Sleep loss can affect the basic metabolic functions of storing carbohydrates and regulating hormones. If not regulated the body will not be able to not only produce but also distribute ATP throughout the body. Therefore, causing the body to not have enough energy.
Closing Remarks...
After extensive analysis o the energy drink Red Bull I have concluded that the marketing claims Rhonda presented are indeed true.
