Are Energy Drinks Good For You? Social Website publishes details of effects on body
It gives you wings: But Red Bull and other energy drinks also give you other less enjoyable side effects
energy drinks are a must-have for many suffering the morning after the night before – or even students trying to pull an all-nighter for an essay deadline.
But a new infographic has revealed what’s actually happening to your body in the 24 hours after you drink Red Bull.
The breakdown details the initial spike in energy followed by the dastardly sugar crash.
But side effects from Red Bull can include headaches irritability and even constipation.
The researchers add: “Guidelines for caffeine are 400mg per day and so having a can of this every day shouldn’t pass this, yet the sugars and addiction that can be produced from doing this is something you should consider.’
They also add that a Starbucks Venti Caffe Americano contains 300 mg of caffeine – nearly four times that of a 250ml can of Red Bull.
