All About Energy Drinks
What is an energy drink? By definition, an energy drink is made to give the drinker a boost of energy and mental clarity via several ingredients in its recipe, namely caffeine, sugar, and legal stimulants like taurine and guarana. Many use energy drinks instead of coffee to get a boost after getting out of bed in the morning. However, the primary users of energy drinks tend to be students, who use them to stay alert in school or during a long night of studying.
In the United States, the first energy drink, named Dr. Enuf, appeared on store shelves in 1949. By the time Red Bull rose to popularity, energy drinks had been around for quite some time. However, Red Bull saw the beginning of a new, stronger desire for energy drinks than ever before and is credited with starting the energy drink craze in the late 1990s that hasn’t abated.
