RedBull Doesn't Live Up to It's "Hype"

We learned about what happens to our bodies after we consume Coca-Cola. We also learned about how diet soda is no better than regular soda. Now we are learning the effects that energy drinks can leave on our body. The graphic will reveal what happens during the 10-minute mark, 15-45 minutes, 30-50 minutes, one hour, 5-6 hours, 12 hours, and even 12-24 hours after chugging back a RedBull energy drink.   During the first 10 minutes, your blood pressure and heart rate will rise.  During the 12-24 hours, your body will begin to feel symptoms of withdrawal, which include constipation, irritability, and headaches.   Dr. Farrimon spoke on the topic of RedBull and stated that energy drinks aren’t a great source to get energy from. It can have bad overall effects on the body. The drinks are high in sugar content. The extra ingredients don’t do much except make the drink more marketable. Each fizzy drink will be acidic due to being carbonated. Manufacturers tend to add more acid to give the drink a bit more “zing”. Red Bull has a pH level of 3.3, which is the same as vinegar. When this is combined with sugar, it is perfect for ruining the enamel on your teeth.   redbull   Moderate amounts of coffee has been known to cause a longer life span, but this is definitely not the same when it comes to energy drinks. The guidelines for caffeine are typically 400 mg each day and having a can of Red Bull shouldn’t pass this. However,  the addiction and the sugar is something you should be considering.   There has been a vast amount of research on the effects of energy drinks. In America, the admissions to emergency departments that were related to energy drinks actually doubled from 2007-2014. Those facts came right from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Dawn Report. The energy drink companies will compare the drinks to coffee and many of the coffee shops will sell the high caffeine beverages. Fatigue caused from lack of energy is contributed with multiple deaths from driving and falling asleep. There are approximately 500 deaths each year when it comes to driving and falling asleep at the wheel. Caffeine is okay in moderation, but it’s best to try another alternative than RedBull. Even if you find yourself falling asleep at the wheel, it would be better to pull over and take a quick nap and get a big cup of coffee.   Source: DailyMail Featured Image: Personalise   Do you follow us on Instagram?
