Consuming energy drinks with alcohol can also harm your heart health. That’s because both the drinks have their distinct effect on the blood pressure and when combined, may confuse your internal system. According to a 2018 study, the two beverages can lead to a change in the diameter of the blood vessel to a dangerous level. The vessel dilation was on average 5.1 per cent in diameter before the energy drink and later changed to 2.8 per cent, which could increase the risk of acute impairment in vascular function.
Another 2016 study revealed that the combination can lead to a significant increase in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. The drastic change in the blood pressure may be particularly bad for all those already suffering from the problem of high blood pressure.
Fluctuation in the blood pressure on a regular interval can put extra pressure on the heart and may increase the risk of stroke, heart attack and heart disease. Besides, heavy alcohol intake can impact your liver and sleep pattern.
