By John A. Bertels on February 18, 2007
Flavor Name: Tangy OrangeSize: 4.5 Pound
As a distance runner, I have been a dedicated user of Cytomax since 1994. It's smooth, tastes great and delivers an even dose of the right blend of carbohydrates to help sustain energy levels. More importantly, it doesn't leave me with a "sugar crash" the way that some other popular name brands do.

The effect of Cytomax and reduction of perceived exertion/lactic acid buildup is evident anytime; however, it is most pronounced during summertime, when the body is working harder during longer training sessions. I would recommend following the product's directions to consume this before, during and after the training periods to obtain maximum effect.

Before the advent of the Internet and E-Commerce, I had tried others that were popular and commercially available, when I could not obtain Cytomax. Even recently, I obtained a sample of the EAS equivalent, which was highly touted. The bottom line is that all else pales in comparison to this product.

Flavor Name: Cool CitrusSize: 4.5 Pound
Remember when Coke came out with their new formula. It was a disaster for them. The company finally relented and brought back the original formula after losing significant market share. This is the same situation. I have been using this drink for years (Cool Citrus and Tropical Fruit) and I have been very happy with it. I am even subscribed to these mixes through Amazon's subscription program. I am ending those subscriptions and I'm not getting this stuff anymore. I recently received 4.5 pounds of Cool Citrus through the subscription program and didn't know that they changed the formula until I went on my ride and took my first few sips -- YUK!!! An excellent description another reviewer used to describe this stuff. The graphics on the packaging has changed with a small caption "Now with Stevia". I mixed 2 scoops with 24 ounces of water just like I used to except now this stuff with Stevia tastes like a rotten grapefruit. Maybe I'm mixing it too strong, but this is the amount stated on the label. I don't know the reason the old formula was abandoned. Did it contain potentially banned substances or dangerous ingredients? I hope not, but I know I can't stand the new formula. I would give the old formula 5 stars, but this stuff isn't worthy.

I have been drinking the former formula for years and I loved it. Now the new stuff tastes like crap. I ordered 4 large containers and will return all of them, it is the worst tasting stuff ever. Bring back the old formula.

New Coke?...seems the Cytosport folks are going to have to learn this lesson the hard way. I'll not purchase Cytomax again until they return to the old formula or at least improve the "new" one as it currently tastes terrible.

Hate!!! the new cytomax with stevia. If I wanted weird sweeteners like stevia, I could buy Hammer products, which I also despise. You have lost my business cytomax, and I'm really bummed because you had one of the few products that didn't upset my stomach.

Flavor Name: Tangy OrangeSize: 4.5 Pound Verified Purchase
I began drinking Cytomax for my bicycle rides in 1993. The flavor was a citrus or lemon-lime. I am big and have had huge quads since junior high and have, since high school, been prone to muscle cramps. My endurance with Cytomax increased from a struggling 40 mile ride to 60 and 70 miles rides. I also did a few 100s, but not without struggles and a 320 mile tour with a loaded bicycle.
I have tried other endurance products and they may work for other people and their physiology, but Cytomax has been my constant. I have added a product called EmergenC and pickle juice which both seem to increase my endurance over my personal limitations with only Cytomax and sports bars.
When I discovered orange, I tried it and enjoyed the flavor until it was changed to "herbal" and I stopped buying it because of the flavor. I alternated apple with citrus and eventually ordered grape which was better than I had expected. My favorite, all time, was the apple berry flavor, which was a surprise, because I can't usually stomach berry-flavored or punch flavored sports drinks. Tangy orange is nearer to the original flavor and I have started using it again. I still order apple when I can find it and often mix it with grape (50-50) which gives me a very satisfying taste, in my memory, similar to the apple berry flavor.
Of course this is my opinion and experience. I have ridden over 46,000 miles in the past nearly 22 years and Cytomax has been my staple, but I do wish they would stick with the flavors I like and stop changing the formula. These days I order Citrus, Orange, Grape, and Apple (if I can find it to mix with the grape).

A year ago I bought the Citrus flavor and it was quite good! But recently I bought the "new formula" doesn't dissolve nearly as well! (it clumps and sticks to the glass/water bottle) and its taste leaves much to be desired! I'm really disappointed in the new formula and I wouldn't recommend it!
