  2. Energy Drinks do what? • Increase alertness? • Help concentration and focus? • Improve Performace?

  3. Look Familiar? • Ingredients/Contents of your energy drink • Guarana-also under the name Guaranine • Carnitine- or another name is L-Carnitine • Glucuronlactone • Inositol • Panax Ginseng • Vitamin B6 and B12 • Taurine • Sugar • Caffeine

  4. What do they “seem” to do for us? • Carnitine- improves endurance, increases fat metabolism, protects against cardiovascular disease • Glucuronlactone-promotes excretion of toxins and protects from cancer • Guarana- increases energy, enhances physical performance and promotes weight loss in individuals • Inositol- decreases triglyceride and cholesterol levels, lowering risk of cardiovascular disease • Panax Ginseng- Speeds up illness recovery, improves mental, physical and sexual performance, controls blood glucose and lowers blood pressure • Taurine- lowers risk of diabetes, epilepsy, and high blood pressure

  5. The truth! • Carnitine, Glucuronlactone, Inositol, Panax Ginseng have no clinical or scientific evidence that support these claims in energy drinks • Taurine has no clinical evidence on lowering the risk for diabetes and epilepsy but may help lower risk of blood pressure • Guarana’s main component is caffeine, for it helps increase energy, and suppresses appetite

  6. Sugar and Caffeine • Caffeine can bring adverse affects if too much is consumed. Having Guarana and caffeine in a energy drink may double or triple the amount of caffeine in one drink. • Sugar that is consumed in energy drinks bring people the “crashing effect” and insulin spikes. It also gives low serotonin levels...which make you crave more sugar
