Hydration

Propel Fitness Water can help you stay hydrated during your workouts and throughout the day. Gatorade specifically adds a hint of flavor to its Propel Fitness Water in order to keep you drinking. Drinking Propel Fitness Water throughout the day keeps you hydrated. Your body is made up of 60 percent water, without replenishing lost fluids, you risk becoming fatigued and your body may become unable to perform functions to maintain homeostasis.

Electrolytes

According to the paper "Foods and Fluids for Fitness" written by Susan Kundrat, MS, RD, LD, lost electrolytes during exercise can result in fatigue and muscle cramping. Propel fitness water contains 35 mg of sodium per serving to help replenish lost electrolytes.
