Healthy Drink Recipes for an Energy Boost

If you work a regular job or maybe you’re just a caffeine addict like the rest of us, then you understand the need for energy drinks. Myself personally I always worry about what is actually inside of the drink. I hear so much about how it is bad for me or going to make my heart speed up too fast to the point where I become paranoid and just end up drinking coffee or tea, but sometimes those aren’t quite enough to keep my eyes open. This is when I began to look into different organic options with no sugars or at least a lower sugar count.

In-Depth With The Top 5

Sound Sparkling Organic Yerba Mate with Citrus and Hibiscus is a naturally sweet drink with the use of botanical extracts that although not technically classified as a energy drink, contains at least 70mg from green tea, yerba mate (“mate or maté also known as chimarrão or cimarrón, is a traditional South American caffeine-rich infused drink. It is made by soaking dried leaves of the yerba mate plant in hot water and is served with a metal straw in a container typically made from calabash gourd”), and white tea.

The MatchaBar Hustle is slightly different in its approach as it is a powered green tea packet that is filled with antioxidants. Matcha itself is proven to aid in the protection against chronic diseases and various cancers.

Now the Vital Proteins Collagen Energy Shots, are a concentrated dose of caffeine which is extracted from the coffee fruit. As the name suggests, they are high in collagen, B vitamins, and also hyaluronic acid, which is a dietary supplement known for treatment of wounds or ulcers let alone a pain killer for arthritis when injected.

With the Mati Unsweetened Sparkling Organic Energy Drink (Unsweetened), has been known by the name of runa tea as it has leaves that come from an evergreen tree found to of been growing in various rainforests such as the Amazon. It has for centuries been consumed by the indigenous Amazonian people and became well known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to not only produce caffeine but also healing aid.

To complete our top 5, we have the Toro Matcha Sparkling Ginger which if you’re a lemon lover, like me, this will be right up your alley as this drink is packed with those natural flavors. It actually reminds me more like caffeinated tea, especially since compared to its friends listed above, it contains a much lesser amount of caffeine – even less than one cup of coffee!

Another great alternative, that is very natural and in my opinion, more safe for your body, is SunWarrior, who’s site says:
