Cytomax with sustained energy. No other sports drink can match Cytomax's proven performance. University studies have proven that Cytomax: Lowers acid level during and after training for less burning and cramping during exercise and less soreness afterwards...So You Can Beat The Burn! Stabilizes power output during intense exercise for more strength - especially towards the end of your workout. Reduces perceived exertion so you feel less fatigued during training. Improves end exercise sprint capacity. Increases recuperation rate - from one workout day to the next. These results are possible due to the inclusion of a unique, exclusive, energy component: Alpha-L-Polylactate (lactate with acid removed, clustered around amino acids and carbohydrates). This proprietary lactate is efficiently used as a fuel faster than other carbohydrates and provides energy as well. In addition, it enters the blood stream and tissues faster than a single carbohydrate source, and is utilized more efficiently. The lactate (in Alpha-L-Polylactate) is utilized more efficiently - all while decreasing tissue acidity. Alpha-L-Polylactate - when combined with our multiple carbohydrate blend - gives you sustained energy. In University studies, athletes had better performance after three hours of intense exercise with Cytomax than with another leading sports drink. In addition, Cytomax contains electrolytes - including sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium for optimal hydration. Cytomax does not contain artificial FD&C colors or artificial sweetener.
