companies sell the supplements to popular & # 39; Insta-gamers & # 39; who will promote the product to their young followers.

A cup from the company of the Sneak company contains 150 mg of caffeine.
& # 39; GG can last between 5-6 hours! The best thing is … unlike sugary canned energy drinks, there is NO CRASH, & # 39; reads the GG website.

Australian medical association President Dr. ir. Tony Bartone slapped the companies for promoting unhealthy behavior and endangering children's lives with long-lasting effects of dehydration, dizziness, palpitations and anxiety, he told the Daily Telegraph.
