Discussions that mention potassium

Diet & Nutrition board

Concerned Male,

I think they are a dreadful idea: corn syrup, salt, dyes and flavoring.

To me they all taste like flavored sweat and trying to regulate the body's mineral balance with something out of a bottle is risky business.
A good alternative might be fruit (sugar and potassium) and water...let the body take care of its sodium, most of us are bothered more by too MUCH rather than too LITTLE.
