Energy drinks boost your metabolism for better athletic performance in your favorite outdoor sports activities.

Commercial energy drinks contain sugar, caffeine and sometimes various mystery ingredients such as ephedrine, taurine, ginseng, B-vitamins, guarana seed, carnitine, creatine, inositol, ginkgo biloba (How do energy drinks work? - TLC Cooking)(Truth About Energy Drinks - squidoo) and choline (Home made energy drinks - Jim Ley). I have lots of experience on how sugar and caffeine affect my body. I'm not so sure about consuming these pharmaceuticals and exotic herbs because their energy effects are not so clear and their dosage vs. toxicity effects are not so well studied.

A multitude of energy drink brands and flavors have recently appeared in our stores. Please add a comment to describe your favorite energy drink, the effects it has on your body and how you use it before, during or after strenuous activities.
