Bing Energy Drink: Caffeine
If you want to know whether a beverage will work for you or not, the caffeine content is the first thing you need to look at. Everyone has a different tolerance for caffeine and will need a specific amount of caffeine to feel the effects.
In this beverage, you get 120 milligrams of this nootropic. Let me tell you that a 12 fl. oz. serving of Red Bull has 114 mg of caffeine as this ight give you a good reference point.
Considering the FDA recommended dose, which is 400 mg daily, the amount of caffeine in the beverage will not cause any adverse effects keeping in mind that you’re not consuming caffeine from other sources. And if you are taking other caffeinated foods you need to keep your intake in close check.
If you exceed this daily limit, you’re more likely to experience the following symptoms;
- Foggy brain
Since caffeine blocks your adenosine, taking caffeine in the evening or night will disrupt your sleep and will keep you awake till morning. Age and health are the factors that determine who shouldn’t take caffeine. Those under 18, pregnant, or nursing women are not recommended to take any caffeinated beverages.
Caffeine isn’t the only nootropic in this beverage. There are a few other stimulants that perform various functions in your body. Guarana, which is one of the kinds of caffeine, provides you with more stimulation than caffeine. Let’s have a look at the functions and safe dosages of all nootropics.
|Taurine (1g)||3g||Taurine is a sedative and leaves very calm effects on you. Fighting fatigue and improving physical performance are a few of the functions of this amino acid. Overall, it’s not associated with any side effects, but it might interact with your medication if you are taking any.|
|Ginseng (100mg)||200mg – 3g||This root takes 7 years to grow. It boosts your cognitive performance and can reduce fatigue during the study. It also provides you with physical energy.|
|Guarana (unknown)||Unknown||Its a rather strong form of caffeine that is responsible of providing you with focus and better capability of learning. It works quite similarly to caffeine.|
If the purpose of using Bing is to increase your learning ability and gain a laser level focus, it might help you deal with all these situations. Also, the doses of the stimulants present in the beverage are below what health authorities regulate, so you won’t experience any side effects.
Natural Sugar Levels of Bing
Bing, containing 9 grams of natural sugar, is one of the healthiest beverages on the market. While other market-dominating drinks like Red Bull contain more sugar than what AHA recommends.
AHA recommends keeping your sugar intake below 24 g (women) and 36 g (men). A large dose of sugar doesn’t only make drinks taste overly sweet but also comes with countless health threats.
Here are a few of the symptoms that might appear with too much sugar;
- Weight gain
- Risk of getting type 2 diabetes
Undoubtedly, sugar provides you with an instant energy boost. However, that energy boost only lasts for an hour and is followed by an energy drain. Make sure you’re not overconsuming sugar or you might end up facing serious issues.
Mainly, artificial sugars are used in sugar-free beverages to make them taste less bitter. With Bing, you get two artificial sugars; sucralose and acesulfame potassium.
Despite the fact they’re FDA-approved and contain zero calories, some individuals don’t prefer them. Surely, their concerns are somewhat valid due to some wrongly circulated myths about these sugar replacements.
Some people believe that sugar substitutes might increase their appetite which promotes weight gain. However, no current research backs these claims, they instead help you lose weight. Moreover, unlike added sugar, they’re less harmful to your teeth.
Moderate doses of potassium (105 mg) and sodium (20 mg) make this beverage an ideal option as a pre-workout. When you do a high-intensity workout, you lose fluids in the form of sweat. Therefore, your body needs a specific amount of electrolytes for recovery and fluid balance.
Both sodium and potassium help maintain fluid balance in your body. Another benefit that comes along with potassium is that it helps maintain nerve function. Spinach, banana, and peas are a few foods containing potassium.
When you hear of sodium, you probably associate it with high blood pressure. However, that’s not always the case. You won’t experience this issue if you keep your sodium intake below 2.3 g. If you look at the functions of sodium, they’re no different than potassium. It also plays a significant role in maintaining fluids in your body.
Vitamins In Bing
Bing can be considered a vitamin self-sufficient beverage because it contains six of them. There’s no information regarding the amount of vitamins in the drink, so there’s no way of knowing whether you’re taking safe doses or not.
Let’s have a look at the functions of all the vitamins individually;
|Vitamin C||75 mg (women)90 mg (men)||This vitamin is effective for your eyes and reduces the risks of AMD (age-related macular degeneration).|
|Riboflavin||2.5 mg (men)1.8 mg (women)||It helps generate energy. Vegan athletes are more deficient in this vitamin as they don’t consume milk, eggs, and other foods containing this vitamin.|
|Niacin||35 mg||It’s likely effective for improving cognitive functions and reducing blood pressure.|
|Vitamin B6||1.7 mg||You can take it for improving mood and reducing depression.|
|Vitamin B12||2.4 mcg||It keeps you from getting tired and weak.|
|Pantothenic Acid||5 mg||Metabolic functioning specially linked to fatty acids.|
Does Bing Energy Drink Actually Work?
Considering the moderate doses of caffeine and other stimulants, this beverage helps you keep going. Most energy drinks are loaded with high caffeine doses which further lead to headaches and anxiety.
Also, the sugar content is below the health authorities’ guidelines. Energy beverages with high sugar doses cause energy drains. Before taking any power beverage, sugar and caffeine content are what you should consider.
Moreover, the right fusion of vitamins and nootropics doesn’t only give physical energy but also provides you with a cognitive boost. It contains electrolytes that help you recover from long gym sessions. For me, it works great, however, it might work differently in your case. Therefore, you should try it yourself to see how it goes for you.
Can Everyone Drink Bing Energy?
Even though this beverage contains natural sugar, those with sugar sensitivity or diabetes should avoid this. Whether it’s a natural or synthetic version of sugar, it’ll cause a spike in blood sugar levels.
Also, if you’re new to energy drinks, 120 mg of caffeine in the beverage might be a higher dose for you. Especially, when your system is not tolerant to taking caffeine.
Are Two Servings of Bing Safe?
In my opinion, you shouldn’t go beyond one serving of Bing. Apart from caffeine, there’s guarana seed extract that has more potent effects than caffeine. Taking too much of both nootropics will not only disrupt your sleep but will also make you wake up tired the next day.
Moreover, with two servings, you’ll be consuming double the amount of sugar. This beverage might not be the only source of your daily sugar consumption.
Another downside to this drink is the unknown amount of vitamins. Over-consuming anything will make your stomach upset therefore, you should stick to one serving a day.
Comparatively speaking, Bing is somewhat healthy because it contains natural sugar and natural flavors. Despite its fusion of ingredients, it is equally beneficial for physical and cognitive functions.
It has a moderate caffeine level and is not so overpowering, making it a healthy alternative to high caffeine sodas. Moreover, it doesn’t taste like typical energy drinks because it contains 5% juice. The flavor reminded me of tangy cherry juice. Give this drink a try!
