Energy Drinks… How Do They Work? What’s the Hype?

Keeping your energy up throughout the week is tough. Whether you complete 6am dog walks or smash your home workouts, you may find yourself searching for the perfect boost. So, why do you find yourself overlooking energy drinks? If it’s because they’re not the ‘healthier’ option, then stop right now!

You have been searching in all the wrong places. Grenade Energy® doesn’t rely on something as basic as sugar to give you a boost, like most other energy drinks on the market. Instead, we use a number of natural and functional energy-boosting ingredients. Want to know more? Check them out below and find out why our new Cherry Bomb is so explosive when it comes to energy!

Taurine & Amino Acids

Taurine is an amino acid that can be found naturally in many foods, including meat, fish, and dairy products. It can be found in key areas such as the brain, eyes and heart. Studies into the effects of taurine have shown a few key benefits: • Reduces fatigue • Helps to reduce muscle damage during exercise • Removes waste products that cause muscle burn • Protects cells from damage. Taurine gets its name from the Latin taurus, which, you guessed it, means bull. This has resulted in a few too many people assuming this acid comes from bulls in some way. Fear not vegetarian Life Athletes, you can sip on Berried Alive knowing it is 100% bull free. In more ways than one!

Natural Caffeine

When it comes to caffeine, the idea of natural caffeine vs. artificial may never even spring to mind. Now, don’t panic just yet. Coffee, tea and yes, thankfully, chocolate are all sources where natural caffeine will likely be used. However, artificial caffeine is made for a wide variety of products and it is synthesised from theobromine (a compound found in cocoa beans). And where do they use this artificial caffeine? Well, you’d be surprised! Shampoo (don’t ask us why!), foods, supplements and some pain relief medications are all everyday examples. And, you guessed it, a lot of energy drinks! However, our energy drinks contain only natural caffeine — 155mg per 330ml can to be exact! So, you can drink with peace of mind and rest assured that your caffeine is straight from the source, not a lab!

Vitamins

One ingredient you may find a complete surprise when it comes to Grenade Energy… vitamins! No, really!

We pack a punch in the average can of Sun of a Beach, it contains:

  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin B12
  • Magnesium
  • Biotin
  • And more!

The key reason we include vitamins is so that you don’t just get an energy boost, your body gets what it needs to help boost recovery too. After a long day smashing your sweaty sesh, it’s what it (you and your body!) deserves after all. Vitamins can also help deliver caffeine to your system in a steady manner. Giving you that longer sustained energy to help you ‘Get Shit Done’! How about it; is the jury still out on Energy drinks? No? We thought not! Case closed, get yourself some Grenade Energy to celebrate. With three new flavours… well, it would be rude not to really.
