Energy drinks, as the name implies, refers to energy-boosting drinks that energize and refresh you. So can guzzling a can of energy drink suddenly cause you to have superhuman strength? Well, energy drinks contain mainly sugar, caffeine, and other ingredients which are believed to increase the stamina and provide you energy. However, it is important to note that unlike sports drinks which contain water and electrolytes, energy drinks have a "crash-and-burn" effect, with the diuretic effect of coffee leaving the body dehydrated.
It is surprising but energy drinks actually originated in Japan when a pharmaceutical company, Taisho, released its Lipovitan D drink in 1962 which was designed to help employees work hard well into the night. In America, the first energy drink was Jolt Cola which was manufactured in 1980s. Since then, the list of energy drinks has grown tremendously with new energy drink ingredients such as ephedrine, taurine, ginseng, guarana seeds, amino acids, B vitamins, and ginkgo biloba. Here is an energy drink list along with the reviews of some popular brands.
