 Carbohydrates

  Calories (8 oz serving) 80 68
  Complex Carbs 14 g 6.5 g
  Sugars (% of total carbs) 29% 55%

Dextrose
  Maltodextrin is the preferred carbohydrate source for endurance athletes and as such it is the primary ingredient in e-Fuel as well as most other good products on the market (read why). Cytomax is 55% simple sugars. The danger of high sugar content products such as Cytomax is that they can elevate your blood sugar level too far too fast which can lead to a sugar crash (also known as bonking). Higher sugar content also raises the osmolality of the product which can reduce energy delivery, delay fluid absorption and promote dehydration. read more

 Stomach Issues
  Sugar Substitutes
 
None Stevia
  Flavors 100% Natural Natural and Artificial
  According to WebMD: Stevia and chemicals contained in stevia, including stevioside and rebaudioside A, can cause bloating or nausea. Other people have reported feelings of dizziness, muscle pain, and numbness. Using ingredients that cause stomach distress is the last thing that an athlete would want to deal with, so none of these ingredients are found in e-Fuel or e-Gel.

 Electrolytes    
  Sodium 150 mg 90 mg
  Potassium 60 mg 45 mg
  e-Fuel is designed to provide complete and balanced electrolyte replacement that is critical for proper hydration and to avoid muscle cramping. The sodium and potassium levels in e-Fuel are designed to meet the American College of Sports Medicine's recommendation for electrolyte replacement during intense athletic activity.

 Citrates    
  Sodium Citrate
  Potassium Citrate
  Citric Acid
  The Citrates in e-Fuel assist in the carbohydrate to energy conversion process as well as reduce and slow the build-up of lactic acid in your muscles.

 Antioxidants    
  Vitamin E 60% 0%
  Vitamin C 60% 75%
  e-Fuel is one of the few sports drinks on the market that contains antioxidant vitamins C and E to help protect against tissue damage, reduce soreness and aid in the recovery process.

Ingredient Information and Explanation

  
Protein
Neither Cytomax or e-Fuel contain protein but there is a lot of mis-information that has been published regarding the benefits of protein in your sports drink. Protein has to go through a digestive process which draws blood away from working muscles to the stomach and intestines. When you are competing in an aerobic activity you want as much blood as possible supplied to your muscles carrying fresh oxygen for the energy conversion process. Consequently, independent studies have found no benefit of protein in a sports drink. Save the protein for your recovery drink. See the following article from the American College of Sports Medicine for a more complete discussion:

Failure of Protein to Improve Performance when Added to a Sports Drink

Protein-added Sports Drinks Don't Boost Performance
