Energy drinks are quite popular among young high school and college students, as well as working professionals, busy parents, and athletes looking for that extra edge. But are they really all that great? Why do so many flock to these sugary and often foul tasting concoctions? Well because they do exactly as promised, give you a BOOST of energy! But is it worth it?
The answer is no! Drinks like Monster, Redbull, and 5 hour energy are a huge hype on the market today but check out this article where consumers weigh the pros and cons. One common complaint is that is tastes awful and leaves them with the jitters.
So lets say you drink one of these monstrosities to stay awake and cram for your exam scheduled first thing in the morning. You chug it down, get the boost you need, study, and then pray that you get a few hours of sleep before the exam. Well often many cannot shake that “high” from the drink and they are left with a mind that is wide awake and a body that is extremely tired. Accompanied with the jitters, it’s almost impossible to sleep. So you take that exam the next day and how’d you do? How do you feel physically?
My experience with this (I have been know to procrastinate in college) is that I did horrible on the exam because I couldn’t focus nor could I concentrate and I would skip the next class so I could finally get some sleep!! Was it worth it?! NO!!! What did I learn?
