    Strengths:    I purchased the big container. There are packets available, at REI, and at health food stores.
    This product, taken as directed, prevents lactic acid buildup.
    An additional bonus, it seems to help oxygen uptake for exertion at higher altitudes or for special exertion in getting over one ridge or a few.

    Weaknesses:    I say, do not use this product for hydration. Drink water, or 1:5 juice for hydration, maybe with a straight shot of natural fruit juice now and then.
    This product is very specific, and taken as directed, it is like a miracle product.

    Bottom Line:   
    I am 62 years old, a mountain climber and cyclist 40+ years. I went over high mountain ridges in Glacier National Park, Montana because the ranger asked me to check on two european young people (who were well prepared) because a big storm was coming in. I did. I left just after noon and I got back out before the grill closed in town at 5 PM. Three high mountain ridges and thousands of feet up and down. No big deal. I took the Champion CytoMAX as directed, hydrating as I reported here, and I was fine, felt "refreshed" and I had no leg cramps during or after hard charging up and down and over three mountain ridges.
    If I think I have a physical "challenge" on the bike, I take Champion CytoMAX Exercise Drink as directed and hydrate as I said and I am fine.
    I have really surprised many strong young men, I am 62. In addition, I am a girl. Being active, and knowing what to do for anticipated extra strenuous exertion where I could reasonably expect to have muscle cramps makes the difference. Champion CytoMAX Exercise Drink is a big advantage, used properly. Don't guzzle it. This stuff is not Gatorade. It is better.

    Bike Setup:   "Camping World" folding bicycle, 6-speed Shimano Tourney, with wheel spokes tuned up. I changed out the seat. I added palm rest soft grips. The tires provided are wide, running a little under 50 psi. I like this bike so much for tghe 4 miles loop to the coffee shop I expect to mount up Schwalbe big apple tires and run them soft on dirt trails down at the river and have and extra set of wheels built-up for a high performance narrow commuter tires to get around, without the minivan.
