Now for a coffee
A cup of coffee is about the same as drinking a can of Red Bull
I don't drink tea nor coffee. Might drink two or three energy drinks a week. Mainly Lucozade, which is pretty much just sugar.
I've heard stories about Red Bull being a bi-product of a fuel that was being researched for Forumla 1 cards
Whether that's true or not, I don't know. I can't stand the taste of it after a few mouth fulls.
Are you sure of this " A cup of coffee is about the same as drinking a can of Red Bull
I read in wiki it's forbidden in France but it sells in pharmacies I don't know why sell if it is injurious ?
I've heard if you drink Energy drink you should do sports like Soccer, I don't know if that true .
but I think wrote in Red Bull not suitable during play Soccer I can't read it because not clear .
and thank you everybody
It's banned in France because there are laws there that state how much caffeine can be in drinks like that.
Though you do need to do something active if you drink energy drinks, such as Red Bull. Try drinking a can or two and then just sit and do nothing. You won't feel all that well because you've just got two days worth of sugar dumped inside you and it isn't being burnt off.
The effects of drinking them kinds of drinks is pretty much the same affects as doing drugs such as heroin.
When you drink a can of Red Bull, for example. 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your stomach. The phosphoric acid cuts all the sweetness down stopping you from vomiting.
After 20 minutes, your blood sugar spikes, and causes an insulin burst. Your liver turns all this sugar in to fat. 40 minutes and all the caffeine is absorbed in to your body. Your blood pressure rises, the liver dumps more sugar in to the blood stream and your adenosine receptors are blocked preventing drowsiness. 45 minutes and your body ups the dopamine production that stimulates your brain, the same way heroin works. 60 minutes gone and the phosphoric acid binds the calcium, magnesium and zinc in your lower intestine, providing a boost to your metabolism. This is compounded by a high dose of sugar and increases the urinary excretion of calcium.
By now you'll need to pee. You'll clear your body of all the calcium, magnesium and zinc that was headed to your bones, as well as the sodium and water. You'll start to have a sugar crash and you'll have got rid of all the water in your body and all the nutrients in your body after you have been to pee.
This is why I'll stick to about 2 a week while working.
