Energy drinks in moderation ?

User Profile
Are energy drinks safe to consume long term in moderation? When I ask that, I mean energy drinks with zero caffeine and zero sugar. I have heard an extensive amount of concerns people have had and I don't know if they are just myths or if safe consumption of energy drinks is unknown at this point? To be more clear, when I safe "safe consumption" I'm talking like no more than one a day maximum. I like these beverages and I want to consume them safely and in a responsible manner that won't be detrimental to my health.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Sticking to natural products for energy is wiser. Although controlled intake on and off for long time is fine.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
