Don't Drink Another Energy Drink Until You Read This.
Stop the press. Hold the phone. Put your can down.
We're not going to lie here, energy drinks are delicious.
These sweet, tasty fuel-in-a-can are an occasional treat for some, and a daily staple for others.
Certainly more refreshing than a piping hot cup of joe, and let's be honest here, a can of Monster just looks pretty damn cool.
But surely there has to be a better, more healthy alternative, right!?
We've all seen and heard the hype over Green Tea's health benefits, but for most of us, it just doesn't tickle our fancy.
AND you have to drink a TONNE of it to obtain these mystical benefits.
Fortunately, Tribeca's X50 Green Tea Energy Drink is here to save the day.
Check out our Top 5 Reasons to ditch your Red Bull for a healthier, natural alternative today!
1. The Power of 20 Cups of Green Tea
Could you imagine drinking 20 cups of green tea a day, every day?
Assuming you're making an average cup of tea, that's 4 litres of green tea.
Chinese and Indian doctors have known the score for years. Using green tea as a powerful natural alternative to pharmaceutical drugs, doctors would recommend their patients drink large volumes of green tea to boost their immune system, detoxify their liver and kidneys, remove visceral and subcutaneous fat; while boosting energy and lowering blood pressure.
Sounds too good to be true, right?!
What most don't know is, you'd have to drink at least 10 cups of Green Tea per day for these benefits to become apparent.
Thankfully, X50 Green Tea Energy Drink contains the polyphenols and catechins - Green Tea's powerful antioxidants which carry these amazing health benefits, - equivalent to 20 cups worth.
This means that you can harness the equivalent of 4 litres worth of Green Tea every day, in an all natural, fruity, convenient and delicious drink on the go.
2. L-Theanine - Caffeine's Perfect Partner
In case you've never read a nutritional label in your life, a standard energy drink is packed full of ingredients to "compliment" and "enhance" the energy provided by 80mg-150mg of caffeine per can.
The usual culprits are Guarana, Taurine, Ginseng, B Vitamins...
But they're all missing the one thing that Green Tea lacks; L-Theanine.
L-Theanine is an amino acid found naturally in green tea, which synergises perfectly with it's lower caffeine content (Around 25mg-30mg per serve) to deliver clean, focused energy.
See, L-Theanine isn't another ingredient in an energy drink stimulant cocktail, it's actually a calmative.
It stimulates the brain's GABA receptors, producing alpha brain waves, which are often produced through focus and meditation, for clarity and creativity.
The combination of Caffeine and L-Theanine is the perfect, clean energy rush.
Say goodbye to "caffeine jitters" of one too many cups of coffee and hello to a more empowered, focused mind!

3. Burns Fat, Doesn't Make You Fat
The average 250ml energy drink contains about 7 tea-spoons of sugar.
The average sports hydration drink contains about 13.
Sure, it's going to give you a tonne of energy by providing fast absorbing carbohydrates, but it's going to hamper your body composition goals, and you'll get punched in the face with a sugar crash before long.
Fun fact: If Phosphoric Acid wasn't added to Coca Cola, your body would immediately vomit after consumption due to its ridiculously high sugar content. True story.
Green Tea X50 on the other hand, uses powerful antioxidants which have been proven by research to stimulate the body's metabolic function and increase the burning of body fat (study), promoting thermogenesis (fat burning).
This means your body is literally burnings its stored fat and converting it into fuel.
So would you rather pack your body full of sugar for a quick rush and rebound blubber around the middle, or increase your metabolism to burn up to an extra 200 calories a day? 😉
4. Au Naturel
Sweetened, flavoured and coloured naturally to energise you naturally.
X50 Green Tea's organic formula is perfect for vegans and vegetarians alike.
Not only does X50 Green Tea contain more than 600mg of fat burning antioxidants, it also contains resveratrol, the powerful antioxidant found in berries and grapes.
(Remember all those times that red wine drinkers played the antioxidant line? X50 Green Tea contains the equivalent of 25 glasses worth!)
This awesome antioxidant fights free radicals and improves insulin resistance, making it the perfect blood sugar management catalyst, as well as weight loss assistant.
Research also suggests that resveratrol helps to support a healthy cardiovascular system and protects blood cells against oxidative damage, also known as the "ageing" process". - Could green tea be the fountain of youth we've been searching for?!
5. Affordability Meets Convenience
The cost of a cup of coffee a day or energy drink here and there adds up. Fast.
If you're drinking anywhere between 1-3 cups of coffee or energy drinks per day, you're looking at spending well over $100 per month.
Plus when you add up the time of pulling over to the servo to grab a Red Bull on the way to work, or lining up to order a skinny cappuccino, all of a sudden your daily caffeine hit becomes an incredibly expensive and inconvenient chore.
With 60 Serves of X50 Green Tea Energy Drink available for just under $50, this is less than $1 per drink!
Plus with the added convenience of sachets for on the go, plus the ability to mix with hot or cold water, your daily energy hit just got a whole lot more healthy, convenient and delicious.
