Red Bull Energy Drink
Can you drink too much of Red Bull Energy Drink?
The consumption of Red Bull is only limited by its caffeine content. One 250 ml can of Red Bull Energy Drink contains about the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee, which is 80 mg. The consumption of Red Bull Energy Drink should therefore correspond to a person’s intake of coffee.
Many authorities around the world have looked at the effects of caffeine. Health Canada scientists recently conducted an extensive review of the scientific literature on caffeine (http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/hl-vs/iyh-vsv/food-aliment/caffeine-eng.php). Based on this review, they concluded that the general population of healthy adults is not at risk for potential adverse effects from caffeine if they limit their consumption to 400 mg per day. However, Health Canada recommends for pregnant women to limit their daily intake to 300 mg.
Nutrition experts agree that it is important to consume foods and beverages from many different sources and in moderation. Of course, this is also true for Red Bull which should be part of a balanced and varied diet and a healthy lifestyle.
