Hi, I'm Jackie Arnett, Registered Dietitian. And this is nutrition drinks and liver health. Nutrition and energy drinks are the biggest selling beverages right now. They're a billion dollar industry and it's because they're so desirable. Endless promises of energy, the convenience, the ease, all with a pop of a can. But problems are arising due to the ramifications that are possible on liver health. There's been severe cases reported and more and more studies been done. Right now, what we know is a lot of the ingredients like Taurine, L-. Carnitine and Guarana are still being studied as far as their effects on liver. So, we don't know for sure. But we do know is that the caffeine in energy drinks is a lot. The FDA allows 71 milligrams for a 12 ounce serving of a soft drink as far as caffeine. But for the supplement business, the FDA does not regulate. And energy drinks are considered a supplement. So, energy drinks typically have about three to five times more caffeine than a soft drink, it's a lot of caffeine. And the problems arise for the liver when there's actual medication interactions. So, for example, a lot of anti-inflammatory drugs can interact with caffeine to cause problems in liver. That's when problems in the liver health can arise. Most people don't tell their doctors that they're taking energy drinks. so the doctors don't know when they're prescribing these medications about the potential interactions. So, you want to make sure you do tell your doctor, if you are consuming a lot of energy drinks. And make sure that it doesn't interfere with medication to protect your liver. But till then, try and get your energy from nutrition and good food, it's just as good.
