Ultimate no garbage pre race hydration

I've been using this drink for about 3 years now and I just wanted to brag about it. It hasn't been in the U.S. much except for Texas where it is quickly growing in popularity. It's called Eload. www.eload.net
Basically, it has twice the electrolyte content of Gatorade, no artificial ingredients, 35x less acidic than Gatorade, has 5 electrolytes and uses dextrose as primary carb (used in oral hydration solutions in hospitals). Dextrose is the most efficient carb to prevent bonking, facilitate the absorption of electrolytes and is high glycemic which means it works quickly and doesn't require any processing by your stomach or liver. The medical doctor who designed it worked in a natural lactic buffer (to reduce muscle burn) by using the "citrate" form of 3 out of the 5 electrolytes. He uses calcium in a carbonate form to help settle your stomach too. Dr. Stoddard is the former Medical Director of the Subaru Series Ironman and specializes in hydration for athletes. This is the only product I know of that has a money back guarantee that if you cramp, bonk, or get an upset stomach, the company will refund your money. You can get it

Hehe. Here are my results... I don't EVER cramp, bonk or get an upset stomach. I have not had a ride in 3 years that I didn't feel good unless I was coming down with a cold or flu. I recover faster and also hang with my racing friends that get at least twice the training that I do. With a money back guarantee, how can you go wrong? If you need talk as proof, I guess you'll never get anywhere. It's all relative. The only way to make it relative to you is to check it out. If not, no skin off my nose. Peace!

Not enough to quit my day job! I just wouldn't want all the Texans that are using it to have an unfair advantage over everyone else. Ooh, did I just stir up a new thread about Texans? Hehe!

Well, this texan uses it, but really likes beer. So I think it is a balance

I use a secret drink mix that involves E-load. Ive been on that stuff for like 5 years now. Its great for keeping you from bonking if you use it right but still lackes that legal "kick".
