The Energy Shot Craze | Are they safe for consumption?

          We’ve all been there. The midafternoon energy dip, the head nod, finding yourself on the brink of slumber during the 3 pm office meeting. This is just one of many situations in which consumers reach for a pick-me-up to get them through the rest of the day, be it coffee, a snack, or more recently, an energy drink.

            The controversy surrounding energy drinks increases as the market saturates and more people are replacing natural sources of energy with these alluring alternatives. While these beverages suffice in providing an instant surge of energy, the negative repercussions of their consumption far outweigh the temporary high. Most energy drinks on the market today are  laden with artificial ingredients and contain exceedingly high levels of both caffeine and sugar, which ultimately cause the consumer to crash. Long-term effects range from caffeine dependence, to heart problems, and possibly death. As consumers become more educated on the dangerous effects of popular energy drinks, health conscious individuals are beginning to shy away from their use.
