These Are the Most Unhealthy Caffeinated Drinks

According to Peter Bailey, MD, “when caffeine is created artificially and injected into drinks, it can become extremely unhealthy.”. Experts say to avoid these 5 caffeinated beverages. 1. Energy drinks. The average sugar content of an energy drink is 54 grams, an alarming rate that can cause weight gain and poor digestive health, Trista Best, MPH, RD, LD at Balanced One Supplements, via ‘Eat This, Not That!’. 2. Sports drinks. Many sports drinks have started to add caffeine to help exercise performance. Consuming too much caffeine can cause rapid or abnormal heart rhythm, anxiety, upset stomach, heartburn, and increased blood pressure, Allison Gregg, RDN, LD/N Nutritional Consultant at Mom Loves Best, via ‘Eat This, Not That!’. 3. Soda. Soft drinks containing caffeine are a double threat to your health. Not only do they have ridiculous amounts of sugar, but they also supply the body with caffeine unknowingly, Stephen Light, certified sleep science coach, via ‘Eat This, Not That!’. 4. Caffeinated water. Water does not naturally contain caffeine…this becomes problematic as water is then transformed from a natural, hydrating liquid into a liquid with an unnatural substance added, Allison Gregg, RDN, LD/N Nutritional Consultant at Mom Loves Best, via ‘Eat This, Not That!’. 5. Caffeinated lemonade. A high sugar content paired with caffeine can be an unhealthy combination. This can lead to rises in blood sugar, blood pressure, and heart rate, Allison Gregg, RDN, LD/N Nutritional Consultant at Mom Loves Best, via ‘Eat This, Not That!’
