Swallow one can energy drink can greatly affect you heart health and increase the risk of stroke. This amount can increase risk suffer a stroke in 90 minutes and constrict blood vessels.
The University of Texas published a study that showed that this type of drink, whose use is very widespread, can limit the amount of blood that reaches vital organs.
But this is not the first study in the world to warn about this risk. For this study, 44 students from the UTHealth McGovern Medical School were observed, who did not smoke and had a good physical condition of about 20 years.
The researchers looked at the function of the endothelium (the layer of cells lining the surface of blood vessels), an indicator of a heart attack because arteries cannot fully expand.
This function is measured before and 90 minutes after consuming 24 ounces energy drink.
After the study it was found that the arteries had narrowed almost half after consuming energy drink.
Digested drinks contain taurine, caffeine, sugar and herbs that directly affect the function of the endothelium.
The new findings will be presented at the 2018 American Heart Association Scientific Session in Chicago, which will be held November 10-12.
