So what happens when mixed with milk? Whether it be healthy?
What about mixing Energy drinks with milk?
• Mixing types of drinks with milk generally means increasing the amount of sugar consumed.
For people who are being decreased food intake, so that their blood sugar is low, then it does not matter to him when adding drinks high in sugar into his body. Otherwise, what will happen?
We know the energy drink itself already contains a lot of sugar, plus the effects of caffeine which increases blood sugar, so if they added milk means that we increase the levels of blood sugar in bulk!
• Moreover, there is in milk protein and fat content. Protein and fat content is beneficial to add energy. The path of the content of this milk to increase energy is through the ‘natural’,
I.e. through the intestinal absorption power source and a source of energy for the cells of the body, not through the manipulation of hormones and nerve signals in the brain. Means in general, the content of milk alone is good enough to increase energy without the need to mix it with any type of beverage.
• Furthermore, it is known that one type of energy drinks can cause changes in the form of milk. Milk mixed with drinks is experiencing breakdown and a precipitate is formed at the base of the glass, most likely due to the acidity of the drink. The concern is if it can lead to damage to the nutrients in milk, or disturbances in absorption into the body content of the milk, then mixing is actually detrimental.
Therefore, although energy drinks are sold freely, it does not mean we can drink it without caution. Mix it with other beverages are also not wise, because the difference in the content of energy drinks can also cause changes in fluid conditions that we add.
