Problem
Energy drinks are not as regulated as they should be. Energy drinks contains vast amount of caffeine but also some other ingredients that heightens it as well. CNN claims that certain ingredients that are mixed with each other, increase the levels of caffeine and may not even be shown in nutrition labels. “Taurine, a common amino acid can affect the levels of water and minerals in your blood. Bits of guarana, the plant from the Amazon, are commonly added to energy drinks and already contain caffeine, which can increase a drink’s total caffeine amount” (Howard). These ingredients are the results of what increases one’s blood pressure and eventually leading to bigger problems such as blood getting extremely thick. It then leads to problems to the heart also working much more harder to produce blood and that results with cardiac arrest.

Solution
FDA needs to make much more strict caffeine regulations of energy drinks that are consumed by our people. It is compromised when it is mixed with other ingredients containing caffeine such as guarana.
