The Doctors: Energy Drink Dangers
The Doctors continued the unexpected, unscripted fun on their “Doctors Unplugged” episode. Their next challenge involved unlocking a cabinet that held the secrets to good health. Dr. Travis Stork read a note about the current “energy crisis” in America.
Energy drinks are more popular than ever, and may seem like a safe way to grab a quick jolt of caffeine. However, although they look unassuming, energy drinks actually contain many hidden dangers.
Of the many energy drink dangers, any given drink can contain a half cup of sugar, high levels of caffeine and unidentified stimulants, just to name a few. The Doctors just recently tackled this subject when they discussed caffeine overdose and its harmful effects on your health.
The Drs: Healthy Energy Drink Alternative
The Doctors took on the challenge of creating a healthy, natural energy drink alternative. Fruits and vegetables are packed with vitamins and other benefits, so there’s no need to turn to something artificial for your next energy fix.
Dr. Jim Sears has a limitless amount of energy already, so Dr Travis coined their creation “the Crazy Jimbo.” Bananas, oranges (with the peel), strawberries, orange juice and mint were just some of the ingredients.
It didn’t turn out to be the most appealing color (kind of a dull mauve), but “the Crazy Jimbo” actually tasted great. Dr. Lisa Masterson and Dr Travis both reported that the drink was delicious. Another successful challenge completed!
