Could you use a little extra pep in your step? While not all products are created equally, with the right one, you could get an extra boost of energy, improved concentration, enhanced physical performance, and more. Thinking about trying an energy drink? Here’s the low down on this popular drink.
A Short History of Energy Drinks
Energy drinks are popular beverages that usually include caffeine and possibly other dietary supplements. According to the National Library of Medicine, in 1949, Dr. Enuf was the first energy drink to be introduced to the American market. More than a decade later, Lipovitan D debuted in Japan. Marketed as an energizing tonic which features taurine as its main ingredient; it is still on the market today. In 1987, energy drinks hit the European market and have continued to expand.
The surge in energy drinks’ popularity has often been credited to Red Bull, which hit the Austria market in 1987. Almost a decade later it was introduced to the US market and followed by other big-name brands like Rockstar and Monster Energy in the early 2000s. By 2012 it was estimated that energy drinks in America made up 12.5 billion dollars. Furthermore, by 2013, the annual consumption of energy drinks in about 160 countries had exceeded 5.8 billion liters!
Not All Energy Drinks are the Same
Today, energy drinks are a multi-billion dollar industry, and they are consumed by millions of people around the world. However, they have also faced criticism over their high sugar and caffeine content. Not to mention jittery side effects that can end in an energy crash. Additionally, concerns have been raised about their potential health risks, particularly when consumed in large quantities or by young people.
