Lucozade Sport is formulated to maintain hydration to improve endurance performance. When you exercise heavily or for a prolonged period of time, replacing what your body loses through sweat is important, as well as providing sufficient energy to allow you to continue to perform.
Lucozade Sport provides a source of fluid but importantly contains both carbohydrate and sodium. The carbohydrate, along with the sodium, helps your body absorb fluid more effectively. The carbohydrate is also a source of energy during this exercise. Lucozade Sport, as a carbohydrate-electrolyte drink, therefore can help maintain fluid and electrolyte balance, as well as endurance exercise performance.
