Basically, energy drinks (whether as a dietary supplement or as a lifestyle drink ) consist primarily of water , short-chain carbohydrates in the form of sugar or malt sugar, carbonic acid and natural stimulants such as caffeine , guarana or tea . In addition, another main component of common energy drinks is the so-called taurine - this is an organic acid that has a stimulating effect on the central nervous system and influences the signaling effect between nerves and brain.

Other ingredients of energy drinks are often B vitamins , which spread their effects on the human metabolism and accelerate it. There are also various minerals and trace elements as well as dyes in energy drinks , which round off the active ingredient profile of this drink accordingly. The energy content of energy drinks usually amounts to 40 to 50 calories per 100 milliliter of drink - among them are primarily short-chain carbohydrates in the form of sugar, which mainly makes up the macronutrients contained in the drink.

The strong stimulating effect, which is due to the natural stimulants caffeine, guarana and taurine, is even enhanced by the combination with sugar, which is highly blood-permeable, which is why energy drinks usually also have a more intense, if brief, effect than coffee.

Use energy drinks according to biological standards as a dietary supplement in training and in everyday life

Regardless of whether it is used as a pre-workout , intra-workout or mind booster , energy drinks according to biological standards develop positive performance characteristics on the human organism. Due to the variety of natural stimulants in connection with fast energy sources, physical as well as mental performance reserves are released, which can have a positive effect on training success as well as mental performance. The B vitamins contained in the drink as well as minerals and trace elements also have health-promoting effects by supporting the functioning of a healthy metabolism and helping in the metabolism of the macronutrients proteins, carbohydrates and fats.

Due to their performance-enhancing properties in the natural and sustainable area, energy drinks can be consumed as a dietary supplement or lifestyle drink before or during intense physical or mental stress. However, energy drinks should generally be consumed up to a maximum of 6 hours before the desired night's sleep, in order to be able to guarantee a restful night's sleep despite the natural stimulants contained therein and the comparatively high sugar content.
