Energy drinks, by definition, are beverages that are designed to give a burst of energy by using a combination of methylxanthines (caffeine), B vitamins, and exotic herbal ingredients. Energy drinks commonly include caffeine, guarana (extracts from the guarana plant), taurine, various forms of ginseng, maltodextrin, inositol, carnitine, creatine, glucuronolactone and ginkgo biloba. Some contain high levels of sugar, while most brands also offer an artificially sweetened version. The main active ingredient in energy drinks is usually caffeine, the stimulant found in coffee or tea, often in the form of guarana or yerba mate. The average 8-ounce energy drink has about 80mg of caffeine, about the same amount as a weak cup of coffee. Larger drinks (16 oz drinks) contain about 150mg of caffeine. Some drinks have created a controversy by containing about 300mg of caffeine in about 8 ounces.

There are also warnings about mixing the energy drinks with alcohol or drinking too much of the stimulants. There should always be a concern about deadly arrhythmias, excessive nervousness or human performance issues (e.g., driving, safe machine operation, sports, etc.) when any stimulant is abused. Beware of (that is, avoid) using Energy Drinks when the physiological state of the body is NOT normal, such as during fasting, extreme exertion, heat stress, recent or current illness, fever, excess alcohol intake or prolonged lack of rest or lack of sleep.

For best long-term human performance results, find a balanced diet and consider balanced and properly -timed meals with protein and carbohydrate supplement blends that work best for you. Protein and carbohydrate supplements can also keep you alert without the risk of overstimulating.
