BOTTOM LINE: The high sugar content in energy drinks is like liquid candy and the elevated caffeine content makes these drinks a risk to people sensitive to this stimulant. These energy drinks may also be harmful for those with cardiac conditions. Pregnant women and children should avoid drinking energy drinks. Energy drinks will provide a mental and physical performance edge, but it's not due to any special ingredients. You can get the same benefits from simply drinking coffee. Save your money.
