Abstract:  Energy drink consumption has caused worldwide concern in the scientific community and the general public regarding the health effects of these products. Current studies offer data about consumption patterns in America and Europe, but more extensive research is needed to ascertain the potential effects of energy drink consumption, especially among young and healthy individuals. To examine the consequences and health risks of energy drink consumption, related studies were reviewed. Health issues, including elevated blood pressure, palpitations, insomnia, jitters, and nervousness, are primarily associated with high caffeine content. Although more studies examine the effects of highly carbonated and caffeinated products, research determining the health effects of energy drinks is also important. Currently, the evidence regarding the adverse health effects of energy drinks is growing. Unfortunately, the risks of high consumption of energy drinks have not been properly addressed. Thus, these adverse effects may pose a great public health dilemma in the years to come.
