Energy drink PS regular drinks

*Energy drinks contain functional ingredients. In addition to supplementing the body's water loss during exercise, it can also supplement minerals such as sodium and potassium.

*Energy drinks include oligosaccharides such as water-soluble dietary fiber (such as fructooligosaccharides, isomalttooligosaccharides, soybean oligosaccharides, etc.). Dietary fibers can delay the absorption of refined sugars and help maintain blood sugar stability. Most of the sugars in ordinary beverages are sugars such as granulated sugar, glucose, and fructose, which are easily absorbed, which is not conducive to blood sugar stability.

*The osmotic pressure of sports drinks should be lower than or equal to the blood osmotic pressure of the human body, so that the human body can more easily absorb the nutrients in sports drinks. Compared with ordinary beverages, sports drinks have much lower sugar content than common beverages such as fruit juice drinks, colas, and tea drinks, and they are free of carbonated gas, caffeine, and alcohol.

What are the types of energy drinks?

After I investigated the energy drinks on the market, I found that there are currently 6 types of energy drink on the market.

*Glucose energy drink.The main ingredients are sweetener,salt which is used for replenishing sugar and salt lost during exercise.

*Vitamin energy drink.Most of the nutritions are complex of vitaminB,vitaminC,green tea extract(caffeine),natural sweetener and natual fruit flavor powder which help people focus on metal when they during the soprt exercise.

*Electrolyte energy drink normally contains a perfect balance of all 6 electrolytes plus support minerals that work together to provide complete hydration without stomach upset so you can feel and perform your best. This is suitable for exercise which is last one hour.But remerber do not choose the electrolyte energy drinks that contains caffeine after a long time exercise beacuse caffeine is a diuretic and can actually dehydrate you.

*Dietary fiber energy drink also call plant energy drink which is low calories.The main nutritions of the energy drink are dietary fiber,vintamin B complex,Isomaltooligosaccharide etc.

Do we need to supplement energy drink?

Energy drink is not suitable for everybody.Autually,if it is an ordinary person who does not exercise regularly, but drinking a large amount of energy drink for a long time. It will increase the burden on organs such as heart disease and kidney disease. For people who already have kidney disease, hypertension and other diseases , they can't drink energy drink at all. because it contains a certain amount of potassium, sodium, and other electrolytes. It is also not suitable for patients with diabetes beacuse it contains sugar. In addition, the elderly and children are also advised not to drink energy drink.

Targeted supplementation of nutrition lost during exercise can play a role in maintaining and improving exercise capacity and accelerating the elimination of fatigue after exercise.So it is indispensable for athletes, and for other people with large physical exertion.If someone often go to fitness and sweat more also can drink it properly. For other people, such as office workers and students drink it occasionally , which can be supplemented with vitamins and minerals in an appropriate amount.Lifeworth also designed an energy drink specifically for office workers and students,which call  brainstorming energy drink.

Energy drink,you know,just in order to supplement energy for our body.Only when we have a cutback of energy,then we need to supplement energy to keep our body work well.

For example,when we are in a sport activity and last more than one hour execise,our body will lost water,sugar and some electrolytes.Here I will explain those nutrition how to support our body.

*Electrolytes are minerals that carry an electrical charge. They have an impact on how your muscles function, how alkaline your blood is, and how much water you have in your body. In addition to their individual roles, electrolytes often work in harmony with vitamins and other minerals in the body to keep you feeling good and performing at your best.It would be pretty much impossible to achieve peak performance without proper hydration with balanced electrolytes so pay special attention to your individual hydration needs to stay healthy!

*Why we need to supplement sugar?Because exercise causes a large amount of muscle glycogen consumption, and muscles increase blood glucose intake, which causes blood glucose to drop. If it is not replenished in time, the working muscles will be weak. On the other hand, because more than 90% of the brain's energy supply comes from blood sugar, a decrease in blood sugar will weaken the brain's ability to regulate exercise and produce fatigue.

*Why we need to supplement water?We sweat during exercise, which means the loss of body water. We only need to add enough water to accelerate the discharge of metabolic waste, enhance the body's microcirculation, promote the body's absorption of nutrients, increase the body's aerobic capacity, and restore muscle as soon as possible.

After reading this, I think you can already objectively judge whether you need energy drinks.Now,let’s continnue discuss our next question. How to choose a suitable energy drink?

Health experts point out that energy drinks have four characteristics: one is to supplement water; the other is to contain nutrients such as sugar, multivitamins and minerals; the third is to have functional ingredients; the fourth is to be free of carbonic acid, caffeine, and alcohol.

We lose mainly water, sugar, and electrolytes during sports or physical labor, so the energy drink what we choose need to include these ingredients in energy drinks,which will be better.

For many ordinary fitness enthusiasts, energy drinks can be used when doing amount of exercises and the body loses more water.

Drinking ordinary water and multivitamin beverages within 1 hour of exercise can be done without special supplements, but carbonated beverages cannot be selected.

Those who exercise for more than 1 hour should drink a energy drink containing glucose or an electrolyte energy drink containing salt.It is recommended to use oligosaccharide drinks and energy drinks containing amino acids, electrolytes, vitamins and other substances when exercising with high intensity and high calorie consumption.
