          Tried every HEED flavor and orange is best. It goes down easier than cytomax or accelerade especially when ur on the limit and need hydration. It dissolves quickly in water and has been the gentlest on my stomach. I rarely use it in events under an hour, for those I will make a pre-race drink and have it before. Not only does it not contribute to bloating or sour stomach, but it doesn't give me that sugary stomach like gatorade or a flat soda.

            I started taking HEED when I got tired of drinking Gatorade. HEED's taste is lighter and not as sugary ... No GI issues or muscle cramps even during hot marathon conditions ... I mix HEED Mandarin Orange with Hammer Sustained Energy NonFlavored ... And I have a power house fuel that tastes like a creamsicle and meets all my hydration and fuel needs during and post competition.

                I love the Hammer products. One of my favorite things about HEED is it's super-mild taste...you can mix it double- or triple-strength if necessary for long events and your drink will still be palatable. Also, for me at least, it's one of the few that don't cause me gastric upset. Great stuff!

                    dissolves easily, more economical in bulk pack, flavors are not fake artificial tasting that starts tasting real bad after the first 10 miles. Having longer chain carbohydrates, you avoid the sugar peaks and falls of drinking straight sucrose, or heaven forbid, high fructose corn syrup. You're an athlete, not being sponsored by a soda pop maker, after all. When traveling to a race, I measure out a couple of scoops into the empty water bottle to put in my luggage, then just add water the night before the race.

                      I've been using Hammer Recoverite (which makes such a difference for recovery after long runs) so I tried this - what a difference. I've tried various gels and chews, but really felt a difference running a 15 miler last week. My energy level stayed very constant, and I kept my pace through the run. I often drop off pace the last couple miles. I'm sold.

                        I am a "middle of the pack" runner but I still need something to keep me going on longer runs. Heed gives me what I need to keep pushing my limits. When I am exhausted the last thing I want is a sugary sweet sports drink. Heed's subtle flavor hits the spot.

                        I freeze a small amount of water in the bottom of my bottle. Then I add mixed Heed to fill my bottle. During a longer run my last drink is as cold as the first one. AHHHHH!...one more mile.

                          Hammer focuses on a good product, not taste. This is what you want in a good race drink. You may have to mix up the flavors. After a whole container of one, it does get old.

                                    I've been using HEED for a few years and really like it. It has a subtle flavor that doesn't start to taste overly sweet at the end of long rides or runs. The benefit there is that since it continues to taste good, you're more likely to stick to your hydration schedule.

                                    Much of this subdued flavor is thanks to the use of maltodextrin as the source of calories. This is a slow digesting carb relative to, say, glucose, dextrose or sucrose, which is more prevalent in other sports drinks. My stomach has had problem using drinks with these simple sugars, particularly on events over 3 hours. By switching to HEED an other hammer products that get calories from maltodextrin, this problem has largely faded.

                                    My only gripe is that the sodium level is a little low for heavy sweaters or hot, humid conditions. HEED provides ~100mg/serving. Since I need about 500mg/hr for hot events, I supplement with Hammer Endurolytes. These can be taken in pill form or premixed into your drink.
