I was looking for the same thing this morning, so far only found it on Gatorade's website in the store section & trisports.com. I think they were both the same price.

Was doing some reading on it, & it seems there was quite a bit of research done before they came out with this product.

I just add about 5-6 grams of protein powder to regular Gatorade. You get the Accelerade patented 4:1 carb to protein ratio and it tastes a bit like a creamsicle [if you orange flavour]. It is cheap [cheaper than Accelerade by a long shot] and a family favorite.

"Endurance" also has calcium lactate and magnesium oxide.

I don't think the ordinary Gatorade powder has that

I got some from a soccer mom whose kids didn't like it.... since it was free I thought what the heck I'll branch out from water ... don't know where she got it but she's not a big town girl so it has to be a standard place. I have tried regular Gatorade before and it didn't stick with me... However....
I for some reason really liked it... can't put my finger on it... also used one bottle for just plain water but on my hot rides here in TX (105-110 heat index today) there was something about it vs. plain ol' Gatorade that my body almost seemed to desire after a hard ride or when I really felt low on fluids.

For me, cytomax is much better. Doesn't give me the "cotton mouth" that gatoride products do.
