Energy drinks have taken the meaning of hydration to a whole new level. The common ingredients usually include sugar, caffeine or guarana, amino acids and herbal supplements. They have also added stimulants that may potentially cause harm to the body.
Consuming too much caffeine can be extremely dangerous. It can lead to insomnia, headaches, anxiety, restlessness, nervousness, nausea and irritability. Even worse, it has the potential to cause chest pain, increase blood pressure, heart palpitations, dizziness and gastrointestinal upset.
It’s important to read the labels on these products. Choosing to ignore the ingredients may result in extreme danger.
