Moderation is key
As an active person, I’m often finding myself dehydrated at the end of a running session. I wouldn’t consider myself loyal to Gatorade, but when on special I’ll buy a few and store them in the fridge. Benefits include: an enjoyable range of flavours; they’re great at hydrating the body; and a conveniently sized bottle. In saying this, negatives include: enormous sugar content; their RRP is on the expensive side. As such, and like with many other things, moderation is key.
OK, I admit, I've been relying on Gatorade and other "sports drinks' to rehydrate during my working day for 5 years now and prior to that, when I was playing sport..
I buy the powder and mix my own drink as buying ready to drink is way too expensive for me.
I drink it every work day in summer (1 - 1.5 litres).
On days where I don't drink it I notice the difference, so I believe that it helps me get through my day.
The downside.....when I last saw my dentist he commented that my teeth had not fared very well since my previous visit and he was at a loss as to why. It was then that I mentioned my "sports drink" intake.
Overall I would drink this if I was in any sporting situation where I needed short-term hydration, but not for long term hydration.
The bottle size is fantastic, very large giving you enough to drink in any situation. There are lots of delicious flavours as well which I enjoy selecting from. The packaging is also very nice to look at. Its a great alternative to water.
When you drink it, you can taste the high amount of sugar that is within the drink. That is not good for my teeth or a long term solution to feeling hydrated. Can be also very expensive to buy at the shops.

I love gatorade, especially the grape one. Its great when you need to get hydrated but also need a sugar hit! The taste of most flavours is fantastic, though some are a little bit too watery and salty. Still a great drink though and easily found in stores!
Great taste, very hydrating, heaps of flavours
Some flavours are a little watery, the price is pretty high when not on special.
