Don't know is it true a not so Alice and I decide to try it, we bought one can each as there is a promotion of buying two cans in a cheaper price. I did some research about it too, research has shown that children who consume two or more cans of energy drinks a day may become irritable and anxious. So what is Naughty G all about? Read on to know more.
Naughty G is the first of its kind in the world. It is produced in Austria and the drink has only premium ingredients to ensure that it is of the highest quality. It is a non-alcoholic beverage. Naughty G has a great unique taste that is smooth to drink.There are amazingly 4 flavours for you to choose from:With a name like Naughty G and an ingredient called horny goat weed, the latest energy drink available on shelves here could easily be Austin Powers' beverage of choice. Comedian Mike Myers' libidinous secret agent from the movie trilogy will surely approve of its raunchy advertisement posters in MRT stations. One features a man about to tear off a woman's tank top and another shows a woman's hands over a man's naked torso. But the drink's local distributor, which is from Austria, and also called Naughty G, insists that it is not an aphrodisiac.
- Sugar Free
- Green Tea
- ColaAlthough some of Naughty G's ingredients have aphrodisiacal properties, it is an energy drink and also a supplement that claims to boost vitality and improve the body's performance.Naughty G has 5 active ingredients:
- Horny Goat Weed (a natural herb found in Asia and the Mediterranean region)
- “Miracle Molecule” L-Arginine
- Ginkgo Biloba
- Korean Ginseng
- Tribulus Terrestri
Imported here from Austria since July, the drink boasts a potent-sounding concoction made up of horny goat weed, Korean ginseng, ginkgo biloba, tribulus terrestris, and a mysterious 'miracle molecule' L-Arginine, which claims to boost energy, stamina and performance. Mr Khoo Eng Lim, director of the School of the Humanities and Alternative Medicine, dismisses the ingredients as gimmicks.
Popular energy drinks here such as Red Bull and Shark contain only caffeine, sucrose or sugar and taurine, an amino acid that supposedly helps to improve athletic performance. He said while ginseng, ginkgo and horny goat weed were generally believed to increase mental alertness and boost energy, each ingredient comprises only 0.08 per cent of the drink.
'The distributors probably decided to hype it up so that people would buy it,' he said.
He has no idea what the remaining two ingredients, tribulus terrestris and L-Arginine, are and how they boost energy. Award-winning health website Mayoclinic.com says L-Arginine is an amino acid that supplements protein in the body. It is also used to treat erectile dysfunction as well as chest pains and clogged arteries. The website also claims that horny goat weed is known to possess aphrodisiacal properties.
Like Red Bull and Shark, Naughty G comes with a caution to drink no more than two cans a day. It also advises children, pregnant or lactating women, and those who have suffered from heart problems to abstain from the drink.Mr Khoo said that energy drinks usually boost blood circulation and speed up heart rates, which is not advisable for people with heart problems. Dr Stanley Liew, an endocrinologist at Raffles Hospital, said pregnant women should stay away from energy drinks because they could result in raised blood sugar levels that might lead to problems for the mother and baby. He said the claims of energy drinks that promise performance-enhancing effects are unproven. He added that energy drinks, which are high in caffeine and sugar, can cause insomnia, heart palpitations, nervousness and an elevation in blood pressure.
As for the mix of ingredients in Naughty G, he said: 'There is no robust scientific evidence to indicate that the ingredients are effective.'
The drink, which comes in four flavours - Original, Cola, Green Tea and Sugar- free, had no discernible effect on this reporter who does not drink coffee or tea.
Its recommended retail price is $3.10 and is available at major supermarkets, convenience stores, pharmacies and various restaurants and nightclubs. Close to 50,000 cans have been sold here since its launch in July. (Singapore)Visit their official website here: Naughtygdrink.com
