The fact that something is legal doesn’t mean it is good for you. Of course there is no need to preach to college kids when it comes to alcohol and other intoxicants. No wait, you not only have to preach to them, but also to irresponsible corporations who will do anything for a profit.
Anyway this report is only the tip of the iceberg. There many other stimulants/downers that are used in combination endangering the unsuspecting public. The energy drinks industry is doing it, the supplement industry is doing it and the pharmaceutical industry is doing it.
Mixing adaptogens with sedative herbs is a known plague on the supplement industry. Additionally mixing amphetamines with anti-depressants is another dangerous practice by the pharmaceutical industry.
These practices are wide-spread. I am always told that these would all go away if the demand dwindled down. I disagree. Most people using such combos have no understanding of the health effects of their habits. They like the added control over their lives, and they neglect to research the longterm consequences.
If it feels good it must be good for you right? Sometimes but not in this case. As a general rule all stimulants and downers over-tax your resources. They borrow your future adaptation energy for today’s use. Over time this resource debt builds up until you run out of adaptation energy prematurely. I am writing this on my cell phone keyboard but you may contact me if interested in the scientific rundown of how this happens.
