Our Heritage

Gatorade’s heritage stems back to 1965 when the University of Florida’s American Football coach went to his medical department  with a problem – his players were finding it hard to perform in the Florida heat. The scientists at the University developed a  drink designed to replace the essential minerals, salts and fluids the players were losing through sweat. The Florida Gators  christened the drink ‘Gator-ade’ and went on to win their first Orange Bowl within two years. Following the final, the coach of  the opposing team, when asked what had made the difference, replied ‘We didn’t have Gatorade, that made the difference’.

The G Series Pro range

Prime® provides a convenient and functional blend of carbohydrates, electrolytes and B vitamins that can be used shortly before or during exercise to provide carbohydrate fuel for when your body needs it.

Perform® is formulated for those engaging in significant physical activity because, unlike water, it contains a blend of carbohydrates and electrolytes, which stimulate fluid intake, ensuring rapid rehydration and provide carbohydrate fuel to active muscles.

Recover® is a protein, carbohydrate and electrolyte drink that provides hydration and muscle-recovery benefits. Gatorade Recover® has the consistency and great taste you’d expect from Gatorade® to help you to prepare for your next challenge.
