They’re best consumed in moderation, if you’re going to consume them at all.

Sports drinks have been designed to help professional athletes recover from the stresses their intense athletic activities put them under, and they’re usually administered in carefully-controlled circumstances. If not, these drinks don’t really do that much to improve your performance, hydration or overall health. They’re full of sugars and acids that over time cause tooth erosion and decay.
