PlanetRx, an online drugstore, offers thousands of sports nutrition products, vitamins, herbs, medical supplies, and other health-related merchandise.

The benefits of certain sports energy drinks are so profound, a recent study has revealed, that the effects can be felt even if the drink is spat out before ingesting. The study was conducted at the Tour de France, where several cyclists periodically rinsed their mouths with energy drinks. The riders in question posted significantly faster times than those who did not participate in the study. Researchers concluded that the sugars and carbohydrates in energy drinks stimulate the brain with signals that make exercise feel easier on the body. Riders who participated in the study recorded time trial records of nearly five minutes faster than those in the control group.
