Hydrating With Caffeine Is Crazy! And Here’s Why

Hydrating With Caffeine Is Crazy! And Here’s Why

Dec 14, 2022Palak Agarwal

Today we live in such a fast-paced society that we overuse caffeine to the point where it no longer benefits us but can hurt us, including causing long-term health effects. The source and the rate at which we drink caffeine is no longer healthy, and can even leave us dehydrated. Thin Energy uses plant-based energy to give you the boost you need throughout the day without the crash and grogginess caffeine leaves you with.

What is Caffeine?

Caffeine is a natural stimulant found in more than 60 plants. The substance stimulates the central nervous system to make the body feel more awake and alert. It increases the activity of the nervous system and brain, and in small doses can prove to be beneficial. However, large doses (which most people consume) can have harmful health consequences such as heart palpitations,
dehydration, and increased anxiety. Caffeine in energy drinks, and other beverages are an even more dangerous ballpark. Not only do you have to be concerned about the synthetic caffeine large brands add to their beverages, but
also the actual amount you consume can be foggy as well. According to the Medline Plus’ page on caffeine “Energy drinks are beverages that have added caffeine. The amount of caffeine in energy drinks can vary widely, and sometimes the labels on the drinks do not give you the actual amount of caffeine in them”. Meaning you can’t always be sure how much caffeine you’re
actually consuming. In combination with the added sugars, this can only fast-track the harmful effects of caffeine. People with elevated health risks such as pregnancy, diabetes, and high blood pressure should avoid heavily caffeinated beverages when they can.

Caffeine for Hydration

Now, despite what commercial beverage companies have told you, caffeine for hydration makes no sense. There are a lot of misleading products out there on the market that claim to hydrate but continue to have caffeine in them such as Liquid IV, and DEFNY. A study shared by the National Library of Medicine reveals that “It is often suggested that coffee causes dehydration and its consumption should be avoided or significantly reduced to maintain fluid balance”. Due to the increased urination amongst caffeine consumption, lack of proper fluids can cause an imbalance, which makes it harder to stay hydrated, eventually leading to dehydration.

Why is Thin Energy Different?

Thin Energy offers everything traditional caffeinated drinks do not offer, First and foremost, Thin Energy is plant base, not caffeine-based. That means no synthetic caffeine and no added sugars, therefore no health risks that come with your traditional caffeine drinks. Providing energy from a natural plant-based source is more sustainable for your body and safe, giving you the energy, you need without the caffeine crash (causing even more tiredness). This is done by
adding vitamins such as elderberry, zinc, and vitamin D, replenishing your body with essential nutrients as opposed to stripping them away. Thin energy also remains caffeine-free while boosting your metabolism and replenishing hydration levels. Replacing caffeine in the spot of vitamin-filled beverages for hydration is simply crazy. Sugar and caffeine-loaded beverages can cause hindering health effects, amongst dehydration. Thin Energy is the next best thing besides water when it comes to providing adequate hydration. Thin
Energy gives you caffeine-free, sugar-free hydration equipped with vitamins to nourish your body with metabolism-boosting vitamins.
