Energy Tablets vs. Energy Drinks

Are your eyelids getting heavy? Are you finding it hard to concentrate on the task in front of you? It sounds like you need a boost of energy. But, how should you get it? Two options are energy tablets and energy drinks. Here’s a comparison of the two to help you decide which is best for you:


You never know when you’ll need a boost of energy, but it can be difficult to carry around an energy drink with you wherever you go. Energy drinks need to be refrigerated, so if you don’t have access to a refrigerator, you may be out of luck when you start to get sleepy. But, energy tablets can fit in your pocket or handbag so they’re available whenever you need them.

Long-Term Effects.

Both energy drinks and energy tablets can provide energy, but energy drinks tend to give you a sudden jolt, and then an unpleasant crash afterwards. This crash is caused by the fluctuating levels of caffeine in your system. First, your body will respond to the caffeine by making you feel more alert and awake, but as the caffeine wears off, so does this feeling. In fact, you may be even more tired during this crash than you were in the first place! If you want to avoid the caffeine crash jitters, look for a tablet such as Study Up Energy that slowly releases caffeine into your system instead of giving it to you all at once.


There are many different kinds of energy drinks, but a lot of them have a bitter, unusual taste that you may not like. If you’re not a fan of the taste of energy drinks, try a tasteless energy tablet instead.

Side Effects

Be sure to check the product label on any energy drink you plan on consuming. Many energy drinks are packed full of chemicals such as niacin. This particular chemical has caused a great deal of controversy over the years, mainly because it causes negative side effects such as rapid heart rate, nausea, and dizziness. If you don’t want your energy served with a side of heart palpitations and queasiness, you may want to check out energy tablets that are made with natural ingredients.

Sugar Content

While you’re taking a closer look at the energy drink’s label, be sure to also check out the sugar content. Many energy drinks are full of sugar, and consuming too much sugar can put you at a greater risk of developing serious health conditions such as diabetes and obesity. If you don’t want to drink a can full of sugar, either try an energy tablet or look for a sugar-free version of your favorite energy drink. Read 10 disturbing reasons why sugar is bad for you.
