This study was carried out to ascertain the effect of energy drink and mixture of energy drink with different brands of alcohol on some biochemical parameters. Sixteen (16) male albino rats weighing 120- 160g were divided into four (4) groups. The groups were divided thus: Group 1: Control- feed and water ad libitum, Group 2: 3.75ml/kg Bullet Energy drink only, Group 3: 3.75ml/kg Bullet energy drink + 1ml/kg of 41% alcohol dry gin and Group 4: 3.75ml/kg Bullet energy drink + 1ml/kg of 5.1% alcoholic beer. The experiment lasted for 28 days after which the animals were fasted for 12 hours before they were sacrificed and their blood collected for biochemical analyses. There was a significant increase in body weight of animals in group 2-4 and also the glucose concentration was elevated. The result presented in table 2 showed that there is a statistically significant difference (p<0.05) in the level of ALT and ALP in treatment groups when compared to the control group (1). Also, elevated level of cholesterol and triglycerides were also observed. From this data, we may conclude that there are high risk of constantly taking energy drink alone or in combination with alcohol.
