Natural or chemical energy?
The ingredients of one of the most popular electrolyte sports drinks in Sweden are maltodextrin, fructose, acidulant (citric acid), flavouring, minerals (sodium chloride, tripotassium phosfate, magnesium carbonate), colouring (beta-carotene).
And then, let’s take a look at BoKU Super Chi, a brand new superpowder with energy/rejuvenative formula designed with elite athletes in mind to support: increased strength/endurance and increased muscle recovery time. Recommended 1/2–1 hour before intense training or a race:
BoKU Super Chi contain organic maca root juice, organic cordyceps, organic reishi, organic goji berry juice, and a high PEA extract of organic blue green algae. The formulation is balanced with magnesium and antioxidant rich organic cacao (raw dark chocolate), mineral rich organic Vermont maple, organic dulse, and Celtic Sea salt.
Chemical or natural? The choice sounds rather obvious but actually it’s not according to general behaviour. And what kind of energy drink do you chose yourself?
Chemical or Natural?
