Sodium and potassium, the main electrolytes lost through sweat are found in limited amounts in most commercial sports drinks. Too much sodium affects the taste of the drink and so the amount of sodium in drinks (10-30 mmol/l) only partially replaces sodium lost in sweat(ranging from 10-90mmol/l). Foods and snacks with a high salt content are therefore recommended to make up 3. Other active ingredients
