What Are the Differences Between Functional Beverages and Energy Drinks?

Finding Balance Without Sacrificing Health

Energy drinks have been around forever, promising instant vigor and alertness. But they are not without their drawbacks – high calorie, high sugar, high caffeine. As consumers are becoming more conscientious about what they put into their bodies, energy seekers are gravitating toward alternative and healthier options that offer some performance or cognitive benefit.

Restaurants, retail, and grocery store shelves are now stocking a quieter, more balanced approach to enhancing focus and calming the mind. Enter ginseng and l-theanine, the adaptogens of choice offering a refreshing break from high-calorie, sugar-loaded, and caffeine-packed energy drinks.

Understanding Adaptogens: Ginseng and L-Theanine

Ginseng, revered in traditional medicine for centuries, is renowned for its ability to promote a sense of calmness while enhancing mental clarity and focus. Its adaptogenic properties help the body adapt to stress, supporting a more balanced state of mind throughout the day.

Key benefits of ginseng:

  • Energy and Stamina
  • Cognitive Function
  • Immune System
  • Blood Sugar Regulation
  • Stress Reduction

L-theanine, an amino acid found in tea leaves, complements ginseng’s effects by promoting relaxation without drowsiness. Known for its ability to increase alpha brain waves, l-theanine induces a state of calm alertness, enhancing concentration and mental acuity.

Key benefits of l-theanine:

  • Relaxation
  • Improved Focus
  • Sleep
  • Blood Pressure

It’s clear why these two ingredients are increasingly making their way into the daily rituals for busy professionals and fitness enthusiasts alike.
