Caffeine is not present in Powerade. The beverage’s purpose is to keep the body hydrated. Caffeine acts as a diuretic, causing the body to lose water.
Powerade aids in the replenishment of calcium, magnesium, salt, and potassium lost through sweat during strenuous activity. While Powerade is not a replacement for water, it can help to replenish electrolytes lost when sweating. Fruit punch, grape, lemon-lime, and melon are among the Powerade flavours offered as of 2014. Powerade Zero is Powerade’s calorie-free version. Fruit punch, orange, and mountain berry blast varieties of Powerade Zero drops, which are added to water, are available.
