Energy drinks are designed to give the consumer a temporary energy boost. They often contain caffeine, stimulants, herbal supplements, or high amounts of sugar. Their use is often controversial, but many people still swear by them. Sports drinks are beverages intended to replace water, electrolytes and energy lost while performing sports or in training. They are thought to give energy and improve sports performance.
