Top 5 Energy Sports Drinks

For athletes and sportsmen and women of many disciplines, getting the right amount of fluids, electrolytes, sodium and carbohydrates is essential. Thats why sports drinks have become such an important part of a sports persons kit water is no longer considered enough to replace what the body loses in prolonged, intense physical exercise.

These specialist sports drinks or energy drinks as they are also known – have been developed by scientists specifically for sportsmen and women to quickly replenish the bodys levels of electrolytes and carbohydrates. However, many have now become popular with the general public and are on sale to the consumer in shops and supermarkets across the world.

Heres a quick rundown of five of the most popular sports drinks now being consumed by everyone.


Gets to your thirst, fast! as former England international footballer John Barnes used to tell us on the advert. Lucozade began life as an orange coloured fizzy drink that quickly restored hydration and glucose to the body. Since it hit the general market it has evolved into a much wider range of sports and nutrition products, including Lucozade Sport and Lucozade Energy, all offering different kinds of benefits to the sports person and consumer.

Red Bull

Red Bull gives you wings. Well, no it doesnt, but it is packed with amino acid, carbohydrate, B vitamins, glucose and caffeine. Drinking Red Bull is guaranteed to at the very least wake you up and get you going. It therefore falls into the energy drink category rather than the sports drink category. Red Bull was amongst the first of these type of drinks but there are now many more available.


One of the most popular sports drinks in America and now making appearances in other counties under license, Gatorade is perhaps best known for being dumped over winning coaches in American football and basketball in the US. Although it is available in more countries now, the authentic drink in all its many flavours is generally only available in the States or from specialist online stockists.

Monster Energy

Very similar to Red Bull, Monster Energy drink is targeted at the extreme sports market, rock bands and people who enjoy the extreme lifestyle. In essence though, it is simply a more aggressive alternative to Red Bull! It mixes all natural fruit juice with similar ingredients plus ginseng. Monster!


Powerade is very much like Lucozade and Gatorade in that the isotonic drink is specifically designed to help athletes and sports people stay hydrated and retain sodium and electrolyte levels. It is available in a selection of flavours including Berry and tropical Fruits, Cherry and Orange. Powerade Zero, the latest in the range, contains no calories.

All of these drinks are available in most big stores and, in the case of Gatorade, from online retailers of American food and drinks. Why not check them out, especially if youre an active person yourself!

Train For A 5k Race – Run And Win!

If you want to test your physical shape or if you want to start doing some kind of exercise activity in order to stay fit but you are bored of gyms, then running a 5k race is the best idea for you. Running is easy; it can be done everywhere and is a very cost effective solution. Of course you cannot jump from your couch and start running 5k, no matter how easy it can prove if you follow a plan and program.

People do not find the 5k race intimidating that is why most of the amateur runners prefer this distance. There are also many events that involve a simple 5k race – such as St Patrick’s Day, 4th of July race and so on. If you are looking for some kind of running exercise to keep fit, or if you have to start running because your health issues demand so, then choose the 5k and start training for it, before you are able to run the whole thing at once.

Keep in mind that 5k races, even if they are run for fun without competing, are a very serious physical activity, and can prove really hard if you don’t follow the right way. There is definitely not a fixed recipe for all, as we are all different in terms of physiology and fitness. There are though many comprehensive guides out there, who can teach you how and when to run, based on your personal needs.

A trainer can also do the same and is a very good solution for those who want to start running in professional races. If you just want to do it for fun or fitness, then a training guide should be enough.

Follow the instructions of the guide as much as you can, but try to avoid anything that promises that you will run the 5k like a champion in 5 days, because this is not possible. You can see some good results after 6-8 weeks, which is a normal progress for most of the people, especially those who are not avid exercising persons.

Every training plan is designed following some specific parameters so you have to stick to it; any effort to speed it up or slow it down on your own could have the exact opposite result.

The goal of those programs is not to become a champion within a few weeks, but to be able to become a good runner who can enjoy and benefit from the 5k exercise as much as possible. If you feel like competing, then this is even better, but that is something that will come after being able to run the 5k comfortably for some time, with no fatigue and no injuries.

How To Make Money By Trading In Tennis Matches


This system exploits the fluctuations in price that occur during a tennis match. There are three things which will have a big impact on the price of the two players.

Break points, or even more of an impact from a confirmed break

Winning a set

Any sign of a player being injured and liable to retire

The price fluctuations are to my eyes out of proportion compared to the actual chances of a player eventually winning or losing the game, and this is where the system comes into its own.

The rules of the system are as follows

Only bet in mens games run by the ATP, where there is in-play betting offered by Betfair. These are easy to find just go into the tennis section of the Betfair site, click on the coupons tab, and then click on ‘Today’s in-play tab’).

Only bet in matches where the price of the favourite is between 1.20 and 1.50, if there are many matches in a day that fit the bill then tighten this to 1.30-1.40.You have to be able to put a bet on the underdog when the match goes in-play so make a note of the start time of the match on the ‘Rules’ tab for the match.

CAUTION – Matches quite often do not start at the stated time, they could get delayed by weather or a previous match overrunning, so you have to be flexible enough to be able to check regularly when the match is likely to start. You can get a clue by studying the order of play and live scores via the internet.

Before the start of play you need to check the prices offered by all your active bookmakers by using Betbrain . You select the book offering the best price for the favourite. You then use my trading spreadsheet (free from my website) to calculate your stakes. Enter the odds for the favourite into cell i6, then calculate your required stake for the underdog, by putting odds into cell h6, gradually altering them until the net profit shown in cell k10 is 15% (or just over).

