Sports drink usually have a small amout of sugar. They've done experiments and found that a certain amount of sugar gives the best absorption of water. The amount is too small to taste and much less than what's in fruit juice.

For electrolytes, sodium is not the only one the body needs, although it needs more of that than the others. The others are potassium, magnesium, and calcium.
