Hartwall’s ED energy drink was launched in 2003 and was embraced by Finns. ED is Finland’s bestselling energy drink in terms of volume. ED has since been rounded out with two variants: ED Lemon Light and the cranberry flavoured ED Redberry.
There’s plenty to choose from in terms of packages, too. ED is the only energy drink to be sold in both 0.5 litre recyclable plastic bottles and 0.44 litre cans.
ED energy drinks perk you up both physically and mentally. They give you a much needed energy boost, keeping you alert. ED contains all the active ingredients you’ll typically find in energy drinks: caffeine, taurine, guarana and five vitamin Bs. Caffeine is well known for its stimulant effects – enjoyed in an energy drink instead of coffee, it won’t upset your stomach. Guarana raises your alertness and prevents fatigue. Taurine is an amino acid that occurs naturally in the human body and plays a major role as a neurotransmitter in the brain. Taurine production in the body slows down significantly when one is under stress. Vitamin Bs affect the metabolism and the nervous system.
