5 Caffeinated Energy Drinks
12-ounce cola drink has about 35 milligrams of caffeine 6-ounce cup of brewed coffee has 80 to 150 milligrams of caffeine Some energy drinks contain the caffeine equivalent of 14 cans of Coca-Cola Sports drinks contain at the most 6-7% sugar to allow maximum absorption into the blood stream and prevent sugar peaks and crashes. The high level of sugar in energy drinks slows fluid absorption into the blood and energy systems, increasing the risk of dehydration. This is because the body is trying to dilute the high sugar level in the blood and not sending water to the cells. Also the level of sugar peaks and quickly lowers in the blood , causing the person to “crash”.
