Energy Drinks May be Harmful to People with Hypertension


Individuals with high blood pressure or heart disease are being warned to avoid energy drinks, a recent report posted by the Henry Ford Hospital study said.


The study showed that adults without a risk of heart disease or high blood pressure who drank two cans of energy drink a day experienced an increase in their blood pressure and heart rate. The ramifications are that the increase in blood pressure would be harmful to people with a heart-related condition, reports say.


Research seems to clear the way for an opinion that caffeine and taurine levels in energy drinks could be responsible for increases in blood pressure and heart rate.
