Energy Drink

Last Sunday when we were shopping, my hubby wanted to buy some energy drink, which happened to be on sale.

It made me remember last time when I work in the company that produced energy drink. Sometimes I had to taste the flavor. Normally, after that, I could not sleep at night. Felt like full of energy. However, the next day, felt like no energy at all.

The burst of energy comes primarily from caffeine, but energy drinks are also loaded with sugar. Sugar comes in the form of glucuronolactone, sucrose, and glucose. Some drinks also contain an extract from guarana seeds which works to stimulate the central nervous system in a fashion similar to the way caffeine stimulates the body. Guarana seeds also have thermogenic properties, which increase the body’s metabolism through the generation of heat.

A soft drink usually has 19 to 25 grams of sugar in each eight-ounce serving. Energy drinks on average contain more than this. Red Bull, for example, contains 27 grams of sugar per serving of 250 milliliters (a little over eight ounces). This can be very dangerous, for an overload of sugar can lead to gastric emptying. The body becomes dehydrated, which prevents metabolized sugar from entering the bloodstream. This often results in nausea and vomiting. So when you are thirsty, think twice before grabbing an energy drink to rehydrate yourself.
