    Replacement for Cytomax (Tangy Orange)

    So there's no more Cytomax (Tangy Orange)...
    what's are potential replacements, esp. wrt
    - taste (I tried Cytomax "Fresh Apple" and can't stand it)
    - nutritional value (Calories and Electrolytes etc)
    ?

    Why do you feel you have to buy a powder from a company? I don't.

    1/4 cup of organic sugar (no white sugar)
    pinch of Himalayan salt (no iodized salt)

    Presto.

    For flavor you can put in a little bit of apple juice on top or whatever kind of juice. Only takes a little bit to make the whole bottle taste like that juice out on the road.
    use a torque wrench

    Apple is definitely the worst Cytomax flavor. Citrus is a close second. The best one is Pomegranate Berry. Tropical fruit is good too. I buy a couple of the 4.5 lbs cans every year. You can find them on-line for around $25. It's good stuff. I've used it for years.
