While I do believe that there are a lot , home to Mario, Donkey Kong, the GameCube and now the DSof gamers out there that do not wish to play online games (there are even those that detest it), there seem to be just as many that enjoy the online worlds presented to them. You don’t have to look any further than the success of EVERQUEST, ULTIMA ONLINE, DARK AGE OF CAMELOT or STAR WARS GALAXIES to see how popular these games are.

How To Choose the Best Sports Energy Drink

How To Choose the Best Sports Energy Drink

All right boys and girls, this one’s for the hardest workers and true athletes who work on it day in and day outfor those who truly need energy drinks in order to succeed. But of course, this one would so work for those who chug down energy drinks just so they could work out longer.

There are basically two classifications of energy beverages, the two are enhancement type and the rehydration type. Enhancement types are basically for those who need sudden bursts of energy specifically for work, usually needed by those working overtime. It usually contains high amounts caffeine, carbohydrates and sugar, most commonly known as power drinks. It is not exactly advisable for athletes due to their high carbohydrate content and the energy crash after the maximum effect has been achieved, which works in a limited amount of time due to the caffeine.

The second option, and the main topic of this article, would be the sports energy drink, more commonly known as the sports drink. It is also considered to be healthy in comparison with energy drinks, due to its lack of sugar and caffeine. It is usually consumed by athletes who play high intensity sports such as basketball and football. Its main function is basically to rehydrate the body of the lost fluids due to sweating, ergo adding to the overall stamina and endurance of the player. It’s also used to prevent dehydration in people suffering from diarrhea.

It’s commonly composed of proteins to help with muscle development as well as vitamins and minerals. Energy bars or protein bars are usually good too during rigorous training as a solid food counterpart. In a sense, they’re all well and good, as long as approved by the local and international health departments. In most cases, all sports drinks offer more or less the same ingredients anyway. Ginseng, protein, vitamins and minerals, they’re all the same. It’s the effect that we want, but not in the placebo, psychosomatic sort of way.

You could say that some energy drinks have gone as far as turning people into monsters (Not the scifi, but The Hulk type of monsters). By monsters, meaning over physically fit and muscular. One biggest brand claiming to have helped athletes become superstars is Cytomax. It offers a wide variety of products, from protein enhancers to endurance beverages. An extreme in this sort of sports drink would be the energy beverage called Bawls, which is known for a fact to have as much as 150 milligrams of caffeine in a single serving, far by surpassing the typical 8 oz. of brewed coffee, which contains only 6080 milligrams of caffeine.

In the long run, choosing the best energy drink, either for work or sports, is really up to you. You can try different brands and sizes, but when you do just keep in mind everything you have worked and sacrificed for, because it involves your health.
