Professional Speaker: To Energy Drink, or Not to Energy Drink?

Keynote speakers know that one piece of fruit is far better for health and wellness than energy drinks.

A professional speaker knows that one piece of fruit is far better for your health and wellness than energy drinks.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being and Peak Human Performance.

Reaching for an energy drink seems like a quick and easy way to boost your energy level, but expert professional speaker Andy Core shares seven reasons why it’s actually a bad idea and that they don’t actually boost brainpower.

  1. One energy drink can contain enough sugar to exceed your daily-recommended intake. All that extra sugar is unlikely to be burned off, and your body will convert it to calories.
  2. Excessive sugar can lead to cavities, increased thirst and diseases like diabetes.
  3. Professional speaker Andy Core reminds us that fizzy energy drinks contain carbonic acid, which is bad for your teeth. If you absolutely must have one, grab a can that’s non-carbonated.
  4. The caffeine content far outstrips one cup of coffee. Side effects can include paranoia, jitteriness and a dangerously high heart rate.
  5. Too much caffeine on a regular basis can also lead to insomnia, headaches, vomiting and seizures.
  6. Mixing it with alcohol can mask the signs of intoxication and lead to an overdose without realizing it.
  7. It’s not as cost and nutrition effective as picking up a banana, going for a walk, or getting a good night’s sleep.

Before you pick up that energy drink, remember what professional speaker Andy Core has to say about them. You can find better and healthier ways to maintain health and wellness in your life without reaching for a can of artificial energy.
