I enjoy delicious beverages as much as the next person, but every time I take a sip I am painfully aware of how much sugar I am consuming—and then comes the sugar crash. Sound familiar?
Now there is a healthy alternative to fizzy drinks.
Most fizzy drinks, like soda and energy drinks, are loaded with sugar, caffeine, addictive substances and other artificial ingredients that are harmful to your body. While the intense flavor or bubbly sensation may be appealing, the aftereffects usually leave you feeling sluggish and guilty.
We created a drink that is just as flavorful, just as fizzy, but with zero added sugar and artificial garbage.
There are so many alternative beverages out there that claim to be just as good as soda (we’re talking about you, sparkling water and Crystal Light). But you constantly find yourself picking up that can of Coke again and again because the alternatives just aren’t as flavorful or satisfying.
Here are a few facts that you should know about your sodas and energy drinks, paired with the facts of a healthy alternative to your favorite fizzy drinks.
SODA NUTRITION FACTS
If you’re a soda drinker, the flavor and fizz of your favorite drink sliding down your throat are the highlight of your day.
But the calories make it hard to justify.
Let’s take Coke for example. With 240 calories and 65 grams of sugar, this small can of cola may leave you feeling sugary and guilty.
In fact, the high sugar content is linked to “weight gain, obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, kidney diseases, non-alcoholic liver disease, tooth decay and cavities, and gout, a type of arthritis,” according to the CDC, for high-intake soda drinkers.
Is Diet Cola Healthy?
This is a fair question, and a common misconception. While the zero sugar and zero calories value propositions seem like a healthy alternative, remaining ingredients on the list tell a different story.
The artificial additives that allow this drink to remain just as sweet while containing zero calories include Aspartame, an artificial sweetener that has been linked to increased risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and hormone-related cancers, and cyclamates which are linked to obesity and metabolic conditions risk as well as increased appetite.
Not exactly what we’d call a healthy (nor safe) alternative to soda.
Beyond the focus on soda’s artificial ingredients and high sugar content, the drink simply offers no nutritional value.
ENERGY DRINK NUTRITION FACTS
Whether you’re a daily consumer or a road-trip-one-timer, sometimes we just need a little buzz or boost from an energy drink. But before you grab that Red Bull, think twice.
Energy Drinks are very high in sugar and caffeine–a single can of Red Bull has 39 grams of sugar, 111 mg of caffeine, 160 calories, and is full of artificial additives leaving you feeling jittery with high spikes and low crashes. The FDA does not regulate energy drinks.
When consumed on a regular basis, these drinks are known to lead to dehydration, heart complications (i.e. irregular heartbeat or heart failure), anxiety, nausea, jitters, and insomnia.
