Energy Drinks: Cause and Effect
I’m a big fan of Red Bull and Monster, and though I don’t drink them every day, I have been drinking them more and more recently. That being said, I have noticed a few things:
1) When taking anti-depressants, Energy Drinks cause your mental state to diminish, making negative thoughts more prevalent.
2) They make your heart race.
3) If you drink too many of them, it can cause Renal Failure, which is the loss of function in the kidneys.
4) They make you want to poop, similar to the effect that coffee has.
5) They cause your body to crash after the initial 3-4 hour period of energy they provide, making you drowsy, and causing a depressive state.
6) They provide a significant boost of energy, however certain energy drinks are much easier to take than others, hence why I only like Monster and Red Bull.
7) The extensive amount of sugar and bubbles make you gassy and sometimes make you nauseated.
I love Energy Drinks, but there is a limit on how much we can put in or bodies, not only per day, but in general. I’ve had bad experiences with some, like 5-hour energy, which made me uncomfortably energetic to the point I could not sit still for a minute.
There are ones I haven’t tried, like Venom, or Raptor, but I think I’m just going to stick with my Monster and Red Bull. And out of those two? I pick Red Bull as it provides a more calm energy boost, not like Monster, which is very in your face and bold in flavor as well.
When all is said and done, though they provide energy, and I enjoy them, they are not healthy either, so I will enjoy them RESPONSIBLY, and not try to over-do it, like Peter Griffin in one of the more recent Family Guy episodes.
