Healthy Energy Drink Powders for 2022
Are you tired of paying $1.50 - $5.00 for your morning or early afternoon energy boost? Powder energy drinks provide the same energizing effects as canned energy drinks at significant savings. (My momma taught me years ago that powdered hydration drinks are way cheaper than bottled ones. The same applies to energy drinks.)
Energy Drink Powder Cost Savings
Manufacturing and shipping costs increase with a product’s weight and packaging. Canned energy drinks pre-add water or carbonated water to a powdered energy formula. When you purchase canned energy drinks, the extra packaging, volume, and weight cost more than the same energizing ingredients in a powdered form.
For substantial savings, add water or tonic water yourself to a dry powdered energy drink mix. If you do, instead of paying dollars for your pick-me-up, you pay pennies.
The Convenience of Powdered Drinks
Powders provide conveniences that canned drinks do not. They are lighter, easy to store, and put you in control.
1. Reduced Weight
Instead of lugging an additional (one-serving) pound, carry a small pouch of dry powder to mix with water. This is ideal for the classroom or outdoor adventures.
2. Easy Storage
In the classroom or the office, a tub of dry powder mix conveniently gives a lift whenever you need it. You do not have to lug a case of energy drinks in. And you do not have to keep them cold.
3. Dosage Control
With a powdered mix, you are in charge of both the dosage and taste.
Caffeine is the major ingredient promoting cognitive alertness and gives the physical wake-me-up in energy drinks. However, the body builds tolerance to caffeine. Consuming the same amount of caffeine daily reduces its performance benefits.
With a powdered mix, you control each serving’s caffeine dosage. Two scoops of powder double the caffeine amount in the per serving nutrition facts label. A half scoop cuts the caffeine dosage in half. (The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cites that for most healthy adults, 400 mg of caffeine per day is not typically associated with dangerous side effects.)
Likewise, with a powder, you are in control of the product’s taste. If you are like me, and you like weaker-tasting drinks like herbal teas, simply add more water than outlined in the directions. If you prefer stronger-tasting drinks, add less water.
Be wise with your caffeine consumption. Cardiologist Nieca Goldberg, medical director of NYU Women’s Heart Program, warns against ‘dry scooping’ or eating energy drink powders dry. When eaten dry, energy drink powders quickly overload the body, resulting in jitters, irregular or speeding heart rate, upset GI tract, and they may temporarily raise blood pressure.
Healthy Energy Drinks
Powdered energy drinks are not necessarily healthier than canned ones. The nutrition label helps you determine how healthy an energy drink is. Things to take into consideration are:
Sugar sweetens things up, but according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), sugary drinks are associated with obesity. A whole host of health consequences result from carrying significant extra weight.
Healthier options include drinks with no added sugar or are sugar-free and low-calorie.
2. How Much Caffeine Does It Contain?
The FDA does not require brand owners to list the caffeine content in energy drinks. In addition, a drink may say it contains 100 mg of caffeine but not include the caffeine content from other caffeine sources. Watch for additional caffeine sources in the ingredients list. Green tea extract, green coffee beans, guarana berries, yerba maté, guayusa, kola nuts, and yaupon holly contain caffeine.
3. Extra Chemicals
The healthiest energy drinks are those with the simplest formulas.
Along with caffeine, many energy drinks include B-Vitamins. B-Vitamins help break down food and convert it into usable energy.
The long list of additional chemical ingredients in many popular energy drinks is not natural. It is like expecting your car to run well with water mixed in the gasoline. For consistent long-term healthy living, cut out as many extra chemicals as possible.
