Hammer HEED is a step up from standard powder sports drinks. Hammer HEED is for endurance athletes looking to get the most out of their workout. Hammer realized that a problem with standard sports drinks is that they rely on simple sugars as the carbohydrate source. The use of simple sugar such as glucose, sucrose, and fructose not only severely limits the amount of calories that can be efficiently digested and utilized for energy; it causes fluctuations in your energy level. HEED avoids this by using a complex carbohydrate formula that allows you to obtain the proper amount of calories in a consistent prolonged manner. The consistency ensures your stomach isn’t distressed. The added chromium polynicotinate helps to maintain stable blood glucose levels and I- carmosine buffers lactic acid. HEED is in a class of its own in the world of powered sports drinks.

I use the Heed almost daily, whether I am riding or not it's that good. I use it along with other Hammer products when riding but this is my main weapon.
I put almost 2 full scoops in a taller water bottle and freeze it the night before a long ride. I mt bike almost 15 miles a day or every other day. I bring my pack with regular water and as the bottle defrosts through the ride I take regular drinks off of the Heed bottle. It works very affectively. I also use the Hammer Electrolyte Pills to help as well.
For added hydration and help for the ride I squeeze a Hammer gel Montana Huckleberry packet into the bottle prior to freezing.( Shhh, this is my secret recipe) It helps with even more sustainability on long rides and where weather is a factor.
It works very well later in the day after your ride when sitting around and you start to get a bit thirsty also. I hope this helps, it is truly a one of those products to have and as with most Hammer products they work well with other items by Hammer.
