Caffeine has already been known for its stimulating effects on the human body by ancient civilisations who consumed it from natural sources like tea, coffee, cacao beans & cola nuts.
To this day caffeine is naturally present in more than 60 plants and contained in many foodstuffs such as coffee, tea and chocolate.
One of caffeine’s primary sites of action in the human body is its stimulating effect on cognitive functions. Caffeine helps to improve concentration and increase alertness.
One 250ml can of Red Bull Energy Drink contains 80mg of caffeine.
Vitamins are essential micronutrients that are required for maintaining normal body functions.
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 will be released. Water soluble vitamins include the group of B vitamins, e.g. niacinamide (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), vitamin B6 and vitamin B12, which are contained in Red Bull.
These B-group vitamins contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism, such as the build-up and break-down of carbohydrates and proteins and contribute to normal mental performance (pantothenic acid) and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue (niacin, pantothenic acid, B6, B12).
Moreover, B-group vitamins play a central role in the brain; they contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system.
Red Bull Energy Drink is made with sugar sourced from sugar beets.
Sugars are well known carbohydrates and can be found in many foodstuffs from fruits and 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.
Red Bull Energy Drink contains 11g/100ml of sugars. This total amount of sugars is comparable to the sugar level in an equivalent amount of apple or orange juice.
Taurine is an amino acid, naturally occurring in the human body and present in the daily diet. It is involved in a wide range of biological processes.
Taurine is found in high concentrations in muscle, brain, heart and blood. A person weighing 70 kg has approximately 70 g of taurine distributed throughout their body. Put another way, a 70 kg person naturally already has in his body 70 times the amount of taurine contained in one can of Red Bull Energy Drink.
Taurine is also contained in different foodstuffs like scallops, fish, poultry and most infant formulas.
Naturally, water is a key ingredient of Red Bull.
The water used for Red Bull is fresh alpine water of best quality, which comes from springs nearby the production sites in Austria and Switzerland. This region, the Alps, is known as one of the world’s biggest water reservoirs, where water is available in abundance and constantly replenished.
Hence, to ensure consistency of the upmost premium quality around the world, Red Bull is produced in the Austrian and Swiss Alps.
