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. 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

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

What supplements are best for my well-being but provide me with extra natural energy? I was on a streak of taking 5 hour energy shots but realized this was probably not a very good way to keep myself energized. I am trying to avoid energy drinks and such

What supplements are best for my well-being but provide me with extra natural energy? I was on a streak of taking 5 hour energy shots but realized this was probably not a very good way to keep myself energized. I am trying to avoid energy drinks and such

Would keep avoiding: There is no evidence that any supplement is needed in healthy people for energy or well-being or anything else. A healthy diet, with lots of fruits and vegetables, diverse protein sources limiting red meat and saturated fats, is really all you need. If you are concerned, any of the available women's multivitamins (centrum, one a day etc, and their generic equivalents) would be fine. ...Read more

What is a good diet to increase energy?

What is a good diet to increase energy?

Diet and Energy: Good question: science has now proven that our caloric intake should be composed of protein first (about 60%) and just a bit of fats and carbohydrates.
