Study: Energy drinks could have negative impact on heart function
While energy drinks may give you that boost you need, there is evidence that those beverages may impact your heart function.
Researchers in Germany gave 18 healthy adults MRI scans before and one hour after drinking an energy drink.
The scans revealed differences in heart contraction rates after drinking a can of the beverage, which are high in caffeine.
Fortunately, no changes in blood pressure or heart rate were detected.
Experts say they are still not sure how the change may affect your heart’s function long-term.
More research is planned for the future.
