Game isotonic powder

Recommended Posts

Good day gents,

 

I ran out of my usual Octane Version 4 last week. I wanted to replace it, but the store had no stock. I thus went with the Game packets as I did not want to buy other brands.

After I started sipping the game on my Saturday ride my stomach immediately started rumbling and it felt unsettled, but I could still nip it...My eating wasn't to great Saturday after a 3:30 hour ride either. The Sunday afternoon I had diarhea the whole day and took Reuteri and it worked out it seems. I took off yesterday to be safe, but feel a bit weak today.

 

My question could it be the game that caused this?

Seems a bit unlikely. Game is used by all and sundry without ill-effects. I use when I'm out of 'better' stuff, and sometimes wonder why I don't just use it all the time. I dilute it 1.5 to 1 tho as it seems a bit 'concentrated' for me.

Nope its not the Game. I use Game for everything from week-day runs, IM and week-long bike tours. Works for me and a lot cheaper than anything else worthwhile on the market.

I dont drink fizzy drinks at home and find fruit juice acidic.

Game is the ideal drink for home and on the bike

I buy it by the tub and mix 2L at a time.6 measures to 2 L water is not sweet at all

Looked at the carb content of a serving the other day and it was really low IMO, like 12g. Do you guys eat stuff with the Game or use gels etc ?

Doesn't seem like one would get sufficient energy from Game alone, unless you drink tons of it ?

1x bottle Game juice and 1x bottle water, with a PVM bar does just fine on a 3hr ride..........oh, and mix to taste and you'll not find so sweet.

Previously used USN / Biogen products, but no noticeable difference when started using Game - well that's besides the price.

The same thing happened to me the first time I used USN CytoPower. Since then, I've been fine.

 

Try the game again and see...

not the game. I bought a couple of sachets while i was down in the cape and without my normal gummi bear juice. Was quite surprised at its effectiveness. I diluted 1/2 a sachet per 750ml of water and it wasnt too sweet

I drink Game if I have to, because I find that it's quite bitter. Maybe I should switch to a different flavour. But I haven't had any problems when drinking it.
