Sugar In Energy Drinks: What's the Point?

The main purpose of an energy drink is to give you a kick in the ass so you can go about your day with as much zing as possible. They accomplish this goal with a variety of ingredients, namely caffeine, which is largely responsible for that wired feeling you get after consumption.  


However, to people who are no strangers to energy drinks, there’s also another major culprit responsible for the sudden jolt of energy provided by energy drinks: sugar. 


Everyone is familiar with the infamous sugar rush and corresponding crash; you reach a high unlike any other, bouncing off the walls with more energy than you know what to do with. Before long, however, this feeling is replaced with its polar opposite as the sugar rush gives way to a sugar crash, and soon you are sent spiraling back down to Earth feeling even more tired than before. Oftentimes, you are left feeling other less-than-desirable symptoms, like anxiety or jitters, as your body struggles to adjust to the high levels of caffeine and sugar leaving your system. 


Let’s explore this sweet ingredient found in so many of the foods we know and love a little more, shall we? 


Sugar is a type of carbohydrate that provides energy to the body. However, not all sugars are created equal. Simple sugars, such as those found in most energy drinks, are quickly absorbed by the body and can cause a rapid increase in blood sugar levels. This rapid increase in blood sugar can lead to a crash in energy levels and feelings of fatigue and lethargy.


Energy drinks often contain high levels of added sugars, such as sucrose and high fructose corn syrup. A single 16-ounce energy drink can contain up to 54 grams of sugar, which is equivalent to 13.5 teaspoons of sugar – more than twice the daily recommended limit of sugar. Consuming excessive amounts of sugar can lead to a variety of health problems, including weight gain, tooth decay, and an increased risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.


The high levels of sugar found in energy drinks can also lead to dehydration as it draws water from the body’s tissues. Dehydration can lead to headaches, dizziness, and fatigue. Sounds pretty counterproductive, doesn’t it?  


So, what’s the solution? An energy drink free of sugar – the right way.


We could’ve done things the easy way by replacing our sugar with cheap substitutes like Sucralose that are equally bad for your health, if not worse. But we didn’t. Vyper Energy is sweetened with monk fruit and stevia. Both are naturally sweet and low in calories. It’s not the cheap way, it’s the right way. 


We market ourselves to the doers, movers, shakers, and hard-workers in all facets of life, and these negative effects are not conducive to accomplishing your goals. If you’re looking for an energy drink that delivers delicious taste without sacrificing your health, then look no further than Vyper Energy!
