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.

The only other comment/complaint that I have is that Heed spoils easily, I am not sure if this is a good or bad thing. It will usually start to smell different after 2 or 3 hours of riding in moderate heat, so I always mix it up with ice/water to delay the spoiling.
The small complaint above does not stop me from using Heed, I still think its the best hydration product I have found and have purchased multiple canisters throughout the years. I certainly think it is worth a try if you are trying to find your best hydration product for cycling.

I have a very fragile system when it comes to getting dehydrated and I can only attribute my success health wise in the race to drinking HEED in addition to water. It works like a charm, it doesn't taste bad but doesn't taste great either, so it could be improved in that regard but certainly tolerable and worth using if you are concerned about fatigue.
