The Effectiveness Of Cerasport And Ceralyte In Physical Recovery From Heat And General Exhaustion

Glycemic and Lactate Responses of Oral Hydration Solutions in Healthy Adults at Rest and Moderate Exercise. Kuecher AM, Smaldino RJ, O'Hara RB, Linderman JK. JEPonline June 2017;20(3):66-78.

This study summarizes and contrasts the availability of glucose in cells after consumption of a glucose solution, a commercial electrolyte drink (Gatorade), and a rice-based sports drink (Cerasport) at rest and during moderate exercise. Results indicate that Cerasport yielded high blood glucose values at rest and during exercise in adult subjects following an overnight fast, which suggest that cerasport may be more effective in energy absorption.
