Sustained Endurance Rides & Long Summits
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've been using the Sustained Energy since the early days (1995) of Hammer Nutrition (eCaps). It was a shocker at first for my system because of the unflavored taste which was a change from all the other energy sources who juice up the bad tasting products with unnatural flavoring which can lead to gastrointestinal problems. I found this to be a great product for long endurance rides and I used it for a UMCA Michigan state record along with many other endurance events with awesome results. I also found that adding some of the Hammer Gel would give me a flavor and keeping my taste-buds and body happier.
Not a cyclist?
Well this also has been part of my mountaineering nutrition and it'll add more energy for those long summit attempts where gels alone won't cut it.
Does this contain any milk/whey products?...
Does this contain any milk/whey products? I'm lactose intolerant and have been having difficulties finding a sports drink that I can use. I need one that can provide carbs, protein, and electrolytes. Suggestions? I'll be using it for long distance hiking in hot temps, as well as running, cycling, and swimming.
It does not contain any dairy products or whey, however it is processed in a facility that also processes dairy ingredients.
