Recent reports from FDA reveal several deaths related to consuming energy drinks. Many commonly believe these drinks are safe and a good source for a quick energy boost.
In most instances neither assumption is true. For most energy drinks, especially Monster Drinks, Rockstar, and 5 hour energy, caffeine provides the greatest physical jolt.
Unfortunately, we now know several individuals have died as a result of taking these drinks.
Use with caution. They are not beneficial for athletes, dangerous for those on heart medications, and a source of jittery, short lived energy for the rest of us.
