Recently, Dr. Pankaj Naram has been very keen to share warnings and recommendations regarding what food and drinks people consume. New studies highlight the potential dangers of consuming certain drinks. For example, there have been several recent studies highlighting the dangers of artificial sweeteners. Today, Dr. Naram would like to review how you can have optimal health. Yet another troubling study has identified some rather troubling side effects of energy drinks. Many individuals consume energy drinks on a regular basis, hoping that the concoctions will give them a boost and help them stay energized and focused throughout a tough day. However, a recent article published in the Journal of the American Heart Association has revealed that the ingredients that are added into energy drinks may be contributing to several different health complications.

To test the possible risks of energy drinks, the team conducting this research utilized a volunteer base of 18 healthy adults and compared their health readings after consuming 320 mg of caffeine, to their readings after consuming a typical energy drink. The energy drinks used contained about the same about of caffeine but also includes additional ingredients. These two tests were done 6 days apart to ensure that the first test did not impact the results of the second test. The blood pressure of the 18 participants was taken after they consumed the caffeine alone and then again after they consumed the energy drink, and an ECG was used for 24 hours in each case to measure the effects of the beverages as well.

What the team found was that in the instance where the energy drink was consumed, the participant's blood pressure not only reached a higher number, but also stayed elevated for a longer period of time than it did when they merely consumed the caffeine. The energy drink also had a distinctive effect on QT intervals in the patients compared to the caffeine alone. This lead the team to conclude that further study into the ingredients in energy drinks is needed. It is especially recommended that more study is done to determine how these ingredients may harm individuals with existing heart complications.

Dr. Pankaj Naram encourages people regularly to limit or avoid all together unnatural food and drinks from their diets, replacing them with more natural ways to boost energy and wellbeing. Dr. Naram especially advises patients with heart conditions and diabetes to avoid these potentially harmful substances. There are many other foods and practices that can help individuals improve their energy, and Dr. Naram is happy to share these techniques.
