Wellness Worthwhile - Scary Sips!

Every month in 2013 keep a look out for our Wellness Worthwhile Tip from Wild Dunes Resorts' Sand & Sea Salon and Spa Director, Sally Hickerson! This month Sally informs us of a few scary facts about energy drinks.

Whether it is work, kids, relationships or friendships, you are probably a busy bee. No doubt, a lot of you turn to energy drinks to keep up the pace. If you are one of those who does, you should be aware of the health risks.

Each year, hospital emergency rooms are seeing increased numbers of energy drink related neurological and cardiac problems. One of the most alarming causes of these symptoms is the level of caffeine. Because caffeine is an uncontrolled substance, there is no regulation on how much is too much. In fact, most of the products are unclear about how much they contain and have no warnings or precautions. Studies have shown that long term consumption can increase your risk of cardiac arrest and seizures. Scary!

There’s no better way to keep energy up than getting a proper eight hour nights’ rest and eating a well-balanced diet but if you must, try to limit the energy drinks you consume. For your health!
