What is Shirley Temple Drink?

Shirley Temple Drink is a bright pink-colored fizzy non-alcoholic drink made with grenadine syrup, ginger ale, lemon-lime soda, and maraschino cherries. It is one of the kids-friendly drinks and known to be one of the first mocktail drinks prepared for the actress Shirley Temple.

It was said that the drink was first prepared for the actress in the 1930s. As a child star, she often attended many parties with adults where she could not enjoy alcoholic drinks that were prepared for adults. Hence the bartenders prepared a mocktail using the basic non-alcoholic syrup, soda, and cherries. Since then the drink became popular across the United States and enjoyed by kids and adults.

This bubbly and refreshing drink is one of the simplest drinks to make and you can enjoy it as a party treat or summer refreshment.

Ingredients

  • Ginger Ale – I have used 4 ounce here, you can also feel free to skip and use lemon lime soda. If you are using lemon soda alone then use 6 ounce of it

Worst Energy Drinks (Unbiased) – REIZECLUB

Before anything else, I just want to say that anything that I would say in this article is just my personal perspective based on my own experience. I’m simply going to express my own thoughts here.

My goal for this article is not to put a bad name for certain energy drinks brands that I will be mentioning but to give you, my readers, an informed decision on what energy drink to consume. You are highly encouraged to do your own research.

In my opinion, it’s best to avoid energy drinks that have a lot of caffeine, sugar, and calories since excessive consumption of those can lead to adverse health effects.

So, without further ado here’s my unbiased review on the worst energy drinks I’ve ever tried!

What Makes an Energy Drink Bad?

Just so we’re clear, drinking energy drinks in moderation is unlikely to have any adverse effects on your health. It’s important to note that certain beverages are only dangerous when consumed at large doses.

The reason for this is that energy drinks are loaded with caffeine, leading to dehydration and an increased risk of kidney stones if consumed in excess.

Furthermore, energy drinks are loaded with sugar and calories which aren’t essential for a healthy lifestyle. For the most part, they’re less than half of what the FDA recommends.

These are some of the probable long-term consequences of excessive energy drink intake.

In short, containing too much caffeine, sugar, and calories is what makes an energy drink not good.

Check out this video if you’d like to learn more about caffeine and its adverse effects on the body when consumed in excess.

Is Red Bull Worse than Monster?

Quite the opposite! In fact, more than twice as much caffeine is found in Monster than in Red Bull energy drinks.

This is one of the most important differences between the two. Red Bull and Monster both contain caffeine, but we can see that Monster has twice as much, having 160mg per 16 fl oz can.

There is a point to this argument, though. The cans from these two brands differ in size.

However, if we look at the caffeine content of half the can of Monster (8 fluid ounces), we’ll find that it would have the same amount of caffeine as Red Bull (8.4 fluid ounces). To put it another way, Monster has a somewhat higher potency per fluid ounce than Red Bull.

To sum up, both energy drinks are market leaders, and it’s not hard to know why; Both deliver a big energy boost at a reasonable price and have been around enough to conclude that they are reliable.

Both brands give an enjoyable energy drink experience, thanks to their high sugar and carbohydrate content. However, that may be a significant roadblock since you also have to take your health into an account.

What Energy Drinks are Toxic?

As I’ll explain in a minute, 5 Hour Energy is the most toxic, in my opinion.

When too many of these shots are consumed, a series of unfortunate unfold events. This is because each shot of 5 Hour Energy contains 200mg of caffeine and that much caffeine in such a small volume (1.93 fl oz) can be dangerous.

In addition, the tiny volume of 5 Hour Energy means you’ll be guzzling it rapidly, which means you’ll be consuming a lot more caffeine in a shorter period than you’re acccustomed to.

However, if your caffeine metabolism is robust enough, a shot of 5 Hour Energy is undoubtedly faster and more potent than the average energy drink.

But since my preferred caffeine dosage ranges from 50 to 100 mg per serving, the high caffeine content in 5 Hour Energy isn’t something I really like.

5 Hour Energy Ingredients

What’s the Worst Energy Drink?

Rockstar Energy drinks may have a catchy name and can deliver a quick burst of energy, but that’s about where the perks stop for me. These beverages are not good for you in terms of nutrition, mainly because of their sugar content.

Just so you know, a typical 240-milliliter serving of Rockstar energy drink has 31 grams of sugar in addition to a variety of ingredients. There are two servings in each 480-milliliter can, and each serving has 62 grams of sugar, which is a lot of sugar.

There is no need to be a health expert to realize that’s quite a bit. It’s a lot higher than the maximum daily allowance of 6-9 teaspoons of added sugar recommended by the AHA, even if you keep to one serving.

Overconsumption of added sugar has been related to several health problems, including an increased risk of stroke and heart attack, which I think this energy drink is a NO for me.

What Energy Drink is the Least Bad for you?

for me, Runa is probably the least harmful energy drink on the market.

RUNA is a healthier option for energy drinks in terms of calories and sugars.

To put it simply, the Amazonian super leaf Guayusa, which is naturally rich in antioxidants and caffeine, is the source of RUNA’s energy-giving power. Not to mention, RUNA energy drinks are both gluten-free and vegan-friendly.

It’s more critical than ever for university students, career men and women, athletes, and gamers to have a little pick-me-up today. However, with RUNA’s new beverage mix and revamped brand, people can now obtain their caffeine fix more conveniently than ever before.

I’m confident that you’ll like the reformulated RUNA because of its organic components and low-calorie taste.

Energy Drinks You Should Try

Listed below is a selection of must-try energy drinks that I know you’ll like.

