COMPARATOR / Energy Drink
A sports drink or exercise drink or isotonic drink or even energy drink is a drink, the stated purpose of which is to help athletes replace water, electrolytes and energy lost during sports practice. The effectiveness of these drinks is controversial, especially with regard to physical efforts of moderate intensity or duration.
Not to be confused with an energy drink (which contains various stimulants including caffeine and which is not recommended before, during and after exercise), the energy drink is commonly called "sports drink" by the general public but its real name is a “carbohydrate diet drink”! To be allowed to be called such, the energy drink must have a specific ratio of carbohydrate / vitamin B1 / sodium. Without it, it does not meet regulatory criteria and cannot be called a "dietetic carbohydrate drink".
It remains one of the basic criteria, even if efficiency takes precedence.
This is where we'll see if the supplement meets the manufacturer's promises and our expectations.
Risks / Side Effects
