So many people across America drink these, yet so many people across America die every year from Caffeine intoxication. I have an irregular heartbeat, so I’ve never consumed these drinks. I think people are always looking for reasons to stay awake at work or crushing it, to study for a big test in school, without fully understanding what goes into these drinks. I received this can the other day from a friend, while I was shopping in the store.
She said here put this on your site, so after researching everything there is to know about Monster Energy Drink, I can finally do that. I choose the picture above to (kinda) go with what I have found out about these Energy drinks. Please be seated when reading this, thanks. I will get straight to the post.
MONSTER ENERGY INGREDEINTS:
Natural Flavors (Doesn’t say what kinds)
Color added (Doesn’t say what color dye they used, this could be a problem)
Panax Ginseng Extract
Caffeine (160mg per can)
Niacinamide (primarily used for Acne treatment)
Sucralose ( used to treat panic disorder, depression, Alzheimer disease and Autism)
Inositol (used for treating:Schizophrenia, ADHD, Panic disorder and Hair growth)
Guarana Extract (Caffeine)
Pyridoxine Hydrochloride ( VIT B6)
Cyanocobalamin (man-made Vit B12)–Also in the same family as CYANIDE–WOW
25 additives and chemicals in this energy drink, I had my work cut out for me, with all these dangerous and additive chemicals in this drink. I just can’t see how the people that makes these drinks aren’t sued or have not removed them from the store shelves, for all this misinformation that’s on the can. First off you can’t just say color added to anything without clarifying what color.
If someone drinks this that’s allergic to blue color dye or red color dye, then what. Because they didn’t think to clarify on their products important information, then why wouldn’t that be a suit against negligence within the company. I am profoundly disturbed for you, (my friends) at my findings that;s in this Energy Drink, this is for my friends out there everywhere, please for your health, stop drinking these.
Get more sleep by going to bed earlier and eat healthy food products, that will give you natural energy. You don’t need these to have energy, I will show you other ways to achieve the desired energy you need in order to make through the day. I have one more thing to say about the people that makes this Energy drink, before I post that findings.
At the bottom of the can It states this, Quoted: ( CONSUME RESPONSIBILY: NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CHILDREN, PEOPLE WITH SENSITIVITY TO CAFFEINE, PREGNANT WOMEN OR WOMEN WHO ARE NURSING). If the product clearly states it’s not recommended for children, then why does the can have Call Of Duty X box game logos all over the can. If they cared about children not drinking these dangerous products, then why have children games advertising on your cans. SO many companies make false assumptions in their products, to think someone wouldn’t catch them in their false claims. I wanted to share with you, about the misinformation on the can.
L-CARNITINE: Side effects are: Nausea, Upset Stomach, Heartburn, Seizures. Can cause your breath to smell fishy. My research states, if you have seizure disorder or have had seizures in the past stop drinking or consuming anything with this additive in it. If you have Thyroid issues don’t use this additive, also the drug Warfarin interacts with this additive. My research does state this drug is used to treat patients with these health issues: Heart failure, kidney disease, chest pain, infertility. This drug/additive has good and bad uses and side effects. Just use with caution.
BENZOIC ACID: This drug is used to prevent infection caused by bacteria, also is used to treat burns, insect bites. My research states when this is used in foods it’s mildly toxic. This drug has been linked to attention disorders in children and adult, also can cause sever Asthma problems in adults and children. The side effects for this drug is: Eye damage, rash or burning feeling. Irritation of the lungs, shortness of breath.
According to research. It states to use extreme caution when handling and use in the outdoors for good airflow. Seek medical attention if exposed to your skin, also stated if you inhale this chemical to seek medical attention. The extended statement shows types of hazards for this chemical are: Explosion, Exposure and skin contact. Just to add a note for you, this is almost the same thing as Benzoyl Peroxide. Something to think about.
NIACINAMIDE: Side effects for this additive are:Confusion, swelling of the tongue, red rashes on your skin. Dizziness, leg cramps, and insomnia. This additive is Synthetic and is made form Coal tar, Ammonia, and Formaldehyde (Embalming fluid). This chemical is used to treat Acne.
My research also states this can cause your blood sugar to rise, causing insulin problems. If you have issues with your gallbladder or liver diseases don’t use this chemical. This additive is a risky chemical, use with extreme caution.
I feel somewhat confused, because the reason all these chemicals in Monster Energy Drinks are supposed to be to make you alert to get through your day without falling asleep at our jobs. I think I have figured out the reasoning behind adding so many chemicals that promote and demote health. Because for one thing it’s a lot cheaper to use man-made chemicals rather than healthy additives and if one additive makes you sick then the other additive will counter-act with that additive to equal the side effect out.
Meaning if I drink A cup of coffee, because I like the taste yet it has me wired, so I take some sleeping pills to equal the effects the coffee has on my body. This is the same thing this drink is doing, with the dangerous chemicals in it, they will interact with each other and try to cancel the side effects from one to the other out.
Can you believe, if you’re drinking this drink that is has additives in it that has Embalming fluid in it or has a chemical that’s used to treat Acne. What are they thinking?. About the can promoting children, by having x box and ps4 games on their can, yet saying not recommended for children. Adding flavorings to the can, yet not saying what those flavorings are. Plainly stating just Color Added, yet doesn’t say what color was added, It’s complete disregard for your safety and mine.
I truly hope this research has helped you understand this energy drink a little more, I have posted the additives so if you have a question about any of them, you can look them up to help yourself out in the ongoing struggles we face in society with the harmful chemicals in our foods/drinks.
