    ...and it seems the future of Gerolsteiner may be in doubt too.

    Gerolsteiner say it's not just the drug scene that made them decide not to continue. Changes do happen from time to time that's not such a big deal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No they are an apatite suppressant to assist in weight loss.

    I think it's considered to be a stimulant; chemically it's related to amphetamines.

    As Chris says, its an appetite suppressant, so expect that a cyclist would be using it to help keep the weight down.

    Given that a lot of drugs need to be swallowed with water, then Gerolsteiner and cycling go together well! :blush:
