You don't need that stuff. I drink only water and ride significantly more than you do.

Your cramping issues are very likely due to you being unfit and out of shape relative to the activity you're trying to do. Sugary drinks aren't going to change that (unless you're also on some crazy diet where you're not eating anything). Ride more often and the cramps will go away.
