Energy Drink Health Information

Red Bull Energy Drink Original 835-hour Energy® - Pomegranate - LIVING ESSENTIALS - GNCRockstar® Energy Drink - ROCKSTAR - GNC
There is a lot of chatter about energy drinks ink the news recently, largely due to a new study funded by the National Institute of Health mentioning negative health impacts of energy drinks on children. By all means,  energy drinks deserve some news, as they are the fastest growing beverage market in the US with expected sales of $9 billion for the US in 2011. It seems that money and time have always been tight, but now more than anything, we lack the energy to do what we need to do. Anyway, if we are drinking so many energy drinks, we should know something about them.

Top energy drink facts:
  1. Energy drinks are sold to provide increased energy levels to help keep you active and alert
  2. The main active ingredient in energy drinks is caffeine
  3. Energy drinks contain high or even unregulated amounts of caffeine
  4. Some ingredients, like Guarana contain caffeine that is not claimed on the label
  5. Guarana can provide a slow release of caffeine over time due to other plant botanicals
  6. Many energy drinks also contain large amounts of sugar
  7. Energy drinks also contain other herbal stimulants
  8. It is not just the US, energy drinks are sold in over 140 countries

Caffeine amount (mg) in select beverages

  • 35 mg - 12 oz Coca Cola
  • 54 mg - 8 oz brewed tea
  • 55 mg - 12 oz Mountain Dew
  • 69 mg  - 12 oz Diet Pepsi Max
  • 80 mg - Can of Red Bull
  • 100 mg - 8 oz cup of brewed coffee
  • 140 mg - Can or Rock Star Juiced
  • 160 mg - 5 Hour Energy
Watch outs for kids.
  • About 50% of energy drinks are consumed by adolescents or young adults
  • 46% of the over 5,000+ caffeine overdoses in the US in 2007 occurred in those 19 years of age or younger. 
  • There is no need for children to consume energy drinks
  • Any children with medical or taking medications should never consumer energy drinks

Top healthy ways to boost your energy naturally
  1. Get enough sleep
  2. Control stress in your life to healthy levels
  3. Don't spike your blood sugar (eat low glycemic index foods), rather than foods with processed sugars
  4. Eat small meals frequently (don't get starved, don't get stuffed)
  5. Take a power nap (not a good idea while you are on the job)
  6. Exercise regularly
  7. Take a quick walk outside to get some fresh air and get the blood circulating
  8. Yawning and laughing are great ways to increase oxygen levels
  9. Stay hydrated (drink plenty of water, drink a glass of water between sodas)
  10. Live a purposeful life

Hello, I appreciate your writing. Id like to add. Energy shot creators are not needed to reveal their items' stimulant substance, in spite of the fact that a gathering of researchers has appealed to the FDA to oblige that this data be recorded on marks. Merry Christmas!

Thank you so much for this post on “Energy Drink Health Information”. I don’t think we should drink these energy drinks regularly. It can be harmful for the body. But if you drink Green energy drinks then it is quite beneficial as these are 100% organic.

Australia's public health care system strives to ensure that every citizen has access to quality medical services. Although Medicare guarantees every Australian will see a health care practitioner even when no private health plan is in place, waiting times for certain procedures, including elective surgery, can be extremely long.
