4 New Beverage Trends To Try
1. An Energy Drink That Tastes Like a Cheat DayMimosa anyone? Enjoy the refreshing taste you love—minus the alcohol! If it sounds too good to be true, it isn’t. Beverage companies are getting quite creative with their flavors these days, including this energy drink from Alani Nu. If you’re looking for a pick-me-up without the calories and sugar, this drink might be for you. It’s packed with 200 mg caffeine and comes in a variety of fun flavors, like Mimosa, Sour Peach Rings, Rainbow Candy, and Hawaiian Shaved Ice. As an added bonus, they even added a splash of biotin to help support your healthy nails and hair!
2. Sugar-free Energy DrinksEnergy drinks are taking the beverage industry by storm, but some consider the high sugar content a big drawback. That’s what makes 3D Energy and Raze™ Energy so appealing! Both are both low-calorie, zero sugar beverages with added ingredients that offer thermogenic properties to support mental alertness. Plus, these beverages can be incorporated into your Paleo, keto or other low-carb lifestyles with ease.
3. Functional BeveragesAnother growing drink category is referred to as “functional beverages.” That may not sound very exciting, but some functional beverages have ingredients or substances added to them referred to as nootropics, intended to support cognitive function and add to your overall wellness plan! While nootropics are an on-going area of study, beverages companies are on top of the trend. Koios™ is one of these so-called functional beverages. It contains a proprietary blend of nootropics as well as MCT oil—a type of fat that is more easily and rapidly digested than other types of fats and used by the body for energy. With the popularity of the keto diet and so much focus on health and wellness, it’s no wonder the sale of functional beverages are soaring!
4. Naturally-Flavored Sparkling WaterIf beverages with caffeine and stimulating herbs aren’t for you, maybe naturally-flavored sparkling water will do the trick! Beverages like Ugly® Water are a flavorful way to increase your water intake, without added sugar, colors or additives. Remember, your hydration status has a major effect on your energy levels and how you feel. It is thought that dehydration as little as 1-2% of body weight can begin to compromise body function and negatively influence performance.
Long story short—staying hydrated is a big deal! Try one of these new drink trends today and start enjoying the refreshing results.
