With today’s fast-paced world, the average person does not receive an adequate amount of sleep or nutrients, all of which nourishes the body; as an outcome, many are left feeling tired and rundown. In order to gain vitality, the proper solution would be to go to bed earlier and eat more fruits and vegetables, but in reality many succumb to a more convenient alternative in the form of an aluminum can.
When feeling tired, many turn to energy drinks to help get through the day. These drinks are marketed to provide a quick burst of energy. What the companies of these products do not promote are the harmful effects to the physical, mental, and emotional health to the consumer.
Side effects include:
Common ingredients found in most energy drinks are: caffeine, sugar, guarana, and taurine. Individually, these additives may not be harmful, but when combined with high doses of caffeine, serious complications may occur.
Be aware next time you think about picking up an energy drink. It may indeed provide a quick energy boost, but potential risks to your health may ensue.
