To stay fit and energized all through out one needs to maintain a healthy eating habit. However for the ones looking for instant energy, there are these popular energy drinks. Energy drinks are healthy soft drinks that are marketed as health drinks. These drinks provide instant energy hence the name energy drinks. The energy drinks contain a mixture of the methylxanthines (which include caffeine) plus Vitamin B complex, as well as a number of herbal ingredients. Some of the other commonly used ingredients in these drinks are guarana (guarana plant extracts) or maltodextrin, carnitine, inositol, creatine, ginkgo biloba and glucuronolactone. Some of these energy drinks also contain sugar while most of these brands use artificial sweeteners. The most important ingredient of energy drinks is however caffeine, the stimulant that is found in beverages like tea or coffee.

These energy drinks are mainly aimed at the youngsters on the go. These are a big hit with the sports persons and active ones and are also called sport drinks. However energy drinks are not very advisable for people who suffer from epilepsy because the sudden rise in energy after the consumption of an energy drink may upset ones health badly. France banned the energy drink Red Bull after an athlete died after consuming 4 cans of it. Britain has issued a warning against it for the pregnant women. Excessive amounts of sugar have been found in these energy drinks. Some of the popular energy drinks are Rockstar, Monster, and Hulk. These have a high tendency to increase diabetes. Diabetes Mellitus is more common with the energy drinkers. The energy drinks are thought to have originated in the form of Iron Brew from Scotland in 1901. In Japan, these drinks date back to the 1960s with the first one being Lipovitan. These drinks called as genki drinks in South Korea are mainly made for the employees who work for long hours.
