The Truth About Energy Drinks

Team - 4:08 AM

by Healthy Holistic Living

Energy drinks are a $9 billion a year business, but what are they doing to your health?

France & Denmark have banned Red Bull from the country.

RED BULL – slow death. Do NOT drink this drink anymore!

Pay attention…read and watch everything.

Red Bull was created to stimulate the brains in people who are subjected to great physical force and in stress coma and never to be consumed like an innocent drink or soda pop.

Red Bull is the energizer drink that is commercialized world-wide with its slogan: “It increases endurance, awakens the concentration capacity and the speed of reaction, offers more energy and improves the mood. All this can be found in a can of Red Bull, the power drink of the millennium”.

Red Bull has managed to arrive in almost 100 countries worldwide. The Red Bull logo is targeted at young people and sportsmen, two attractive segments that have been captivated by the stimulus that the drink provides.

It was created by Dietrich Mateschitz, an industrialist of Austrian origin who discovered the drink by chance. It happened during a business trip to Hong Kong , when he was working at a factory that manufactured toothbrushes.

The liquid, based on a formula that contained caffeine and taurine, caused a rage in that country. Imagine the grand success of this drink in Europe where the product still did not exist, besides it was a superb opportunity to become an entrepreneur.

France and Denmark have just prohibited it as a cocktail of death, due to its vitamin components mixed with Glucuronolactone – a highly-dangerous chemical, which was developed by the United States Department of Defense during the sixties to stimulate the moral of the troops based in Vietnam, which acted like a hallucinogenic drug that calmed the stress of the war.

But their effects in the organism were so devastating, that it was discontinued, because of the high index of cases of migraines, cerebral tumors and diseases of the liver that was evident in the soldiers who consumed it.

And in spite of it, in the can of Red Bull you can still find as one of its components: Glucuronolactone, categorized medically as a stimulant. But what it does not say on the can of Red Bull are the consequences of its consumption, and that has forced a series of warnings…

1. It is dangerous to take it if you do not engage in physical exercise afterwards, since its energizing function accelerates the heart rate and can cause a sudden attack.

2. You run the risk of undergoing a cerebral hemorrhage, because Red Bull contains components that dilute the blood so that the heart utilizes less energy to pump the blood, and thus be able to deliver physical force with less effort being exerted.

3. It is prohibited to mix Red Bull with alcohol, because the mixture turns the drink into a ” Deadly Bomb ” that attacks the liver directly, causing the affected area never to regenerate anymore.

4. One of the main components of Red Bull is the B12 vitamin, used in medicine to recover patients who are in a coma ; from here the hypertension and the state of excitement which is experienced after taking it, as if you were in a drunken state.

5. The regular consumption of Red Bull triggers off symptoms in the form of a series of irreversible nervous and neuronal diseases.

Conclusion: It is a drink that should be prohibited in the entire world as when it is mixed with alcohol it creates a time bomb for the human body, mainly between innocent adolescents and adults with little experience.

  1. This article is completely false. A total fantasy story. Not "truth" at all.

    Glucuronolactone is NOT a chemical agent "developed by the dept of defense..." that is a stupid age old urban legend.
    Glucuronolactone is a naturally occurring endogenous chemical and is an important component of the body's connective tissues.
    Glucuronolactone as a supplement, inhibits the synthesis of toxic by-products as a result of intense physical exercise.
    It is easily metabolised into completely harmless substances.

    Vit B12 is NOT the cause of the "hypertension, state of excitement" and certainly not of a "drunken state". Ridiculous.
    Th minuscule amount of B12 in Red Bull is well below the RDA and certainly FAR below any dangerous amount of B12.
    B12 is an essential part of a healthy diet and it is in meat, fish, eggs, certain plants and algae.
    It is a normal vitamin with no side effects.
    The LD50 (deadly dose for 50% of test subjects) for B12 is more than 5,000mg (that is FIVE GRAMS) PER KILO BODYWEIGHT. That is about 400 grams (14 Oz) for an average adult man. There is 4.4 micrograms in a Red Bull. That is 4.4 MILLIONTH of a gram. That means that before you reach the LD50 from Red Bull, you will have to drink about 25 million Red Bulls.

    The most noticable ingredients of Red Bull are sugar and cafeine.
    Cafeine is also the cause of the excited feeling from red Bull.
    Cafeine and sugar together give a feeling of stimulation, the reason why people drink coffee.
    Combined with taurine and vitamins, it gives a definite energy boost.

    RB contains 75 mg of cafeine per can. Safe use of cafeine for healthy people is about 400mg a day in healthy adults..

    The effects of cafeine, though, are quicker heartbeat, fast, shallower breathing, energetic feeling, excitability -especially at higher doses. , lack of appetite, etc. It IS a stimulant.
    The effects of high doses can be panic attacks, stress and hyperactivity, buit in normal doses, cafeine has few negative effects for a stimulant whenn the recommended amounts are not exceeded..

    The problem with energy drinks is when people take enormous doses or combine them with alcohol, drugs, etc.
    Stimulants like cafeine boost the effects of alcohol and drugs and can give the users a false sense of sobriety.

    Don't get me wrong; I am definitely not promoting the use of energy drinks, I do not take ANY cafeine-containing beverages.
    But when people do not exaggerate the use of them, the only side effects are the same as in people who drink a few cups of coffee; more talkative, a bit more stressed, a bit speedy.. Nothing dangerous, just sometimes slightly annoying to observe and be around.

    To spread false information about use of energy drinks based upon internet hoaxes, urban legends and fear-mongering just gives you a bad rep and diminishes your credibility as a source of good information.
