I'll 2nd Vitalyte. Been using it since I raced in the '70s. (It changed names several times. It used to be GookinAid and ERG, then Hydrolyte.) I have been using 2 scoops per bottle forever.

The stuff works to keep electrolytes up, tastes clean and has never made me sick. In fact, I drink it when I have a stomach bug and know it's coming back up because I know my body needs what is can get out of it while it's down. And it tasted OK coming back. Another plus is that is is cheap, about 45 cents/bottle for two scoops.

REI carries it and will order it for you if it isn't in stock. (The Portland REI stopped carrying it a couple of years ago for a while. Then it reappeared. I commented on that and an employee told me that they (the employees) insisted it be back on the shelves. They used it.)
