A recently published study found that consumption of a single caffeinated energy drink significantly increased blood pressure and noradrenaline levels in healthy young adults. The researchers noted these changes could potentially increase the risk of cardiovascular events. The study was published on November 8, 2015 in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
In the study, 25 healthy adults consumed a 16 oz. energy drink (Rockstar, Rockstar Inc.) containing 240 mg of caffeine, 2000 mg of taurine, and extracts of guarana seed, ginseng root, and milk thistle. On a separate day, the same adults consumed a placebo beverage that was similar in color and taste but did not contain caffeine or other stimulants. Measurements taken 30 minutes after the drinks were consumed found that, following ingestion of the energy drink, blood pressure increased an average of 6.4% (about 5 mm Hg), compared to a 1% increase (about 1 mm Hg) following ingestion of the placebo drink. Blood levels of norepinephrine (noradrenaline) increased by 73.6% following ingestion of the energy drink, compared to 30.9% after placebo. Compared to placebo, there was no significant difference in heart rate increase.
The researchers warned that the increases in blood pressure and noradrenaline following ingestion of the energy drink could pose an increased cardiovascular risk, but stated the larger studies are needed.
Some energy drinks contain significantly more caffeine than found in a cup of coffee, and often include additional ingredients such as taurine, L-carnitine, and high amounts of B vitamins, such as niacin and vitamin B6. in a Feb 2018 JAMA report, more than half of young people who have ever consumed an energy drink have experienced at least one adverse reaction, according to a study in Canada published earlier this year. In the U.S. children under the age of six accounted for almost 45% of energy product exposures reported to poison control centers. In adults, consuming just one energy drink has been associated with increased cardiovascular risk and a case of hepatitis has been reported.

Scientists studying nutrition and wellness are discovering that certain food combinations can deliver a signicant nutritional advantage. A report from the U.S. National Library of Medicine says that “the health benefits of fruits and vegetables are from additive and synergistic combinations of phytochemicals.”1 This beneficial synergy is the inspiration for the Rejuveniix formula. Recent studies have also shown that the ingredients in Rejuveniix support clarity of mind, cheerfulness and energy, as well as beneficial antioxidants that contribute to our overall health and wellness.
The way we get our nutrients is also important to our health. Scientists and health experts tell us that it is more important to get smaller amounts of antioxidants from multiple sources rather than mega dosages from just one source. This is because different antioxidants work in different ways in order to perform a variety of functions throughout the body. Rejuveniix’s superfruit blend provides a diverse mix of powerful nutrients in order to deliver superior benefits.
