The world of energy drinks is vast, and there isn’t enough time to give every drink the full “Energy Drink of the Month” deep dive review. In my attempt to guide my fans through this world of energy drinks, I like to share the science behind the various caffeinated beverages I come across in my travels.
Energy drinks have come a long way since 2003 when all energy drinks looked like Red Bull or Monster. GURU Organic Energy drink is more proof of that. GURU is not your stereotypical energy drink, and in this post, I’ll review the key ingredients, the caffeine content, and if it’s a good idea to drink this every day.
Ask a science nerd like me about “Organic Energy,” and you’ll get a lot of puns. There’s “organic energy,” as in energy that’s inherent or innate. Then, there’s “Organic” as in “based on the study of carbon-based molecules.” But what about carbon-ated drinks?
All puns aside (sorry, not sorry), let’s talk about a carbonated energy drink that is certified-Organic.
In this post, we’ll review three key questions. First, who is this for – what do the ingredients say about the target audience? Second, what are those key ingredients, and what do they do? Third, can you drink this every day?
On a honeymoon to New Zealand, I couldn’t help myself. I dawdled at every store looking for energy drinks and caffeinated beverages I’d never seen before. I only found a few, but I’ve shared my gallery below. I was only there for a week or so, but I was surprised how seldom I saw any energy drinks at all. In Southern California, I spot people drinking energy drinks on a daily basis, or spot the crushed empty cans in a trash can. My fascination for energy drink habits in other countries is not a new interest, but it certainly is growing. If you’ve got a story to tell about energy drink habits in your neighborhood, I’d love to hear it.
