The supplement industry is making billions with the sale of cheap high concentrated powders containing large amounts of caffeine (up to 400mg) per serving mixed with 3dimethyl and some monohydrate for extra weight gain.(Mostly Waterweight.) Downplaying the risks associated with high amounts of caffeine.
Clever marketing, with lots of advertising makes stimulants used as pre workout drinks extremely popular. One mayor incentives for using these powders is its perceived ability to serve as stimulants, when ones energy level drops. Since caffeine does not contain any energy on its own, just stimulants, where is the energy coming from? The body is providing it. Stimulants are nerve toxins that trigger a powerful defense reaction in the body. This is the boost of energy we feel when drinking these powders. So in actual reality the energy boost we feel is actually an energy loss for the body. Crashing and depleting your energy storage, dehydrating, not be able to sleep well, pushing the nervous system, highly addicting…
Caffeine in such high dosage is also a strong diuretic dehydrating the body and is highly acid forming which means it draws highly on the alkaline reserve within the body to maintain safe acid/alkaline balance.
The proper way of getting energy is from the inside out such as proper nutrition, hydration, calmness and a good night sleep! Not from the outside in by using fake stimulant powders with deplete your energy reserves.
