How long for an energy drink to leave your body?

Energy drinks leave the body at varying rates - although generally, the process can be considered to take around two to three hours. This is quicker than how long it would take for a non-energy drink to completely leave the body. This is due to the main function of energy drinks: To provide the drinker with a temporary burst of energy. For this reason, they are widely used by athletes and sportspeople.

With the wide range of energy drinks on the market today, as expected, they are all different and therefore one type of drink could take longer than another to leave your system. The vast majority of energy drinks are packed with a substance known as glucose, a form of sugar, which is processed by the body and transformed into energy quickly.

Other factors as well as the make-up of a particular energy drink can affect how quickly it leaves the body. These factors include:

• How vigorous the following exercise is
• The quantity of energy drink consumed
• Whether or not other drinks or foods have been recently consumed
• The metabolic rate of the drinker

Some people choose to drink energy drinks as a way of providing themselves with an energy boost in the morning, even if they are not planning to participate in exercise. This can be very detrimental to the health of the drinker, possibly cause weight gain and even heart problems. Energy drinks do not replace healthy, balanced meals and should not be used regularly.

Indeed, energy drinks will take longer to leave the body if exercise does not take place after drink consumption. This is because the body is not utilizing the extra energy the drink provides, so glucose must be transformed into energy that can be stored.