Energy Drinks Caffeine Sugar Calories
Advocare Spark 120 mg 0 g 20 cal
GURU Energy 100 mg 18 g 80 cal
REIZE (10 out of 10) 50 mg 0 g 11 cal
Energy Drinks You Should Try

Advocare Spark

Advocare Spark‘s components and overall flavor are relatively clean compared to other powdered energy drinks.

As a bonus, although it includes artificial sweeteners like sucralose, Advocare Spark does not contain any sugars.

In terms of affordability, it costs $2.20 per serving. Considering that, Advocare Spark is a really reasonable price for an energy drink.

GURU Energy

GURU Energy may be an excellent option for you because of its fresh flavor and organic components.

To top it all off, Guru uses only natural compounds derived from plants and does not contain any preservatives, minerals, or B vitamins in its formulations. Also, GURU 8.4 fl. oz. may include 100mg of caffeine, which is reasonable compared to other energy drinks on the market.

If you want to drink anything beneficial to your health, you should stick to drinking water. Even still, you have to give GURU justice when it comes to nutrition, as it went to great lengths to eliminate synthetic ingredients and additives.

REIZE (Must-Try)

You haven’t really tasted it all if you haven’t tried REIZE yet!

If you’re looking for something that isn’t too much or too little in terms of caffeine, this is it.

Not to mention the fact that you’d need to down eight packs of REIZE to exceed the recommended daily intake. Also, you don’t have to worry about your sugar intake with REIZE since it is sugar-free!

In addition, it includes several beneficial components, such as ginseng and Taurine. And what’s even better? For only $1 for each sachet, you can get a serving of it shipped to your home!

You can’t beat the price of this energy drink, either. How long have you been sleeping on this? Get your hands on REIZE right now!

Other Energy Drinks to Try:

Verdict

Energy drinks packed with sugar and caffeine don’t even come close to providing the total health benefits we’re looking for in this day and age. But, like with everything in life, moderation is key.

Drinking one can of energy drink isn’t expected to have any long-term damaging consequences. But as a rule of thumb, it’s best to avoid drinking them regularly and it’s not recommended that you should rely entirely on them for your daily energy needs.

Still, nothing beats drinking lots of water, having plenty of sleep, living an active lifestyle, and eating a balanced diet.

Why Do Energy Drinks Make Me Tired? (Find Out) – REIZECLUB

In spite of the fact that caffeine is a stimulant that enhances alertness, it might actually cause you to feel sleepy. This is because if you consume too much caffeine, your body will develop a tolerance to the substance, so it won’t keep you awake the same way as it did previously.

That’s weird, isn’t it? Shouldn’t an energy drink give me energy instead of making me feel tired? Well, the answer to that is not so simple, given the fact that chemistry and biochemistry are complicated matters.

Through this article, I will try to shed some light on this subject. So keep reading until the end to find out why energy drinks make you feel tired sometimes.

Why Does Caffeine Make Me Sleepy Immediately?

Caffeine causes havoc within your body’s natural processes. According, your brain produces even more adenosine in an effort to counteract the overstimulation. This is why, the moment you down that can of energy drink, you may immediately feel sleepy.

Notwithstanding the fact that your body has likely developed a tolerance to the stimulant effects of coffee that prevents you from feeling awake and energetic throughout the day.

To put it simply, a frequent intake of caffeine may cause your body to develop more adenosine receptors because caffeine prevents the effects of adenosine. So, as a rule of thumb, the more receptors you have, the less effective the energy drink is as a stimulant in the long run.

With that in mind, the FDA recommends that you consume no more than 400 milligrams of caffeine daily since excessive intake has been linked to many adverse health impacts and conditions. As a result, overindulgence may be harmful and even fatal in extreme cases.

Examples of these are:

  • Sugar crashes
  • Dehydration
  • Vomiting
  • Elevated blood pressure
  • Dizziness

Do you love starting your day with coffee? This video may come as a shock to you but I recommend you watch it.

Can Energy Drinks have the Opposite Effect?

They certainly do! Drinking energy beverages does not guarantee you the same benefits everyone is raving about!

Now, caffeine may be the obvious culprit in these energy-buzzing beverages, but a sugar crash should also be blamed.

It’s no secret that the majority of the population like their drinks sweet. Therefore some energy drinks manufacturers fill their products with sugar. That is why overconsumption of energy drinks raises insulin levels in the body.

With that, your blood sugar levels fall as a result of the insulin, which in return, will let you feel all sorts of side effects such as drowsiness.

As a result, it becomes a product that’s the complete antithesis of what energy drinks are all about.

What Ingredients in Energy Drinks Help with Tiredness?

Thanks to caffeine, you may get a short burst of energy from energy drinks. However, your caffeine tolerance should be considered while looking for an energy drink that can help keep you alert.

Furthermore, an energy drink’s energizing effects may be partly attributed to Guarana’s presence. Basically, Guarana is naturally high in caffeine, and it enhances the caffeine results in these beverages, making you feel more awake and energetic.

Not to mention, it is also well-known that Guarana has several advantages, including enhanced physical and mental efficiency.

How Do I Boost my Energy when I’m Tired?

There’s no need to chug cans of energy drinks to get through the day. Here are a few things to consume or do to get those bones and muscles of yours revved up.

Drink Water

While working out or going about your day, it may be challenging to remember to drink enough water. Drinking water provides you more incredible energy to perform anything, from athletic feats to staying up doing study sessions.

Grab a Bite

Your body’s energy levels may be boosted or drained by the food you eat. In fact, when you don’t get enough fuel for your body, your energy and mood will decline.

