🏋️♂️ Are Energy Drinks Bad for You and Which One Is the Healthiest?
Energy drink is the easiest source of an energy booster. The most beneficial feature of energy drink is that we can feel the increased-energy fast. However, mostly, energy drinks are harmful to our health.
Energy drinks are harmful to our kidney and other organs as well. Also, the more frequent we use energy drink, the more we get addictive to it, which is also not beneficial to us in the long term.
What do you think about it? If any, which one is the healthiest energy drink?
Energy drinks can deliver on some of their promissed benefits by increasing brain functions and helping you function when you are tired or sleep deprived. However there are number of health concerns with energy drinks,particularly caffeine intake ,sugar contest and mixing them with alcohol.
Some people including pregnant, and nursing women, children and teenagers should avoid energy drinks.
One place that I used to work one person used to drink a lot of energy drink. On one occasion this person came to first aid and when the ambulance was about to take him away they said that energy drinks were not good for the heart and a few other organs.
Leno — The benefit seems to be gained at the expense of our long-term health. I agree, these group of people should avoid energy drinks at any cost. How about you Leno? What do you usually consume to reenergize yourself?
Edward — Does drinking too much energy drinks is the cause for his illness? How is he right now?
The side effects outweigh the benefits in the long run. One can become addicted to energy drinks like Red Bull, and many others. I also used to drink them much, but one night I learned my lesson the cruel way because after taking like 3 cans, I went to sleep but, I didn’t brink the eyes the whole night and starting in the morning, a helicopter sound was in my head and almost lost consciousness until I visited a clinic and the doctor gave me medicine to swallow and sleep. I started feeling a bit better after 4 hours when woke up.
Jackson — Have you stopped consuming energy drinks for now? Before that event, were you frequently drink Red Bull?
Ahmaed; I stopped for a while but later resumed because of the urge of addiction. I always feel like I have to take at least one in order to be my real self.
I see. How long have you been consuming energy drink?
Ahmed, it’s close to 10 years. But I’m used to the situation.
That is a very long time. Have you had problem with your kidney or heart during that period?
I love a good sugar free energy drink and consume at least 1 daily. I have a very high caffeine tolerance so am not affected in that way. They do have a lot of benefits for me personally. Like with anything, understand what you are taking and the effect it may have on you and consume in moderation
I personally like taken energy drinks, I never knew it has any adverse effect on the body, Thank you so much for raising this question. I have learnt what I didn’t know before.
I had a colleague ,he used to take energy drinks like red bull.But,one time at night his heart started burning /feeling hot.He was advised to stop energy drinks.
Yes you should not abuse them, just the sae as you wouldnt drink loads of cans of coke or cups of coffee. All these can have different effects on people.
Gareth — * What kind of energy drink that you usually consume? So do I, I drink at least a cup of coffee daily. ** Yes, we have to know the suitable quantity that our body can tolerate.
Kenneth — Have you noticed any health issue while consuming energy drinks? What kind of energy drink that you consume?
Eli — That is the situation that often encountered by many people who consume energy drink. How is he doing right now?
My favourite is Redbull Sugar Free – I have always enjoyed the unique taste of Redbull so without the sugar its an obvious choice for me. I also drink coffee throughout the day
Some people have even experienced hart exhilarations that is not very beneficial to your health as it may result in a hart attack and yes energy drinks are really not good for your kidneys and in particularly no good for your teeth due to the high sugar intake which may also cause diabetes.
Although I myself am guilty to the consumption of energy drinks as I am sure many of you do I can not deny that it is harmful too us as many other things are and energy drinks should be drank as little as possible but surly indulging in a tasty energy drink moderately can’t be that harmful to your health as it does not happen often and your body can recover from the negative affects that the energy drink might pose.
I also do not really believe that their are all too healthy energy drinks available but if I had to guess I think Energade is a more healthier option available out there I am sure pharmacists and health shops could have healthier options available up for discussion with us that may provide a healthier alternative than the more popularly known unhealthy brands of energy drinks.
I think like with everything Shane consumption in moderation is fine. We all have different tolerances to caffeine, gluten, lactose, sugar etc. You jst need to work out what your body likes and what it doesnt.
I don’t think there’s a healthy one, we are always deceived by the makers of drinks so that we keep drinking and for them generating revenue. The side effects are horrible 😥
Shane — Have you ever consume Energade?
Gareth — For people whose body cannot tolerate energy drink, even the smallest dose, they should avoid energy drink at all cost.
Jackson — The advertising is guilty, but the people who recklessly consume it are also to blame. We should decide wisely everything we buy and consume.
There are healthy energy drinks that can help us to boost our energy the problem is like any other things how we use them.
If you moderate your consumption it will help you, and if you take too much it will destroy you.
Before now, I never knew that energy drinks is harmful besides the energy it’s boost. I will drastically reduce my intake of the drink.
The only energy drink I have every day is Red Bull.And lately I have been drinking the sugar free one.I only drink one can of it per day.It is true .People!e should not over consume those.I have tasted Monster but I do not like the taste of it.Also it is advisable to drink a lot of water after consuming these drinks. However these drinks are not going off the market anytime soon.People just need to watch how many of these drinks they consume. Also I will check the net to see what is a healthy energy drink.
Leno — Moderate consumption or no consumption of these energy drinks at all is the best option by now.
Kenneth — A wise decision for you, Kenneth.
Myriam — Please let us know when you have a healthy one if there is any.
I think you have to do your own research as everyone is different and their bodies react differently to the different chemicals ans stimulants.
Gareth — Yes, I will. However, I want to know others opinion and experience regarding that matter. And your answers have been very informative. Thank you, Gareth.
There’s no healthy one and later on healthiest, they are all dangerous. These companies are only driven by profits and nothing else. They don’t care about our health, the way people become addicted to these drinks and suffer the effects.
Energy during is a very nice drink, is good for everyone. It energies someone to be strong and strengthen too
I think energy drink are not bad,if you drink it with moderation.
