Let’s have a look at what Bang Energy Shots have to offer.

Is Bang Energy Shot sugar free?
You must be thinking if this energy-packed caffeinated drink is sugar-free or not.
Quick Answer: It is completely sugar-free, hence you won’t be having those extra calories from sugar.
A single 3 fl. oz bottle of Bang Energy Shot contains 1g of Sugar Alcohol.
Sugar alcohol is erythritol which is a kind of carbohydrate that has a similar structure to sugar and alcohol. It is a kind of sweetener that occurs naturally in some fruits and vegetables.
Regardless of its name, sugar alcohols don’t contain any hints of real ethanol (or liquor). Sugar Alcohols are not absorbed as regular sugar in the body therefore it contains fewer calories.
Sugar Alcohol acts like regular sugar but is different in taste. Some have a less sweet taste but gives a cooling impact on the flavor of the food.
With the growing demand and usage of sugar alcohol in food varieties and beverages, what we can do is know about our utilization and limits to our intake to avoid side effects of bloating and diarrhea.
Current recommendations suggest that the limit of having sugar alcohol per day is 10g to 15g. Taking too much sugar alcohol will cause side effects.
Given that Bang Energy Shot contains only 1g of sugar alcohol per bottle, it is unlikely to cause any problems in your body.
You can check out the video below if you want to know more about sugar alcohols.
What are the ingredients in Bang Energy Shot?
A single 3 fl. oz bottle of Bang Energy Shot contains the following ingredients:
- SUPER CREATINE (Creatyl-L-Leucine)
- CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10)
- Carbonated water
- Potassium citrate
- Potassium phosphate dibasic
- Sodium benzoate (preservative)

