Should GATORADE be considered a "performance enhancing drug?

All profesional athletes consume Gatorade ( contains water, high glucose-fructose corn syrup, sucrose syrp, citric acid, natural flavor, salt, sodium citrate, monopotassium phosphate, gum arabic, glycerol ester of rosin, blue #1 and red # 40) like water, it is full of salt and substances that replace the platelets in your blood., which are neccessary for conducting vigorous sport activity. Gatorade claims that it rehydrates, replenish and refuel, besides being a thirst quencher. If you do not replace the platelets you'll pass out from loosing vital fluids through sweat and you will get a headache from hell. Actually some peole consume it after a drinking binge to ward against hangovers. Should GATORADE be considered a "performance enhancing substance"?