In particular, every bite we take turns into glucose, which powers our brains and keeps us sharp. For whatever reason, our attention tends to wander when we’re running short on glucose. This explains why it’s so difficult to do anything when you haven’t had anything yet for breakfast.

Exercise

Exercising may be the last thing on your mind when you’re tired. However, I’m here to tell you that exercising can be the most beneficial thing you can do for your body and activity levels.

Generally speaking, most people’s daytime energy levels increase directly in proportion to their productivity. You may get it while you work out since your brain releases endorphins when you work out.

Think of it as setting the moment, to keep your ball rolling.

Energy Drinks to Try

Feeling so tired in the morning even before the day even starts is a bummer. I’m not foreign to that feeling so I suggest you try one of these sugar-free energy drinks to change things up!

Energy Drinks Caffeine Sugar
XS Energy 80 mg 0 g
Zipfizz 100 mg 0 g
REIZE (10 out of 10) 50 mg 0 g
Energy drinks you should try

XS Energy

If you want to feel more alert, try XS energy drink.

XS only offers 80mg of caffeine each can, which is a lot less than some of the more popular brands you may be accustomed to.

Indeed, the quantity of caffeine that you’re receiving here should be enough to keep you awake and prevent the adverse effects of a caffeine overdose.

Zipfizz

More than the fact that it is so easy to carry around because of its small size, Zipfizz is an excellent energy drink choice for those always on the go.

Just add Zipfizz powder to your favorite beverage and stir until dissolved. This refreshing energy drink is ready in just a few short minutes!

As with its sugar content, you won’t have to worry about a sugar crash since it is completely devoid of sugar.

Also, after drinking Zipfizz, you should start to feel the benefits in around 15 minutes. When you drink a Zipfizz, the caffeine will be completely absorbed into your system in about 45 minutes. Accordingly, the effects will be most pronounced at this point.

REIZE (Best Choice)

If you want to feel energized without the side effect of becoming tired, I suggest you try REIZE energy drink. My favorite, REIZE (albeit this is not a biased view), has all of your energy-boosting needs supplied in a pack.

It’s not only delicious, but it’s also packed with flavorful ingredients such as ginseng, taurine, and B vitamins.

Also, each serving has only 11 calories with no added sugar. This makes it a great alternative if you’re on a strict diet and don’t want to experience any crashes.

Not to mention, the caffeine content in each 4g sachet is a sensible 50mg, so this powdered energy drink will keep you awake without putting your health in danger.

Try out REIZE now and experience for yourself how effective it is at keeping you up and running.

Other Brands You Should Try

Final Say

There are two primary ingredients in energy drinks: sugar and caffeine, and although the latter might give you a rapid burst of energy, they can also drain your energy levels over time.

Despite the fact that energy drinks may aid enhance performance, the impact is just temporary. Sugar and caffeine, when combined, have the potential to cause you to overwork yourself.

To gain the same performance-enhancing advantages, undertake some exercise and consume a balanced diet.

Where to Buy Energy Drinks Online in Ireland (Best Deals) – REIZECLUB

The craze for energy drinks is still alive more than ever. A couple of decades ago, you may have trouble getting some brands that are produced abroad, but today, the world is your oyster.

And if you find yourself in Ireland, you won’t have to worry about getting your energy drink fix as you can order them online. You can even have the option of getting your orders delivered to your home.

In fact, this whole article is about honing your Irish luck when it comes to energy drinks! Mainly where to get them online, how to get them shipped, and what are the best energy drink brands available in Ireland.

Read on for more information!

What is the Most Popular Energy Drink in Ireland?

According to some studies in 2018, three brands dominated the Irish energy drink market. The top-selling energy drink brands include Red Bull, and Monster Energy, with Lucozade on the number one spot.

Other famous energy drinks in Ireland are Mountain Dew Energy, Club, BPM Energy, Boost, Relentless, 28 Black, and V. Majority of the best-selling brands are from three big companies—Red Bull Gmbh, Monster Beverage Corp., and Suntory Holdings Ltd.

Additionally, there are newer energy drink brands that are slowly becoming more widespread, like Zip Fizz and Rockstar.

Do People Buy Energy Drinks Online?

Yes, people buy energy drinks online even though they are not the best and quickest products to sell online. Truth is, energy drinks are even more difficult to market in e-commerce than other products.

Although that may be true, since the emergence of countless online selling platforms to provide convenience, consumers now opt to buy energy drinks from their preferred delivery or shopping apps.

Leading and even lesser-known brands of energy drinks can easily be ordered nowadays with just a few taps on your phone.

Packaging is probably one of the challenges that energy drink manufacturers face when selling energy drinks online. Energy drinks typically come in bulk packaging and are pretty heavy, they’re also fragile, considering aluminum cans are thin and malleable.

But despite these problems, the online energy drinks industry in Ireland is growing year by year.

Can Energy Drinks be Shipped?

It is indeed possible to have your energy drinks shipped. However, once carbonated drinks are shaken, the carbon at the top of the container can dissolve as gas bubbles and can be a little bit of a problem.

For that reason, once the shaken can is opened, large bubbles brewing will instantly rise and explode. With that in mind, despite the possibility of shipping your carbonated drinks, the procedures needed to be done to keep the drinks in the best condition are taxing.

Sending packages by shipping them means they will be tossed, moved, stacked, flown, and driven. On that note, your energy drinks will probably be shaken—a lot.

More importantly, it is a severe risk of a beverage exploding during a freight shipment. Hence, if you really need and want to ship them, it is advisable to create a double seal.

Additionally, it would be good to ship your carbonated beverages enclosed in a waterproof bag. Besides that, the packaging should be appropriately labeled and filled with packaging materials to secure the drinks.

