Monster, Red Bull, 5-Hour Energy Review

Monster- Red Bull -  5-Hour Energy Review

A recent edition of Esquire Magazine focused their attention on Energy Drinks.  The title of the article monster, red bull, 5-hour energywas "How To Work Late" .  The picture of the review is included here. What struck me most is the really concerning side effects of these energy drinks. Why would someone do that to their body when their are energy alternatives with no side effects?

For Monster Energy side effects include Jitters, excessive bathroom breaks and over the long time, trouble sleeping and calming down.  No wonder, it contains the amount of caffeine found in FOUR cups of coffee!!

Red Bull might be great helping a man sky dive from space but it leaves a sour taste in your mouth that won't go away no matter what you do. The caffeine content is similar to a cup of coffee but the sugar is over 27 grams!

5-Hour Energy has the same amount of caffeine as Monster and no sugar. It's energy ingredients focus around B vitamins. While there are many good aspects of B's, too much of a good thing is too much. I recently heard of a situation from a chiropractor friend,  of someone having temporary paralysis in their face from drinking too many of these.  People report crashing as they come off the "high" of the energy.

Why not consume smart energy drinks rather than ones with questionable side effects?

Visalus Go has the Instant Energy that you need right away.

Visalus Pro offers sustained energy for endurance and alertness.

5-hour energy alternativeBoth were developed by Dr. Michael Seidman who is listed as one of the top nutritional physicians in the US by the NIH. Both give you the energy you need without side effects found in other over the counter energy drinks. Being energetic in the moment and in the long term means feeding your body with products that actually benefit it. Visalus Go and Visalus Pro will do that as well as Monster Energy, Red Bull and 5-Hour Energy in the short term and much better over time because you won't be risking side effects.
