The main purpose of energy drinks is to increase energy levels and so let you exercise for longer. The body relies mainly on muscle glycogen to fuel muscle contractions. That's why energy drinks can come in handy.  

They contain a mix of the best fast-acting carbohydrates designed to increase stamina. Additionally, some energy drinks contain a blend of other energy-boosting ingredients and plant extracts.

Hydration before exercise


It is recommended that individuals drink about 500 ml of fluid about 2 h before exercise. This would be the ideal timespan to promote an adequate hydration of the body as well as to allow for the excess water to be eliminated (*1).

Hydration during exercise


During exercise activity, athletes should aim to consume between 600 and 1200 ml of a sports drink containing 4 to 8% of fast-acting carbohydrates (g/100 ml). The American College of Sports Medicine advises an average of 250 to 300 ml for every 15 minutes of exercise (*1).

Hydration after exercise


Athletes' health and wellbeing can benefit by initiating the recovery process right after the end of a workout session or a competition. It is common to weigh less after a strenuous exercise session. This is generally due to loss of fluids rather than loss of fat. 

For this reason, you should drink enough water once you finish your workout, so that you can rehydrate your body and compensate for all fluid losses.
