Red Bull Amber Edition Ingredients

The formula of Red Bull Energy Drink contains a unique combination of high quality ingredients.

Caffeine

Caffeine was widely used by ancient civilisations. It was traditionally consumed from natural sources like tea, coffee, cacao beans and cola nuts and appreciated for its stimulating effects on the human body

Caffeine is naturally present in more than 60 plants and is contained in many foodstuffs such as coffee, tea and chocolate.

Whether present in natural sources or in Red Bull Energy Drink your body processes caffeine the same way.

One of caffeine’s primary sites of action in the human body is a stimulating effect on cognitive functions.

One 8.4 fl. oz. can of Red Bull Energy Drink contains 80 mg of caffeine.

B-group vitamins

Red Bull contains Vitamin B6, B12, Niacin and Pantothenic acid.

There are two types of vitamins: fat soluble and water soluble. Red Bull contains water-soluble vitamins. Water-soluble vitamins do not get stored as much in the body as fat-soluble vitamins. Instead, they circulate through the blood plasma. Whatever the body does not use is released. Red Bull contains the water-soluble B-group vitamins niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), vitamin B6 and vitamin B12.

Sugars

Red Bull Energy Drink is made with real sugar.

Sugars are well known carbohydrates and can be found in many foodstuffs from fruits, fruit juices to other beverages including energy drinks. Carbohydrates are basic nutrients consumed in the daily diet, and whether found in fruits or Red Bull Energy Drink, your body processes these sugars the same way.

One 8.4 fl oz can of Red Bull Energy Drink contains 27 g of sugars. This total amount is in the same range of sugar level found in an equivalent amount of apple juice.

There is also Red Bull without sugars: Red Bull Sugarfree and Red Bull Zero.

Did you know?

The amount of sugars in a can of Red Bull Energy Drink is comparable to the sugar level in an equivalent amount of apple juice. One 8.4 fl oz can of Red Bull Energy Drink contains 27 g of sugars.

Taurine

Taurine is an amino acid, naturally occurring in the human body and present in the daily diet.

Taurine is found in high concentrations in muscle, brain, heart and blood. A person weighing ~154 Ibs has approximately 70 g of taurine distributed throughout their body. Put another way, a ~154 Ibs person naturally already has in their body 70 times the amount of taurine contained in one can of Red Bull Energy Drink.

Taurine is also contained in various foodstuffs like scallops, fish, poultry and most infant formulas.

Did you know?

The human body contains 70 times more taurine than one 8.4 fl oz can of Red Bull.
