There are so many “energy” drinks on the market today that I’ve become curious about the underpinnings of these beverages in recent months. While I personally do not drink these products, the fact that many of them have “natural” and “energy” in their advertising naturally made me curious.
My curiosity was stoked a little when I started reading the ingredients to many of these products. There are some very unhealthy components to many of these product, starting with ultra-doses of sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, caffeine and other things that make some of these products look like re-packaged and re-flavored soft drinks in many respects.
I know the soft drink industry is a master at selling the same thing in different colors and in different flavors, and most of these mass energy drinks are just that in my opinion. Buyer and drinker beware — *always* check the label and research the ingredients. Energy might just be packaged in a sugar and carbohydrate spike.
