Choose Water it Will Prove Better!
Should I drink the sports drink or should I drink water? The answer is simple, water is better because it will provide you with all of the nutrients and minerals you need plus it will rehydrate you. Our bodies are made of over 75% water, so the logical choice would be to fill our bodies with water. It seems that in one sentence I should be able to convince you that water is definitely the right choice, just in case it does not, here is more reasoning.
Water is the most abundant liquid in our bodies. In fact, it is the most abundant component of our bodies. So why would you want to fill you body with anything else other than water.
Some people may disagree and say sports drinks are better. Sports drinks are good for you if you are an elite athlete like Venus Williams, Dwyane Wade or Peyton Manning. Sports drink would also be good if you are practicing or playing in extremely warm conditions and sweating excessively. When you sweat, you lose electrolytes and need to get them back quickly. One way to replenish these electrolytes is to sip on a sports drink. Sports drinks are made of To “normal” people sports drinks may cause weight gain and electrolyte imbalance. Electrolytes need to be balanced in order for our bodies to perform properly and for us to live. Drinking sports drinks may be one choice to regain electrolytes but another is to eat normal food. “Since sweat is about 99 percent water and only 1 percent electrolytes, you can easily replace your losses by eating normal food rather than by relying on sports drinks.”
In the case of sports drinks vs. water, the choice is clear!
Some people think sportsdrinks replenish your fluids better than water while playing sports. Some say water replenishes better than sportsdrinks. According to some scientists sportsdrinks include many sugars and electrolytes that water does not have. Others say that those sugars and electrolytes actually dehydrate more than they hydrate. They say that water is much better than these drinks. Sportsdrinks are being used by people who are not even active, they just like the taste of them. Water is a much better asset to the body because it doesn’t dehydrate the system like sportsdrinks do.
There are good things and bad things about water. Water is a zero calorie rehydration fluid. All living organisms need water to survive. Water does not replace vitamins and minerals like sportsdrinks claim to do. Water does not have all the sugars that sportsdrinks have however. Water is a renewable natural resource while sportsdrinks are processed and made with artificial products that are not...

SportsDrinks and Homeostasis
Personal notes from the author:
If you want students to have a rich discussion about a topic, the topic has to be “on their agenda.” Students need to have something from their past experience to contribute to make the discussion truly engaging. Most students have triedsportsdrinks at some time in their life, and therefore, have experiences they can assess and think about critically. The discussion about sportsdrinks and homeostasis is one of the richest discussions in my Anatomy and Physiology class because students bring previous knowledge into play.
Asking student to then design an experiment (whether they actually do it or not is up to you and your timeline) to test the effects of sportsdrinks on exercise performance moves them toward higher order thinking using inquiry methods. The formality of the experiment will depend on the skill level of your students at this point in your course.
Most students will have studied homeostasis in a previous science course such as Biology, before they take Anatomy and Physiology. For most advanced life science students, homeostasis is not a new concept. Connecting the study of homeostasis to sports...
...Watersports: they're fun to watch, exciting to participate in, and they've been enjoyed for ages! We've been trying to dominate water since the time we stood up as humanoids. We try to take air beneath the surface, we build crafts to skim across the surface, and we use the power of its resistance to build strength in our bodies.
Water sets the stage for some of the most unique, and yet some of the most common events in the world. Covering 75% of our Earth's surface, and making up over 90% of our bodies, it doesn't make you wonder why water has played such a huge role in our personal and professional lives. Let's dive in!
Swimming is the most popular of the watersports because it is easily accessible and inexpensive. In several of the earliest stories of classical literature, it's portrayed as a symbol of heroism and religion. The first known documentation of the various swimming methods is Nicolas Wynman's Dialogue Concerning the Art of Swimming, originally published in 1538. (Historians are still trying to figure out who he was having that dialogue with.)
With the development of swimming pools as we know them today, it became easier and safer for average people all over the world to learn to swim and master it. Swimming was made an Olympic event for the first time in 1896. The most publicized swimming events are the insanely ambitious attempts at...
Don't wallow, shoot into the shower
A quick shower uses far less water than a long soak in the tub. Think twice before you have one!
