Sports drinks are primarily meant for people who:


• train regularly;

• do work that requires muscle exertion;

• work in extreme environmental conditions.

The body loses a lot of water, energy and essential electrolytes and vitamins in the course of intensive muscle exertion, which reduces a person’s capacity for work and physical stamina. It is possible to recover after a workout by using the body’s own resources or with the help of various recovery procedures and means, such as sports drinks.

Although drinking water contains various minerals (such as sodium, calcium, magnesium and potassium), the body needs a more efficient recovery aid during and after an intensive workout, especially if it is done in a warm climate and several times a day.

In addition to water and minerals, sports drinks also contain carbohydrates and vitamins. The main purpose of consuming carbohydrates during work is to avoid a drop of glucose levels and to maintain the high intensity of carbohydrate metabolism in the muscles. Fine-tuning osmolar pressure in the drink promotes its uptake by the body and sugars as well as mineral nutrients are absorbed more quickly by the body as a result. The body loses liquid during a workout, but restoring the level of minerals in the body is just as important as restoring the level of liquid, and this cannot be done by drinking water alone. The products in A. Le Coq Arctic Sport drinks range are easy for the body to absorb, making them perfect for this purpose.

After a 40-minute workout, the body first exhausts the carbohydrate reserves of the body to obtain energy and then starts using the energy generated by burning fat. If losing weight is the purpose of exercise, then it’s only important to restore the liquid and mineral balance of the body after physical exertion without raising the level of energy.

Please remember:

Over-consumption of sports drinks may lead to difficulties in working out, e.g. a feeling of exhaustion.

  • Sports drinks are not recommended in the case of low-sodium diets (e.g. hypertension treatment), as they contain significant quantities of sodium.
  • Most sports drinks contain carbohydrates that provide energy. This is something that people who hope to quickly lose weight by consuming large quantities of sports drinks should keep in mind. Consumption of sports drinks without sufficient physical exertion may result in weight gain.
  • A sports drink is not a magic potion. You need to exercise hard if you want to get fit and keep your good form.
