        hi All, the key components in energy drinks are below:

        Energy drinks have a high dosage of Caffeine added sugars, other additives, and legal stimulants such as guarana, taurine, and L-carnitine, Ginseng, Ginkgbo Biloba

        Taurine is an amino acid, which may boost athletic performance and metabolism. It is generally considered safe in doses of about 3,000 mg a day but a 2021 Frontiers in Physiology review suggests 6,000 mg daily could damage your DNA.

        Ginseng – There’s no evidence this East Asian herb does a thing to boost energy and it’s actually been shown to decrease exercise endurance. Since it lowers blood sugar, avoid it if you’re taking diabetes medication.

        Research has linked ginkgo extract to thyroid and liver cancers in mice, but its effects on humans have not been established yet pending further research.

        Less than 3 grams a day is generally considered to be safe; more can lead to stomach upset and a fishy body odor per the National Institutes of Health.

        They usually contain 80–150 mg of caffeine per 8 ounces, which is equivalent to 5 ounces of coffee or two 12-ounce cans of caffeinated soda.

        Energy drinks are aggressively marketed with the claim that these products give an energy boost to improve physical and cognitive performance. However, studies supporting these claims are limited. With the addition of strategic marketing strategies directed at young people with tasty flavours, bright colours and logos with a high sugar content makes a dangerous combination.
