Energy drinks are one of the most popular ways to boost energy whilst on the go. However, most energy drinks on the market are high in sugar and are almost always followed by an energy crash. Therefore, it’s important to know which ingredients to look for to ensure you are not only getting a sustained boost of energy, but other health benefits too!
EHPlabs has always been dedicated to creating the most innovative supplements using scientifically-backed ingredients. OxyShred Ultra Energy has been created as a ready to drink energy beverage that goes above and beyond - not only does it boost energy, but it also contains powerful ingredients to accelerate fat burning, enhance mood, boost immunity and promote overall wellness.
What should you look for in an energy drink?
Caffeine is the key energy enhancing ingredient used which also stimulates brain function for increased concentration and alertness.
OxyShred Ultra Energy contains not one but three different sources of caffeine to help you power through your day and workouts. Caffeine Anhydrous is a tested source of caffeine that has been shown to increase energy levels while also assisting with performance. Guarana Extract is an ancient amazonian plant that has high bioactive components including antioxidants, caffeine and properties that may improve focus and cognition. To round out the caffeine components, OxyShred Ultra Energy also includes Green Tea Extract which contains potent antioxidants and properties that can assist with fat loss and provide a sustained energy boost.
L-Carnitine is an amino acid that supports energy production to promote fat burning and has also been added into our unique Oxyshred Ultra Energy formula. It has been shown to help maintain healthy cellular energy metabolism to support brain function and heart health. In addition, L-Carnitine may improve exercise performance and recovery due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties shown to reduce exercise-induced muscle damage. It has been demonstrated to increase oxygen supply and blood flow to the muscles, helping reduce fatigue, discomfort and muscle soreness.
#3 Vitamin B ComplexB vitamins assist with overall general well-being, energy production, brain function and nutrient metabolism by helping to convert nutrients into energy. B vitamins also increase testosterone levels in men, which may assist in muscle strength and recovery. Figures show that a sizable proportion of the developed populations suffer deficiency in one or more B vitamins, suggesting that supplementation may be of particular benefit. The vitamin B complex is something you can also find in our Oxyhsred Ultra Energy formula.
#4 Natural Mood EnhancersTaurine and tyrosine are amino acids known for their cognitive support benefits which have also been included in Oxyshred Ultra Energy. They have been shown to enhance cognitive function, mood elevation and overall focus. In addition, Taurine can decrease feelings of anxiety and stress. This is particularly beneficial for anyone on a caloric deficit diet, as it can help to mitigate brain fog, mood swings and lethargy. If you’re looking to not only be more energized but feel good too, be sure to keep an eye out for these in the ingredient list!
Are energy drinks safe?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn't regulate energy drinks and despite clinical studies demonstrating that these products are generally safe, they could result in negative reactions when consumed too frequently or in large quantities.
EHPlabs is dedicated to formulating the most efficacious and safest supplements on the market. That’s why Oxyshred Ultra Energy contains zero sugar, and has added ingredients for numerous health benefits!
What ingredients are bad in energy drinks?
#1 SugarMost energy drinks contain a massive amount of added sugars. Consuming too much added sugar has been linked to increased blood pressure and chronic inflammation. It also increases the risk of weight gain, diabetes, obesity and heart disease. The American Heart Association suggests that women should aim for less than 24g of added sugar and men less than 36g per day as part of a healthy diet. In an effort to meet these recommendations, it's important to monitor your intake and opt for low added sugar alternatives where possible.
OxyShred Ultra Energy has been formulated to avoid all these issues by containing zero sugar, making it a healthier alternative to conventional energy drinks.
#2 Too much caffeineDespite caffeine being the key energy promoting ingredient, it’s important to look at the dosage in each serving and not exceed the recommended amount. Concentrated caffeine doses in energy drinks can negatively impact the digestive tract, resulting in vomiting, diarrhea, nausea and diarrhea. Side effects of too much caffeine can also result in heart palpitations, excessive sweating, irritability and headaches. Therefore, it’s important to look for an energy drink that doesn’t contain too much caffeine and contains other ingredients for a sustained energy boost.
The amount of caffeine in OxyShred Ultra Energy is a responsible dose, providing clean and sustained energy without the crash or negative side effects.
What energy drink is the healthiest for you?
The healthiest energy drinks are ones which contain a small amount of sugar and have ingredients other than caffeine for benefits beyond increased energy. This is what makes Oxyshred Ultra Energy a healthy choice for an energy drink!

Mood Enhancer Nootropics: Taurine and tyrosine cross the blood brain barrier and switch on cognitive function, mood elevation and overall focus. Perfect for people that are on a caloric deficit diet as these key ingredients help to mitigate brain fog, mood swings and lethargy.