Are you planning to drink only energy drinks? Don’t do it! Watch this video and treat it as a warning.

Is Monster Banned in Ireland?

Unfortunately for fans of the brand, four kinds of energy drinks were taken off the shelves in Ireland. The following include, The Ripper Juice Monster Energy + Juice, Lewis Hamilton Monster Energy, Espresso Monster Vanilla Espresso Triple Shot, and Espresso Monster Salted Caramel Triple Shot.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland announced the decision, blaming it on high levels of propylene glycol in energy drinks.

Moreover, the notice applies to all batches of the energy drinks and the best before dates of the beverages.

Also, when you think about it, the caffeine content in a 16-ounce can of Monster is about 160 milligrams, which isn’t too bad given the FDA recommends no more than 400mg of caffeine per day.

However, even if that’s the recommended amount of caffeine, you should still heed your body’s warnings.

Adding the fact that caffeine varies from person to person; for some, 50-100mg of caffeine is enough to provide an energy boost.

Best Energy Drinks in Ireland

Energy drinks come in different packages and feature different flavors. Additionally, some are even packed with health benefits.

With that said, each energy drink is indeed brewed and formulated differently. And here are the cream of the crop among the extensive variations of energy drinks in the market:

REIZE 0 g 50 g
Best Energy Drinks in Ireland

Zipfizz

What’s not to love about Zipfizz? Besides having fewer calories and being sugar-free, this also has healthy ingredients.

To name a few, grape seed extract, potassium, and chromium are all included. With that in mind, you know that you are not harming your body when you consume this energy drink.

What is more, in taking this energy drink, you have to mix each serving with 250ml of water before drinking it.

Lucozade Energy drink

Lucozade Energy is another well-known energy drink brand in Ireland, and each 380ml bottle includes 36mg of caffeine. That seems like an acceptable price for an energy drink of this size.

Mainly, Lucozade is a fantastic energy drink to carry on the go. However, this may not work many wonders as a pick-me-up or a pre-workout drink.

More importantly, this energy drink contains 34.6 grams of sugar, which aids in mental performance.

REIZE Energy Drink (11/10)

Although the other energy drink brands are excellent, I believe REIZE Energy is an off-the-charts energy drink that is readily available in Ireland.

This is because REIZE is a powdered energy drink that you can combine with any 250ml of your favorite liquid. In detail, this comes in 4g and is ideal for drinking any time, anywhere.

Besides that, this energy drink has a moderate amount of caffeine (50mg). Not just that, but this is sugar-free.

Likewise, this drink contains a masterful combination of taurine, ginseng, and B vitamins. This combination will undoubtedly provide you with a long-lasting energy boost.

Best of all, this only contains 11 calories. Hence, worry not about a sugar crash or whether your diet will be altered when you use REIZE to power up.

On top of that, your REIZE energy drinks will be delivered to your door for around $1 each. Indeed an incredible value for money!

Reward yourself with REIZE!

Do Sugar-Free Energy Drinks Cause Weight Gain? (Revealed) – REIZECLUB

Food and drinks high in sugar can promote weight gain, but through innovation and creating sugar-free products, this problem can be eliminated.

Since consumer needs evolve and the call for wellness-focused products continues to rise, sugar-free drinks are now a staple inclusion in every product aisle of every store. Next to multivitamins, energy drinks became an in-demand dietary supplement.

Read on and find out more about sugar-free energy drinks. This article might cross out some of the frequently asked questions on your list!

Are Sugar-Free Energy Drinks Good for You?

Sugar-free energy drinks are not particularly harmful to your health. However, they don’t exactly paint the picture of a “healthy” drink either.

According to two Curtin research studies, drinking too many energy drinks, even the sugar-free ones, can cause serious brain cell damage. Moreover, this can potentially increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

Hence, the FDA suggests that you restrict your daily caffeine consumption to 400 mg or less in order to avoid the following negative effects. With that in mind, worry not because you’ll be fine if you only consume energy drinks in moderation.

Are Sugar-Free Energy Drinks Actually Sugar-Free?

To put it simply, sugar-free energy drinks are beverages that have no white or brown sugar but their sweet taste is from the artificial sweeteners in their formulation.

more, Sugar-free energy drinks are believed to be the healthier option for those who want to lose weight or reduce their sugar intake. For instance, ASBs or “Artificially Sweetened Beverages” are frequently referred to as ‘diet’ versions of the drinks.

In most “sugar-free” energy drinks, sweeteners such as sucralose, aspartame, and acesulfame potassium (Ace-K) are present. On that note, we can’t conclude that all energy drinks claiming to be “sugar-free” are 100% free of sugar but still taste sweet with the help of artificial sweeteners.

Here’s a video that talks about sugar-free products objectively, you gotta check this out.

What Sugar-Free Energy Drinks Do to Your Body?

While sugar-free beverages indeed don’t contain added sugar, the artificial sweeteners in them can still lead to insulin production in your blood.

Artificial sweeteners are known to have unfavorable health consequences such as disruption of the gut flora, or in simple words, damage your stomach and its functioning.

Besides that, it may result in severe heart and blood vessel problems such as irregular heartbeats. Not to mention, in some serious cases, it can develop anxiety, abnormal blood pressure, and digestive issues too.

And although it gives your body the energy to keep you alert, awake, and going, it can damage your body because regular energy drinks (even the sugar-free ones) have chemical sweeteners and are low on nutritional properties.

Do Energy Drinks Make You Lose Weight?

Contrary to popular belief, energy drinks do not make a person lose weightbut it does help you achieve a big deficit in calories.

