Best Energy Drink for Programmers

pro·gram·mer (n) An organism capable of converting caffeine into code.” by Urban Dictionary

If you’ve been following me on twitter you might know by now that I’m a monster fan…

There’s nothing like the ability to drink a can of liquid and instantly feel jolted back to life. One thing that I knew is I couldn’t drink more than 3 within 24 hours or my internal operating system would return -1 and shut down. So I had my daily drink counts tagged on posit notes on my desk. Not going to lie, I’ve had a few uh-oh moments where heart was pumping a little too fast or feeling dizzy when I shouldn’t.

My solution to this problem? I finally ditched monster for an organic energy drink called RUNA®.








I was skeptical at first but after learning the story on how this company was formed, how it operates, and trying the energy drinks I feel even better supporting it.

So what’s inside the RUNA energy drinks? A super leaf called guayusa…

I use the RUNA® clean energy drink every day to help me stay focused while working on my apps. When I was depending on monster energy drinks I always had to have another one to recharge and then become flat lined when I needed the energy the most. RUNA® energy drinks is helping me stay busy on what needs to be done at hand. The best part is this energy drink has 0 calories, 0 sugar, and 0 sodium. It has Vitamin C and some Iron in it but as for the rest is all guayusa plant.

I’m just excited to share this with you as I’ve always wanted to find a healthier alternative to monsters and now I found it. Hopefully it’ll be yours too.

I prefer the blood orange flavor. At first the taste is a bit strong but you’ll get used to it and ignore it after experiencing the amazing results. For a monster user of 2-3 cans a day I need 2 cans of RUNA® energy to keep me energized for the whole day coding. Only 1 if I’m moving around and doing errands.

I hope this helps someone who has an urge to find something healthier. Cheers!
