There are countless reasons why energy drinks should be avoided like the plague; their consumption has somewhat turned into a plague since the 1980’s!
The negative health effects only compound- ending up turning into this huge intertwined mess.
Take a look at my article published through Advanced Chiropractic. It goes into some detail- sorting through the cluster mess of the negative effects gifted by energy drink consumption and then goes on to list clean, natural ways to raise your energy!
Needing energy in your daily life that just isn’t there is a signifier that your body needs something. Start here with these natural energy boosters and see how your life can seriously transform!
While I will never tell you to completely stop something that you enjoy, I do care to make you aware of the dangers. These drinks are incredibly addictive and cause some real bodily detriment when used daily.
It is also wise to keep children away from these drinks. They can not only be dangerous to general health and function- energy drinks act similar to alcohol when it comes to making any sort of “good” decision or the effect of holding any kind of focus.
