Conclusion: In our lab we expected that the consumption of a whole energy drink would raise an individual’s blood pressure and increase their heartrate. Each of our 4 group members participated in this experiment by consuming an energy drink and recording blood pressure and heart rate before consumption and at time intervals after consumption of 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, and 45 minutes. From the recorded data, no noticeable increases, in heartrate or blood pressure, were observed. Our hypothesis is not supported through the experimentation of this lab. We are able to conclude from our studies that consumption of energy drinks does not have a significant effect on cardiovascular function. Systolic blood pressure of test subjects: Nick, Mario and Brody before the trials were about 2mmHg less compared to the systolic blood pressure 30 minutes after consumption of the Redbull energy drink. This is deemed insignificant because test subject Taylor experienced a drop of 4mmHg in her blood pressure 30 minutes after consumption. For improved results on the effect of Redbull consumption on the cardiovascular system, I believe that tests should be done in a controlled environment where test subjects are required to stay in a room, preventing any reason for their heartrate and blood pressure to naturally increase or decrease. Time intervals for data recording could also be extended to an hour, two hours, and even three hours.

The recent growth in the energy drink market across the United States has created a buildup of curiosity surrounding its success. The four core players in this highly competitive industry are Monster, Red Bull, 5-hour Energy, and Rockstar. These companies were established in the 1990’s and early 2000’s and have formed an industry that produced over $12 billion in 2012. There are multiple explanations for the success of these four energy giants. The market has proven its dynamic nature…

Costing Assumptions and Sources of Information
The energy drink firms compete in a monopolistic market structure. This is where suppliers differentiate their products in order to have some kind of power and share in the market. Therefore it is very important for me to consider the market structure of energy drinks when deciding the costs and selling price of my new energy drink.
I used the costing guidelines…
Energy drinks have become increasingly popular in recent years as people rely on them for artificial energy for physical performance and even cognitive function. Manufacturers claim that these drinks improve physical endurance, reaction speed, and even concentration. But is this really true? The main ingredients of these energy drinks are caffeine, sugar, taurine, and glucuronolactone. Companies like Monster and Red Bull state that the stimulating effects of these drinks are due…

Consequences of Alcohol and Energy Drinks: Mix More for Danger
Alcohol mixed with energy drinks has become a prominent social activity in the consumption trend which increases concern for potential personal and physical consequences. In account of public concern and safety for young people, the alcohol expectancy has been accessed in various studies to determine the relationship of the consumption of alcohol to the underlying issues of alcohol-related consequences…
are six forms of energy:
Chemical energy is essential to bond atoms together and when these bonds are broken the energy is unconstrained. Fuel and food are forms of stored chemical energy.
Heat energy within the body is created from the movement of the atoms from inside the body as moving particles product heat. This energy can be caused by friction of two objects and it will cause a change in temperature and will affect any form of the matter.
Sound energy is the movement…
natural health industry is the use of coco water as an energy drink. Coconut water, locally known in the Philippines as buko juice, is the liquid found inside young, green coconuts. The coconut’s many benefits have long been acknowledged in the Philippines, since the country is abundant in such crop.
However, the idea to use it as an energy drink took root somewhere else. In the United States, the use of coconut water as an energy drink has become a hundred-million dollar industry.…
