Before you grab a Redbull or Sting or any other so-called ‘energy drink’, you must be aware of how these drinks affect your body. You’ve probably heard that these drinks have negative effects of the body, yet the global market of energy drinks continues to grow and is expected to reach $72 billion by 2024. This is great news for the producers of these drinks, but what are the consumers getting?
The main source of energy in ‘energy drinks’ is caffeine. Extra caffeine doesn’t get stored in the body. It’s processed in the liver and exits through urine. This is why you might have an increase in urination shortly after having caffeine. This means it has a dehydrating effect on the body. According to experts, caffeine should not be consumed more than 400 mg in one day, but there is no binding regulation on manufacturers to mention caffeine quantity on food products.
Caffeine also increases heart rate. According to a study published in the Canadian Journal of Cardiology, increasingly growing heart problems after consuming energy drinks have been found among adults. It was also found that young people with existing but undiscovered heart conditions suffered problems due to energy drinks. There have been incidents where energy drinks caused accelerated heart rate in youth with healthy hearts. This effect of caffeine is exacerbated in children.
Energy drinks include citric acid that is very harmful to the teeth. These drinks are more acidic than sports drinks and are far more detrimental to dental enamel. Once the enamel erodes it is lost forever, and dental sensitivity and other problems originate.
‘Energy Drinks’ is a misnomer because the fact is that they do not provide any actual energy. Real energy comes from sugar, but it does not last long. The demerits of sugar are common knowledge now. There are approximately 13 spoons of sugar in an energy drink. That’s 6 spoons more than the World Health Organization’s recommended intake. Over time, energy drinks cause increase in obesity, heart disease and blood pressure.
Energy drinks agitate the nervous system, which cons the body into feeling that new energy has come to the body and mind. This can cause headaches, insomnia, stress and unstable attitude, and thus affect the mind’s decision-making ability.
