Energy drinks

Fitness Channel / Bullz-Eye Home

With high amounts of caffeine, natural stimulants such as Guarana and Ginseng, and countless chemicals previously unheard of in the English language, Energy Drinks promise to pump you up for an all-night party, a cross-country drive or just a late-night cram session. But with so many on the market, it’s a good idea to read up before you drink up.

Energy Drink Sites

Red Bull
The big dog in the house, Red Bull burst into America in 1997 and is credited with starting the energy drink craze that continues to this day. With its slim can and light taste (compared to other energy drinks), it remains a favorite at parties, concerts and clubs.

Monster Energy
Another popular option.

The energy drink with a very unfortunate name that has gained massive popularity among the hardcore gaming community – unique from other energy drinks in that it comes in a stylish glass bottle, and its unbelievably high caffeine content.

If anyone is going to challenge Red Bull for number one status, it’s Rockstar. This well-marketed drink packs a big pop in an even bigger can (twice the size of Red Bull’s) and is available in regular and diet versions.
