The drinks that you are dependent on for gaining energy are just not worth it. Recently it was found that Energy drinks contain an ingredient extracted from bull semen and urine, as revealed through a study conducted by Longhorn Cattle Company (LCC). You’re smart enough to know what Red Bull means now! Not just that, but other drinks of the same kind also contain an ingredient known as Taurin. That’s only one thing to put the drink aside. Check out some other reasons to understand why you should not drink it!
1. Level of Caffeine
A research found that energy drink has more caffeine than 4 soft drinks! You should not, in any case, substitute it with your morning tea or coffee!
2. Sugar level
Okay, so let me guess, you might think of drinking an energy drink after your work out. DON’T DO IT! One energy drink contains around 12 teaspoons of sugar. So what the hell you’ve been working out for??!!
3. Mental health
Energy drinks can also play with your emotions. Mood swings, depression or feeling blue are some things that a regular energy drinker complained of!
4. You turn to energy drinks to keep you awake!
Taking help of energy drink to stay up in night so that you can complete you work, can lead to horrendous results later. Ultimately, you’ll start losing sleep and you might become a victim of insomnia.
5. The ingredients can kill you!
There have been cases in the past where people were killed just by drinking energy drinks. This may sound crazy, but a guy suffered a cardiac arrest after a couple of energy drinks he had. It’s your time to be safe and let it go!
