People who drink these think they’re giving an energy boost when they’re actually getting an insulin boost. Ironically, you can boost your mitochondria/energy by fasting.

Energy drinks? Kirin, Sapporo and Asahi or those sickly sweet overpriced sugar solutions?

Never touch the latter.

Never drink them. plain water is best. Mineral water.

Every energy drink you consume adds to your death sentence. They could turn you diabetic; if you're a guy it can give with testicles problems. And a bunch of other health problems.

Not sure. When I was in my teens, Mountain Dew was my go to energy drink. Now I drink only coffee, water, mugicha and beer. I tried the little bottle with Taurine to relax and it works well if you have anxiety.

A so-called energy drink has never crossed my lips for no reason other than a guy in work would slug them daily and he would become quite aggressive.

I drink distilled water. It's better than mineral.

I sometimes drink Real Gold, Dekavita or Oronamin C for a sugary hit, especially when I'm on a long bike ride. Those ones all taste similar, and they do what I need them to do.
