Side effects of energy drinks

The bottle of energy drink is a popular way to get the necessary energy when you just do not have time to sleep.Unfortunately, the price for an additional 3 or 4 hours of activity is too high.
Even natural energy drinks harm your body.

What is an energy drink?
Energy drink is a soft drink which - according to the manufacturer - now increases energy levels in the body.
There are several studies that confirm that energy drinks really short time to increase the mental and cognitive abilities, alertness and physical endurance.
The energy in the energy drink is not released as a result of burning calories, but because of the stimulants and vitamins it contains.

What does an energy drink?
Energy drinks typically contain xanthine (including caffeine), carbonated water, taurine, B vitamins and some herbs. The usual ingredients are guarana, yerba mate, acai, gingseng, ginkgo biloba. Sometimes the energy drinks add maltodextrin, inositol, carnitine and creatine.
Some energy drinks contain sugar, while other brands are replaced by sweeteners.
The indispensable ingredient in energy drinks is caffeine (often from guarana or yerba mate). Energy drinks contain three times more caffeine than the car.

Why are energy drinks harmful?
Although you a bottle of energy drink will not hurt seriously, 2-3 bottles a day can cause arrhythmia, insomnia, nausea, nervousness, dehydration and stomach pain.
In the United States because of side effects of taking energy drinks is one of the most common reasons for emergency visits.

First Energy drinks deplete the body's energy supplies
Its empowering effects of energy drinks owe synthetic caffeine, theobromine and theophylline. These stimuli promote the creation of synthetic adrenaline, which increases heart rate and blood circulation.
Blood supply to the brain increases and you begin to feel happier and stronger.
But this extra energy comes from outside, but is drawn from the body. Such a "refreshing" it cost us later: there is even greater fatigue, apathy, and insomnia.
Regular consumption of energy drinks can deplete the adrenal glands and cause disease, which is called adrenal fatigue.

Second Energy drinks are addictive
Like other stimulants, energy drinks are addictive. Many users of these drinks will soon become their hostages and literally depend on them.
Without their daily dose of energy drink person feels upset and irritated.

Third Energy drinks damage the internal organs

Because energy drinks are suffering the most heart and blood vessels, stomach and liver.
Cardiovascular system often responds to "artificial energy" arrhythmia, sudden changes in blood pressure and tachycardia.

The stomach is suffering because of carbon dioxide, which increases the formation of gastric juice and acidity of the stomach, which harms the gastrointestinal tract.

Pleasant flavor, color and flavor energy drink created with the help of chemical substances. Every energy drink has dozens of them. All this chemistry damage our liver.
Because even healthy adults are recommended to be careful with taking energy drinks.
Not to mention, but that energy drinks have no place in the diet of children and adolescents.

Natural energy drinks - better than synthetic?

Many manufacturers of dietary supplements have decided to follow the trend and began producing natural, "healthy" energy drinks.
An example of such energy drinks are Forever Living FAB (contains taurine, guarana, unavoidable aloe vera, glutamine, carnitine, inositol, vitamin B, carbonated water, acidity regulators, natural color, sugar, and xylitol) and Vision IFly (based on guarana, ginseng , yerba mate, rhodiola rosea and Ginkgo biloba, contains glutamine, carnitine, caffeine, fructose and vitamin C).
But - beware! Although natural, such as energy drinks contain large amounts of caffeine and act as stimulants.
That means they release energy stores, which are reserved in our body. After a period of activity and the period of euphoria came the fall of energy and concentration.
Prolonged consumption of energy drinks depletes your body, damages the cardiovascular system and causes premature aging.

Instead of energy drink
If you are tired, but you are not able to sleep, try the following:
light exercise
15 minutes of easy exercise to restore their energy and concentration
Sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes and rest for 15 minutes
yoga, meditation, breathing exercises
this method will certainly give you a good mood and energy
cold shower
This is a proven way to wake up!
fresh air and sunshine
Get outside and walk in the fresh air
food that gives energy
renew your energy level to eat juicy fruits or whole grains
drink a glass of spring or purified ionized water

Long term, consider how to extract more time to sleep.

All the ancient medical traditions of the world talk about the importance of energy balance in the body. This balance depends on our physical and emotional health.
Our body gives us to know what and when to do. If you are tired means that it is time to rest and restore energy supplies.
Taking energy drinks disrupts this natural balance, which can result in long-term problems in mental and physical level.
