The primary ingredients of most energy drinks are caffeine and sugar. Many synthetic energy drinks also contain aspartame, the artificial sweetener that has been linked to neurotoxic, metabolic, allergenic, fetal, and carcinogenic effects.
Recent clinical Research studies published in the American Heart Association’s journal found that drinking synthetic energy drinks is linked to a greater risk of stroke and dementia.
