A refreshing drink after workouts that helps you recover quick!

If you are looking for a refreshing start and/or finish to your workout, that can help your body recover faster, you must try the Cytomax Sport's Drink.

What is it? It's a powder that you mix with (preferably cold) water. It is perfect before and after workouts, and helps to prevent soreness and tension in your muscles. It contains complex carbohydrates and electrolytes which gives your body energy during your workouts.

When should you drink it? I prefer to drink them at the end of my running workouts, but you can do it before, during (if you bike ride or if you don't mind holding a water bottle during your workout), and after workouts.

What does it taste like? The taste is very sweet. This would be my only complaint. It comes in a variety of flavors, I prefer the Cool Citrus myself (I have yet to try some of the new flavors- Pomegranate Berry sound delicious!). Just a one ounce scoop (provided to you when you purchase it) to an 8 oz. glass of water and you are good to go! Sometimes I use half a scoop just to die down the sweetness- and it still gives me the same results.

Why should you care? I am able to run up to 10-12 miles and not feel sore the next day, and I believe it is because of this drink. I think it allows you to push yourself further physically, and helps your body to recover faster. The canister costs between $20-$30 and lasts for a long time. I run at least 4 times a week and find each canister to last about 3-4 months.

It is not a diet supplement and is very similar to having gatorade at the end of a workout. I just feel that with the added carbohydrates, it is just the right amount of substance that your body needs after a workout. It's a great replacement for water (what I used to have after a long workout) and it tastes a lot better.

Nicole good review, very helpful. I remember using Cytomax, I want to say in the late 90's when I lived in NYC. I was a great drink and did everything as advertised, but I remember it being expensive. You chalk up the expense to being in NYC.... But after reading your review and being close to 40 years old and getting sore just picking up my little girl, I decided to search for some Cytomax. Well they are still expensive. I am picking some up today, you sold me. The cost is worth the reward at 39 years old, now only if Costco would carry it.

Sounds like something that should be post-workout staple. Nice review with good personal use imagery. :D

This sounds like a cheap, tasty, and easy beverage. As a long time track coach my research has found that skim chocolate milk is the best post-workout beverage. It is high in protein, calcium, and carbohydrates, which all are very important for a quick recovery and strength builder after a hard workout.

I just started the P90x lean workout and I've been considering something like this for after my workouts. Given how sore I've been, this might be the perfect solution! Thanks for the suggestion!

Ahh...the P90X. My friends and I have started it 3 times. We've only made it about 3 weeks in and a major scheduling conflict gets in the way.

I agree, it definitely helps in recovery and make the next day much easier.... wish is wasn't so expensive.
