Abstract: Drinks are common and alternative sources of energy and vitamins among all ages, but are sometimes associated with several health challenges. This work studied the phytochemical contents of Instant Powder drinks (Tang, Amila, Nutri-C, Eve cola, Sari- C and Kool 2go) and Energy drinks (Power Horse and London best) and the effects of their consumption on some biochemical parameters of male albino rats. The phytochemical screening of the drinks was carried out using standard methods. Total of forty- five male albino rats divided into nine groups of five rats per group were fasted daily for 12 h before oral administration of the tested drinks for 15 days, based on daily water intake of laboratory rodents. Animals were monitored for signs of toxicity and were sacrificed after 24 h of completion of the treatment. Blood samples were collected for biochemical examinations. Serum biochemical indices such as glucose, alanine amino tranferanses (ALT), aspartate amino transferase (AST), alanine phosphate (ALP), albumin (ALB) and total protein (TP) were evaluated. The tested drinks contain carbohydrate and lack many relevant phytochemicals. The administration of the drinks significantly (p<0.05) raised the body weight of Amila and Sari - C treated rats and caused abnormal elevation of blood glucose of Tang exposed rats. However, rats that were treated with Kool 2go, Sari - C and London best experienced a significant (p<0.05) increase in their liver enzymes. In conclusion, prolong intake of drinks such as Amila, Sari- C, Kool 2go, London Best and Eve cola should be avoided as this may cause damages to tissues including liver and pancreas.
