I receive a lot of questions about all these new energy drinks that have beaten the market over the past few years. They seem to anger, especially with youth, and they promise you the world with outrageous claims of all super power you will need, and how to crush competition in their sport, and so on. Then a couple questions arise: are these energy drinks really good for you? Really do they increase your energy? Do they really have magic of some kind of energy formula? Will help you to lose weight? First of all, look at what most of these energy drinks is usually made of. Most is carbonated water simply charged with intestine-priming high fructose, caffeine, the amino acid taurine corn syrup, and a few random b-vitamins added to exposure to fool you into thinking there is something healthy about these mixtures. Let us start with high fructose corn syrup. Not bad Here we have managed to empty calories that will go directly to your belly fat, and that’s really still worse for you than refined, old and simple sugar. Well, so he said to have bajo-azucar or unsweetened varieties as an alternative to HFCS loaded with energy drinks. Yes, but now has the problem of harmful chemicals in artificial sweeteners.
Another problem with artificial sweeteners is that there are some investigators who believe the artificial sweetener use targeting people inadvertently consume more calories and gain more weight in the long term. I will not go details about that because that would fill a whole discussion by itself. Just trust me that artificial sweeteners and artificial chemicals in food in general, are bad news for your body! Do about caffeine? Well, first and foremost, caffeine in same provides no energy. Technically, the only substances that provide energy are actually calories (the carbohydrate, protein, and FAT). However, caffeine can be a help to encourage or awaken to a some people above, by means of stimulating the central nervous system. Keep in mind though, if it is a regular coffee drinker, he is probably addicted to caffeine and probably would not receive too much benefit of caffeine in a drink of energy of all modes.
In addition, instead of caffeine added to some soft drink, I’d rather get my caffeine from a natural source such as green, white, or teas of black tea, which also provide healthy antioxidants really! Now about that so called magic of taurine and b-vitamins that loaded in these energy drinks mixed? Well, the big deal. ..You can get taurine in almost any protein source. And the vast majority of those b-vitamins comes just the right out in the bathroom in your pee. Vitamins are best obtained naturally from real sources of food, not artificially added to some soft drink. Your body not only uses false sources of vitamins as easily as natural sources of the real food. Then as you can see, in my opinion, I give all these energy takes a large time down thumbs! ANDA better mixing your own drink homemade of power with some ice unsweetened cream, green, white, and black tea, some 100% pure teas juice Berry or granada, and perhaps a touch of a no-desnaturalizado of serum protein. Well, I hope that this article clarify part of the confusion about these energy drinks that is so sold a lot these days, and will help you make more informed decisions for your health.
