In early summer of 1965, a University of Florida assistant coach sat down with a team ofuniversity physicians and asked them to determine why so many of his players were beingaffected by heat and heat related illnesses.The researchers – Dr. Robert Cade, Dr. Dana Shires, Dr. H. James Free and Dr. Alejandro deQuesada – soon discovered two key factors that were causing the Gator players to wilt: thefluids and electrolytes the players lost through sweat were not being replaced, and the largeamounts of carbohydrates the players bodies used for energy were not being replenished.The researchers then took their findings into the lab, and scientifically formulated a new,precisely balanced carbohydrate-electrolyte beverage that would adequately replace the keycomponents lost by Gator players through sweating and exercise. They called their concoctionGatorade. Proven on the field.Furthering the science of victoryTwo decades after Dr. Cade and his team worked diligently to develop the optimum hydrationformula that would become Gatorade, the Gatorade Sports Science Institute was founded inBarrington, Illinois, to conduct scientific research in the areas of exercise science, hydration, andsport nutrition. Three years later, the lab would be expanded to provide advanced testing forathletes and new Gatorade products and flavors and develop education materials for sports healthprofessionals around the world. Gatorade is now also the official sports drink of the NBA, AVP,and PGA, Major League Baseball, Major League Soccer, and numerous other elite andprofessional organizations and teams.Rising to new challengesAfter years of careful research by the staff at GSSI into the needs of athletes engaged in high-demand training and competition, Gatorade launched the Gatorade Performance Series, an eliteline of sports nutrition products, in 2001. These products include Gatorade Energy Drink,Gatorade Energy Bar, and the Gatorade Nutrition Shake.Four years later, after studying endurance athletes, GSSI developed the Gatorade EnduranceFormula. Featuring a higher concentration of sodium–the key electrolyte found in Original ThirstQuencher–and four other electrolytes lost in sweat, Gatorade Endurance Formula is quicklybecoming a mainstay on race courses the world over.In 2010, Gatorade introduced the G Series; a new line of products from Gatorade that go beyondhydration to provide fuel, fluid and nutrients before, during and after the game.Gatorade Prime 01: Pre-game fuel in a convenient 4-oz. pouch, designed to be used in the 15minutes before the game to provide energy by maximizing the availability of carbohydrateenergy to muscles.Gatorade Perform 02: The proven Gatorade Thirst Quencher that offers a scientifically-formulated blend of carbohydrates and key electrolytes, and is designed for use during the game
to help athletes rehydrate, replenish electrolytes and refuel with carbohydrate to push through allfour quarters.G2 Perform 02: A low-calorie sports drink that delivers functional hydration to athletes duringthe game, but with less than half the calories of Gatorade Thirst Quencher.Gatorade Recover 03: The first protein recovery beverage with the consistency of a thirstquencher. Recover 03 is formulated for use immediately after the game (within 30-60 minutes)for rehydration and to promote muscle recovery.
