Turbo Energy Drink
December 9, 2013
The high competition levels in sports today mean that competitors and athletes are always striving for greatness. There are many ways to gain a competitive edge but eating a balanced diet and consuming enough water should be the main focus for athletes. This allows the human body to produce energy in the most efficient way. In addition to this, there are numerous nutritional supplements available to further assist an athlete with their training. One such boost can be obtained from consuming one of the many available energy drinks before a training session.
Soft drinks have been around for a very long time and many people have the impression that energy drinks are a new introduction to this industry. However, some of today’s most popular soft drinks actually started out life as energy drinks and were sold for energy boosting purposes. For example, Coca-Cola gets its name from the two main ingredients that it contains, both of which are known stimulants – coca leaves and kola nuts. Its main purpose today however is purely for refreshment purposes and people do not think of it as an energy drink.

Another great example of an energy drink that has been around for a long time in the UK is Lucozade. It was first introduced in 1929 and designed to aid hospital patients with their recoveries. Nowadays however, it is sold as a straight energy drink and designed to replace lost energy.
Energy drinks have been the subject of many studies to see what effects they have on the human body, both physiologically and psychologically. One study, which was carried out in 2007, concluded that the consumption of energy drinks by young healthy adults led to a significant improvement in upper body muscle endurance. These findings would later be published in the International journal of sport nutrition and exercise metabolism and so the physiological effects are quite apparent.
Athletes often consume energy drinks before training to give themselves an immediate energy boost. This inevitably allows them to push themselves harder in the gym and achieve greater results. The increased energy levels mean that they can often undertake more exercise than perhaps they might have done without the energy drink. The main stimulant found in energy drinks is caffeine and so athletes can consume them without the fear of reprisal. Energy drinks contain a significant amount of caffeine equivalent to consuming large amounts of tea or coffee and are therefore a much more convenient way to gain a quick energy boost.
Companies who specialise in sports nutrition products like Powerbeck Sports understand the important role that nutrition plays in a training regime. They have been selling nutritional products for a long time now and there original customers were mainly bodybuilders but they now sell direct to the public. This means that more and more athletes are taking advantage of their own brand of supplements to improve their training. Powerbeck’s Turbo Energy drink is designed to give a direct energy boost and is ready-to-drink, with no mixing required. This makes it an excellent gym companion and perfect for anyone wanting to receive an energy boost on the move.
