How does 5 hour energy work?  Is it safe to take?

Stimulant: 5 hour energy drinks contain Amino Acids said to increase alertness, along with b vitamins plus caffeine. If you get jittery with coffee or other caffeine containing drinks, you will get jittery with 5 hour energy.

Are five hour energy drinks every day bad for you?

Is a five hour energy every day bad for you in the long run?

Is a five hour energy every day bad for you in the long run?

I would say so: For the most part; any of these "attention getting" products are not very good {short or long term} for you as they usually contain an extreme amount of sugar. If you find yourself having 'energy' problems make sure you start out the day with a healthy breakfast, drink plenty of water, and take a vitamin b complex supplement of your diet is poor. ...Read more

Is matalic acid bad for your body. It's an ingredient in five hour energy drinks.?

Is matalic acid bad for your body. It's an ingredient in five hour energy drinks.?

It's malic acid: And it probably doesn't do any more harm than any other carbohydrate (which is what it is - a sugar). Energy drinks are primarily "fueled" by caffeine. The additional vitamins, Amino Acids and sugars in it are window dressing and there is no evidence that they add anything to the "energy" derived from the caffeine. You are already on adderal-talk to your doctor about it before taking caffeine. ...Read more

I haven't slept for 36 hours, approaching 48 tonight.. I go work as normal during day and have energy - why can't i sleep? Using no meds.

Danger zone: If you have not slept in over 36 hours, you're in the danger zone for making serious errors in judgment or driving, etc. The results can be as serious as if you're drunk. Have you been using any recreational stimulants? Do you have any family history of psychiatric illnesses, like bipolar disorder? I strongly suggest you see your physician asap for an evaluation. This can be how mania starts. ...Read more

What are the health effects of drinking energy drinks like red bull and five hour energy?

What are the health effects of drinking energy drinks like red bull and five hour energy?

Not good: I have to admit I have used them occasionally, but I don't recommend them. Some are better than others, but they all have a lot of things in them that aren't very good for you and there is no quality control to guarantee they have exactly what it says on the label. Many of them have extremely high levels of caffeine. ...Read more
