I think they are cumulative. And tangible harm is done after a year of use or more. Making it even more addictive. Arrhythmia and impaired liver and kidney function. The development of diabetes. And decreased appetite
Causes depletion of the nervous system. You can't take them all the time. Problems with the nervous system, heart and gastrointestinal tract can occur. The dosage of these same energy drinks per day is also important. In addition to pure caffeine, guarana, etc., they contain excipients that irritate the digestive tract. This can lead to stomach ulcers. Everything should be within reasonable limits.
I'll try to be short. Everyone knows what harm they do - the Internet is full of this. Energetics mobilize the body's resources and their constant use shortens life. This is the physiology of any organism. And if they are used for stimulation during an illness, then they wear out the body even more. Of course, in some cases, stimulants are necessary, but when, what and how much it is better for a doctor to decide.
Depends on the real composition and quality of the ingredients.
The father of all power engineers is Krating Dang, still produced in Southeast Asian countries, which served as the basis for the creation of Red Bull and now belongs to it, does not cause any damage to the body, if not abused. The dose of caffeine in one serving of drink is not higher than in one cup of espresso.
Taurine is formulated to soften the stimulating effect of caffeine and as a sugar regulator.
"Taurine is a semi-essential amino acid which plays the role of a lipid / membrane stabilizer and supports various antioxidant systems of the body's defense. The beneficial properties of taurine are mainly manifested as a result of interaction with other substances present in the body, while its direct action is observed only at the cellular level. Taurine is widely studied as an antidiabetic an agent due to its action on organs commonly affected by diabetics (kidneys, eyesight, nervous system) and as a blood sugar control agent, reducing some forms of insulin resistance Also known as: 2-aminoethanesulfonic acid, L-taurine Is an amino acid additive.

Vitamins and trace elements are contained in it in non-essential quantities.
Another thing is its derivative - the energy drink Red Bull. It's high in sugar and carbonated, which isn't healthy at all. The rest of the composition is close to the original.
Energy from other producers should be considered specifically, but most of them are rare rubbish.
There is nothing useful as well as not useful (provided that there is no overuse) in energy drinks. Those substances that cause "energy" are concentrated in these drinks in extremely small quantities. Don't play around :)
The composition of most energy drinks is the same, and with moderate consumption, they will not harm the body. So, energy drinks contain caffeine in its pure form or substitute substances like guarana or tea extracts. A 100 ml energy drink contains approximately 30 to 50 mg of caffeine per 100 ml. This means that in an average can of this substance is about the same as in a mug of double espresso. Therefore, with moderate consumption of caffeine in the composition of the energy drink, it cannot cause significant problems in relatively healthy people.
The energy drink also contains a significant amount of carbohydrates. Their ingestion causes a sharp jump in blood sugar, which also stimulates the body's nervous system. In addition, a strong carbonation of such drinks with carbonic acid contributes to the rapid obtaining of the arousal effect.
Also, an energy drink may contain various dietary supplements, such as taurine or glucuronolactone. They are more of a nice bonus, and generally don't have an immediate effect. Previously, reports on the safety of substances contained in energy drinks have already been published: it turned out that in the quantities in which they are added to drinks, they do not cause harm.
The use of a large number of energy drinks, or the combination of energy drinks with other stimulants. This can cause a sharp increase in blood pressure, up to a hypertensive crisis, arrhythmias or heart attack. But if you drink one can a day or take a significant break between the use of energy drinks, health problems can be avoided.
Good afternoon. If we consider energy drinks, even simply based on their definition as substances that stimulate the activity of the nervous system, then even without an alcoholic component they are harmful.
Since any artificial stimulation implies disruption of normal functioning.
Basic composition of "energy" drinks:
Although the content of these substances does not exceed the daily norm, even taking into account the usual daily diet, such a composition clearly cannot be called useful.
Now directly to the answer to the question.
What harm do energy drinks do to the body?
One-time intake , such products will not bring obvious problems to the body. Unless, of course, there are existing chronic diseases, such as diabetes mellitus or arterial hypertension. The only thing that can occur is an overdose of the same caffeine, if previously consumed products containing it (coffee, tea, etc.).
But constant use threatens with rather serious consequences, especially in childhood and adolescence, here are some of them:
This list can be extended indefinitely. But as it is already clear, the benefits of such a chemical energy set are quite small. It is better, however, to sensibly weigh temporary wakefulness and a rather serious health risk.
