Increased body weight, a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes, and an increased risk of heart disease are the most significant potential hazards and adverse effects of using Nestle Nutrition’s Boost energy drink. These negative effects, meanwhile, typically don’t show up until after prolonged use.
Like the majority of energy drinks, Boost High Protein Energy Drink uses the effects of caffeine and sugar to provide the consumer an instant boost in perceived energy. 80 milligrammes of caffeine and 18 to 27.25 grammes of sugar are typically included in a 250 millilitre can of Boost; more sugar is specifically associated with higher weight gain because it contains empty calories. Boost 8-ounce cans typically have 240 calories in them.
While Boost isn’t directly connected to either heart disease or diabetes, those with personal or family histories are more likely to develop symptoms due to the medication’s sugar and cholesterol levels. As a result, those with a history should talk to their doctors before starting Boost.
The protein in Boost is made of milk protein, therefore those who are lactose intolerant should be aware of this. To avoid unpleasant side effects including bloating, diarrhoea, excess gas, nausea, and stomach cramps, anyone with this illness should always read the ingredients before ingesting any product.
