Over the past few decades, the creation of energy drinks formulated to boost your adrenaline and give you a much needed pick-me-up has been on the rise. However, some would question the long-term effects of chronic use on the body. This study examines the findings of over fifty peer-reviewed articles studying the association of energy drinks and mental health issues, focusing on stress, anxiety, and depression.
The study concludes that the majority of the findings were consistent with an association between mental health issues such as stress, anxiety, or depression and chronic energy drink consumption. Although causality was not addressed in the present study, it’s safe to say there is a signification connection between the two variables, chronic energy drink use and mental health issues.
