Are energy drinks bad for me?

I drank one today and I started sweating, shaking, and felt out of it.

    They are not particularly good for you. Most contain an extremely high amount of sugar, which is not good for your body. Sugar, when not broken down, gets stored as fat. Not to mention that it does not have long-lasting energy. Energy drinks also contain a lot of caffeine. Caffeine, when consumed too much, can lead to renal failure. It also leaches water from the body, leading to dehydration.

    Energy drinks in moderation are not terrible for you… I would imagine by your reactions that you are a bit sensitive to caffeine and probably do not drink them all too often. Next time, try drinking half and waiting about thirty minutes to assess your tolerance. You started sweating and shaking because your body temperature slightly rose, an effect of caffeine and other such stimulants.

    According to one article, energy drinks can also cause irregular heart beats and boost blood pressure. Energy drinks can have more than just caffeine, such as B vitamins, ginseng, guarana, and ephedrine.

    They are not particularly good for you, but so far there has been very little realistic condemning evidence for avoiding them at all costs. The reason energy drinks make you “feel out of it,” and coincidentally the reason that so many people use them, is the extremely high levels of caffeine and sugar they contain. This allows people to feel a great burst of energy, but then there is always the inevitable crash when your body comes down from the “high.” Caffeine has a different effect on everyones body, especially in different doses, thus resulting in varying effects for different people. Some negative effects can include sweating, nausea, insomnia, nervousness, chest pains and tremors. But again, you can get similar effects from drinking coffee with the similar amounts of caffeine. There are now healthier options of energy drinks being offered without the caffeine and sugar, using instead more natural forms of energy.
