I think that it is not safe to take overdose this type drink. It is harmful for our body. We should take fresh fruit juice.

You hit it right, as for me, any energy drink is somehow bad for the health. Though it wont kill you but it is better to stay away from it. Your response is highly appreciated.

I think energy drink is bad when you consumes it all the time. Yes, once in a while is ok, just to give a little boost. I tried an energy drink before when I took this really important whole day exam. I had one small bottle during lunch break and I have to admit it really helped me with the afternoon part of the exam. I did not feel sleepy at all and my mind was active enough. However, after the exam, I felt very tired, as if I had no energy left. So what's the best thing to do? Rest, right, until I feel refreshed again. Not have another energy drink. If I did, the cycle would not end. Take care!

I don't like energy drinks at all. I have tried them and I just can't take the taste. It taste funny. However, I do know some people who are addicted to these types of energy drinks. Quite frankly it scares me because you see them all jumpy and when it's weaing off it's like they have to have another one right away. Although some promote that some types of energy drinks are good for energy and health I still wouldnt take it. One of my friends would drink up to 10 energy drinks all day just to keep her up during work hours. When she got pregnant she had to STOP drinking it. Now she's more tired and she's lazy cause she kept relying on the energy drinks makes her not want to do anything around the house or for herself. SO I wouldn't recomment it.

I don't ask myself such question because I simply avoid such drinks. It's better to keep your body working with natural means (sleep enough, eat enough), than boost it every time using energy drink. I am pretty sure that there are no safe energy drinks on the market and that in one or another way they can harm our health.

There are many problems, both long term and short term, with energy drinks when ingested without thought to moderation. In the short term, energy drinks put you on a short term 'high' that attempts to fool your body awake, and once that high is gone, your body is worse for wear and feels more tired - no substitute for adequate rest and proper diet and exercise. Long term, your body begins to require these short term fuels in order to function, putting your body out of sync with reality - causing headaches and fatigue when you don't have them, limiting focus and promoting a jittery feeling when you do. Your body also develops a tolerance over time to the ingredients of these energy drinks. That is not to say that if you need a boost once in a great while to get you through the remainder of the day, that energy drinks are bad - again, they're no substitute for diet and exercise.
