Bang Energy Caffeine And Ingredients (Detailed Information)

From the makers of Redline, Bang is the extreme energy source that comes with a high caffeine dose. Considering the level of caffeine and other ingredients, it’s evident that this drink is only suitable for those who need intense stimulation. 

The best part about this beverage is its lack of sugar and carbohydrates. So, if you’ve any form of sugar sensitivity, it might be worth considering.

This article intends to provide you with an overview of what ingredients go into Bang. Additionally, I will explain how much of this drink is safe to drink per day. 

Let’s dive into it!

Ingredients 

Here’s what goes into each 16 fl.oz. can:

  • Sodium benzoate
  • Carbonated water
  • Citric acid
  • Caffeine (300 milligrams)
  • Sucralose (artificial sugar)
  • Calcium chloride
  • Calcium disodium 

Vitamins

EAAs

  • Valine
  • Lysine
  • Threonine

  • Isoleucine

As you can see, this beverage has a long list of ingredients. It’s important to note that caffeine is the only nootropic here. Otherwise, there are other sources of caffeine in supplements that people have no idea of.

Is Bang a High-Caffeinated Beverage?

Containing 300 mg of caffeine, Bang is one of the high-caffeinated drinks.

Bang energy falls in the beverage category that provides stimulation. It’s worth noting that it’s not as intense as Redline drinks. In every 16 fl.oz of serving, you get 300 milligrams of this nootropic. 

If you don’t take this much caffeine usually, there are chances you’ll end up getting crashes. Therefore, you should always choose caffeine levels based on your tolerance. Let me tell you here that this beverage has more caffeine than what you get in two cups of coffee. 

As per FDA recommendations, you should never go beyond 400mg of caffeine. Keep in mind that you should only take this amount if you’re physically fit. Bang label clearly says that too much caffeine can cause the following health problems:

  • Sleeplessness
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Irritation
  • Dehydration
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Dependence
  • Tiredness

Since the stimulant effects of Bang stay for at least 8 hours, you should take it based on your sleep timing in mind. 

Caffeine Variants in Bang

Bang comes with two caffeine variants. One is called Natural Bang which contains 250mg caffeine and the other is Classic Bang with 300mg caffeine.

Zero-Caffeine Variant of Bang

The brand recently introduced a hydrating formula with zero caffeine that is suitable for nursing mothers and pregnant women named Vooz Hydration sensation. 

Also, instead of taking 300 milligrams of caffeine in one go, you should consider their refined fusion. Another best part about this sports hydrating drink is the absence of any fat, sugar, or carbs. 

It’s important to note that there are no unnecessary additives in the Vooz Hydration sensation. On top of it, nutrients and minerals in the beverage will strengthen your immune system. 

The only downside to Vooz Hydration is that it contains 270mg of sodium. If this much sodium works for you, you wouldn’t find a better thirst quencher than Bang Vooz. 

Bang Sugar Levels

Bang is sugar free. Also, it doesn’t contain carbs.

Luckily, Bang comes with no sugar and no carbs, making it an ideal choice for many. Too often, you’ll see sugar-free drinks containing no carbs but in some cases there exist high doses of carbs. Like sugar, carbs also cause a rise in your sugar level.

To ensure that supplements deliver on their promises, I recommend checking the label carefully. 

Here’s what you might experience with drinks containing sugar;

  • Acne
  • High sugar level
  • Crash
  • Cravings for sugar
  • Depression

Even though you’re not diabetic, there are chances of getting type 2 diabetes with higher sugar intake. Interestingly, there’ll be no such issue if you take Bang. 

Which Sugar Substitute is in Bang? 

Like every other sugar-free beverage, Bang comes with a sugar substitute; Sucralose. You’ll find more than one artificial sugar in most supplements. 

Some individuals like to keep everything as healthy as possible. Therefore, they take natural sweeteners such as erythritol and monk fruit. In case you are wondering about the safety of Sucralose, let’s have a look at both its negative and positive sides.

Positives

  • It has zero calories.
  • It doesn’t give a high sugar spike.
  • FDA considers it to be safe.

Negatives

  • It’s 300 to 500 times sweeter than table sugar.
  • It’s not suitable for baking.
  • It increases sugar level in those who take it casually.
  • Studies raise safety questions about its long-term use.

