What is Ghost Energy Drink?
This is Ghost Lifestyle Supplements take on what an energy drink ready to drink (RTD) should be. With a solid set of ingredients and incredible flavour collaborations, CSN is excited to stock it!
While it can be used as a study aid/pre-workout this is a smooth energy drink that can be suitable for everyone!
How does it compare to other energy drinks?
The Ghost energy drink is definitely a nootropic/focus-based drink. It hasn’t gone too high in caffeine like Bang and RAZE at 300mg, nor has it included any of the pump and performance ingredients you get in the likes of C4 Ultimate Carbonated.
The formula behind the Ghost energy drink comes with a gram each of acetyl-l-carnitine and taurine, 150mg of Alpha-GPC, and 100mg of the branded focus ingredient NeuroFactor. Caffeine is, of course, also in the beverage in the form of natural caffeine at a moderate 200mg, with the last feature being the absorption enhancing AstraGin at 25mg. CSN has broken these ingredients down on the next tab.
What are the key features?
- Nootropic base energy drink
- 200mg caffeine
- Fantastic flavour collaborations
Each can of Ghost Energy is in at the standard size of 473ml. As well as the ingredients mentioned below there is also a decent amount of vitamins, including vitamin C, niacin, vitamin B1, folate, vitamin B6, biotin, vitamin B12, and pantothenic acid.
Without further ado, here’s what one can of Ghost Energy contains:
The first primary ingredient in Ghost Energy is 1000mg of acetyl-L-carnitine (ALCAR). L-carnitine is most well known for its role in fatty acid metabolism. In order for the free fatty acids to become oxidized within the mitochondria to produce energy in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), they need some assistance. L-carnitine serves as a fatty acid transporter and is crucial for beta-oxidation and creating energy from fats. However, it is added in this energy drink because ALCAR crosses the blood-brain barrier and contains an acetyl group it can increase the production of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is crucial for cell-to-cell communication, relaying messages between the neurons, and has the potential to boost the mind-to-muscle connection.
Studies show that taurine supplementation may improve insulin sensitivity, muscle force production, muscular endurance, glycogen re-synthesis, recovery, and time to exhaustion.
caffeine is extremely effective as boosting physical and mental energy,[8-10] which is exactly what Ghost Energy was designed to do. The reason they have used natural caffeine is to give a smoother more steadily stimulant increase and avoid any unwanted jitters etc...
Alpha-GPC is readily absorbed by the body and is highly bioavailable. It serves as a precursor to acetylcholine – a neurotransmitter that is responsible for a wide range of physiological functions, from memory to muscle contractions, it’s extremely important. Alpha-GPC is most well known for it’s cholinergic effects and cognitive boosting. It partners with alcar perfectly!
NeuroFactor is a trademarked ingredient that is known for its ability to boost mental energy, cognition, and focus. But also enhancing levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in the brain! This is good because BDNF plays a crucial role in energy balance and has been associated with improved learning capability, mood, and memory.
