Some Energy Drink Ingredient Amounts Unknown

Doctors want to see federal regulation for popular energy drinks.  Researchers say the typical drink is loaded with sugar and caffeine, but the quantities of other ingredients, such as herbal stimulants, are often unknown.  Doctors are concerned how those ingredients may combine with caffeine to affect heart rate, blood pressure, and even mental state.  They are particularly concerned about the sale of energy drinks with alcohol.
