Energy Drinks Linked To Unhealthy Behaviors in Teenagers

A new study out of Duke University and published in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, links sports and energy drinks to poor health decisions in adolescents.

Sports drinks were "significantly associated" with increased television viewing, while energy drinks were linked to "additional hours per week" of playing video games.

Smoking was also found to be linked to the consumption of energy drinks.
The AAP (American Association of Pediatrics) asserts that energy drinks, meanwhile, should not be consumed as they offer no health benefits and increase risks for overstimulation of the nervous system.
Why not consider BarleyLife® Xtra, Peak Endurance® and Red Rush™ as healthy alternatives to sugary sports and energy drinks?
