Energy drinks usually contain high amounts of caffeine. Besides caffeine, they contain large amounts of sugar and other additives and supplements. Moreover, these drinks are extremely acidic, ranging from 1.5 pH to 3.3 pH.
This acidic environment can wear down the enamel and also expose the teeth to bacterial infections and decay. Even sugar-free energy drinks have equally negative effects as they are also highly acidic therein acting as a gateway to bacterial attacks.
Besides being harmful to oral health, energy drinks also affect your overall health. Energy drinks overwork your heart and cause spikes in blood pressure levels. They can even affect your appearance leading to acne outbreaks or dull skin.
