Skratch. Really, really good, and easily tolerable. Alan Lim is pretty brilliant. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTLxmgEJG40

Nuun. It is easy on the stomach and is very easy to use with the tablets.

NormaLyte. It actually has FDA labeling so they have to scientifically support their claims unlike any of the other stuff we take.

You can buy it here:

I like Osmo. Not super strong taste and the flavor mixing tastes really good.

I will second the vote for skratch. Excellent stuff. Its amazing how it keeps tasting great, even after a lot of bottles on a long, hot day.

Try the Clif Bar Electrolyte Hydration drink mix. I like it because the flavor (Cran Razz or Lemon Lime) is light, it's got half the calories of full-on Gatorade, but all the electrolytes, and no artificial sweeteners. It's formulated to not over-sugar you when you're also taking Clif Shot energy gels, or Bloks or whatever solid fuel you're using. It's certified organic by QAI and the sweetener in it is Organic Glucose and Organic dried cane syrup. No GMOs.

Disclaimer, I'm one of their sponsored athletes, but I wouldn't recommend it if I didn't like it and use it all the time.

I also use Nuun. Not too sweet, which I prefer.

I make my own a mix of maltodextrin/a sugar, small amount of pea/rice protein mix, salt, dehydrated coconut water, and small amount of baking soda. Very glycemic and high insulin response, very dense in electrolytes.

I use nuun for shorter workouts where I don't need the extra carbs or calories. Longer workouts I use Skratch labs.

I use a mix of a few drops from 40,000 Volts Electrolyte Concentrate (by Trace Minerals), glutamine, BCAA, Hawaiian Punch single flavor to cover the BCAA in 24oz. water bottle.
I add/adjust maltodextrin based on the amount of time or distance of course. Most of the time I do not add maltodextrin for courses less than 40 miles and will use a single gel if needed.

Another vote for Nuun here. Great range of taste for everyone and even mix the tabs half/half to create even more.


I once saw a post a while back on another site which even gave recipes for making cocktails with them!!! Must try that soon!

Surprised to so see many Nuun lovers. I guess I'm one of the few that finds the fizzy texture unpalatable.

I'm also one of the few that loves Powerbar Perform. Have been using it for around 8 years now. Anything under an hour and I'll have water, if anything.
