Adverse Cardiovascular Events After Ingestion of Energy Drinks

Adverse Cardiovascular Events After Ingestion of Energy Drinks | Nutrition Dos and Don'ts | Scoop.it

Energy drink (ED) consumption has been linked to several adverse event reports, but there is limited data on related cardiovascular (CV) complications.. We searched case reports in peer-reviewed journals from 1980, to 2013, in which an acute CV event was associated temporally with ED consumption.

We identified 14 eligible articles involving 15 cases (5 atrial arrhythmias, 5 ventricular arrhythmias, 1 QT prolongation, 4 ST-segment elevations). Two additional cases of cardiac arrest from our institution are included. Of these 17 cases of ED-related acute CV events (13 male cases; 15 cases aged <30 years, age range 13 to 58 years), only 1 had minor previous cardiac disease. Cardiac investigations did not reveal any predisposing cardiac abnormality in the majority of cases. Of the 11 cases related to a serious event (i.e., cardiac arrest, ventricular arrhythmia, or ST-segment elevations), 5 reported acute heavy ED consumption, 4 reported co-ingestions with alcohol or other drugs, and 2 were found to have a channelopathy. Potential mechanisms of ED-related cardiac events are reviewed. In conclusion, several adverse CV events after consuming ED have been reported in the literature. Although causality cannot be inferred from our series, physicians should routinely inquire about ED consumption in relevant cases, and vulnerable consumers such as youth should be advised that caution is warranted with heavy consumption and/or with concomitant alcohol or drug ingestion.

Energy drinks are not good for your health. They contain excessive amounts of caffeine and potentially-harmful additives and preservatives.

Seth Bilazarian, MD's curator insight, January 26, 5:06 PM

The ingredients in energy drinks present theoretical risk for arrhythmia's.  The risk, however is not born out by this report based on the few cases (17 cases) presented in the literature.  This may be related to poor reporting by clinicians, of events which have a possible or probable linkage to energy drink use,

FROM THE ARTICLE:  As with any food type, or health issue, the key is with diversity and moderation. As part of a balanced, healthy and well-paced eating regime, kale can offer a multitude of benefits, but it can’t singularly shoulder the weight of well rounded, full meals.

Juice boxes: are they really any better than soda? | Food Identity Theft | Nutrition Dos and Don'ts | Scoop.it

You might be surprised to learn that, just like soda, some are sweetened with high fructose corn syrup. Some can be very sneaky, like Kraft’s CapriSun juice drinks. It’s hyped as containing “no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives” and “25% less sugar than leading regular juice drinks,” but has HFCS as the second ingredient after water.  The same goes for Hi-C fruit-flavored drinks, made by Coca-Cola.

Are you getting enough vitamin B12 in your diet? 

more...
Sandi Cornez's curator insight, June 30, 10:20 AM

B-12, one of the B complex vitamins is an essential anti-fatigue vitamin because its function is essential to energy production. from cell formation, to helping produce adrenal hormones.  B-12 works with folic acid to control the production of oxygen-carrying red blood cells and keeps your nervous system healthy by helping your body use iron.

 

Vegetarians and vegans who don't eat animal products are at risk of being B-12 deficient as are some people who do eat animal products and don't get enough of the B-12 as they may not be able to absorb it. For people in these categories and for people over 50 it's recommended to take a B-12 supplement and/or take a B complex every day which will cover your B requirements.

 

Foods that contain B-12 - animal products, seafood, and spirulina (blue-green algae which is a high protein superfood), and nutritional yeast (high in B complex)

 

Read this comprehensive article to learn everything about B-12 from  symptoms to how to treat it.

Vitamin B12 deficiency is more common for vegetarians and vegans. However, above the age of 50, we are all more at risk since we don't absorb as much nutrition from what we eat. Meat, dairy, fish and eggs, tempeh, spirulena, seaweeds and blue algae are all great sources of B12.

Children who had access to at least one healthy food outlet within 800 meters (about half a mile) of their home had a 38 percent decreased risk of being overweight or obese compared to those who did not. Each additional outlet for healthy foods within that distance was associated with a 19 percent reduction in risk of being overweight or obese.
