDIC -- it has a pH of 2.85! Water coming from our taps is not that great either - it can actually make you sick! The best thing to drink to replenish nutrients and act as an astringent, pulling out toxins from the body, is freshly juiced alkalizing fruits.

Obviously water has no calories and Gatorade has what, about 80? But the point is is that water is good before a game to stay hydrated and then drink Gatorade during because as you sweat, you need those electrolytes to have stamina and endurance. So both are just as healthy.

Gatorade was developed to replace some electrolytes when you are exercising or exerting yourself to a degree that you are depleting your electrolytes. In most cases, water is best.
