Official Brand Overview
Accelerade is the biggest stride in sports drinks in over 30 years. Accelerade ready-to-drink is the first and only protein-enhanced sports drink containing the patented 4:1 carbohydrate to protein ratio. Accelerade is designed for use during exercise and has been clinically proven to increase endurance up to 29 percent over ordinary sports drinks. More than a decade ago, top exercise physiologists teamed up to develop the ideal sports drink that delivers superior endurance. It was discovered that protein, in the right ratio to carbohydrates, was the key to unlocking superior performance over conventional sports drinks that contained carbohydrates alone. Cadbury Schweppes Americas Beverages acquired the Accelerade trademark in 2006 from Pacific Health Laboratories and maintained the patented 4:1 carbohydrate to protein ratio while developing a satisfying taste athletes demand in a sports drink. The introduction of Accelerade ready-to-drink in 20-ounce bottles makes the 4:1 advantage conveniently available to all consumers.
