ES IST ÄUßERST PREISWERT.

As a recovery drink and unlike gels say, Rego provides more Carbohydrate per set weight. Furthermore combined with protein it'll assist in the uptake of the former.
Apart from being a British brand and produced in these Isles, it's also suitable for Vegans. This makes it unlike whey-based formulations such as the High 5 Energy Source 4:1.
I've tried both of these, and my experience with the High 5 product resulted in serious gastric problems. This may have been due to other things, but I've never encountered problems with any of the SIS product range -most of which is I believe Vegetarian if not Vegan.
Any weaknesses there are would probably be located around the specific nutritional value you're looking for in a recovery drink. I personally find Rego filling for approximately 100 minutes after vigorous or extended exercise. Frankly I couldn't care less that it contains slightly less Potassium and Sodium - among other things - than say the rather disgusting tasting High 5 product I refer to above.
I'm currently using the Vanilla version of SIS Rego whenever I feel or know I'll be worn out after a run. My first encounter with this product was a few years ago, and I must confess the Strawberry version I regularly consumed then was far more palatable (read tasty).
Whatever flavour takes your fancy - and I believe Banana, and Chocolate versions are also available - I'd definitely suggest you prepare and refrigerate it before you run out the door. If you can only make it up after a training session it'll still work, and certainly won't corrode your tum, but clearly won't taste as pleasant.
Although mixing up 100g of the stuff with 800ml of water is sufficient, I've only recently discovered - after purchasing my very first SIS one litre bottle - that shaking it up with the recommended full litre of water ensures a smoother consistency. Whatever way you go you'll find that no amount of manic shaking will integrate the few globules which remain. Incidentally you won't have any problems digesting these, even though they may look slightly unsightly through the bottle.

EXCELLENT

Good taste, not at all heavy on the stomach
None that I have found
I had always felt that SIS were a bit pricey but after being given SIS electrolyte drinks at the Salomon South Downs Marathon, I'm hooked.

DOES WHAT IT SAYS ON THE TIN (OKAY PLASTIC BOTTLE!)

The chocolate is great, the strawberry I got used to, the banana is FOUL!. It me a little to get it mixed properly, but now it is my stample when I walk in the door after 15+ miles runs.
The 'thicker' consistency is a love/hate thing, my wife tried it once and it started her gagging!
I've tried all the other major brand recovery style drinks and this is my favourite. A litre is always waiting in the fridge after a long run.

A SPOON (OR THREE) FULL OF SUGAR

It assists my recovery... hmm not much else to say
I think the flavour may be based on GM uber sweet strawberries ... but grin and bare it, its good for you!
It works and helps me to train harder and prepare for the next challenge... but will be trying other flavours once I've finished my batch of strawberry as it is far too sweet for me.
