AMP ENERGY DRINK SIDE EFFECTS:
One of the main ingredients in Amp Energy Drinks is the sweetener, high fructose corn syrup. Consuming too much high fructose corn syrup will make your waistline grow, putting you at risk of becoming overweight and possibly obese. Obesity is associated with many health issues including heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and some forms of cancer.
Elevated Insulin Levels:
Elevated insulin levels are another side effect of consuming too much high fructose corn syrup, over time it can also elevate your insulin to dangerous levels. Elevated insulin levels can lead to diabetes, but it can also raise your risk of developing arthritis and heart disease.
The high sugar plus caffeine intake causes your blood sugar level to increase rapidly, which causes your pancreas to work harder to produce the correct amount of insulin. As the insulin does its job, blood sugar levels begin to decline, and you are left feeling weak, exhausted and lethargic. In most cases, you have less energy than before you consumed the Amp Energy Drink.
Amp Energy Drinks can contain between 29 and 72g of sugar in a single can. Sugar is a significant energy source for damaging bacteria that can generate plaque on your teeth. As plaque builds up on the surface of the teeth, tooth decay occurs, resulting in cavities and other dental problems.
Overconsumption of AMP Energy Drinks may also lead to:
- Myocardial infarction
- Cerebral vasoconstriction
- Increased sweat excretion
- Affected blood pressure
- Psychotic conditions
- Kidney failure
- Abdominal pain
