Author : Syefan Vijjan

Nowadays it is really difficult to know what actually is healthy, whether you're trying to find energy drinks and food bars or any foods or add-ons on the market. A week doesn't go by that we don't hear about one product or another that could very well be treacherous to us. It really comes down to getting a good look at all the products you buy, thinking about the ingredients that are in it and the effect it really has on you.Do you actually get energy out of your drink or just a feeling of jitteriness? The following exploration of energy drinks and food bars will provide you with some guidelines regarding these products.

Energy drinks that come with alcohol are being scrutinized by the FDA in the U.S., and guidelines are being developed to ban them or keep them under control. It's typically an awful idea to blend alcohol along with stimulants - for example, caffeine. This incorporates not just energy drinks that have alcohol in them, but furthermore going into a bar and requesting a mixed drink that has both. The explanation for this is that alcohol is a downer and caffeine is an upper and mixing the two can be destructive to your body. In addition, caffeine can reduce your awareness of being under the influence of alcohol, while not making it any safer to be driving or engaging in activities that demand your alertness. So it's optimal to pass up the mixture of energy drinks with alcohol.

The health benefits of most food bars is nothing short of a candy bar with a lot of sugar or high fructose corn syrup in them while there are still a few that are what they claim to be. If you really want to know what the differences are you'll need to read the ingredients and pay close attention to how they make you feel for a bit after eating them. Sugar generally gives you a short burst of energy followed by a crash. Those food bars that do not contain added sugars are more healthy for you and typically contain only natural nuts, seeds and fruit. Your energy bar can be a healthy one especially if composed of natural organic or raw foods.

When going through the energy drinks section at the supermarket, you may have noticed, or tried something called fruit infused water or a beverage with a similar name. What you are really seeing is a water with a hint of fruit. Because these drinks lack the sugar and caffeine of an energy drink they are more healthy for you. Make these "energy" drinks easily in your own kitchen by adding some fruit flavoring to your everyday water for a pleasant satisfying taste. These are a great alternative to energy drinks without all of the nasty side effects of an energy drink.

Energy drinks and food bars, then come in many assortments and some are a lot better than others. Yet, you should remember, that even the greatest among them are not meant to be consumed all day, as a replacement to water and real foods. Notwithstanding how natural a package states that it is, it can't be as genuine as whole foods or a glass of unpolluted water. Concisely, it's alright to drink energy drinks occasionally or eat a food bar as a snack, except you shouldn't demand them to present you with all your nutritional demands.
