Choose the right kind of sugar.

Look for drinks that have sugars such as brown rice syrup or maltodextrin, Shawn Talbott, nutritional biochemist, told the Los Angeles Times. These sugars don’t hit the bloodstream as quickly as others, like glucose, meaning you won’t receive your caffeine jolt all at once. It should help to reduce jitters and prevent you from crashing once the caffeine wears off, according to The Kind Life.

The slower the rate of absorption is, the better the drink is for you. Although, many experts still recommend sipping other more nutritious beverages instead. “It is not a healthy approach — but it is a healthier one. What people are looking for is a little pick-me-up through the day, and sometimes the best thing is an actual cup of coffee or tea,” Talbott told the Los Angeles Times.
