Japanese Energy Drinks ( Does it really work or is it bad for your health )


What are energy drinks?  Energy drinks are drinks that contain large doses of caffeine and other legal stimulants. We have now entered a generation where energy drinks have become so popular among  Japanese teenagers and young adults.  Japan has become a really busy and active society. Working hours tend to be long and  Japanese people depend on coffee or energy drinks that both contain caffeine to start their day. Caffeine stimulates your nervous system, giving you energy and causes you to feel more alert  of your surroundings and gives you that extra energy if you have had lack of sleep.

Unfortunately, the effects of caffeine wear off after a few hours. The reason why it wears off is because caffeine is not naturally produced by your body, so it is broken down by the liver and when our body becomes used to this substance, we crave for it more. From a medical point of view,  drinking energy drinks over works your liver and those people that are on medication can affect or damage  their liver and kidneys. On the other hand, what are the benefits of energy drinks? Most of the Japanese drinks tend not to contain caffeine only but are combined with vitamins such as B1, B2 , B6, vitamin C and vitamin E, just to mention a few. The fact that Japanese people tend to be busy all the time, they need to consume something as they are on the move, for example on their way to work or just working in front of their desk. The other reason why Japanese people drink energy drinks could be the fact that it contains vitamins and other supplements that could benefit their bodies and health. But do you think artificially obtaining vitamins and other supplements is the right way and health way?
