Do you feel that energy drinks really work & actually do what they say they will do?
Honestly I really thought that energy drinks worked when I was in college and drinking them every morning to wake me up, but coffee is the read deal, energy drinks are nothing but bad tasting carbonated pop. That's my honest opinion lol
I have never tried them but I do not think that they have any special significance. I believe that fruit juices give you much more than they do.
Personally I despise energy drinks. They are overflowing with caffeine and sugar. I prefer a coffee myself.
They do provide and initial coffee and sugar hit, but will also cause dehydration in the drinker, conveniently creating more desire in the consumer for a drink.
Well that is my opinion.
I think one does not need an energy drink to get energy. If one is over 21 all one has to do is have a zip of beer a day and the yeast in the beer has the ability to energize a person greatly. I don't buy energy drinks because they just have a lot of caffeine. I already drink Mountain Dew to get the caffeine. Children could take a multivitamin once in a while and maybe some brewers yeast to get the B vitamins and it would work better. I don't drink the energy drinks myself. I think energy drinks might make people hyper.
I am addicted to caffeine...not in a bad way, but I have to have my morning coffee, which I put in a thermos cup and drink during my daily morning walk around 6:15 a.m. Nothing like that first sip! Then I have one more cup after my walk.
I have never tried the energy drinks, though. I am kind of afraid of putting that stuff into my body. Therefore, I don't know if they really work.
That being said, I DO drink a bottle of Starbucks coffee and milk mid-afternoon to get me out of my afternoon wind-down lag. It does perk me up, and it is only 110 calories. I think I may be addicted to that afternoon drink, but I love it. And it does work for me.
Great question, blessings, Sparklea
Energy drink and coffee do the same thing. They constrict arteries. The effect is like adrenalin that also constricts arteries so that less blood will flow. Energy drink and coffee harden arteries that contribute to heart disease.
As i am getting older I have found the need to do something about my exceeding lack of energy. These drinks do work as well as does coffee but its a short-lived unhealthy effect. I am making an effort to help my energy crisis as naturally as possibly with v8 energy drinks which have green tea instead of caffeine. I am very sensitive and find that even these make me a little jittery if I drink too much.

Do you rely on substances for extra energy?Some people use energy shots, some drink lots of coffee and Red Bull is extremely.popular. I use caffeine tablets for extra energy, and find that it helps md ADD, as well. Does anybody here use anything that works? Vitamins? Supplements? Certain foods?...
