Top 5 Healthy Energy Drinks

Energy drinks have gotten a bad reputation. They are mostly known for their sketchy ingredients and high sugar content. While caffeine can help you get a better workout and lose a few pounds, the wrong energy drinks will give you a sugar crash and fat build up. The good news is that the right energy drink can help you get a better workout, nutritious vitamins and minerals, control cravings and even suppress your appetite! I've researched and tested to find you the top selection of healthy energy drinks that will not only provide you with a variety of health benefits, but also help you lose weight!

#1 Ideal Boost Energy 

Caffeine:  80mg

Calories per serving: 5

Sugar: 0g​

Key Ingredients: ​Green Tea, Raspberry Ketones, Green Coffee Bean, Vitamin B3, B6, B12

This is my top recommendation for getting a energy boost. Not only will it give you energy for a better worked but it has many other benefits too! The have a unique hunger-blocking formula to increase fat loss (green tea + caffeine), help you control your appetite (Slendesta + Fibersol), and improve your health and mood (Vitamins B3 + B6 + B12). Raspberry Citrus is not the only flavor they have. Other flavors include Mango Peach, Tropical Punch, Pineapple Strawberry, and Coconut Lime. After taste testing all the flavors I would say that the Raspberry Citrus is the best (my opinion). Another thing I love about this energy drink is that it's VERY affordable! As of this article 1 pack includes 30 individually wrapped servings for only $19.99!

Price: $19.99 or $0.67 per serving

#2 Pure LYFT Energy Stick

Pure LYFT is a stick that you peel back and mix into ANY drink: smoothies, Teas, Water, Fruit Infused Water, Coconut, etc. It doesn't have any taste so you won't notice any difference in your drink. It's convenient and easy to take with you if you are on the go. It's all natural and has no artificial ingredients. It's also vegan friendly! This is a great option to replace any unhealthy drinking habit and has a great kick of caffeine! You can buy this in a "sample" 2 pack if you are uncertain and want to give it a try. If you're interested in learning more be sure to read my full Pure LYFT review. This is pricer than my top recommendation but it's still cheaper and healthier than those gas station energy drinks. You can buy Pure Lyft through their official website or through Amazon, either way it's the same price.
