Many people rely on caffeine to help them stay alert, feel more invigorated and provide a quick "pick me up." If you are sensitive to caffeine, or are looking to cut back on caffeine as part of a healthy diet, consider caffeine free energy drinks as an alternative. Many of these products replace caffeine with other natural ingredients, which may provide you with all of the upsides of caffeine without any of the downsides.
Decaf 5-Hour Energy Shot
The Decaf 5-Hour Energy shot claims to have as much caffeine as a half cup of decaffeinated coffee. Its citrus flavor drink contains B-vitamins and amino acids. It also contains choline, said to work with brain neurotransmitters that affect memory functioning. While the company also makes a caffeinated version, this product is marketed toward those who need the energy boost but are sensitive to caffeine.
XS Energy Drink
XS Energy Drink has two caffeine free products -- a cranberry grape and tropical blast drink. According to the CoachLevi website, the energy boost you receive from this drink comes from the added Vitamin C and Vitamin B that "kicks your immune system into high gear."
SEA20 comes in four flavors -- citrus fruit, ginger lemon lime, pomegranate and peach mango. The company's website says the drinks are 100 percent organic and caffeine free. The drinks contain four ingredients -- seaweed extract, agave nectar, inulin fiber, Vitamins C and B-6, which make them high in fiber and antioxidants and may provide the energy boost.
