Many medications and supplements on the market have side effects. Usually, potential side effects are classified into two main categories: general/frequent, and rare. To determine whether you should be using Cytomax, an exercise aid, you need to know the potential side effects.
Cytomax is an exercise and recovery aid. It is a combination of electrolytes and carbohydrates. The formula is designed, according to Cytosport, to provide the right amount of hydration and energy while helping to keep fatigue levels to a minimum. Cytomax is also supposed to reduce the burning sensation that you feel after an intense workout, protect the muscle cells from damage, and help increase oxygen delivery during exercise.
Cytosport recommends taking Cytomax with water. The package directions state that you should mix between one and one-half a scoop of Cytomax powder with 16 ounces of water. It is recommended that you drink this mix at least 15 minutes before you begin exercising, as well as frequently throughout your workout session. Cytosport advises that you finish your workout with another dose of Cytomax. You also can use ready-made sports drinks in the Cytomax line, following the same schedule.
According to HGH Products, there have been numerous in-depth studies that showed that in athetes using Cytomax, lactic acid levels remained low and there was less muscle cramping. These studies also found that athletes who used Cytomax had less soreness after intense workouts.
Frequent Side Effects
According to Healthline, Cytomax contains complex carbohydrates that include maltodextrins and amylopectin starches, along with Alpha-L-Polylactate, fructose, and other ingredients. Because of the rather extensive ingredients list, it is common to experience some side effects. You can experience changes in your urine, which can include an increase in the alkaline level as a result of the potassium citrate. Healthline says that if you are diabetic or have other issues with sugar levels, you should seek the advice of your doctor because Cytomax contains fructose and dextrose, which can cause spikes in sugar levels. Some people experience minor stomach discomfort. These frequent side effects usually resolve within a few days as your body becomes acclimated to the formula.
Rare Side Effects
Rare side effects have occurred in some people who have repeatedly used Cytomax for exercise enhancement. These can include dizziness or fainting. Allergic reactions to ingredients in the formula are also rare. It is important to talk to your doctor about your desire to use Cytomax.
