Many people around the world, especially teenagers, drink Red Bull – every day, which is a bad thing! How about you, do you drink Red Bull every day? Share you answer in the comment section below! This popular drink is developed in Austria! Its marketing slogan promises that Red Bull will give you wings. Yeah, right! And, according to Red Bull, all of the ingredients are syn- thetically produced by pharmaceutical companies, which “guarantees the highest quality” of ingredients.
And now, here comes the million-dollar question – what’s really in Red Bull that can “give us wings?” Here’s what you need to know – the experts say that each 250 ml (8.3 oz.) can of Red Bull contains the following:
- 1000 mg of taurine,
- 600mg of glucuronolactone,
- 80 mg of caffeine,
- 18 mg of niacin (niacinamide),
- 6 mg of panto- thenic acid (calcium d-pantothenate),
- 2 mg of vitamin B6 (pyridoxide HCI),
- vitamin B2 (riboflavin),
- vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamine),
- nonmedicinal ingredients: carbonated water, sucrose, glucose (27 grams of sugar), citric acid, flavors, and caramel.
Some countries in Europe, like France and Denmark have just prohibited it as a cocktail of death, due to its vitamin components mixed with glucuronolactone – a highly-dangerous chemical.
About the Ingredients:
- Sucrose and glucose
Yes, Red Bull is loaded with simple sugars. You’ll be shocked when we tell you that just one 16-ounce energy drink may contain 54 grams of sugar, the approximate equivalent of 14 teaspoons. And, unfortunately, these sugars are metabolized quickly by the body and produce a quick energy burst, followed by a deep energy deficit. High intake of sugar raises blood fat levels and leeches’ essential minerals such as copper, chromium and zinc from the body, leading to deficiency diseases, immune system impairment and even insulin resistance.
Do you know what’s taurine? Well, taurine is an amino acid, and according to many recent studies on rats and guinea pigs, high intake is associated with liver dysfunction. And it can also enhance the toxicity of industrial pollutants such as carbon tetrachloride.
- Vitamin B6
Did you know that intake of in excess of 1 gram per day of Vitamin B6 can result in nerve damage known as peripheral sensory neuropathy, caused by damage to the outer wrapping of nerves and degeneration of nerves? Well yes, and this means that you should be very careful! The experts say that the daily requirement for this vitamin is about 1.2 to 2.0 mg per day, Red Bull supplies 250% of this.
You should also know that this popular drink contains synthetic flavorings which are essentially the same chemicals as perfumes and can thus be considered to be neurotoxins, allergens and potential carcinogens.
The experts say that this type of caramel produced by ammonia process is a common food coloring. It has been associated with blood toxicity in rats. You should also know that this type of caramel has been linked to damaged genes, slow growth. It can cause enlargement of the intestines and kidneys, destroy vitamin B and cause hyperactivity.
Note: Red Bull has a pH of 3.3, which is the same as vinegar. Combined with sugar, they are perfect for eroding the enamel on teeth, and causing a lifetime of dental problems. So, we can easily say that Red Bull doesn’t do anything to nourish the body or replenish it after physical exertion. In fact, because of the drink’s high caffeine content, it can be very dehydrating and dangerous to your health. And, this means one thing – you should stop drinking Red Bull!
