A Look At Energy Drink Reviews

Energy drinks are trending very popular right now and the Internet is ripe with many different reviews and comparisons. We'll take a look at the drinks and the review process to make sure that the best ones come to the forefront. In other words, this is a review of the reviews.

Be careful, many reviews are biased

One thing to remember when looking for, or reading energy drink reviews, is that the vast majority of these reviews are written by the manufacturer or an agent of the manufacturer. Not that this is necessarily bad, but it's not objective. And yes, there are objective reviews out there, some of which are actually written by medical or para-medical researchers. After all is said and done, you owe it to yourself to do your own thorough research on your favorite drink.

There are well over 50 known energy drinks and more being concocted each week. One review site had more than 300 reviews. They went so far as to review all the iterations of a single product, so the 8 and 16 ounce container, plus the shots the same manufacturer puts out. So, make sure you are aware of all the specifics about your favorite drink or shot before doing your research. For instance, if you like to drink the 8 ounce container, make sure you get the review for that size.

Make sure you compare apples to apples

Many energy drink reviews can be misleading if you don't know what you are looking for. For instance, some reviews are straight head-to-head comparisons. These are great for getting detailed information about your favorite drink. On the other hand, there are sometimes negative reviews which only emphasize the nasty side effects that can possibly occur. There are also reviews out there that are overly subjective and have no real usefulness other than to promote one brand over another. After all, it is a big business so proceed with caution.

Know how much caffeine is in your drink

Caffeine amounts vary greatly within the energy drink reviews, from a ridiculous 69.5 mg. of caffeine in a 5-Hour Energy Shot to a scanty 4.5 mg. of caffeine in a regular Mountain Dew soft drink. It is important to remember however that coffee particularly expresso can have 17 times as much caffeine as a normal energy drink.

In short, always do your own research and find the energy drink reviews that tell the whole story on your favorite drinks. Do diligent and thorough research to try and find at least three different reviews to compare. Lastly and most important, use good judgement when it comes to anything you consume. It is your body and you should treat it with care.
