And how long would it typically take to replenish some/all gluco?. In other words are all these drinks and so just a con or do they actually actively help you maintain workload?.

I know that if you have low blood glucose levels, then consume a sugar-containing drink, blood glucose levels will be significantly higher in only 15 minutes. So, they would be rising far before that, likely almost immediately after you consume the sugar.

There have been many controlled studies involving a procedure through which blood glucose levels were intentionally increased, in attempt to detect the affect of the increased levels. They usually measure glucose levels, have the participants consume the drink, then wait 15 minutes after consumption and measure again to ensure that levels have increased.
