Experience in dealing with Cytomax company
While in the process of looking for a different "sports drink", for electrolytes mainly, I researched Cytomax. Been using dilute Gatorade and can't stand the sugary taste any longer. On their website, they list numerous anecdotal claims and numbers representing alleged improved performance.
If you look around the web you'll notice that different places that sell Cytomax don't list the ingredients as being the same. It's fact that not all flavors have the same ingredients (will hit that later). Some flavors have "herbal lift". If you look around, you'll learn that's their fancy term for caffeine. Some flavors list ingredients such as "guarana extract"....look that up and it's caffeine. Some flavors list ginseng. Point is, Cytomax comes across to me more as an energy drink that kids buy in convenience stores. I personally don't want any of that.
So, I called Cytomax through the number listed on their web page. Boy, did I ever get the run-around. Two different customer service people obviously didn't want to or couldn't answer my questions about what a specific flavor (pomegranate berry) had or didn't have in it as far as "energy enhancers". I was transferred to their "salesman" who is an "avid biker". Voicemail and no call back after several days. No answer is an answer.
Cytomax may be good stuff but when I see such ambiguity and apparent evasiveness in just what it is and get the runaround, I won't put it in my body. It sounds like they have something to hide and it's fact that they won't answer simple questions. If you like it, good, keep using it. If you're wondering about it, re-read. That's just my experience in trying to decode their anecdotal claims with no help from them.
