Is Your Energy Drink Safe? The Truth about Energy Drinks and What to Look for in a HEALTHY Energy Drink

What do you know about Energy Drinks?  Are energy drinks safe or are they really as dangerous as we sometimes hear?  Whether you love them or not, the the energy drink industry has grown and spread like crazy over the past 10 years or so.  Energy drinks are available almost everywhere you go with teenagers being the highest consumers.  So what do we need to know about energy drinks and what should we be looking out for in safer alternatives?  
What is the Truth about Energy Drinks and their Safety?
The reality these days is that with the busy pace of our lifestyles the lure and benefit of a quick energy boost from an energy drink is so enticing, but with most of the energy drinks available on the market we just don't have many safe choices.  So it becomes even more important to look for an energy drink that is actually safe and healthy.
The most popular energy drinks on the market right now are Red Bull, Monster and Rockstar and a good part of the reason why we are being steered away from them is due to the high levels of sugar, chemicals and synthetic caffeine.  Just one can of the typical energy drink can have up to 12 teaspoons of sugar or more as well as the caffeine content of about four cups of coffee.  When consumed in moderation, they are "unhealthy" at best, but of course when over-consumed and even mixed with alcohol the combination can be lethal.

So, What is a Better Choice?  Are there any truly Healthy Energy Drinks out there?
The important thing to be aware of with the caffeine being warned about in regular energy drinks is that it isn't real caffeine at all but a synthetic chemical.  And the alternative created by God in nature is something called bio-caffeine and perfectly safe when consumed with moderation (as with any food or drink).
There are, in fact, safe and even healthy alternatives to the dangerous energy drinks on the market and these will include ingredients such as organic green tea and adaptogens.  

Time for a Better Choice

A clean energy solution is needed now more than ever. A National Safety Council survey reported that 43% of Americans say they do not get enough sleep. More adults than ever are feeling low on energy and are looking for a solution they can feel good about.
The good news is, with recent scientific advancements, there are newer alternatives to the popular, name-brand energy drinks. You no longer have to settle for artificial flavors and sweeteners. Always be sure to read the labels on energy drinks and investigate the ingredients. Your body will thank you! (Read more about the problem with Traditional Energy Drinks)

What to look for in a Healthy Energy Drink?
  1. Natural Energy Source such as Green Tea
  2. Adaptogens to help fight stress and improve overall energy and well-being
  3. Vitamins and Minerals
  4. Fruits and Veggies
  5. Low in Sugar (no artificial sweeteners such as sucralose or splenda) good natural sweetener options that are still very low in carbs would be erythritol, stevia and monk fruit
