Are There Benefits of Energy Drinks?
Marketing claims put to the test. Nothing positive about energy drinks. They increase blood pressure and inflammation. Excellent presentation!

Oddly enough, I was drinking a glass of reconstituted wheatgrass juice powder while watching this. My favorite energy drink!

shadylady: Thanks for posting that video. I really like the way that guy does his research. He sticks to the topic without any BSing around. Not too many YouTubers putting out quality videos like that!

Study among soldiers suggests a high intake of energy drinks may be linked to mental health problems
Nothing surprising about this. Anything that throws your body's natural equilibrium out of wack is bound to have negative effects.

Could be that high consumption of energy drinks gives them a twitchy trigger finger.

Energy drink use should not be seen as an alternative to getting adequate sleep. If you get adequate sleep, then energy drinks should not be needed. Maybe a couple times a month on days where you're feeling sluggish, but energy drinks on a regular basis is asking for eventual health problems. There are no shortcuts when it comes to taking care of your body. As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
