With busy schedules and long to-do lists, many of us rely on caffeine as a source of energy. Whether it’s a cup of coffee to kick-start our morning or an energy drink to help us power through an afternoon slump, we — an estimated 90% of adults across the globe — have become accustomed to a caffeine-filled daily routine. And while not all caffeine drinks are bad, they’re certainly not all created equal! However, for all you coffee lovers, the good news is that as awareness of health and wellness has increased, the demand for cleaner and more natural sources of caffeine has surged. In fact, clean caffeine drinks are anticipated to be a top 2024 wellness trend, meaning you can expect to see a rise in new and innovative options that not only provide a (natural) caffeine boost, but also offer additional health benefits.
