I have generally avoided energy drinks because most of them taste awful and make me gag (no joke, I really struggle with them). The main issue I suffer from is cramping after three or four hours, especially when it’s warm. It would appear that loss of electrolytes is my main issue.
The drinks I have tried have mainly been isotonic ones to combat this but it these with the worst after taste.
I tried a free sachet of High5 Energy source last weekend and it was bearable. This is primarily an energy source, but the bumpf mentions key electrolytes. Is this likely to have any benefit or do I need a full on isotonic drink?
If it is the latter, can anyone recommend one that doesn't taste too metallic (so far I've only really the High5 Zero stuff).