Save your washing up for one wash
Instead of washing up as you go, save it up and do it in one go to minimise the amount of water you use. As one MoneySaver says, it's a great excuse to leave the washing up!
Conserve water and 'mulch' your garden plants
Mulching garden plants (covering with wood chippings or leaf mould) reduces the need for watering as they will retain moisture for longer. See the BBC's guide on how to mulch.
Love the shade - keep plants out of the sun
Moving pot plants and house plants out of the sun helps limit the amount of water they need once they've had their fair share of sunshine.
Watering the plants? Don't forget your roots
Use the simple trick of an upside-down water bottle with holes in it to get water direct to the roots of your plants - this should help save waste.
Turn it off - don't run the tap
When cleaning don't run the tap, instead use a wash bowl to rinse cloths.
Clean the car smartly
When you really get to the point you have to clean the car, use a bucket of hot soapy water and a watering can of clean water to rinse - no need to use a hose at all. Consider using waterless valeting products too.
Don't bathe pets, keep Fido dry
It can be bad for their skin and they may...
...I chose to research about which drink had the most electrolytes, sportsdrink or orange juice. Which has had me to do the orange juice vs. sportsdrink experiment. The reason why I aminterested in this topic is because for the long time I have loved the flavor of these drinks. But ever since I have been working out I’ve been wondering which drink is most beneficial when working out or participating in any physical activities that would get you tired. Because when I have to chose a work out drink I don’t know if I should choose my favorite juice that is orange juice or a recommended sportsdrink like Gatorade.
So since that day I have been researching information on these two drinks to see which one has the most electrolytes. With this experiment I will be testing with each drink .And calculate the electrolytes in them and see which one has the most. An electrolyte is a liquid or a gel that contain ions. “Electrolytes turn on all thought and motion, almost like a wall switch. They trigger all events like muscle action by controlling ion channels”(Edward Kane, 2010).Electrolytes have four minerals that include Sodium, (Na) Potassium, (K), Magnesium (Mg), and Calcium (Ca).
Electrolytes help us by giving us an electrically-charge. Our brain uses it, so that they can send messages to...

...Drinkwater when you first get up.
Imagine walking into a dark room and looking for something. Chances are you will stumble and maybe even fall unless you turn on the light.
Or consider starting your car in sub-zero temperatures and putting it into gear without waiting for the engine to warm up. Either situation can lead to problems or even disasters.
r When You Need It Most
By Rose Alexander
The same is true of the human body. Withoutwater to “wake up and turn on” the body each day, you may be running on empty, especially if you skip breakfast altogether.
Have a glass of cool water right after you wake up in the morning to tell your body it’s time to get started. Like a gently flowing stream that pushes along debris and rocks, your circulatory system needs fluid to get rid of stubborn free radicals and residue from burned calories that were used during the night’s metabolism.
Refresh your system with a drink of water.
2. Drinkwater before each meal.
Drinking water before a meal helps you feel fuller, so you may be less likely to attack your meal like a starving person.
Water helps prepare the stomach for the food that will follow, waking up taste buds on the tongue and moisturizing the stomach lining so brittle or acidic foods won’t be uncomfortable. Having a glass of water clears your mouth of...
...SportsDrinks, the essential partner of athletes and people who are astute in their everyday lives are becoming increasingly ubiquitous in people’s everyday lives. They replace the fluids, carbohydrates, and electrolytes that we lose through intense activities rapidly, and give us the to “energy” to go back to do more sports. However, do they have any negative effects on human bodies? Are they a critical and indispensable part of the economy?
According to an investigation of the Lithuanian footballer Mindaugas Malinauskas’ research on the sportsdrinks consumption pattern of 500 college students in 2007, it was manifest that over half of the students consumed sportsdrinks every months.(Mayo, Kravitz, 2008) As it was shown, sportsdrinks are now considerably popular in the callant and vigorous society. However, what do the sportsdrinks contain, and what effects do they have on organisms? There are three kinds of energy drinks: the isotonic drinks, the hypotonic drinks, and the hypertonic drinks. Each kind of energy drinks has its own composition and nutrition facts.
Starting with the isotonic drinks, they accommodate mostly of sodium, potassium, carbohydrates and water. The Latin world “iso” means equality, and...
