Different producers produce different energy drinks and claim that these drinks can give an instant energy to the people. However, most people remain confused that do all the energy drinks are good for their health or not? Do these drinks can help them in reducing their weight? And do these types of drinks have any kind of energy formula that the companies usually claim?
Some nutrition experts give awareness about the reality of these drinks. They say that most such sort of drinks actually are medical blends of carbonated water laden with gut-fattening high fructose corn syrup, caffeine, the amino acid taurine, and a few haphazard vitamins B. Vitamins are poured into them just to show that these mixtures are healthy.
Let’s begin with knowing about syrup of fructose corn; it is much more dangerous for your health than the basic old refined sugar because it provides empty calories that go directly to your belly fat. If we talk about the low sugar or sugar free drinks, these types of drink contain artificial sugar and harmful chemicals that can prove harmful for your health.
It is also believed by the nutrition experts that artificial sweeteners lead the people to unintentional consumption of more calories thus gaining more weight in the long run.
Now, let’s talk about caffeine. Always remember one thing that caffeine itself is not a source of energy, however, it stimulates nerves system of a person and thus help some people in livening or waking up.
Experts suggest that if you are addicted to caffeine, you can get it from natural sources such as white, oolong or green teas, which also work as antioxidants.
In the same way, the fourth ingredient of such drinks, Vitamins B, can also be taken from natural sources rather than taking from carbonated drinks.
Hopefully this article has cleared all of the confusions you have about the energy drinks; no, you yourself can take decision whether to use these drinks or not.