As you can see, it has both pros and cons. Moderation is the key to keeping everything healthy and safe.

Vitamins

Bang energy drink has three B Vitamins and Vitamin C.

To make drinks a bit healthy, energy brands use vitamins and nutrients in their products. In the case of Bang, you get a variety of nutrients.

Even though these vitamins are present in very small quantities, they still provide you with some remarkable benefits

VitaminSuggested DoseFunctions 
Vitamin C (27mg)75mg for women 90mg for menAside from managing hypertension, it is also good for your immune system.
Vitamin B6 (0.5mg)1.7mgTaking a moderate dose of this will develop the brain and nerves.
Niacin (5mg)35mgThis vitamin is equally beneficial for your skin and mental performance.
Vitamin B12 (1.5mcg)2.4mcgYou can take this for the proper functioning of your nerve cells.

The amounts of vitamins are below the approved dosage by health authorities. 

EAAs 

Bang doesn’t come with non-essential amino acids. Instead, you get unknown amounts of EAAs (essential amino acids). Your body doesn’t have the ability to produce these acids, so you need to supplement them. 

You might have seen supplements containing only BCAAs (three essential amino acids). In the case of Bang, there are all nine amino acids in the beverage.

These acids have the following functions:

  • Grow tissues
  • Improve immune system
  • Provide energy
  • Help in athletic performance
  • Good for anxiety

Even though the main source of these is animal-based foods, a few plants such as Tofu also contain them.

Sodium Levels of Bang 

The 40 milligrams of sodium in the Bang contributes only 2% to the daily recommended value. You can say it’s quite a moderate dose that won’t necessarily cause any side effects. Otherwise, some drinks come along with more than 100 mg of sodium. 

Such a high amount might give you a salty taste which sometimes makes drinks taste bad. Health authorities regulate that you shouldn’t go beyond 2300 mg of sodium from all sources. 

Where the right dose can balance fluid level in your body, going overboard on it can raise your blood pressure of which you must take special care.

Interestingly, there’s no such issue with Bang as the amount of sodium in the drink is way below daily value so there’s no tension of salty taste or experiencing high blood pressure.

Electrolytes in Bang 

Bang has three other electrolytes apart from sodium which I have discussed in quite a detail just above. The other electrolytes in Bang are:

  • Potassium (85 milligrams)
  • Magnesium (5 milligrams)
  • Calcium (5 milligrams)

These electrolytes perform different tasks in your body. Let’s have a look at their functions;

ElectrolytesRecommended Dose (For Adults)Functions
Calcium1000mgImprove the overall health of bones. Also likely effective for high blood pressure.
Magnesium300 – 400mgA booster for athletic performance.
Potassium4700mg Increases muscles and nerve functioning
Table showing the functions and suggested dose of EAAs

The dose of electrolytes in the beverage is below what health authorities regulate. So, taking Bang wouldn’t cause any issues associated with larger amounts. 

How Many Cans of Bang Should You Have? 

Considering the caffeine content and a long list of other ingredients, I’d recommend sticking to one can of Bang. In my perspective, drinking a 300 milligrams caffeine drink in one sitting wouldn’t be a healthy idea. 

If you’re an eSports enthusiast or athlete, one serving would provide you with a long-lasting mental and physical boost.

For those who don’t take caffeine or supplements regularly, one serving can make them feel jittery. So, try keeping your caffeine intake according to your tolerance and preference.

If you’re looking for a carb-free and sugar-free source of energy, Bang might be a good option for you. 

Conclusion

You’ll see that most zero-calorie drinks don’t taste great. However, that’s not the case with Bang. With some flavors, you’ll feel a sweet aftertaste.

Moreover, it’s an ideal choice for any lifestyle since it’s vegan and gluten-free. 300 milligrams of caffeine in the beverage also increases mental focus and alertness. In my perspective, this dose of caffeine is too high only if you take this drink three times or more a week.

Also, you won’t see any disturbance in sleep after 8 hours of consumption. If caffeinated drinks are not up to your standards, you should check their zero-caffeine variant. Vooz by Bang comes with a short list of ingredients. 

If you’re under 18, pregnant, or nursing, I’d recommend giving their hydrating formula a try.
