Most people turn to reading, listening to music, taking energy drinks, or mediation in order to relax and deal with mental fogs. However, did you know that some of them negatively affect your health?
A woman named Mary Alwood, from England, was constantly consuming Red Bull in order to deal with her busy schedule. Her life was a kind of chaos and she needed an energy-booster in order to finish everything on time.
First, she started with 1-2 cans a day. Her tolerance grew over time and she ended up taking more than 20 cans a day. She was wearing size 16 when she stared drinking Red Bull. After some time, her size was 24 and soon she ended up in a hospital because of unbearable liver pain.
The MRI scan showed that her liver was two times bigger than the normal size. The doctors believed she was an alcoholic. However, she never drank. After a thorough investigation, the doctors concluded that the high sugar content in those energy drinks caused fat build up in her liver. There were also 2 fibrous lamps with one having the size of a grape and the other big as satsuma.
Needless to say, Mary stopped drinking Red Bull and stared consuming 6.5 liters of water on a daily basis. She had been experiencing symptoms like mood swings and shakes, but things soon worked out and she managed to gain back her original size.
According to Mary, she didn’t care about the adverse side effects of Red Bull and desperately needed it, as it served as heroine for her. Now, she wants to spread the word about this and make people understand that Red Bull works the same way as nicotine and alcohol do.
Even if you are not fan of Red Bull, there are other foods and drinks with high sugar content, such as tomato sauce, dried fruit, canned soup, yogurt, salad dressing, and granola bars. Although alcohol is the major cause of fatty liver, sugar works the same way, storing fat in the liver. Moreover, it also increases the risk of diabetes, obesity, and development of “benign” and cancerous tumors. Moreover, they pose diabetes and obesity risks that come with other complications.
There are so many natural ways to boost your energy.
