3 Problematic Stimulants that People Should Stop Bingeing on Every DayJul 04, 2022
The human body is built on a foundation of vitamins and minerals. Along with carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Without these nutrients, your body can't synthesize new tissue or generate the cellular energy necessary to move, breathe, and live. Regularly using stimulants creates disruption in this anatomical cycle. Stimulants can even turn toxic when consumed in large or relentless quantities.
Everything in Moderation:
The Alcohol and Drug Foundation explains that “Stimulants are a class of drugs that speed up messages traveling between the brain, and body. They can make a person feel more awake, alert, confident, or energetic. Stimulants include caffeine, nicotine, amphetamines, and cocaine. Long-term use of strong stimulants can have adverse effects.” Here are a few key facts about the disadvantages of common stimulants:
1. Energy Drinks:
Mass-produced/processed energy drinks are packed full of artificial chemicals. Chemicals drain the body of vitamins and minerals. Some energy drinks are so acidic that the body redirects calcium from bones to act as a buffer against the acid. Not only that, but their high sugar content feeds a surplus of calories into the metabolism.
Tea and coffee contain chemical compounds known as tannins. These substances are responsible for the bitter taste of caffeine. When people take too much caffeine, the digestion of tannins has some unintended side effects. Breaking down tannins depletes minerals such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus, iron, and so on. That’s why coffee drinkers get stained and brittle teeth.
Smoking is a bad habit for a number of reasons. One of them being excessive nicotine consumption. Not only is nicotine an addictive substance, it directly impedes blood circulation and heart health. Too much exposure to nicotine can elevate blood pressure, cause narrowing of arteries, and ultimately trigger a heart attack. Combine this with the toxic effects of tobacco, and cigarettes turn into a poisonous cocktail of chemicals.
In the process of boosting energy, overindulgence in stimulants can slowly deprive the body of nutrients. Sometimes, the side effects of stimulants are so strong that symptoms feel like full-blown illness. It’s important to pay attention to the way your body reacts to consumed substances. If stimulants have you feeling down, it’s probably a good idea to cut back.
