Consumption of energy drinks has been increasing over the last few decades, particularly amongst teens and young adults. With big budgets for marketing, these drinks are marketed to give you the boost you need to “get it done”. With this expansion, there have been numerous studies showing the detrimental effect that energy drinks have on the body.
Remedy Drinks are makers of Australia’s top-selling range of tasty live cultured drinks. They have just released, what they believe, is a healthy alternative. An alternative to the sugar & chemical heavy energy drinks that are currently available.
It’s a different world now, with health and well being at the forefront of many peoples mind. For instance, we all get those moments where we need a little boost and have already hit the daily coffee quota. Work & life are 100% connected, our personal lives are always on show and we are in a constant state of go go go.
It all adds up
Remedy’s research found that 62% of millennials who had consumed kombucha in the month prior to the research had also consumed energy drinks in the same time period. “Our research unearthed a tension between people wanting to make healthy choices but also needing an energy boost,” said Emmet Condon, Co-founder of Remedy Drinks. “On one hand, people are going with their gut and drinking kombucha but then also smashing a few energy drinks on the side. So we decided to make it right and develop an energy drink that’s actually good for your mind, body, and gut,” explained Emmet.
The launch of the all-natural, no nasties, no sugar energy drink – Remedy Good Energy – continues the Remedy tradition of shaking fizzy drinks up for good with this brand new fizzy believed to be the world’s first kombucha-based energy drink. The average can of energy drink may contain 54 to 62 grams of added sugar; this exceeds the maximum amount of added sugars recommended for an entire day.
“Remedy Good Energy contains all the goodness and benefits of kombucha including live cultures, organic acids, and antioxidants with the added good vibes and good energy buzz of raw green coffee bean extract, green tea and ginseng for a smoother, more enduring real energy kick minus the nasties,” said Emmet. “Remedy Good Energy doesn’t contain any sugar or artificial ingredients usually found in traditional energy drinks.”
“Until now, there hasn’t really been a healthy, tasty alternative to traditional energy drinks. Remedy Good Energy is a market first and one we think people will jump onboard with having already been bitten by the Remedy booch bug,” said Emmet.
I’m sweet enough thanks
Like the Remedy drinks you already know and love, Remedy Good Energy naturally contains no sugar. With an official tick of approval from Sarah Wilson’s ‘I Quit Sugar.’ “Traditional energy drinks can contain more than 10 teaspoons of sugar per 500ml can. Remedy Good Energy contains none,” said Wilson.
“A naturally no sugar, kombucha-based energy drink is a first and it’s great to see Remedy continuing to put their heart and soul into developing new products that will actually give people a healthy option when they need an energy boost.” Remedy Nutritionist Jacqueline Alwill says the launch of Remedy Good Energy is good news for people with busy lifestyles seeking a healthier energy boost. “It’s great to see Remedy upping the ante and developing an energy drink that’s actually good for you with live cultures, organic acids, amino acids, vitamins, and polyphenols minus the unnecessary chemicals added to traditional energy drinks,” said Alwill.
Remedy Good Energy comes in three gut loving flavours:
- Blackberry: Plump & juicy, bursting with goodness. Berry good indeed.
