If you feel a lack of energy, think twice if energy drink is one of the possibilities you are considering. Energy drinks seriously affect your health.
Substances such as caffeine and sugar are not the best solution to get some extra energy. A better option would be to consume a lot of water or walk every day and maintain your energy levels.
Below are the harmful effects caused by energy drinks.
ANXIETY AND STRESS
There are many reasons that will instantly make you never consume energy drinks. Still, maybe the most influential one is the impaired balance of the organism caused by stress and nervousness. Due to high caffeine levels, consumption of energy drinks may result into tachycardia and nervousness.
TOO MUCH SUGAR
Energy drink may create a false impression of increased energy due to the high amount of sugar and caffeine. And high amount does not mean 1 or 2 spoons, this quantity may even reach as much as 15 spoons of sugar. This not only causes excess of glucose, it also makes you feel thirsty, increases your body weight, and it affects your immunity and digestive system.
Drinking energy drinks on regular basis reduces the levels of serotonin in the blood (the so called hormone of happiness), making you feel depressed and cheerless.
Sometimes extra energy is not what you really need, especially not if you want to go to bed soon. The tachycardia and fatigue as a result of consumption of energy drinks prevents you from sleeping. The best way to return your body to a normal level is to consume a lot of water, fruits and vegetables and do a lot of physical exercise. In fact, consumption of healthy food and exercise should be your lifestyle.
