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

Keeping your energy up throughout the week is tough. Whether you drag yourself through those 6 am 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 several 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 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 vs. artificial caffeine may never even spring to mind. Now, don’t panic just yet. Coffee, tea and 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, foods, supplements and some pain relief medications are all everyday examples. And, you guessed it, a lot of energy drinks! That said, our functional Grenade Energy drink contains 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!


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!

By including vitamins, you get an energy boost, AND your body gets what it needs to help it recover after a gruelling workout! Vitamins can also help steadily deliver caffeine to your system, giving you that longer sustained energy to help fuel your day.

How about it? Is the jury still out on energy drinks? No? Get yourself some Grenade Energy to celebrate! Plus, with three explosive flavours... it would be rude not to.
