I notice when ever I drink Gatorade I feel lightheaded, dizzy and a little nausea. I have always had low blood pressure but its the same feeling only worse. I am not going to drink it anymore but I never noticed the relation till now.

It depends on which color you drink.  T-D-Bol blue makes me nauseous.

 

It is mainly sugar - sucrose, glucose, and fructose.  With a pinch of salt and potassium.

 

Probably the sugar rush.

Much better to take potassium and magnesium supplements in pill form.

I recommend coconut water instead of Gatorade.  I used to drink Gatorade or Powerade frequently in the summer after cutting my grass or yard work because of water loss from the TX heat.  I heard about coconut water as an alternative a few years ago and I found it to be much more refreshing than Gatorade, plus it is 100% natural.

And, if you have a really good imagination you can almost feel like you're drinking a Pina Colada!  :D
