Is there such a thing as a healthy energy drink?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
Sometimes we need an extra punch of energy to help us finish the day. Don't beat yourself up if you grab an energy drink, just use a little discretion when choosing one. Most energy drinks are loaded with sugar and caffeine that don't promote good health. Next time you're about to take a sip, take a look at the nutrition label and check for these four key guidelines.

Dr. Oz's Energy Drink Guidelines:
  • One energy drink per day
  • No more than 10 grams of sugar 
  • No more than 300 mg of caffeine 
  • No chemicals or artificial sweeteners
