Energy drinks have become increasingly popular over the past few years. These beverages are designed to give consumers a boost of energy throughout the day. Energy drinks are often marketed towards college students who need a quick pick-me-up before exams or work. However, these drinks are not just for students. Many people use them to help them stay awake while studying or working long hours at their jobs.
The following are some of the best energy drinks on the market today.
Monster Energy Drink
This drink was created by Monster Beverage Corporation. Monster Energy Drink contains 5% caffeine and 55 mg of taurine per 8 oz serving. Taurine is a natural amino acid that helps maintain muscle function and improve athletic performance. Caffeine gives users a jolt of energy without causing any side effects.
Red Bull is a high-caffeine energy drink produced by Austrian company Red Bull GmbH. The drink contains approximately 80 mg of caffeine per 8 oz serving. Red Bull is known for its aggressive marketing tactics. In fact, the company once ran a contest where they gave away free cans of the product if you could get a picture of yourself drinking a Red Bull can.
Rockstar Energy Drink
Rockstar Energy Drink is produced by Canadian beverage company Molson Coors Brewing Company. Rockstar contains about 100 mg of caffeine per 8oz serving. Rockstar is known for its bright red color and sweet taste.
Powerade is a sports drink produced by Coca-Cola. Powerade contains about 90 mg of caffeine per 8 ounce serving. Powerade is a great alternative to coffee since it provides similar amounts of caffeine without the bitter aftertaste.
