Energy Drink Safety: The Good, the Bad, the Ugly according to WheatgrassLove

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Energy products are once again making headlines. For the third time this month the FDA has released information about 18 deaths and over 150 adverse reactions that may have been caused by the popular energy drinks Red Bull, Monster Energy, Rockstar Energy, and 5-Hour Energy. These products are labeled as dietary supplements, they are not required to provide consumers the levels of caffeine or other dangerous ingredients in them.

Alternative products with no adverse effects do exist while boosting energy and enhancing mental acuity. They are based on wheatgrass, a super-food known for its oxygenating properties while providing essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals.  "Any time you can avoid significant amounts of caffeine, it's to your advantage," says Dr. Dominick Addario MD, Professor of Health Sciences, University of California San Diego School of Medicine. "Excessive caffeine can cause many unpleasant effects- nervousness, irritability, muscle tremors- to name a few. People want to feel more awake and alert in their busy lives, but it's crucial that supplements be safe. Products containing wheatgrass with minimal caffeine are much safer."

WheatgrassLove has been providing consumers with safe effective products since 1997. A company spokesperson explains, "Wheatgrass has proven health benefits. Our product Revv Instant Energy, a chewable wafer that delivers all the benefits of pure wheatgrass; offers a safe, effective alternative for people in need of energy without adverse side effects," he adds. "You won't find our products on these FDA reports."
