Cytomax with sustained energy. No other sports drink can match Cytomax's proven performance. University studies have proven that Cytomax: Lowers acid level during and after training for less burning and cramping during exercise and less soreness afterwards...So You Can Beat The Burn! Stabilizes power output during intense exercise for more strength - especially towards the end of your workout. Reduces perceived exertion so you feel less fatigued during training. Improves end exercise sprint capacity. Increases recuperation rate - from one workout day to the next. These results are possible due to the inclusion of a unique, exclusive, energy component: Alpha-L-Polylactate (lactate with acid removed, clustered around amino acids and carbohydrates). This proprietary lactate is efficiently used as a fuel faster than other carbohydrates and provides energy as well. In addition, it enters the blood stream and tissues faster than a single carbohydrate source, and is utilized more efficiently. The lactate (in Alpha-L-Polylactate) is utilized more efficiently - all while decreasing tissue acidity. Alpha-L-Polylactate - when combined with our multiple carbohydrate blend - gives you sustained energy. In University studies, athletes had better performance after three hours of intense exercise with Cytomax than with another leading sports drink. In addition, Cytomax contains electrolytes - including sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium for optimal hydration. Cytomax does not contain artificial FD&C colors or artificial sweetener. Since we founded CytoSport in 1998, we've been dedicated to working with sports scientists, coaches and trainers to redefine protein enhanced products for active lifestyles and serious athletes - supporting performance when it matters. Over the years, we've expanded to create a comprehensive line that encompasses the athletic experience from preparation, to hydration, to recovery. Our products are among the very few that are subjected to third party independent testing to ensure they are manufactured in compliance with NSF International's GMP for Sport Registration. Our facilities are also inspected and regulated by the FDA. We carefully manufacture our powder products and ready-to-drink pre-blends onsite at our corporate campus in Benicia, California. Making responsible and efficacious products for athletes and active lifestyle individuals requires responsibility on all fronts. As our business has grown, so has our footprint. We have made environmental sustainability a focus and driver in everyday decision making.

Our proprietary “Star-Rating” system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.
For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.
Bitter herbs are thought to stimulate digestive function by increasing saliva production and promoting both stomach acid and digestive enzyme production.1 As a result, they are particularly used when there is low stomach acid but not in heartburn (where too much stomach acid could initially exacerbate the situation). These herbs literally taste bitter. Some examples of bitter herbs include greater celandine, wormwood, gentian,dandelion, blessed thistle, yarrow, devil’s claw, bitter orange, bitter melon, juniper, andrographis, prickly ash, and centaury.2. Bitters are generally taken either by mixing 1–3 ml tincture into water and sipping slowly 10–30 minutes before eating, or by making tea, which is also sipped slowly before eating.
Very little published research is available on the traditional uses of bitter orange as a digestive aid and sedative. The German Commission E has approved the use of bitter orange for loss of appetite and dyspeptic ailments.3 One test tube study showed bitter orange to potently inhibit rotavirus (a cause of diarrhea in infants and young children).4 Bitter orange, in an herbal combination formula, reportedly normalized stool function and completely eased intestinal pain in 24 people with non-specific colitis and, again in an herbal combination formula, normalized stool function in another 32 people with constipation.5, 6

The dried outer peel of the fruit of bitter orange, with the white pulp layer removed, is used medicinally. The leaves are also commonly used in many folk traditions. The bitter orange tree is indigenous to eastern Africa, Arabia, and Syria, and cultivated in Spain, Italy, and North America.
