The Loch Ness Monster.  The Abominable Snowman.   Big Foot.  These are all legends, or myths that surround different areas of the world.  While, at one point in time there was some semblance of belief around each of these creatures, they have long since become lore and fodder for campfire stories.  Scotland’s beautiful Loch Ness, nestled in the highlands offers a majestic view, but no monster.  Way up in the Himalayas you’ll found some of Earth’s tallest peaks, but not a Yeti.  And in the Pacific Northwest, roaming amongst the cedar and cypress, Bigfoot is allegedly leaving footprints and having his picture taken.  Also not true.  While we’ve come to disprove, dispel and altogether disbelieve these myths from the haunted corners of the globe, we still buy into some of the monsters of energy drinks.  Let’s take the teeth out of these myths.

·         Energy drinks have high, even dangerous, amounts of caffeine- Most energy drinks contain the same amount of caffeine, or less, as your normal, every morning cup coffee.  ACUTEfruit Tropical Blast actually derives its safe and healthy caffeine levels from natural sources, like Yerba Mate Extract. 

·         Younger people are the top consumers of energy drinks- A 2012 study showed that teenagers and young adults (ages 14-21) only consume 1/3 the amount of caffeine as adults.  ACUTEfruit is an energy drink that is designed for active people seeking a healthy alternative to soda, coffee and traditional energy drinks.

·         Taurine is a stimulant- It is actually an element found naturally in the human body, it’s an amino acid.  You can also consume Taurine when you eat seafood or poultry.  In fact, it is used as an additive in baby formula, as it occurs naturally in breast milk. 

·         Energy drinks make you crash-   While most traditional energy drinks contain higher levels of sugar that can raise your spirits it is often followed by a “crash”, as the energy boosting ingredients leave your system.  However there are options that help you avoid the crash and jitters.  ACUTEfruit’s natural ingredients and fruit juice help to deliver a sustained boost and steady energy release after you drink it. 

So these are just a handful of common misconceptions about energy drinks.  It’s important to realize there are alternatives for the active, health conscious individual who is looking for a little boost during the day.  With over 50% fruit juice, 12% of your daily value of fiber and no carbonation, ACUTEfruit Tropical Blast provides exactly that.  So head to Scotland and take a jog along Loch Ness, pack your rope and boots and head to the Himalayas, or load your backpack and hike through the woods of Oregon and Washington, and leave your fear of monsters behind, just not your ACUTEfruit Tropical Blast.  For more information or to order, click here.
