Energy Drinks

Although energy drinks are available at several outlets on-base and in local retail stores, consumption of energy drinks is strongly discouraged for students engaged in High-Risk Training (HRT) at all times. These beverages can be dangerous when consumed in large quantities or ingested after exercise resulting in such side effects as dehydration, nausea, vomiting, insomnia, headaches, and nervousness. These drinks are loaded with sugar, caffeine, and other ingredients such as ginseng, guarana, and B-Complex vitamins that have not been proven to be conducive to proper hydration in a high-risk training environment.

Coffee and sodas are permitted but should be avoided altogether in hot, humid environments.
