Think twice be­fore drink­ing that en­ergy drink. A new study pre­sented at the 2015 Amer­i­can Heart As­so­ci­a­tion’s Sci­en­tific Ses­sions re­veals that drink­ing one 16-ounce en­ergy drink neg­a­tively af­fects car­dio­vas­cu­lar health, blood pres­sure and stress hor­mone re­sponses in young, healthy adults. Dur­ing the study con­ducted, the tested lev­els of Nor­ep­i­neph­rine − a chem­i­cal re­spon­si­ble for reg­u­lat­ing heart rate and breath­ing in re­sponse to bod­ily stress − were twice as high as nor­mal! This sud­den, in­creased boost of the hor­mone may cause se­ri­ous im­pli­ca­tions and risk of de­vel­op­ing car­dio­vas­cu­lar dis­ease.
