Here’s putting all the arguments about which is a better sports drink between Prime and Gatorade to rest in a few sentences. Prime and Gatorade are excellent sports drinks depending on your exact need as an athlete.
Prime is available both as a hydration and an energy drink while Gatorade is a hydration drink. In either case, Gatorade is a better option if you need a hydration drink that can replenish your body’s water and electrolytes while exercising. However, if you are trying to reduce your carbs intake, Prime is your sure bet.
Gatorade passes well for a hydration drink on prolonged workout sessions due to its sugar and electrolyte content. You can get up to 34 grams of sugar in 20 ounces of Gatorade, and that’s great for an energy booster.
On the other hand, Prime is a healthy nutritional drink, especially regarding its low sugar content. It is rich in the nutritional ingredients (like amino acids) needed by active individuals and is rated as a pre-workout supplement.
Also, aside from sucralose, Prime is free from artificial sweeteners and colours and is available in eight flavours, while Gatorade is primarily available in Lemon and Punch flavours.
To stay active during prolonged exercises, Gatorade might be a better drink. If what you want, however, is a nutritional sports drink for enhancing your performance, go for Prime hydration drink.
