Athletes sometimes suffer through upset stomachs (and worse), cramps, undrinkable tastes, and juggling drinks, gels, pills, and chews. Nutrition should be simple to use and get the job done so you can focus on going fast.
That’s why Tailwind was created–made for endurance athletes by endurance athletes. Tailwind’s dextrose fuel is a form of clean glucose (the fuel that powers muscles and essential organs). It minimizes digestive effort and enters your system quickly, avoiding the stomach pile up that complex sugars and protein can cause.
I would agree with Tailwind’s other customers. Just dump it in your bottle, add water, and go. It’s not sweet and syrupy and it doesn’t give me stomach issues.
Apart from the powder easily escaping the pouches in a puff, this is a simple product that does what it advertises. I really appreciated the minimally sweet, minimally processed flavor. Laima thought she could detect the sea salt, which I didn’t notice, but you can read her whole review over at Women’s Endurance Gear.
I think what impressed me the most about Tailwind was that it tasted uniformly good when a minimal amount was used as well as when a stronger flavor was desired. The kids seemed to gravitate towards the lemon flavor the most, while I though the lemon and mandarin orange in a strong concentration was my favorite.
The berry flavor, while quite tasty, just wasn’t distinctive enough to overtake the other two flavors. The fact that they are organic is a tremendous bonus, as we really try to eschew things with harmful ingredients.
