How come my body doesn't seem affected by high amounts of sugar and caffeine?
I don't eat sweets and I rarely drink coffee and energy drinks, but when I do I don't get affected. My body just stays in the energy (condition) as it would normally.
Was there any actual research conducted on this topic? I'm asking because few years ago I went for approximately a month drinking nothing but energy drinks (50-80 oz. a day) and a cup of coffee every few days while deployed to Afghanistan. No water, no tea, no juice, not even soda... just energy drinks and an occasional coffee. The weird thing is that I was completely fine. Despite being in a hot climate and working pretty hard, I suffered no ill effects, other than not sleeping much; although, I was never tired, so I guess it doesn't count.
I don't know which energy drinks you drink, but the most popular ones don't contain more than 32mg of caffeine per 100ml. A can is usually 250ml or 500ml, so it contains roughly about 90-160mg of caffeine per serving. Definently not 260mg
2:21 You're comparing the energy in 1 cup of coffee to 8 cans of Red Bull. Lemme fix that for you:
Coffee (1 cup): 5 calories
Red Bull (1 can): 106.25 calories
Still 200x, but it sounds nowhere near as much as you said.
some of this information is wrongly scaring people.. none of the common energy drinks (Monster, Red Bull, Rockstar, Relentless) have anywhere near 242mg of caffiene... Monster, Rockstar and Relentless have 160mg per 500ml can and Red Bull only has around 75mg per can! Also, 200-400mg is safe to take for the average adult
Some of these aren't the same in all countries like Denmark we have rules about it so we only have about 92 mg coffine and there are sugar free drinks too. This may be accurate in the US but check other places too please!
This comment is not a joke. I started drinking energy drinks a few years back. But now i think im consuming too much. It seems like a drug to me. To be exact, ive been drinking atleast 1 can of redbull every day for a WHOLE year now.
Energydrinks actually calm me down. And I can totally sleep after having had one, unlike the stories I always hear about people unable to with caffeine in their system.
Might just drink like 2 or 3 small sugarfree cans in a day. So that's like 750ml and at 32mg/100ml that's 240mg caffeine a day.
I did one time try 'Dynapep', which is a tiny capsule liquid caffeine concentrate and that really got my heart racing. Must be what cocaine's like. Gotta be careful with that shit.
You know... Even though I know the risks, I continue to drink two to three Monsters a day. So far I haven't had any super adverse effects (except for the occasional lack of sleep) but I'm counting down the days until my heart gives out. Thankfully I can go for extended periods of time without drinking them, but it takes a lot of willpower. lol I crave the flavour more than the benefits.
Yeah, the health risks is why several political groups over here want energy drinks to either be banned or gain an age limit similar to alcohol.
Because kids and teens drinking this on a frequent or even daily basis is really detrimental for their health.
Patients taking Viagra are less likely to suffer a heart attack, new research claims.
Men taking the impotence drug were found to have a lower risk of having a heart attack or dying from heart failure than those not on the medication.
The findings mean Viagra could soon be used to treat hundreds of thousands of heart failure patients and even prevent fatal heart attacks, scientists say.
Experts from the University of Manchester studied 6,000 diabetic patients who had been given Viagra to treat erectile dysfunction.
The drug relaxes muscle cells in the blood vessels supplying the penis, allowing more blood to flow there.
This increased blood flow increases the likelihood of getting an erection.
Given the increasing reports of deaths in which the use of Viagra may be implicated, clinicians need to exercise caution when advising their patients with heart
Experts believe a key ingredient in Viagra called PDE5i, which relaxes blood vessels, also prevents damage to heart cells.
Heart failure is caused by the heart failing to pump enough blood around the body at the right pressure.
It most often occurs because the heart muscle has become too weak or stiff to work properly and is usually treated with medication which supports the heart.
Despite diabetics being prone to heart problems, the study participants did not suffer as many incidents as similar patients not on the drug.
