A sodium level of 50 – 170 milligrams per 8 ounces enhances the taste, facilitates absorption, and maintains body fluids. Higher amounts can lead to stomach upset and dehydration because the body sends water to the stomach to dilute the mixture.

Research shows that a 0 – 8% concentration of CHO (0 – 19 grams per 8 ounces) promotes rapid fluid replacement.

To calculate the CHO concentration of any beverage as a percentage, divide the amount of CHO in one serving (in grams) by the amount of fluid in one serving (8 ounces equals 240 milliliters) and then multiply by 100.
