What are the ingredients in 5 hour energy drink?

What are the ingredients in 5 hour energy drink?

Caffeine & sugar: Read labels. Your "energy" drink likely contains a fair amount of caffeine & loads of sugar calories. Have you noticed how you "crash" after the caffeine and sugar wear off a few hours after drinking the product? Instead, eat healthy, get plenty of sleep, and exercise--you'll not only feel better and well rested but your daily performance and outlook will improve. ...Read more

Are 5 hour energy drinks bad for you?

Are  5 hour energy drinks bad for you?

Intrinsically, No.: If you need to stay awake for 5 hours and have no physiologic reason to avoid stimulants i don't see this as bad per se. However, repeated use or dependency might make you wonder if something else is underlying. Clearly there are many conditions and medications which would make taking stimulants unwise. Mixing other psychoactive drugs including the illegal stuffs and alcohol probably not good. ...Read more

Is it bad to take azithromycin with 5 hour energy drinks?

Is it bad to take azithromycin with 5 hour energy drinks?

5 Hour Energy: It is my opinion that one should not use 5 hour energy drinks at all because of potential for adverse effects on blood pressure and the heart. Azithromycin is subject to degradation when exposed to an acid environment. 5 hour energy will increase the acidic level of the stomach and could inactivate part of the dose of azithromycin. ...Read more

Are energy drinks, like "boost" or the Atkins diet energy drink ok for a no carb diet?

Energy Drinks: First there is no medical or health benefit from 'energy drinks'. These drinks are usually high in caffeine and/or sugars. I would read the labels and if there are any carbs in the drink recommend that you not ingest it. But, in general i would recommend avoiding these unnecessary and non-nutritional drinks all together. ...Read more

Does 5 hour energy and other similar energy drinks cause bad sleep patters and panic attacks? I drink coffee and coffee never gives me those symptoms

Does 5 hour energy and other similar energy drinks cause bad sleep patters and panic attacks? I drink coffee and coffee never gives me those symptoms

Energy drinks: Yes, it is quite possible. Many of these "energy drinks" contain much higher levels of caffeine than in a cup or two of coffee. Additional ingredients may also trigger reactions in sensitive individuals. Avoid these drinks, and consider getting some exercise (like brisk walking) if you need a brief pickup in the afternoon. Any caffeine after 6 PM can trigger sleep problems. Good luck! ...Read more

How many Monster Energy Drinks (caffeine 166 mg) (taurine 2000 mg) (vitamin B12 590%) (vitamin B6 220%) in a 8 hour period is considered dangerous?

How many Monster Energy Drinks (caffeine 166 mg) (taurine 2000 mg) (vitamin B12 590%) (vitamin B6 220%) in a 8 hour period is considered dangerous?

Two would be tops: for the whole day. Up to 400 milligrams (mg) of caffeine a day appears to be safe for most healthy adults. That's roughly the amount of caffeine in four cups of brewed coffee, 10 cans of cola or two "energy shot" drinks. Although caffeine use may be safe for adults, it's not a good idea for children. ...Read more

Will drinking an energy drink with no sugar or calories daily get someone sick?

Will drinking an energy drink with no sugar or calories daily get someone sick?

Probably not: 1 energy drink a day will probably not do any serious damage to you. However, it is not supporting your health. It is not unusual to have a sensitivity to artificial sweeteners (they give me a headache, for instance). Also, energy drinks contain untested combinations of caffeine and herbal supplements. They can be quite dangerous in large quantities. Which means they are not healthy overall. ...Read more