Unfortunately, the drink does not burn fats simply because it’s not a fat-burning drink. Is there any? On a side note, sugar-free drinks can even potentially make you gain weight if you drink too much of them.

In reality, if you do not tone down your energy drink consumption, you are only compromising your health. Additionally, there is no solid evidence that caffeine consumption leads to noticeable weight loss.

And since energy drinks are not exactly the miracle beverage for weight loss, gaining or losing weight can be summed up in a simple explanation. If you eat more calories than you burn, you will gain weight and vice versa. You’ll only lose weight if you’re in a state of calorie deficit.

Moreover, there is no instant way to lose weight, and excessive consumption of energy drinks is most definitely not the solution.

Feeling a little bit tired? Try a green apple. It works!

Do Sugar-Free Energy Drinks Cause Weight Gain?

Drinking two or more energy drinks per day possibly leads you to go above the advised calorie intake daily, leading to weight gain.

Drinking too many sugar-free beverages may subconsciously make you feel reassured to eat more, with the excuse that you are taking in a drink with fewer calories. But too much of small things can lead to big things.

Energy drinks are usually low in nutritional value and high in empty calories. For this reason, a lot of people tend to believe that skipping a meal or two and replacing it with an energy drink is a great way to lose weight. It’s not.

It is true that sugar-free energy drinks will not make you fat, but consuming them regularly without having a balanced diet or exercising can cause you to gain weight.

Best Sugar-free Energy Drinks

With all this new information in mind, you might go ballistic and think, how can you ever drink energy drinks again?

Fret not because you can still enjoy and drink some of them without harming your health–if you know how to choose the right products and only take them in moderation.

Energy Drink Sugar Calories Caffeine
Reign 0 g 10 cal 300 mg
Zipfizz 0 g 20 cal 100 mg

Best Sugar-Free Energy Drinks

Reign

For those looking for a pre-workout energy drink, Reign contains ideally everything you would want in a pre-workout drink. Reign contains a good dose of BCAAs, B vitamins, and a hefty dose of caffeine. Because Reign is sugar-free, you won’t have to worry about crashing!

Moreover, no sugar means you don’t have to do some calculations before drinking Reign, because it provides fewer calories for your exercise.

However, you should still keep an eye on your total diet and attempt to keep your sugar consumption to a minimum even if Reign does not have a significant influence on it.

Zipfizz

Another noteworthy to mention is Zipfizz. In a tube, Zipfizz is a powdered energy drink that you blend with water to create your drink.

Zipfizz has just 20 calories and 100 milligrams of caffeine per serving. Not to mention, Zipfizz boldly promises to be sugar-free, although the recipe is sweetened with Xylitol and Sucralose.

All in all, Zipfizz is fair in claiming that it won’t add much weight to your body since it has just 20 calories.

Check out my review article about Zipfizz to see for yourself.

REIZE (Must-Try)

While sugar-free energy drinks can be good for you, they aren’t always the most cost-effective option. So, why not give a sugar-free, low-calorie, and cost-effective energy drink a try?

I can attest to the fact that REIZE will save you a lot of money while also providing you with the energy you need to go through the day without experiencing a sugar or caffeine slump.

Because it’s sugar-free, REIZE Energy Drink is a particular favorite of mine, in addition to having an appropriate 50mg caffeine dose.

Final Say

It is not a crime to enjoy energy drinks. The flavors and the energy boost they provide will indeed be found helpful from time to time.

However, it is essential to remember that you might regret consequences such as long-term effects if you are not conscious of your energy drink consumption.

Resist the temptation of sugar-free energy drinks that are high in artificial sweeteners. Instead, opt for clean, plant-based energy drinks.

Along with the concept of caffeine withdrawal and switching to actual healthier options, it would definitely take time before you come to terms with accepting that sugar-free energy drinks are not as harmless and healthy as you once thought.

Still, with time, practice, and determination in protecting your wellness, I believe you can do it!

Best Non-Carbonated Energy Drinks (No Fizz) – REIZECLUB

Many of the popular energy drinks in the market today are carbonated, but energy drink manufacturers know that it’s not for everyone. That’s why there are plenty of fantastic no-fizz options out there.

The carbonation in energy drinks makes the caffeine effects feel stronger; However, it also comes with a downside—high sugar content. That’s why if you’re trying to cut down on your sugar intake you must go for a non-carbonated option.

Finding out which non-carbonated option is the most effective is not an easy task. With that, here are some of the most excellent non-carbonated energy drinks currently on the market.

Let’s dive in!

What is the difference between Carbonated and Non-Carbonated Drinks?

The main difference between the two is of course the carbonation, but aside from that, non-carbonated drinks are often less sweet than carbonated drinks since they don’t include sugar or artificial sweeteners.

The inclusion of carbon dioxide gives the carbonated beverages their fizz and effervescent sensation. In other terms, carbon dioxide molecules are volatile, which means they may be dissolved in water to generate carbonic acid, a poisonous acidic solution.

With this in mind, this procedure works at a pace that prevents the bubbles from escaping, resulting in a drink that tickles your tongue and brings you a delightful effervescent sensation.

On the other hand, non-carbonated beverages are those that do not contain carbon dioxide or have a fizzy flavor. The carbonation process is not used in non-carbonated drinks; therefore, they lack that distinct zing.

Check out this video to find out more about carbonated and non-carbonated drinks.

Why Are Most Energy Drinks Carbonated?

Energy drinks are often touted as an extra kick that enhances physical and mental performance. And as caffeine is readily absorbed through the stomach, carbonation makes it even easier to enter the system.

The cold temperature of energy drinks acts as a fast jolt to the body, causing it to become more alert. Your nervous system is further stimulated by the addition of carbon dioxide.

