Power Drinks


Red Bull, Jolt, AMP, 6 Hour Power, Hype, etc. There are over 100 of these so called energy drinks or power boosters on the market. The thing that most of them have in common is that the source of power is mainly from the combination of sugar and caffeine. I personally don't use them, but like anything else, I believe that moderation is the key. I certainly wouldn't recommend them on a daily basis. While these drinks may offer a quick fix they can also have side effects such as crashing or other long term health issues. Also, if you need a boost of energy on a regular basis you should probably check other areas of your health such as your diet, amount of exercise, or sleep habits to find out why your energy is so low. Although I haven't heard of any addiction to these drinks, I'm sure like anything else, it can be habit forming. After all, caffeine is a stimulant (drug). So what do you think about energy drinks? Is it real? or just real hype?
