Cytomax Lite by Cytosport
Cytomax Exercise and Recovery Drink, Lite Lemon Ice Tea is a scientifically advanced energy drink, providing complex carbohydrates for sustained energy with a special lactic acid buffering agent to reduce muscle fatigue during exercise. Drinking Cytomax during and after workouts helps prevent the post-exercise fatigue that occurs when you deplete your cellular energy stores.

• Steady Energy: Complex carbs stabilize blood sugar during exercise - no sugar crash
• Cell Protection: antioxidants prevent exercise-induced free radical damage to muscle cells
• Oxygen Delivery: succinates enhance oxygen delivery by up to 11% during exercise, reducing perceived exertion and minimizing muscle damage
• Cellular Balance: Electrolytes ensure cellular nutrient balance is restored quickly after exercise
• Low Osmoality: ensures fluid reaches your muscles quickly - as fast as water!

Cytomax with sustained energy: No other exercise drink can match Cytomax's proven performance. University studies have proven that Cytomax: Lowers lactic acid level during and after training by 40% for less burning and cramping during training and less soreness after... so you can beat the burn! Stabilizes power output during intense exercise by over 10% for more strength-especially towards the end of your workout. Reduces perceived exertion by 20% so you feel less fatigued during training. Reduces oxygen consumption rate by 11% at the same performance level. This leaves you with more wind (more of VO2-max remaining) for even higher performance. Increases recuperation rate by over 10% to reduce frustrating strength variations from one workout day to the next. In addition, Cytomax contains electrolytes, no sucrose, and just enough sodium. These results are possible because of the discovery of a unique, patented, new energy component: Alpha L-Polylactate (lactate with acid removed, clustered around amino acids and carbohydrates). This type of lactate is efficiently used for energy, like carbohydrate, but enters tissue 2-10 times faster and decreases tissue acidity. (1,2,3,4). Alpha L-Polylactate combines with our special complex carbohydrates gives you sustained energy. This means that in University studies, athletes had better performance after 3 hours of intense exercise with Cytomax than with another leading exercise drink. Cytomax helps keep strength at peak levels longer so you can train harder. If you are trying to improve stamina and speed, Cytomax will help you exercise longer with greater comfort. You will be able to expend more calories with less muscle loss. Cytomax's lactate-based calories are ideal because they are not easily converted to fat (5,6). Reference: 1, Med. Sci.
