Which is better water or energy drinks Why?

Energy drinks and water each have their own benefits. Whether which would be 'better' depends on the occassion. For outdoor activities, energy drinks may be helpful; otherwise, water would probably be good enough.

Energy drinks contain chemicals, including caffeine and an excess of sugar. Therefore, it is likely that an over-consumption of energy drinks may lead of obesity due to the high sugar content. In addition, some energy drinks include artificial colourings to give it a more attractive appearance, e.g. yellow-coloured energy drinks may contain Tartrazine, which is an artificial food additive which has been linked to hyperactivity in children.

However, energy drinks contains essential minerals such as sodium and so on. It replenishes our energy and also the salts in our body which have been lost through sweating. It also helps us to rehyrate and has thirst quenching effects which may be helpful to those who do outdoor activities.

On the other hand, water is very important in our health. It makes up, on average, 60 percent of our body weight. Every system in our body really depends on water. Lack of water can lead us to dehydration, a certain condition that occurs when we don't have enough water in our body. Instead of drinking energy drinks we have to drink eight glasses of water every day. As they said, eight glasses of water keeps fat away.
