In fact, energy drinks are nothing more than soft drinks with the addition of B vitamins and high caffeine content. An average energy drink actually has a higher refined sugar content than regular carbonated water, so most energy drink addicts can experience the shock that inevitably follows the initial short-term manic cocktail. And keep an eye on the buyers, because this is not our only concern.
- Main ingredients prohibited by the NCAA:
It is well known that snac products are associated with increased resistance and better aerobic performance. As a result, large amounts of caffeine, guarana, and taurine can lead to the failure of the NCAA drug test. Well, an athlete very rarely gives a positive result for too much caffeine, but is he willing to take the risk?
- Caffeine is a drug:
And, like other medicines, it can cause overdose and withdrawal. As defined by the World Health Organization, caffeine toxicity can include some highly undesirable symptoms, such as anxiety, insomnia, nausea / vomiting, heart palpitations, and even death. Withdrawal symptoms can cause severe headaches, depression, muscle pain, and decreased cognitive function. I think this picture says it all:
Hmm, a mix of energy drinks that are sold as white powder, packaged in a bottle and equipped with mirrors and credit cards to “cut” the product. And this is called Blow. At least he’s not as impudent as the cocaine energy drink banned on the market in 2007 …?
- Energy drinks do not mix with alcohol:
Contrary to popular belief, Red Bull Vodka is not an ideal party drink, but a terrible idea. Mixing stimulants with depressants not only confuses your body, but can also lead to very reckless decisions. Studies have shown that, compared to vodka alone, the combination of Red Bull and vodka reduces perception of deterioration.
Similar studies have shown that people who drink energy drinks mixed with alcohol have a higher risk of sexual abuse, bodily harm and driving with someone under the influence of alcohol. This is not like a recipe for a fun night.
