Bel Marra Health, well known for offering high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, supports a series of recent reports that show the impact of energy drinks on sleep quality.
According to a recent medical report in the journal Innovations in Clinical Neuroscience, there may be certain common food items and drinks that increase the likelihood for an individual to develop insomnia. This informative article presented findings based on a thorough screen of reports released in the past 11 years regarding sleep problems such as insomnia. The proponents of the study wanted to determine the extent of information that has been published on a common drink that society has been using for a couple of decades, namely the energy drinks that are often used to increase one’s alertness during the day.
Energy drinks are beverages that were designed to give the consumer a rapid boost in the level of energy, allowing extra strength and alertness during the day. These energy drinks were initially introduced in Europe in the late 1980’s and were later marketed in the United States in the late 1990’s. These beverages contain high amounts of caffeine, which is a stimulating alkaloid derived from the coffee plant. Energy drinks also contain L-carnitine, which is responsible in the release of energy from metabolic reactions in the body.
The results of the extensive screen of 838 research reports in the past 11 years showed that energy drinks may serve a person’s need for a rapid treatment or fix to keep awake for a certain event such as examination or gathering, yet the effects of these beverages often stay on until the evening, when a person has completed his or her task and would want to then to sleep and rest. The use of energy drinks on a more frequent basis may also result in a prolonged effect of wakefulness, which may eventually result in insomnia.
The authors of the medical report showed that the general use of energy drinks to fulfill the daily tasks at work or school may temporarily help an individual, yet when these beverages are used for an extended period of time, one’s sleep quality may also suffer. More importantly, the quality of life of the individual may also deteriorate due to the prolonged use of stimulant-rich energy drinks that prevent quality sleep.
Spokesperson for Bel Marra Health Dr. Victor Marchione says, “Treatment of sleep disorders in an individual who is constantly using energy drinks may also be pointless because this the presence of caffeine in the body may have already imparted some psychological effect on the individual.”
CEO of Bel Marra Health Jim Chiang also commented on the results saying, “It is therefore important to know if a certain lifestyle behavior is influencing one’s quality of sleep each day.”
