Energy drinks are commercially manufactured beverages that contain a blend of amino acids, vitamins and the most widely consumed stimulant drug caffeine. Other varieties of energy drinks may also contain ginseng root extract or the caffeine-rich guarana extract, which is a fruit native to South America. Sometimes marketed as sports drinks, these beverages have become widely available that even children can purchase them easily. While no doubt effective in giving instant energy boost, these drinks should be avoided due to their potential ill effects on health.
