Maybe not the best, but not at all a bad idea for advertising an energy drink. Imagine Viy pulling a jar from behind … and he no longer needs any dark forces.
But what about the driver at the wheel, if there are no more forces, the eyes themselves are closed, and just a stone's throw away: don’t cuss on the side of the road, like a driven horse? It’s good, of course, if you have a thermosock with coffee or strong tea. But the most modern remedy is, of course, an energy drink! I swallowed - and at least dances … Have you ever wondered what is mixed there?

[/ caption] Scientists have been struggling for a long time to develop all kinds of "power engineers". Astronauts, military, dispatchers, drivers, finally, their work is associated with increased responsibility, requires special endurance and performance. And here are some of the "secret" once know-how are now publicly available - they are advertised and sold freely. Such a product is popular mainly among young people: there are not enough hours in the day, and they are not used to counting strength yet, and then I swallowed my eyes “for five rubles”! But where does the “magical” energy come from and where does the dream go? And most importantly, is it not harmful to health to drink this? So we decided to check it out. In large stores they bought 11 items of the “magic” drink and sent for examination.

[/ caption] Many people think that "energy" is enclosed in a jar. It turns out that this is not entirely true. The contents of the can are rather the key to the door of the internal reserves of the human nervous system, but its possibilities are not unlimited. In other words - the jar does not give energy, it sucks it out of you. Energy drinks, according to experts, relate to caffeine-based tonicity agents - the same that is contained in coffee. Like any stimulant, caffeine depletes the nervous system. The effect of it lasts on average from three to five hours - after which the body needs a break. An invigorating elixir will not replace sleep!

[/ caption] The composition of some drinks includes guarana - a Mexican plant, it also has caffeine. But, unlike coffee, the energy sector has a complex of vitamins and glucose. One jar of an invigorating drink contains about a daily dose of vitamins. They do not increase efficiency, their main function is nutritional. Glucose is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream, incorporated into oxidative processes, and delivers energy to the muscles, brain, and other vital organs.

[/ caption] Another difference between power engineers: caffeine in them is present in its pure form and is not connected, like in coffee, with other substances that soften its effect. By the way, there is more caffeine in packaged tea than in instant coffee, but it is associated with tannin substances that significantly weaken its effect.
And finally, almost all energy drinks are carbonated, which accelerates their impact - this is the third difference from coffee.
By the way, more about caffeine. About 15% of the people living on our planet are indifferent to caffeine. It can even cause them a backlash. Snoring in coffee houses and there's nothing to be done. In general, according to the perception of caffeine, we are divided into three groups: low-, medium- and highly susceptible (see table). So, food industry workers, caring about the safety of invigorating drinks, in theory, should be guided precisely by the "weak" part of the population. Not without reason on some packages a warning: “No more than two cans per day!”.
So we come to the question of the norm. Everything is good in moderation! In caffeinated soft drinks for hygiene requirements should be no more than 150 mg / l of caffeine. For energy, an exception was made - 400 mg / l. Experts suspect: such "generosity" was shown to let a foreign manufacturer enter our market. But at the same time it is worth knowing what threatens the excess energy.
1. Do not exceed the daily dose of caffeine - these are approximately two jars of the average energy drink.
2. Taking more than two cans in a row can harm your health: the body’s resources are already exhausted, and therefore, instead of the desired effect, you will experience side effects.
3. At the end of the action, energy the body needs rest to restore resources.
4. Do not use after playing sports - both of these increase pressure. Who knows what the safety margin of your circulatory system is?
It’s strictly contraindicated to “indulge” in energy with hypertension, diseases of the cardiovascular system, glaucoma, sleep disturbance, increased irritability and sensitivity to caffeine. Do not quench your thirst with an energy drink in anticipation of offspring. Children and the elderly, of course, also, no, no!
In case of an overdose, side effects are possible: tachycardia, psychomotor agitation, nervousness, depression. Caffeine is a medicinal substance, and you need to treat it like a medicine - with all caution. It is removed from the blood after 3-5 hours, and even then half. And if before that you had been drinking tea and coffee all day? So consider the permissible dose … Maybe it's better to take a nap on the sidelines?
A cup of coffee (100 ml) contains an average of 80–115 mg of caffeine.
A cup of instant coffee (100 ml) - 65 mg.
Tea (100 ml) - 19-30 mg.
Tea from disposable bags (100 ml) - 23–40 mg.
Cocoa / chocolate (100 ml) - 4–5 mg.
As part of drugs containing caffeine, from 7 to 200 mg per 1 tablet.
The lethal dose for humans is about 10 g (approximately 100 cups of coffee).
Caffeine is rapidly absorbed and evenly distributed throughout all tissues and organs, easily penetrates the blood-brain barrier and placenta.
