Energy Drinks For When Not Feeling Well
Japan has a great selection of energy drinks that are always changing with the times. However, there are two drinks that haven been round for the longest time and are still going strong. They are basically the same drink, in competition with each other, I suppose a little bit like Coke and Pepsi.......
They are called "Pocari Sweat" and the other is "Aquarius". You will find them in any supermarket or convenience store (maybe not always together), but they are are a slightly sweet, but not too sweet, very easy to drink white liquid. They areally are great for replenishing vitamins and hydrating your system, especially after playing sports, being outside in the very hot and humind Japanese summer, or just generally when you have had a long hard day.
However, these "sports drinks" as the Japanese will call them, also come highly recommended by doctors and hospitals. When you have a fever or are out with a really bad cold, doctors will often recommend you to take Pocari Sweat or Aquarius to assist in your recovery. The main reason is that they are so easy to drink, more so than regular water. As they flow into your body easily and the intake is smooth, you can generally drink more of them than water, which hhelps your hydration. Furthermore, they have more vitamins and salts than regular water, so they really are great when you are down. They even work well for hangovers!!
