Easiest way to think of this is that this is Gatorade. Sure everyone thinks that sports drinks have glucose for the energy (which is also true) but they also contain sugar because the Na/Glucose co-transporter in the small intestine helps drive electrolyte intake. Without glucose, you don’t pull in sodium nearly as efficiently in the gut and the first makers of the Gatorade formula at UF found that once they gave glucose and electrolytes instead of just water to the football team during practice, they didn’t get as dehydrated and their electrolyte balance was a lot more stable.
