Oftentimes the health industry wants us to believe that all energy drinks are created equel. We know, however, this is not true. In this article, we'll explain why energy drinks are not created equal and how Perk Energy stands apart.
What's in Most Energy Drinks
When it comes to generic energy drinks, most contain the following ingredients in excess amounts: sugar and caffeine.
These types of drinks benefit the consumer with little-to-no nutrition and offer no other value aside from the taste. True, they help keep you awake, but the amount of sugar and caffeine crammed into just a 12-oz (or more) container can quickly surpass the 400mg daily recommended limit. (That's about four cups of coffee per day.)
Energy drinks like these can hurt your immune system. Excessive amounts of sugar and caffeine can cause unwanted side effects, such as headaches, nausea, and weight gain. Sugary energy drinks can also keep you up at night when your body needs to rest. In the long run, these drinks will do more harm than good.
Unfortunately, many looking for a coffee alternative will turn to unhealthy energy drinks without knowing what's in them and how much. And hey, we don't fault you if you've turned to unhealthy energy drinks because marketing ploys are sneaky for a reason.
What Makes Perk Energy Different
While it's tricky to differentiate the good energy drinks from the generic ones, Perk Energy does stand out from the rest, and we can prove it. Here's what makes us different.
The Perfect Coffee Alternative
Maybe you're looking for a coffee alternative because you want to cut back on your caffeine and sugar intake. Perhaps you're looking for a protein caffeine drink that serves the same purpose as a cup of coffee would but has more health benefits. Or, maybe you want to move to a protein energy drink, to switch things up and try something new. For those seeking a coffee alternative, Perk Energy offers a variety of flavored protein energy drinks to choose from.
Low Sugar and Low Caffeine per Serving
While you can easily consume more sugar and caffeine than the recommended amount with one or two energy drinks, Perk Energy keeps it low for consumers. Each serving size contains about 100mg of caffeine and no added sugars. This makes it possible for you to stay alert when you need to, without experiencing the side effects of excessive caffeine.
Most energy drinks only offer sugar and caffeine (and an unspecified amount of obnoxious preservatives). Perk Energy, however, is on an entirely different playing field.
In addition to moderate amounts of caffeine in each serving to help you stay alert, we've added natural and organic ingredients, such as Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG). EGCG is a plant-based antioxidant that helps reduce inflammation and prevent brain and heart disease. Not only that, but EGCG also enhances brain function and aids in weight loss.
As the name suggests, our protein energy drinks also provide some protein, which helps support lean muscles. This is an excellent option for those who enjoy working out and will benefit from the boost of energy from the caffeine, which will increase stamina and endurance.
We've also added collagen – the most abundant type of protein found in the body – to our protein energy drinks. This protein is excellent for improving joint health, hair, skin, and fingernail growth.
Perk Energy Is Different
As we've mentioned, several energy drinks offer no real value and can offset your physical and mental well-being. Choose protein energy drinks that provide nutrition and value; choose Perk Energy. We offer the perfect alternative to your regular cup of coffee or generic energy drink brand. Give us a try and let us know what you think!
