Are energy drinks bad for you? 

Are energy drinks bad for you? Energy drinks such as redbull or monster are popular inside of convenience stores. They are similar to coffee because they both contain caffeine. Although red bull and monster contain caffeine they also contain other ingredients such as taurine. Taurine is a stimulant and when mixed with caffeine as well as other ingredients, it can enhance the effects of caffeine.

The EFSA confirmed in 2015 that ingredients in energy drinks are safe. This should not be overlooked. Reguardless of this statement energy drinks should not be consumed more then once a day if at all. If you work long hours it is best to find an alternative. Coffee should also be limited through out the day.

The ingredients inside of energy drinks mixed with caffeine can have negative effects on the body if consumed to much. Calcium Oxalate can be found in energy drinks and soda which over time can increase the likelihood of developing kidney stones. It is probably best to avoid energy drinks and find replacements.
