Diet Soda vs Phocus
Soda has become a mainstay in American lives. Most people need pepping up during the day, and soda provides that pep whether it’s full sugar or diet. Many people get used to caffeine drinking regular soda, and later switch to its diet counterpart knowing that it’s just as caffeinated and supposedly healthier.
As drinks are some of the simplest ways to create a dietary change, soda is often swapped for diet soda when on the path to a healthier lifestyle. And that’s good, right? Diet soda delivers a kick of flavor and caffeine without the calories of its regular cousin.
Sure, diet soda is probably better than soda, but that’s just because soda is carbonated sugar-water. But there must be a better option, right?
Imagine a crystal clear caffeinated sparkling water. And what if it came lightly flavored and thoughtfully caffeinated. Well, that image is a reality. Meet Phocus, a delicious, health-conscious, thoughtfully caffeinated sparkling water. Infused with a boost of natural tea caffeine and the balance of L-theanine.
Phocus is designed to give you a perfect, hydrating boost. It includes L-theanine, the amino acid found in tea, to boost the effects of the 75 mg of natural caffeine every serving contains. L-theanine ensures an even release of energy, with no jitters or crashes.
Now think of how you feel an hour after your diet soda.
Diet sodas contain artificial sweeteners like aspartame, cyclamate, saccharin, acesulfame-k or sucralose, or maybe a combination of these. While these don’t contain the calories of sugar, they have other negative side effects. There is evidence that sweeteners cause insulin confusion. This means they can change your blood sugar level drastically. We're all familiar with that post-lunch carb or sugar crash. This isn’t in itself dangerous, unless you count being ratty and unproductive as a danger, but spikes and drops in blood sugar can eventually lead to insulin resistance and even diabetes.
These sweeteners also have repercussions for the brain. They have the potential to rewire the parts of your brain that react to sweet things, essentially numbing them. This means that when it comes time to eat, you’re more likely to reach for more of the not-so-good stuff.
There seems to be little reward when drinking diet sodas.
Generally, doctors advise swapping all sodas with coffee or hot tea to be a caffeine replacement. While hot tea and coffee can stave caffeine headaches, they don't provide the same experience as an ice-cold soda. And once you add steamed milk and flavoring, a coffee can be as sugary and caloric as a full-sugar soda.
So, it’s time to gain some Phocus! This sparkling water with caffeine and flavor is the best-tasting answer to diet-soda woes. Taste the ruby citrus of Grapefruit and the exotic twist of Yuzu Lime. Enjoy the familiar fruitiness of Peach and the tropical tang of Blood Orange. Treat your tastebuds to cool Cucumber or the unaltered simplicity of Natural sparkling water. Still want that familiar Cola flavor of caramel, vanilla, and cinnamon notes? Try Phocus Cola!
In short, there’s nothing bad, so you can Phocus on the good.