With each sip, you’ll feel a tingling, refreshing feeling that’s both fresh and invigorating. Hence, the reason why many of today’s most popular energy drinks benefit from the addition of this taste.

Which Drinks are Not Carbonated?

Are you sick and weary of carbonated drinks? The following is a list of the healthiest non-carbonated drinks you can opt for while at the same time keeping your body well-hydrated.

  • Tea
  • Ice tea
  • bottled water
  • vitamin water
  • lemonade
  • Coffee
  • Orange juice
  • Sports drinks

Non-carbonated drinks taste more natural and chemical-free, giving customers the impression that they are nutritious and devoid of artificial flavors.

Is There a Non-Carbonated Red Bull?

Krating DaengThailand’s original Red Bull, is a concentrated, non-carbonated variant, in contrast to the classic Red Bull.

Red Bull comes in various flavors and sizes. However, Krating Daeng only offers the standard and sugar-free varieties in 100ml and 250ml bottles. Also, due to its lower caffeine content, Krating Daeng is much lighter than Red Bull or for most of the mainstream energy drink brands.

Indeed, it’s good that Krating Daeng has a unique and refreshing taste. Still, this beverage’s sugar and calorie content are too high to ignore, so consume at your own risk.

Are Monster Drinks Carbonated?

Yes! It also contains a variety of substances that give Monster energy drinks their energy-boosting properties, including caffeine and carbonation.

However, they have come up with an alternative to both energy drinks and water with their Hydro drink. Basically, Monster Hydro is all about a non-carbonated, gently sweetened beverage that uses all-natural flavors.

It’s a perfectly natural alternative to carbonated drinks, and it provides an energy boost in the process. With components like caffeine, taurine, and erythritol in their Monster Hydro formula, you may enjoy a beverage that is both useful and safe.

Tropic Thunder and Purple Passion, Blue Ice, Mean Green, and Manic Melon are just some of the flavors available.

List of Keto-Friendly Energy Drinks (Certified Keto) – REIZECLUB

Almost all energy drinks will cause you to break ketosis if you drink them; luckily, not all of them will.

You might find it hard to adopt a ketogenic diet if you like beverages that contain a lot of added sugar like sodas, juices, flavored coffees, and even energy drinks because they include more calories and carbohydrates than you’d ever expect.

But don’t worry, in this article, I will be giving you some advice and a list of my favorite keto-friendly energy drinks.

How Does a Keto Diet Work?

To be precise, for you to have a proper ketogenic diet, You should include roughly 75% fat, 10%-30% protein, and no more than 5% or 20-50 grams of carbohydrates in your diet per day.

When you’re in ketosis, your body turns into a state where it gets better at turning fat into energy. Therefore, when you begin to adopt this kind of diet by cutting most of your carbohydrate intake, you quickly lose fats in the process.

This is the main reason why you will find so many people jumping on the keto diet bandwagon. Losing weight and maintaining a healthy body fat percentage is easier with this method.

Which Monster Drink is Keto-Friendly?

Considering its net carb count of 4 per 16 ounces serving, the Monster Zero Ultra is the “keto-friendly” beverage among its line of energy drinks. However, it is not as keto-friendly as other sugar-free drinks.

This is because the artificial sweeteners acesulfame potassium and sucralose are still used to sweeten it. While artificial sweeteners don’t affect blood sugar levels, they’re usually avoided by those on a strict keto diet since they might interfere with the body’s ability to enter ketosis.

Still, if you’re not strictly following a ketogenic diet, Monster Zero Ultra may be an acceptable option to help you feel more energized.

In detail, here’s a brief overview of what’s inside a can of Monster Zero Ultra.

Nutrients Amount
calories 10 kcal
Fat 0 grams
Protein 0 grams
Total Carbs 6 grams
Erythritol 2 grams
Net Carbs 4 grams
Monster Zero Ultra Nutrient Summary

Is Red Bull Zero Keto-Friendly?

Fortunately, Red Bull now has a keto-friendly energy drink in their lineup, which is the Red Bull Zero. This iconic energy drink now offers a sugar-free variant with zero calories.

Indeed, Red Bull Total Zero is keto-friendly from top to bottom. It employs aspartame and sucralose instead of ordinary sugar as sweeteners.

Not to mention, it contains 80mg of caffeine per 8.4 fl. oz can, which is a pretty low amount. So, if you’re sensitive to caffeine, Red Bull is an excellent choice.

Can Energy Drinks Kick you out of Ketosis?

You can drink energy beverages while on a ketogenic diet, but it’s vital to read the labels carefully because most of them can kick you out of ketosis without you knowing it.

In order to keep your calorie count down, you’ll need to choose an energy drink with less sugar, which will minimize the carb count.

Drinks might deceive you into thinking that you are not breaking your diet because you are not eating, but the truth is you still consume calories and sugar. Sugar content in beverages such as fruit juices, sodas, and even your favorite energy drink may lead to weight gain and make it more challenging to achieve ketosis.

I know for a fact how challenging to distinguish between keto-friendly beverages and those that are only designed to cash in on the current market fads thanks to the proliferation of buzzwords like “low-carb,” “low-sugar,” “organic, ” and others.

As a result, it’s advisable to do extensive research before downing an energy drink. Also, in addition to searching for a low-sugar choice, it’s a good idea to acquaint yourself with the many kinds of sugar substitutes, since not all of them are keto-friendly.

List of Keto-Friendly Energy Drinks

As for the most awaited part, if you are on a ketogenic diet, you may want to look into some of these keto-friendly energy drinks.

