The high levels of caffeine and sugar in energy drinks can be dangerous. Sugar can lead to obesity. While the effects of caffeine can energy and help you feel more awake and alert, large amounts of caffeine could lead to side effects, such as:

  • Trouble sleeping
  • Anxiety
  • Fast heart rate
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Jittery feelings
  • Tremors 
  • Headache

Energy drinks can contain much more caffeine than you can find in a cup of coffee. Although rare, consuming caffeine in high doses can kill. 


To improve your energy levels, instead, do the following:

  • ⚠️ Get enough rest
  • Stay well-hydrated
  • Exercise regularly 
  • Eat a healthy, balanced diet
