Electronic academic database of Cochrane, PubMed, CINAHL, and MEDLINE were searched for relevant studies. A systematic review of English articles published from December 1988 to December 2020 was conducted. All study design was included. A Prisma-flow diagram was applied. Nutritional ingredients, clinical parameters from urine and blood reported kidney function were summarized. The outcomes were condensed into four main interests: ingredients of energy-drinks, intensity and duration of ingestion, and ethical issue.
