Nowadays, most people eat junk food, don’t drink enough water, and don’t sleep enough. This unhealthy lifestyle often causes fatigue, grogginess, stress, and anxiety. In order to boost the energy levels, many people consume energy drinks such as Red Bull, which provides some nutrients like amino acid taurine and some B vitamins, but it also causes some adverse effects for which we should be aware of.

For instance, one can of Red Bull has 110 calories and 27 grams of sugar (sucrose and glucose), and according to the American Heart Association, the maximum amount of daily sugar intake is 37.5g for men (or 9 teaspoons) and 25g (or 6 teaspoons) for women. The excess consumption of sugar causes obesity, tooth decay, and increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and even some types of cancer.

Red Bull also contains aspartame, which is a known neurotoxin, allergenic and carcinogenic compound. This chemical is associated with birth defects, cancer, diabetes, emotional disorders, and epilepsy.

Here is some additional information about aspartame:

 “No less than 3.5 billion cans of Red Bull were sold last year in 143 countries. Yet, questions regarding the safety of Red Bull, as well as other energy drinks, keep cropping up at regular intervals when yet another overzealous energy-addict keels over,” says Dr. Joseph Mercola.

We recommend you not to drink Red Bull if you suffer from any of the following conditions:

1. Anxiety
2. High blood pressure
3. High stress
4. Caffeine sensitivity
5. Blood clotting disorders
6. Chronic fatigue
7. Any cardiovascular disease.

Pregnant women must also avoid Red Bull. You can restore your energy in a natural way if you exercise regularly, eat healthy foods, and eliminate processed sugar from your diet.
