Here Is What Energy Drinks Are Actually Doing To Your Body

Going through so many health websites including mine you can find a lot of articles advising you to reduce or completely stop drinking coca-cola drinks because they don't just make you fat and cause your heart problems as you grow older, but because it can also increase your risk of cancer

Well, your energy drinks are not left out too, it turns out that taking those energy boosters can affect your health. Now, don't roll your eyes in frustration because suicide rates have gone up this year due to poor health lifestyles which is one reason why you should take any health information you come across seriously. 

After reviewing the current studies surrounding the risks tied to energy drinks (everything has risks right?), researchers concluded they might be associated with a wide-range of health problems. 

According to study author Josiemer Mattei, Ph.D., the sweet stuff in energy which are made up of a high amount of added sugar, high-fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners is what is messing with you and increasing your risk of diabetes, tooth decay, and kidney damage. 

The amount of sugar in a 17 ounce can contain about 54g of sugar which is way higher than the recommended 36g per day for men and we all know what happens when you give your body more than what it can handle, it simply breaks down. 

When you consume too much sugar, your body will eventually require more and more insulin to help glucose enter your cells. This insulin resistance can eventually lead to type 2 diabetes. Not just that, high blood sugar levels can damage your nerves and blood vessels over time (so if you aren't seeing it now, just wait till you get older). This can set the stage for heart disease and kidney problems.

How It Affects Your Weight? 

I always recommend my readers trying to lose weight to make water and fruit juices their no.1 beverage and nothing else. That's because sweetened drinks although very salivating can really mess up your weight and make you gain more pounds that you can ever hope to lose. 

According to a Korean study depending on energy drinks can affect your moods and cause you sleep problems, increase stress and depression. Faced with the fact that the suicide rates of Nigeria just went up (meaning more people are committing suicide than ever before due to depression, frustration and stress), you might want to drop those drink to avoid any stories that touch. 

In long-term, the health risks of taking energy drinks or even coca-cola drinks outweighs the short-term benefits which might be a boost in energy or just to quench your thirst. It's time to set your priorities straight. Will you keep taking these drinks that will affect your health negatively as you grow older or will you stick to the best drink ever (water) and stay healthy.

So there you have it.
