Energy drinks have a greater impact on health than consuming caffeine by other means, a new study has found.
Researchers found that drinking four cans of a commercially available energy drink caused abnormal changes in the heart’s electrical activity and blood pressure that were absent when volunteers drank a control drink that contained the same amount of caffeine.
Study author Emily Fletcher, of the David Grant USAF Medical Center at Travis Air Force Base in California, said: "We decided to study energy drinks’ potential heart health impact because previous research has shown 75 per cent of the base’s military personnel have consumed an energy drink. And nearly 15 per cent of military personnel, in general, drink three cans a day when deployed, which is more than we studied here."
For the review, 18 members were isolated into two gatherings. One gathering was given 32 ounces (quite recently under a liter) of a financially accessible caffeinated drink, which contained 108 g of sugar and 320 mg of caffeine.
The other gathering was given a control drink containing 320 mg of caffeine, 40 ml of lime juice and 140 ml of cherry syrup in carbonated water.
Analysts observed the members' heart movement and circulatory strain for six hours subsequent to devouring the beverages, with follow-up examinations the following day.
Both gatherings experienced comparable increments in systolic circulatory strain in the wake of drinking the beverages. Notwithstanding, in the control-drink assemble systolic weights had nearly come back to their unique readings following six hours.
"Then again, the individuals who devoured the caffeinated drinks still had a somewhat lifted circulatory strain following six hours," Fletcher said. "This proposes fixings other than caffeine may have some circulatory strain changing impacts, yet this needs encourage assessment."
In view of this preparatory proof, Fletcher stated, "individuals who have hypertension, basic cardiovascular conditions or other medical problems might need to keep away from or utilize alert while expending caffeinated drinks until more is thought about their effect on heart wellbeing."
"This is a little review and further reviews are expected to affirm these outcomes," she included.
Gavin Partington, chief general of the British Soft Drinks Association, told the Daily Mail: 'Caffeine in caffeinated beverages is the same to caffeine in espresso so these discoveries are to some degree odd.
"The European Food Safety Authority most recent supposition affirms the wellbeing of caffeinated beverages and their fixings and along these lines does not give any logical defense to treat caffeinated drinks any contrastingly to the primary supporters of every day caffeine consumption including tea, espresso and chocolate.
"It's additionally worth recollecting that espressos prominent high road chains contain the same or more caffeine than most caffeinated beverages."
