DO YOU TAKE ENERGY DRINKS TOO? READ THIS


Sometimes I need that little push like I posted earlier, smething that only energy drinks can give me so, I'm guilty too. Just yesterday, I needed a can of monster energy to help me complete the task for the day without giving up and I always knew behind my head that something cannot be this
good without side effects. It's not only athletes, wrestlers, footballers,or field track runners that need these energy boosting drinks sha. I always felt like all busy moms need energy drinks in the refrigerators because sometimes it's hard.
Energy drinks do have health consequences which have been revealed in a new scientific study...
Researches found that all energy drinks are loaded with caffeine and sugar, which can cause vessels to contract and lead to stroke.

Downing one-and-a-half large cans of energy drink almost halves blood flow in young adults, a study suggests.

Researchers found the beverages – laden with caffeine and sugar, and popular with children – may lead to vessels contracting.

The narrowing of certain arteries over time can lead to a stroke.

In the small study, 44 non-smoking students in their 20s had blood vessels tested before and 90 minutes after consuming one-and-a-half 500ml cans of energy drink.

At first, vessel dilation was 5.1% in diameter on average. It fell to 2.8% when measured the second time.

Lead researcher Dr John Higgins, of the University of Texas Health Science Centre in Houston in the US, said this suggested “acute impairment in vascular function”.

Makers say the drinks have been confirmed as safe by authorities around the world. In a victory for the Mirror’s Can It! campaign, in June the Government announced proposals to ban the sale of energy drinks to children.




The drinks have previously been linked to health problems associated with the heart. Caffeine can cause blood vessel walls to contract.

The drinks can contain 160mg of caffeine, despite 105mg being the safe daily limit for 11-year-o
lds.
