With the constantly increasing paces of everyday life the search for an energy source, capable of boosting the human body to new limits by extending its endurance, continues. In the recent years a specific product, called an energy drink, has received much publicity worldwide. The energy drink is a highly caffeinated stimulant that is able to rise the performance of the human body. Many people consider it as a refreshment after a hard day’s work. What’s more one of the most frequently used cases of energy drinks is in combination with alcohol during parties. However, the majority of consumers do not understand the way they work and often abuse with the consumption of the substance. Furthermore, a great amount of them are unaware of what effects can be caused on the human body. Many consumers agree that energy drinks actually provide the human body with the desired energy. The reason behind this effect is caused by the high amounts of caffeine and sugar. Whenever a consumer uses an energy drink a series of effects begin in his/her body. The organism receives an instant boost as the caffeine successfully manages to block the duties of the adenosine, a chemical located in the brain whose function is involved with sleeping. After the completion of the process caffeine forces part of the neurons in the brain to lighten up, which later on causes the body to release the hormone adrenaline. When the hormone is active it forces the liver to provide the bloodstream with additional

These results oppose the theoretical action of caffeine, which inhibits the action of adenosine by blocking its receptors to increase neural activity. As caffeine acts as a competitive inhibitor to block adenosine from binding, an increase in the concentration of caffeine molecules should result in an increase in the number of adenosine receptors which are blocked by caffeine. Thus, fewer adenosine molecules should be able to bind and so a decrease in its effects; drowsiness, fatigue and mental alertness, is expected to occur. Thus, it is expected that the subjects who drank 100% caffeinated beverages experience faster reaction times than those who drank the 50% caffeinated

My college roommate, John, will tell you that his first run-in with tequila was his last. One bad, “Cinco-de-Drinko,” and the guy has sworn off the stuff for good. So when at a Vegas bachelor party earlier this month, we all knew that John would relive that night before refusing a celebratory shot of Patrón. In doing so, John has made the mistake of falling into what Hammond calls, “The Recalability Trap,” in focusing on dramatic events that transpired years ago. Now, waking up in the hospital fresh off a stomach pump, charged with assaulting two police officers, and remembering none of it due to his blackout is certainly, “a dramatic or traumatic event in your own life [that] can […] distort your thinking,” but his decision to abstain from tequila in particular is biased and psychologically flawed, influenced by consequence over causation (Hammond, 9).
The beverages production was motivated by the football team and the curiosity surrounding their decreased performance in the hot Florida heat (Mayo & Kravitz n.d.). After several studies were conducted, the team of physicians found that the poor performance was mostly due to the loss of fluids, electrolytes, and carbohydrates (Mayo & Kravitz n.d.). Thus, the electrolyte rich, sugar filled beverage Gatorade was born. Given that, all sports drinks today follow those same three common themes. Water to hydrate, simple carbohydrates for energy, and electrolytes to distribute the fluids and promote muscle contraction (Levin-Epstein, n.d.).
These chemicals are very harmful and end up causing long lasting problems to the body. When caffeine is created in the lab, it turns out to be a bitter, white, powder.
