Most energy drinks can have up to 21 teaspoons of sugar & excessive levels of caffeine!
Leading health experts are urging students to avoid using the commonly sold energy drinks to fuel study sessions and exams considering the enormous amount of sugar and caffeine in them. There are as much as 21 teaspoons and two and a half espresso shots in some of these commonly purchased drinks.
Regular consumption of these levels can have serious health consequences and many children are becoming addicted to high levels of sugar at a very young age. These drinks are an especially risky drink choice for anyone, but especially for students who may be consuming several a day during intensive study and exam periods.
The high levels of caffeine and sugar in energy drinks cause energy and blood sugar levels to spike, but after an hour, the caffeine and sugar in the body starts to wear off followed by feeling tired and lethargic. So in the middle of an exam or study session, energy levels are likely to crash making it difficult to focus.
If consumed regularly the high sugar content in energy drinks can lead to weight gain and obesity, increasing your risk of heart and kidney disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke and some cancers.
