Which sports drink is best? Are energy drinks harmful? The school of thought is constantly changing about which drinks are healthy.
Although sports drinks have had their own share of controversy thruout the years and have expanded their roles past the simple goal of rehydration, to lending an assist in providing an energy boost, inducing relaxation, fighting cancer, boosting the immune system and more...the so-called 'health drink', nothing is more controversial than the fastest growing segment - energy drinks.
Pre-teens and teens are giving them a try and like what they consume. But, the combination of no labeling requirements including no limits on caffeine content (hopefully soon to change), significant side effects and complications from excessive use including death and indications that young adults will move from these drinks to stronger stimulants creates a disturbing backdrop to the popularity of energy drinks.
If you have children, think twice (or maybe more) before allowing them to use an energy drink. Remember that children’s systems are still developing, they may be more susceptible to the effects of caffeine and there are addictive qualities to both caffeine and caffeine-like ingredients such as the taurine and mateine found in some energy drinks.
Informed, thoughtful use of energy drinks can be a great way to get a short term energy boost. However, if you plan to use an energy drink, make sure you know how much caffeine you are actually ingesting and don’t risk mixing your energy beverage with alcohol.
