How energy drinks can boost lethargy

Dion Parratt, who hails from the UK, was in her first year of secondary school when she decided to go on a diet. Like most restrictive food plans, the decision had an adverse effect on her body, leaving her lethargic and tired. But, at the tender age of eleven, she literally stopped eating which led to malnourishment and as a result, excessive fatigue became part and parcel of her every day life. To counteract her lack of verve and vitality, she began to drink vast quantities of energy drinks to compensate for her lack of stabilizing nutrients. It wasn't long though, before her need for energy drinks increased and an addiction developed. For the next four years, Dion found herself craving energy drinks, consuming increasingly larger amounts as time passed.

However, Dion did not understand the addictive nature of caffeine based drinks, believing wholeheartedly that they were harmless. If advertising campaigns and marketing strategies are to be trusted, the consumption of energy drinks is publicly promoted as a healthy alternative to traditional food supplements. Yet, how many of us truly understand how energy drinks affect the metabolism, let alone know the contents of the average energy drink sold in every supermarket around the globe? Are they really the composite substitute for a well-balanced nutritional diet and at what point do they actually stop giving us energy and start taking it from us instead? As Dion sadly confesses herself, after seven years of abusing energy drinks, the toll it has taken on her physique is all too evident.