Zipfizz

Zipfizz is a sugar-free and low-calorie energy drink that’s perfect for those following a ketogenic regimen.

To be more specific, each tube of Zipfizz has 100 milligrams of caffeine and 20 calories in it. As a result, Zipfizz is one of the few natural and healthy beverage brands now available on the market.

Compared to other energy drinks found in grocery and convenience stores, this one has far less caffeine and calories. Indeed, Zipfizz’s main selling point is that it’s keto-friendly, making it a viable option for anybody on a ketogenic diet looking for an energy drink mix.

Bang

Those following a ketogenic diet should have no problem drinking Bang energy drinks. No need to worry about getting booted out of ketosis after devouring a can of Bang.

However, keep in mind that Bang energy drinks, for example, have high caffeine content, so it’s important to know that before consuming one. Especially with the caffeine in beverages like these, it is difficult to resist them since they are so accessible and easy to consume.

While Bang isn’t completely caffeine-free, it does have other advantages. However, it is crucial to keep in mind the recommended daily consumption of caffeine and other stimulants in order to prevent any negative consequences.

REIZE (10/10)

It’s hard to beat REIZE when it comes to high-quality keto-friendly energy drinks.

REIZE, for instance, is a one-of-a-kind powdered energy drink that is very convenient to consume. Therefore, I choose REIZE above any other beverage available since the packets are handier and lighter to transport than those big, bulky cans.

That’s not all: REIZE contains 50 mg of caffeine in each serving. Not to mention, a significant energy boost that won’t give you the jitters is provided by a combination of taurine, ginseng, and the B group vitamins.

In terms of quality and efficacy, you may find that REIZE beats out the competition right away. You can get it for only around $1 and you can even have your orders shipped straight to your door.

You may click this link to order REIZE now so you can enjoy an amazing, keto-friendly energy drink!

Other Certified Keto-Friendly Energy Drinks:

Alternative Drinks

Zero-calorie drinks should be your mainstay instead of sugary energy drinks, including water, coffee, tea, and sparkling water.

The following is a brief summary of the several keto-friendly beverage alternatives available to you:

While it’s clearly evident that staying hydrated is essential at all times, figuring out which beverages are keto-friendly may be a challenge.

However, you should keep in mind that a ketogenic diet necessitates a minimal carbohydrate intake, so to get the most out of your carbohydrate intake, go for items like fresh juices rather than sugary beverages.

Verdict

Ultimately, you should always check the label and nutrition facts of the food and drinks you consume when you’re following a ketogenic diet. As a rule of thumb, if you’re really strict about your diet, you should cap your carbohydrate intake to 20 grams per day.

You can always search the internet for the carbohydrates content of your home-cooked meals. Also, you need lots of water to hydrate your body while on a keto diet, especially if you’re accompanying your diet with exercise.

While I agree that most energy drinks contain more sugar than soda, I also believe that there are numerous low-carb and zero-carb options out there. I may not be able to include them in the list, but feel free to explore and research them.

Keep in mind, though, that just because a drink is labeled “low-carb” doesn’t guarantee that it will fit within your daily carb allowance. Hence, when buying energy drinks, be sure to read the labels thoroughly.

For my money, REIZE is the best choice.

    Best Energy Drinks for Performance (Good to Know) – REIZECLUB

    If you’re looking for the best energy drinks that can improve your physical and mental performance, you’re on the right page. I suppose you’re a well-active individual or an athlete who wants to push the limits.

    Energy drinks can help you with any type of sports or activity, whether swimming, biking, jogging, or even studying. Therefore, you can say that these are great performance-boosting beverages.

    If you’re one of these, you’ll need to know what to look for in energy drinks. So I’ve compiled a list of my top recommendations that are guaranteed to improve your performance!

    Let’s start.

    What Drinks Give You The Most Energy?

    Aside from energy drinks, let me share with you other beverages that you can also use for your performance. Since energy drinks are not healthy and don’t need to be approved by the FDA, here are some options you should try:

    • Water
    • Coffee
    • Green Tea
    • Yerba Mate
    • Fruit Shakes
    • Vegetable Shakes

    Do Energy Drinks Boost Performance?

    Yes, there’s no doubt about it because energy drinks’ main component is a potent stimulant that is also present in coffee, yerba mate, and green tea. Don’t you know that even a tiny dose of caffeine can improve physical performance and cognition?

    Moreover, this study has proven that beverages induced with caffeine can increase speed during sports. Aside from that, energy drinks are also known to help you with weight loss and improve long-term memory.

    Energy drinks of different brands
    Energy drinks can help you run better.

    Another study in 2012 proved that Red Bull can help you significantly enhance your upper body muscle. For your information, Red Bull has 80mg of caffeine.

    There are also other studies that claim energy drinks can improve your cognitive performance and help you stay focused till the finish line.

    When Should You Drink Energy Drinks?

    It’s best to drink energy drinks before your workouts.

    Aside from a proper meal, timing is important too. According to this article, energy drinks start working around 30 minutes after consuming them. If you drink it now and jog right after, you won’t feel any boosting effects.

    Therefore, instead of jumping straight from another energy drink because your “current one” didn’t work, why not make this a practice instead? Moreover, it would be best if you don’t consume energy drinks after an exercise.

    However, this article claims that energy drinks with caffeine are beneficial before or after an exercise. This isn’t a good idea, except if an energy drink has a replenishing property.

