Do you want to know what happens to your body after drinking an energy drink?
The first 10 minutes after drinking an energy drink you start to absorb the caffeine into your bloodstream, which makes your body respond by increasing your heart rate and blood pressure.
At around 15-45 minutes the caffeine levels will peak and you will feel more alert and your concentration has improved.
At 30-50 minutes after finishing your energy drink your body will have fully absorbed the caffeine and your liver will then react by absorbing more sugar. After an hour you’ll may suffer a ‘sugar crash’, which is caused by the sugar levels dropping in your bloodstream sue to the effects of the caffeine breaking down.
Finally after 12 hours for most people the caffeine will have been removed from the bloodstream, and if you drink energy drinks regularly then you will get withdrawal symptoms such as headaches, irritability and even constipation.
Think twice before downing your next quick caffeine and sugar fix!