You can see that there is a lot of ingredients especially some unfamiliar terms like CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10), super creatine, etc.
Let me walk you through it all.
CoQ10 in Bang Shots
CoQ10 which is Coenzyme Q10 is a naturally occurring nutrient in the body. You can also find CoQ10 in many foods that we have daily.
Some of the functions of CoQ10 in the body are listed below:
- Energy production
- Antioxidant protection
- Heart health
- Treating migraines
CoQ10 can lessen oxidative pressure in the cells and accordingly decline weariness, prompting the improvement of activity execution.
You can find out more about the health benefits of CoQ10.
However, the specific measure of CoQ10 in Bang Energy Shots isn’t expressed as it’s simply included among proprietary blends.
Consequently, you can’t be sure in case it’s sufficient for it to be advantageous for your performance.
Super creatine in Bang Energy Shot
The ingredient super creatine is trademarked by VPX Sports, the company that owns the brand Bang energy.
If you want to know more about super creatine, you can check out the video below.
Super Creatine is scientifically engineered for the improvement of Bang Energy Drinks. However, it is also used as a marketing strategy in my opinion.
Bang Energy Shot contains B-vitamins
Let’s look into the B-vitamins listed as ingredients in Bang Energy Shot:
|Type of B Vitamin||Purpose||Bang Energy Shot (3 fl. oz)||Daily Recommended (for women)||Daily Recommended (for men)|
|Vitamin B3 (Niacin)||Converts supplements into energy; an antioxidant that supports the immune system; fixes DNA.||4mg||14mg||16mg|
|Vitamin B6||Supports the central nervous system and guarantees smooth digestion.||0.4mg||1.3mg||1.3mg|
|Vitamin B12||Maintains the healthy function of brain and nerve tissue and increases the production of red blood cells.||2.4mcg||2.4mcg||2.4mcg|
B-vitamins are a very common ingredient for any kind of energy drink.
B-vitamins have numerous health benefits when taken in the right amount. Some of the benefits include:
- Cell health
- Growth of red blood cells
- Energy levels
- Good eyesight
- Healthy brain function
- Good digestion
The amount of daily intake for adults varies among men and women (refer to the table above).
For older and pregnant individuals, a higher dosage of b-vitamins is required with the guidance of a professional doctor.
On the other hand, here are some of the side effects that may occur if you exceeded the suggested daily intake of b-vitamins:
- Excessive thirst
- Skin conditions
- Blurry vision
- Abdominal cramps
While Bang Energy Shot has a very moderate amount of b-vitamins, you still want to consider taking it in moderation to avoid any potential side effects.
Amino Acids in Bang Energy Shot
These are Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs). BCAAs are very popular among bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts. Although according to the study, BCAAs do not enhance athletic performance, it is a vital ingredient that helps;
- muscle growth,
- improves muscle mass,
- decrease muscle soreness,
- and reduces exercise fatigue.
What are BCAAs?
BCAAs are amino acids that are needed to rebuild and grow new muscles. There are nine essential amino acids that the body cannot produce and it comes from the food we take.
Histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine are the nine essential amino acids. The branched-chain amino acids are leucine, isoleucine, and valine.
Bang energy Shots contain L-leucine, L-isoleucine, L-valine, L-lysine, L-threonine, L-phenylalanine, L-histidine, L-tryptophan which are some of the essential amino acids needed to rebuild muscle and help muscle growth.
Bang Energy Shot contains traces of these amino acids hence choosing bang shots to enhance muscle growth will not be wise.
How much caffeine is in Bang Energy Shot?
Below are some of the benefits of caffeine:
- Improves memory
- Decreases fatigue
- Improving mental functioning
- Improves energy level
- Better concentration
- Helps lose weight
A single serving of Bang Energy Shot contains 300mg of caffeine which is a lot. Hence, overconsumption may cause the following problems:
- Irregular or fast heartbeat
- Trouble breathing
- Lack of focus
In my opinion, since Bang Energy Shot is high in caffeine content, it must be taken in moderation and not go overboard with it. People with low caffeine tolerance must be cautious while having Bang Energy Shot.
Does Bang Energy Shots have calories?
Bang Energy Shots contain only 5 calories per bottle.
Sugar is one of the main sources of calories and since Bang Energy Shot has no sugar, the calorie content is very low.
For an adult, the daily recommended calory intake is 2000-2500 calories. Compared to the number of calories a person can take daily, the calory content in Bang Energy Shot is almost negligible.
Therefore we can say that Bang Energy Shot has almost no calories.
Caffeine is the only source of energy in Bang Energy Shot which is very generous given it contains 300mg of caffeine per bottle.
How long does Bang Energy Shot last?
The half-life of caffeine is 5-6 hours. Considering that Bang Energy Shot contains a generous amount of caffeine of 300mg, this suggests that even after 5-6 hours of having a Bang Energy Shot, your system will still have 150mg of caffeine.
In addition, it will take at least 10 hours for the caffeine to get out of the system.
Hence I would suggest, it is best to have only one bottle of Bang Energy Shot even if you have a high caffeine tolerance.
It is also better not to have other caffeinated food after having a bottle of Bang Energy Shot so that you do not go overboard with caffeine.
I also do not recommend having Bang Energy Shot 6 hours before sleep because that might disrupt your sleep cycle and might even cause insomnia.
How often can you drink Bang Energy Shot?
Having one bottle of Bang Energy Shot is recommended given you have good health conditions and high caffeine tolerance.
Given the high caffeine content, I would suggest you spread out your Bang Energy Shot consumption throughout the week.
This is to avoid caffeine overload in your system because it takes time for your body to absorb the caffeine and also get rid of it from your bloodstream.
If you have any heart-related health conditions and you still want to consume Bang Energy Shot, please consult with your doctor before doing so.
You can always go for other drinks with lower caffeine levels which is much safer.
Is it bad to drink Bang Shots every day?
A single bottle of Bang Energy Shot contains 300mg of caffeine is very close to the total daily limit of caffeine intake for a healthy adult recommended by the FDA which is 400mg.
One bottle of Bang Energy Shot contains caffeine as much as four cups of coffee. As I mentioned earlier, caffeine stays in the system for at least 11 to 12 hours.
I personally think drinking Bang Energy Shot should be spread out throughout the week. Having it every day might lead to insomnia because it has strong caffeine content.
It is not bad to drink it every day if you have high caffeine tolerance and you are healthy. But I would still recommend limiting having more than one bottle per day.
Bang Energy Shots Flavors
Bang Energy Shots come in 9 exciting flavors. All of these tasty flavors include:
- Birthday Cake Bash
- Candy Apple Crisp
- Frose Rose
- Key Lime Pie
- Peach Mango
- Purple Haze
- Radical Skadattle

Bang Energy Shot is a good choice given the ingredients it contains along with high caffeine.
Like I mentioned earlier, this drink is best if you consume a single bottle per day given you are in healthy condition and that you have very high caffeine tolerance.
I would definitely recommend it if you want a sudden boost in your energy because you want to pull an all-nighter or you are working out.
If you face any side effects from drinking Bang Energy Shot, you should switch to other less caffeinated drinks.
At the end of the day, it really depends on how much is your caffeine metabolism and whether Bang Energy Shot works for you or not.
