Why Switch to Caffeine-Free Drinks?
When people need help getting a wake-up or focusing, many reach for a coffee or soda to kick-start the day. The FDA states that the average daily amount of caffeine consumed in the US is around 300 mg per person, which is equal to 2-4 cups of coffee. While this is considered to be a moderate intake of caffeine that may offer health benefits, some studies suggest otherwise, even that less caffeine than this in a day may negatively impact your health. Caffeine acts as a natural stimulant, but many forget that it is technically a psychoactive drug that crosses the blood-brain barrier to stimulate your central nervous system. Too much can cause symptoms like insomnia, irritability, upset stomach and even muscle tremors. Drinking sodas like Squirt Citrus Soda is a great way to feel refreshed without worrying about caffeine.
Are There Benefits to Drinking Citrus Soft Drinks?
There's been plenty of coverage about the downsides of soda consumption, but before you ban the soft drinks, you may be pleased to hear that new research suggests that certain citrus-flavored sodas could potentially help prevent kidney stones. These sodas contain high amounts of citrate, a compound known to help inhibit the development of calcium oxalate stones, which are the most common type of kidney stone.
