When there are not enough hours in the day, usually ‘getting enough sleep” falls lower and lower on the to-do list.
Dragging through the day low on energy is not an option. You need a boost.
The wonders of caffeine are widely known. The benefits are proven to work for what you need. So much so that we’ll put our bodies through questionable measures to get it.
How questionable, you ask? A cup of coffee is pretty straightforward so that doesn’t apply here. (&, perhaps, it’s not for everyone.)… The next alternative that comes to mind are energy drinks.
Reading the ingredient list on the side of an energy drink can is usually enough to fill the ‘questionable content’ meter. They’re filled with things that are hard to pronounce.
These handy carbonated beverages will wake you up… but the health conscious among us are likely to take a pause before bringing the concoctions into their bodies.
However, whether or not your health conscious doesn’t really make a difference if you only got 4 hours of sleep last night and now have a full day ahead of you.
However, there’s no need to stress! There are energy drinks available on the market that have a low sugar content, vitamins and minerals, and no artificial flavors or colors.
SUNSHINE Good Energy
I had the pleasure to try these drinks and it was a refreshing experience!
Some flavors were more tasty than others (more on that below), however I can confidently say that I’d choose any of them over a Red Bull. Not just because of the ingredients but because the boost of energy they gave me was like a smooth wave without the crash.
Note: SUNSHINE Good Energy drinks do not call themselves healthy – that’s me. However, I use that word because these drinks have a good does of a variety of vitamins – calcium, niacin, B6, B12, and magnesium.
Clementine Twist is the healthiest, with the added addition of vitamin E, vitamin A and 200% vitamin C!
So, how do they taste?
Flavor wise, my favorite is Blueberry Lemonade. It tastes exactly as it sounds! It’s like a healthy soda.
Clementine Twist is the second tastiest. I suspect it would be even better with a splash of actual orange juice.
Ginger Berry comes in last. Perhaps I had unrealistic expectations – I assumed something with ginger will have a KICK. But there is no kick here.
One more thing, SUNSHINE Energy Drinks also get a few more cool points for being created in Winston-Salem, North Carolina!
So yes, in conclusion, these drinks are highly recommended – from one caffeine fan to another!
As an honorable mention to healthy energy drinks, Bing energy drinks are also quite effective.
They have 5% juice, the vitamin content is solid and the low sugar content is a plus! Caffeine and Ginseng is proving to be a winning combination on the energy side of things! I’ve only had one flavor so far but I see myself reaching for another one sometime in the future.
Thanks for reading!
