Powerade helps the body to replenish calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium after these elements are lost in sweat due to vigorous activity. While Powerade is not a substitute for water, it can restore electrolytes that are lost when the body sweats. As of 2014, Powerade is available in flavors that include fruit punch, grape, lemon-lime and melon. Powerade Zero is the no-calorie version of Powerade. Powerade Zero drops, which are added to water, are available in fruit punch, orange and mountain berry blast flavors.
