Syzmo is the first energy drink to be certified 100% organic. The drink contains no artificial colors and flavors, and contains no preservatives. It is sweetened with organic blue agave nectar. (We’ve featured agave nectar in a previous post.) The nectar is composed of 90% fructose sugars and 10% glucose sugars. Because fructose is 42% sweeter to the human brain than granulated sugar, less is needed to achieve the same level of sweetness. Fructose is also a great deal easier to digest and use by your body than standard refined sucrose.
The energy-enhancing ingredients of the drink include guarana, yerba mate and caffeine (naturally derived from coffee). The Syzmo web site has an interesting comparison between their drink and other leading energy drinks.
Syzmo can found at Wholes Foods, Exxon, and few other stores. It can also be ordered online from Amazon.