So now you place your bet on the favourite with the chosen book (which could be Betfair, or any other of your active books), this can be done several hours before the match starts. Then when the game goes in-play you place your bet on the underdog at the calculated trading odds.

I am using a progressive staking plan for this systemFurther details can be found on my website Tennis Gambling Systems

Skin Whitening – The Safe and Natural Way

Havelock Ellis said, “Charm which means the power to affect work without employing brute force is indispensable to women. Charm is a womans strength just as strength is a mans charm”. The question now is, how will women be as enchanting as possible? Is it really feasible? My readers, all I can say is skin bleaching.

Skin bleaching is an effective way of skin whitening. What differs is, not only that it lightens up your complexion, skin bleaching also visibly reduces some various skin complications like PIH (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation), melasma (the mask of pregnancy), sun damage, age spots, freckles, etc. Nice to know, is it? So, what different methods are being done in achieving such regimen?

There are over-the-counter products for skin bleaching readily available for the consumers. In the past, most of these products have the active ingredient, hydroquinone but currently, it is being banned by the FDA due to its cancer-causing properties. There are other commercially available products; most of them are applied topically. Creams, lotions and facial masks which contain hauronoside or arbutin (two molecules which are the same with hydroquinone without the risks of skin irritation) are being sold to replace the banned ingredient. Moreover, topical forms of Vitamin C and licorice extract are proven to aid skin bleaching. They are also anti-inflammatory agents and anti-oxidants. But, it is advised to go to a dermatologist for prescription than self-medication.

It is of no doubt that these over-the-counter products are effective. However, they also contain those chemicals that can have some undesirable effects. So, lets look back to Mother Nature. Natural skin bleaching methods are also effective but they can cost you more time. But what harm can it be? Haste makes waste, doesnt it? The most common ingredient used for natural bleachers is lemon juice. It is an effective bleaching agent. It is proven to inhibit the production of melanin pigments (melanocytes) in your body. Here are some quick homemade natural skin-bleaching methods using lemon juice.

Make a paste out of lemon juice and honey. Apply it to the desired area and leave it for 15 minutes. Also, you can use almond instead of honey. Another method is to mix equal parts of lemon juice, sandalwood powder, tomato juice, and cucumber juice. Also, apply it to the desired area and leave it for 15-20 minutes.

Of all skin bleaching methods, the most effective way is to stay fit, eat a regular diet, drink a lot of water, and exercise. As what they say, prevention is better than cure.

Skin whitening creams can be derived from fruits, vegetables, and other products created from animals. All of these are great sources of anti-oxidants with the ingredients that whitens skinskin bleaching. Other skin bleaching methods can actually cause drying and harm.

Ripped Jeans

Ripped jeans are the funkiest type of jeans. Made popular by rock stars in the 1960s, ripped jeans are back in fashion. Today, more and more celebrities are seen sporting the I dont care look with their ripped jeans. Even Britney Spears wore ripped jeans for her rushed-for-the-media Las Vegas wedding.

Ripped jeans are a mark of rebellion. They make the wearer stand out of the crowd and get noticed. Ripped jeans are in high demand among girls and boys alike. To boys, ripped jeans impart a rugged look, while girls wear them because they are simply hip.

Although one might be tempted to rip their jeans on their own, it doesnt give that worn-out look. Also, any normal pair of jeans is too durable to fray and rip on its own in a given period of few years. So it strongly advised to go for the readymade machine-ripped jeans to get that right look. Though one has to pay a few bucks more to buy a pair of ripped jeans than to buy a normal pair, the high price is justified because it costs manufacturers more to make ripped jeans. Brand-new denims have to go through a lot of processing to get that overused look. To impart the faded color around the rips, the denims have to be hand-rubbed with sandpaper. For the peculiar frayed texture they have to be sandblasted. All this leads to an increased cost.

However, to a youngster who wants to make a statement with his attire, ripped jeans are worth every penny. Not only do they look cool, but ripped jeans also go with all kinds of T-shirts as long as they are cool. You dont have to be a rock star to look cool, just buy a pair of ripped jeans and it will do the trick.

What Mistakes Do Commodity Traders Make When Trading

Any kind of trading is a risk, and it is the same for commodity trading as well. It is natural for traders to loose some money when trading in the commodities market. Almost 85-90 percent of those who trade in the commodities market are susceptible to loss at one point of time or the other. There are some more who loose quiet a lot of their investment if their commodity trading strategies are not right. For those who always wanted to enter into the commodity trading market may find these statistics appalling. What needs to be known is that those who have not done well in the commodity trading

Another reason why traders fail is because they do not educate themselves well about the commodity trading This is especially for new traders who think that trading in commodities is easy and educating yourself about it is not necessary. Learning futures margins, ticker symbols and contract sizes are only a chip of the trading block. What every trader needs to know is that since you are competing with several other traders who are well trained and know much more about commodity trading. What traders need to realize is that knowledgeable traders will not make trading easy for you since they make note of all the points, these are essential to make good trading strategies and win good trades. It is therefore essential that traders who are not well educated about the commodity trading market ensure that they gain all the required knowledge to help them move a step ahead.

Another mistake that most traders make is put in a lot of money in a single trade. The secret to being a successful commodity trader is making sure that you dont put in more than 5% of your money in one single trade. For e.g. if you want to begin commodity trading with $20,000 then you need to make sure that you put in no more than $1000 in a single trade. Investing any more is like inviting risk. With only a small percentage in a particular commodity you can be assured that incase there is a loss you will not loose a huge amount.
