    Gatorade/Powerade alternatives?

    Post by Kugar on Thu Sep 04, 2008 8:25 pm

    So for the past several (2?) years coach has had us drink a Gatorade/water mixture with salt (so, 1/2 and 1/2) during practice, with 8-20 oz of straight Gatorade after practice.

    I was marginally okay with this, except that yesterday, when I went to the dentist to get my wisdom teeth taken care of and a couple of cavities filled, my dentist let me know that I need a root canal Shocked

    She said that this is probably because of the Gatorade (though Powerade works the same way, because of the citric acid).

    Is there something I can drink that's hydrating that won't rot my teeth? Or am I just going to have to suck it up?

    I've been brushing and rinsing every time I drink my Gatorade, but the dentist told me the citric acid stays in my teeth (Maybe because I cracked it? Would that make a difference?).

    I will check out Propel. Thanks!

    Oh, and eternally_running; my jaw still hurts quite a bit but that's probably because they were my wisdom teeth rather than regular teeth. I had two regular teeth pulled last year and it wasn't so bad. Definitely not something to work yourself up over!

    Use a drink mix like Tang sport or something. Or just drink water. Try Propel though.
