What is Caffeinated Water?
Caffeinated Water is water that is fortified with caffeine. Water keeps you well hydrated and replenished. Caffeine stimulates your central nervous system, increases brain activity, and raises concentration and alertness. The result? A refreshing drink that gives the perfect energy boost.
How much caffeine is in Caffeinated Water?
Caffeinated water can range in caffeine content. It all depends on the brand, the size of the bottle, and how much you drink. Generally, caffeinated water can contain between 34 and 125 milligrams of caffeine per serving. This compares to an average of around 72 milligrams in the standard energy drink, meaning you don’t need to worry about skimping on caffeine content one bit!
Is Caffeinated Water natural?
Not completely. Caffeine is a natural substance. It is found in plants such as coffee beans, tea leaves, cocoa beans, kola nuts, and guarana berries. However, it can also be artificially produced through urea and chloroacetic acid which still impact the body in the same way.
Caffeinated water can be made with both synthetic or natural caffeine. Luckily, whether you like to keep it au natural or don’t mind a drink where humans had to work a little magic - there’s always something for you at PlantX. Just have a look at the product information where all the important bits and bobs will be added.
Is Caffeinated Water good for you?
We are made of 60% water. So, as you would expect, water is vital for humans. Water helps move nutrients around the body, lubricate our joints, keep the body at a regular temperature and keep your cells and tissue in check. It maintains your cognitive functions. It increases your energy levels, reduces fatigue, flushes out toxins, improves skin, promotes weight loss - to be honest there’s not really much water doesn’t do!
Caffeine is also good for you in a variety of ways. Apart from its famous benefit of making humans more alert and aware (making it an excellent partner for long days), caffeine is also packed with other potential health benefits. It stimulates the nervous system, raising the production of mood-boosting neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline. This means caffeine has the power to brighten your mood (and all of us coffee lovers can attest).
Caffeine is also argued to speed up how fast the body can burn fat. In some circumstances, caffeine has been shown to increase the resting metabolic rate by up to 11%. So, if you are looking for a way to speed up your metabolism, Caffeinated water may help do the trick.
Finally, Caffeine has also been linked to potentially protecting against multiple conditions and diseases, such as lowering the risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes.
