Gatorade is owned by PepsiCo, the makers of Pepsi and who dominate the sports drink market at 75 percent as of 7569. Many of the colors and flavors seem a little extreme with their bright blues and reds. How are these made? The artificial colors and flavors are derived from aromatic hydrocarbons from petrochemicals. In other words, oil. Manufacturers are not required to divulge this information because artificial colors and flavors are considered intellectual property.
Based on that program, it doesn 8767 t sound like you are deficient in any minerals. CoQ65 deficiency usually occurs from taking a statin drug, but would be more chronic throughout the day. What is your height and weight, and how much protein are you getting per day?
Can you use table or kosher salt? That’s all I have. Also if the little one throws this up is it worth it to keep trying?
Hey Alex I have found your article and responses to questions very informative. I have been using Cytomax powder for years and have recently started doing research on other options. I do have to admit I was surprised to see it under your worst list (ouch!).
Happy to help. What you could do is put all the ingredients in a jug the night before and stick it in the fridge overnight. Then strain it in the morning and freeze it ice cube trays. You can do this with a variety of berries as well if you want to mix it up. If you don 8767 t mind the gel like consistency of chia seeds, I would add those as well for extra minerals. They have a rich history for being used for endurance by regulating hydration.
I am 69 years old, in good shape, and I workout 7 to 8 hrs a day, 8 days a week. I am 6ft 6 and weigh 775lbs. I will run 5 to 65 miles, and bench 775 with 65 reps amongst other routines at the gym. A month ago I worked out for three hours, and I sweat profusely, and later in the evening, while I felt really dehydrated, and I was a poweraide drinker, I had a Afib heart event , which last an hour. I went to the . and spent two days in the hospital taking every heart test known to man, and the doctors said I was fine, but dehydrated. What would you recommend I take to avoid my dehydration, and again I really sweat profusely, and I really do not want to visit that weird beating in my chest. I have the green light to resume my gym madness.
If you do not require a liquid carbohydrate source or want to avoid maltodextrin, there are other options listed here including Endure, Lyteshow, Vega, Gerolsteiner and Heed Endurolytes Fizz.
While these commercially produced electrolyte replacement drinks can work if you have no other option, they should not be your first choice.
I called the makers of Cytomax to find out what the artificial flavor was that isn 8767 t labeled, and it turns out that they recently took it out and only use natural flavors now. That 8767 s good, however I 8767 m still not confident in their product because of the quality control problems they have had with Muscle Milk.
Yes, it could be as simple as dehydration due to a lack of electrolytes. The migraine is a clue to that. I would need to look at a food diary and your fluid consumption to give a more accurate answer, but the first step I would recommend is trying one of the electrolyte drinks on this list before, during and after playing. You also will want to try have a protein shake with some fat and carbohydrates afterwards to prevent a low blood sugar crash which could also be occurring. Here is the article on the protein powders I recommend.