    Ingredients That Are Good for Performers

    Let’s look at some of the contents that make energy drinks reliable during performances. Here’s a quick table for you:

    Ingredients Functions
    Taurine This amino sulfonic acid has a good effect on your brain and heart. Aside from that, it can also lower your blood pressure and calm your nervous system.
    L-Citrulline This non-essential amino acid can improve your blood flow by boosting nitric oxide production.
    Tyrosine It’s an amino acid that helps Your body produce proteins.
    L-Theanine This is an amino acid too. It can improve mental alertness and boost the immune system like taurine.
    Gingko Biloba It improves blood flow in small vessels.
    Vitamin E This vitamin is suitable for your sight, skin, and brain.
    Vitamin B These vitamins directly impact your energy levels, brain function, and cell metabolism. This is probably the reason why a lot of energy drinks include this vitamin.
    Vitamin C This vitamin will help protect your cells against the effects of free radicals.
    Ginseng Ginseng can boost energy and regulate blood sugar.
    Guarana Guarana has a good effect on your central nervous system, heart, and muscles.
    Common Ingredients of Energy Drinks

    Aside from the said elements, it would help to look for electrolytes in an energy drink. Regardless it comes in the form of magnesium, sodium, or potassium. Electrolytes are beneficial in keeping your body fluids in balance.

    In this way, you won’t feel dehydrated after your event. As I’ve mentioned, you can also take energy drinks with electrolytes after your workout. Because it can help your muscles recover.

    Side Effects of Drinking Too Much Energy Drink

    There are two elements present in most energy drinks. And that’s caffeine and sugar. Here are some problems you’ll have with it if you happen to take more than what’s recommended:

    Caffeine Content

    While caffeine is indeed beneficial if you’re looking for a lift, there’s only a limit to how much you can take. As per the FDA, you can take up to 400mg of caffeine every day.

    Going above that dosage can result in caffeine overdose. Some of its symptoms are as follows:

    • Dizziness
    • Insomnia
    • Anxiety
    • Abnormal heart rate
    • Dehydration
    • Headaches
    • Restlessness and shakiness
    • Stomach problems

    I suggest you follow the recommendation seriously, especially if you’re not drinking caffeinated products regularly.

    Why do you want to drink energy drinks?

    Sugar Content

    If caffeine can motivate you to keep going, you can get energy from sugar. Most energy drinks use natural sugar, while others use artificial sweeteners.

    Sugar intake is only safe at 30mg per day. If you take more than this amount, it can lead to sugar crashes. And that can affect your performance negatively because instead of feeling energized, you’ll feel tired and sleepy.

    On the other hand, I see no problem with artificial sweeteners because they’re FDA-approved. According to this article, artificial sweeteners have no calories, making them suitable for your diet.

    Just be careful, though. Despite being safe, you cannot let yourself excessively consume any products with artificial sweeteners.

    According to this study, this can result in obesity or even diabetes. There’s also a high chance of tooth decay.

    Best Energy Drinks for Performance

    Aside from Red Bull, which has been used in many studies to prove energy drinks’ usability, there are other energy drinks. I’ll discuss some of those energy drinks including my favorite one in the next sections.

    G Fuel Energy

    G Fuel powder is packed with 150mg of caffeine and zero sugar. It uses sucralose to keep its taste sweet. It’s also packed with Taurine, l-tyrosine, and vitamins B3, B6, and B12.

    If you’re more of a person that prefers to drink after a workout, this could work for you. Just make sure to take only one serving per day to avoid caffeine overdose.

    In addition, there’s also a canned version of G Fuel that you can try if you’re not into mixing powders.

    C4 Energy

    C4 energy drink is a well-known pre-workout energy drink because it’s available in four versions. Each version has a different caffeine amount. Some have 120mg, while the original has 300mg of caffeine.

    It gives you the freedom to base your choice on how much energy you need. I suggest you go with the lowest dose of caffeine. After all, they all contain lots of B vitamins and amino acids that can help you perform better physically.

    Rockstar

    You can also get a Rockstar energy drink containing 160mg of caffeine, and 24g of sugar. This energy drink is packed with guarana, ginseng, and B Vitamins!

    There’s no doubt that a single can of Rockstar will give you the big boost you’re looking for. However, while 160mg of caffeine is still a moderate amount, it’s a bit higher than what I normally consider.

    For your safety, keep track of how many Rockstar you already had, and make sure not to mix it with other caffeinated products. Otherwise, it may lead to an adverse reaction, which won’t be suitable for your performance.

    If you like mixing energy drinks, I think you should try the powdered ones instead.

    REIZE (The Best)

    Speaking of powder, it reminded me of my favorite beverage that you can easily mix anywhere. REIZE comes in a 4g sachet with only 50mg of caffeine. If you like to drink a lot, I think you’ll have no problem mixing a second serving with its low amount of caffeine.

    Reize Energy Drink
    REIZE Energy Drink

    I prefer energy drinks with only 50-100mg of caffeine. But more than that, what I adore about REIZE is its B vitamins, taurine, and ginseng that can boost my performance.

    REIZE is also sugar-free and has only 11 calories, ensuring that no matter what your diet or lifestyle is, REIZE is a perfect match for you.

    You can get REIZE for only around $1 and you can even have your orders shipped straight to your door. That’s amazing value for your money.

    The Bottom Line

    Generally, all energy drinks can help you boost your body performance. However, it all depends on your sensitivity and your body’s reaction.

    That said, you might not feel the boosting effects in the case of some energy drinks. On the other hand, a few ones might feel too much for you.

    Energy drinks are only for individuals who practice an active lifestyle. Yet, despite the many advantages they offer, you shouldn’t replace your meals with them.

    Also, only take an energy drink with the nutrients and the caffeine your body needs.

    On a final note, I suggest you start first with an energy drink that’s low on caffeine. And just decide after if you want to switch to another one or not!
