Speaking of Gatorade is a little talk about the history of food and especially of hydro-saline. It all began in 1965, when a coach of the University of Florida asked the doctors to help him understand why many of his players were affected by disorders related to heat.

The researchers Dr. Robert Cade, Dr. Dana Shires, Dr. H. James Free and Dr. Alejandro de Queseda quickly discovered two key factors were behind the decline of physical Gator: liquids and minerals that players lost in the sweat was not returned, and the amount of carbohydrates that players were using as energy source were not supplied. So put up a new drink perfectly balanced in minerals and carbohydrates that would adequately replaced all substances Gators lost by players during the activity as a result of fatigue and sweat: was born on "Gatorade." The subsequent success of the team witnessed the validity of the new drink, which was soon adopted by many American teams, so that in 1983, Gatorade became the official drink of the NFL (National Football League), a title that still maintains today. Gatorade over time has created a major research center located in Barrington, Illinois, the Gatorade Sports Science Institute, this institution has, over the years, to develop new products suitable to different disciplines including remind Gatorade In-Car Drinking System, drink designed for drivers of cars, and the series Gatorade Performance Series, Gatorade Energy Drink, Gatorade Energy Bar and Gatorade Nutrition Shake. Over the years entered the market other competitors, despite the validity of the products remains unchanged Gatorade. Gatorade is ultimately a "piece of history of sports food."
