Is There a Healthier Alternative to Rockstar Energy Drinks?
AXIO and AXIO Decaf IS THE ANSWER!
AXIO ® and AXIO Decaf ® by LifeVantage ® take a whole new approach to energy.
The problem is that energy drinks such as Rockstar are high carb and loaded with sugar and the results don’t last. It helps for a short-lived time, but then the crash happens, and you must reach for them yet again. We are then caught up in a vicious, addictive and unhealthy cycle reaching for these energy drinks again and again throughout the day. The good news is that now you can reach for an AXIO ® or an AXIO Decaf ® drink instead.
What is AXIO ® and AXIO Decaf ®?
Engineered with Nrf2 to not only give energy to your body but especially to give energy to your mind. Nrf2 is a powerful protein that regulates antioxidant proteins in order to protect against oxidative damage in our bodies. Imagine greater concentration, mental clarity, and focus without the crash or jitters.
WHY IS AXIO ® and AXIO Decaf ® by LifeVantage ® A BETTER CHOICE THAN ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINKS?
CALORIES AND CARBS:
AXIO ® has only 10 calories per a 12-16 ounce serving and 2 grams of carbohydrates and no sodium. AXIO Decaf has 15 calories per serving, 3 grams of carbohydrates, and no sodium. In comparison, an 8-fluid ounce, which is one serving, can of Rockstar Energy Drink has 140 calories, 31 grams of carbohydrates, and 40 mg of sodium. The most popular size of Rockstar Energy Drink is the 16-fluid ounce, doubling all of these numbers adding up to 280 calories, 62 grams of carbohydrates, and 80 mg of sodium. Most consumers are reaching for the 16-fluid ounce can which doubles the calories and carbs or even the also popular 24-fluid ounce can which triples the servings instead of the smaller 8-fluid ounce can.
While AXIO ® and AXIO Decaf have no sugar, Rockstar Energy Drink contains a lot of sugar, which increases the calorie count, for example, a 16-ounce can of Rockstar contains 280 calories and 62 grams of sugar.
ROCKSTAR’S “ENERGY BOOST” COMES FROM…ingredients that have been verified regularly to accelerate your heart rate such as caffeine, sugar, herbs, and vitamins. These ingredients include:

ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK SIDE EFFECTS:
Raised Heart Rate:
You may not notice an increase in heart rate after drinking just a serving of Rockstar Energy Drink but drinking multiple servings a day with the resulting tachycardia may lead to dizziness, shortness of breath and, in extreme cases even cardiac arrest.
Increased Blood Pressure:
Studies note an increase in blood pressure in the participants after they drank energy drinks. If you have high blood pressure, dietitians suggest you not drink beverages such as Rockstar Energy Drink. Aggravating your blood pressure may cause further damage to your heart and arteries and increase your risk of a heart attack or stroke.
The majority of Rockstar’s more than 20 flavors are a source of non-nutritive calories. Drinks like Rockstar may further increase calorie intake and lead to weight gain. The sugar is raising your blood glucose levels, causing your pancreas to release insulin. Also, choosing this drink causes fat to store around your middle.
Strain on Your Body:
The strain on your heart, blood vessels, and kidneys increase your chances of cardiovascular and renal conditions. Another major side effect of Rockstar energy drink is severe liver problems.
Various Herbal Supplements Can Have Side Effects:
Various herbal supplements involved in the Rockstar energy drink can have varying side effects. These herbal supplements consist of alkaloids and cause severe fatigue and shortness of breath. The high content of Siberian ginseng and Guarana seed extract in Rockstar can also cause jitteriness.
AXIO ® and AXIO Decaf ® SIDE EFFECTS:
The company lists no known side effects but contains a warning regarding persons under 18 years of age and to pregnant or nursing women or persons sensitive to caffeine. Some persons may have an allergic reaction to the ingredients and it is recommended to stop use if reactions occur. Also, they list a note regarding what the FDA recommends regarding caffeine, which is found in AXIO ®.
