    Home Made Energy Drink Recipe

    thought you would enjoy this. An ultra-marithoner I know gave me his recipe for a clean energy drink.

    5 ½ Cups Maltodextrin
    1/2 Cup Sugar (sometimes I use Agave Syrup for less Hypo-glycemic effect)
    1 ½ Teaspoon Salt
    1 ½ Teaspoon Lite Salt
    1 package unsweetened Koolaid.


    Adjust Salt and Lite Salt to individual needs. Makes about 12 – 24 oz. bottles with 200 Calories. 25 Lbs. of Maltodextrin lasts me about a year.

    Cost is about $0.50 per $24oz of solution

    As an after workput replacement I add some Whey protein Isolate for anabolism.

    Timing of nutritional supplementation get kinda technical but if your interested:

    Read up on agave. It's supposedly worse than high fructose corn syrup on the glycemic end of things.

    Dardeau, Curious where you gathering your information? Agave has a much lower Glycemic Index than HFC. I think you're confusing artificial sweeteners with Agave.

    The issue with Agave isn't the GI, it is how the body processes it. Agave sugar is mainly a fructose type of sugar processed through the liver like alcohol and generally is stored as fat and run through the bloodstream, while glucose sugars are absorbed through the lower intestine. From what I had read about it in my dad's cancer info, agave syrup is about 70 to 90 percent fructose and high fructose corn syrup is 55 percent fructose even though it has a significantly higher GI.

    The GI for malto-dextrin generally runs from 85 to 110, so if you are worried about the GI affecting sugar spiking - there you go.
