Are five hour energy drinks every day bad for you?

Are five hour energy drinks every day bad for you?

Yes: The problem with 5 hour energy drinks is the amount of vitamins they contain (8333% recommended daily intake of b12). This is an essential, water soluble vitamin that is excreted by your kidney.

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.

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

Many of them have extremely high levels of caffeine. ...Read more

So while it may very well make you more alert, there is no scientific data that i'm aware of that would show how strong the effects are, or how long they would last. As with any supplement, make sure you include it in the list of medications you report to your doctor if they ask. ...Read more
