Gatorade was designed to thwart dehydration in athletes. It is more likely to encourage people to drink more, not less. It is NOT a thirst quencher (that would mean athletes would stop drinking liquids after drinking gatorade… and that would lead to dehydration… the opposite of its intention).
“The company maintains that its formula of carbohydrates (sucrose, glucose and fructose) and electrolytes (potassium and sodium) is the optimal mixture for stimulating fluid absorption, helping the body maintain fluid balance, providing energy to working muscles and enhancing athletic performance.”
If you need sodium – eat salt.
