Carbohydrates Side Effects

The carbohydrates in the drink can cause a difficulty in the absorption of nutrients. In "The Side Effects of Energy Drinks" by Low Jeremy, he states, "Since the absorption of nutrients is slower, there is a large chance that the fluid absorption rate of the body is also slower."

Sugar Side Effects

The sugar in a Monster drink is great for energy. However, when the energy is gone, there can be a sudden crash because the sugar is leaving the bloodstream.
