Are Energy Drinks Safe?

cans of enefgy drinksDon’t use Energy Drinks to improve your performance

The energy drinks you see on store shelves – especially the tiny “shots” at the convenience store that promise to get rid of your “2:30 feeling” – are pumped full of synthetic caffeine. 

This “fake” caffeine does not come from any of Mother Nature’s sources. It comes from a chemistry lab. The fake stuff is potent and much cheaper than the real thing. But the synthetic chemicals are often a highly toxic brew you don’t want in your body including:

  • Trichloroethylene (TCE) – a chlorinated hydrocarbon commonly used as an industrial solvent. It’s so powerful, the Air Force uses it to clean jet engines. Banned in Europe as a known cancer-causing chemical, it is perfectly legal to use in the United States.
  • Sodium cyanide – a highly toxic, colorless salt used in gold mining to strip gold from rock.
  • Sulfuric acid – a strong mineral acid used in car batteries, ore processing, fertilizer manufacturing and oil refining.
  • Benzene – a known cancer-causing chemical used as an industrial solvent and in the production of drugs, plastics, synthetic rubber and dyes.

Please read labels. Be careful. Stick with natural substances as much as possible and come in for a chiropractic “tune up” for a real energy boost.
