Who do you know who drinks energy drinks? The energy drink market is worth an estimated $61 billion a year according to AIM Market Insight, and it is growing at an estimated 5.8% each year!
Why are energy drinks so popular? Whether it is Red Bull, Rockstar Energy, CocaCola, or Pepsi Cola that you reach for – chances are that you’re one of the 30 to 50% of people (according to the March 2011 issue of Pediatrics) who consume energy drinks as a “pick me up” once in a while.
The increase in popularity of energy drinks has recently led to increased consumer awareness of possible health effects of the drinks which are often laden with sugar from sugar beet, and caffeine which presumably is a synthetically manufactured chemical additive.
Concerns around Red Bull, Monster, and Rockstar
There is a recommended daily safe amount of caffeine from any source, and it equates to roughly six cans a day, although the lethal dose would be much higher at around 150 cans a day. It is highly unlikely that anyone could consume that many energy drinks in one day! (source: Caffeine Informer).
The major health concern about energy drinks is the level of sugar and the type of sugar being used. Most of the top manufacturers use sugar derived from sugar beet (sucrose). A 500ml can of Rockstar Juiced Energy+ has as much as 20 teaspoons of sugar in each 500ml can (source: Daily Mail).
The recommended daily maximum amount of added sugar in your diet is 9 teaspoons a day for men, or 6 teaspoons a day for sugar. The is no recommended minimum sugar intake per day because most people are already consuming too much sugar, and a healthy balanced diet will include enough energy without adding additional sugar in the form of sucrose.
Introducing NEON by Visalus!
NEON Energy drink is a new healthier energy drink that appeals to people who want to increase performance at the gym or in their sport, or who wish to combat daytime sleepiness without the artificially produced caffeine stimulant or excess sucrose levels found in most other energy drinks.
Instead of containing chemical caffeine, NEON energy drink contains green tea extract which delivers the equivalent of 80mg caffeine in each 8.46 fl oz can.
Also, instead of the usual sucrose for the sweetness and energy, NEON energy drink contains crystalline fructose which is natural fruit sugar, in addition to 24% fruit juice which adds up to just 100 kcal per serving – less than Red Bull, Monster, and RockStar energy drinks.
This lower calorie count makes Vi NEON more suitable for people who are on a weight loss or weight maintenance program, as well as anyone watching their calorie intake.
A unique thing about NEON is that it contains Quinine (an extract of cinchona bark, used as a tonic and formerly as an antimalarial drug) – not for the anti-malaria qualities, but to make the drink glow under UV light.
This unique glowing quality is making NEON a very popular drink in bars and nightclubs throughout the USA and Canada – and now the rest of the world!
In fact, enterprising individuals are creating many different NEON energy drink recipes including alcoholic cocktails. Try it 50/50 with champagne for starters. Glowing champagne will definitely turn heads in the nightclub!
