A study of the academics in University of Texas He assured you only took one energizers can increase in just 90 minutes the risk of heart attack or stroke.
As shown by the study, this possibility is due to the fact that the intake of this type of liquids causes that time narrow blood vessels, a situation that can lead to the blood flow to the body's other organs being cut off.
In order to reach this conclusion, the research group studied 44 medical students in the university hospital, depending on three main characteristics: tfor 20 years, not being smokers and classified as "healthy" people.
After that, the managers reviewed the operation endothelium of participants, which corresponds to a layer of cells that feed the blood vessels. This decision was due to an endothelial dysfunction is an indicator of heart disease because the arteries can no longer expand.
How did they do that? The researchers measured the endothelial function of the students before each of them took a 700 ml energy pressure. Then they did the same measurement 90 minutes after they had taken the drink.
The tests were performed one and a half hours after the intake was determined: she could observe the mediated expansion of arterial flow and the internal diameter of the blood vessel had been reduced by half on average.
"As energy drinks are becoming increasingly popular, it is important to study the effects of these drinks on those who drink them often and to better determine what the pattern of safe consumption is," explained John Higgins, professor of medicine at the University of California. McGovern School specified by Daily Mail.
The research team said that this effect on blood vessels would be related to the ingredients in the drinks, among which are sugar, taurin and caffeine, including.
