Red Bull isn’t substantially more costly than other soda pops. However, it comes at a premium. You can find the beverages sold singly, at local convenience stores, or you can pick them up from the supermarket in a four pack for a couple of dollars per can.

Red Bull contains several active ingredients to energize you. Caffeine, Taurine, Sugars, Water. While they are scientifically proven to work, the output is probably way lower than you would imagine. By estimates, you could MAYBE gain 1–2% performance bonus by drinking this kind of energy drink before doing any sports or other activities.

Red Bull energy drinks increase concentration and overall mental functioning by providing large doses of various B vitamins, especially B12. The result of improving physical performance is one of the leading benefits of Red Bull energy drinks appreciated by bodybuilders and other serious athletes.

Red Bull is primarily water, sugar, and caffeine, along with some added vitamins. Meaning if we talk about harmful effects, they would be the same as for any other drink with similar ingredients, like Coca-Cola or coffee. Red Bull is not more harmful than those, neither less.

One of the first side effects is weight gain. Red Bull is designed to give you energy, but if you’re using that power to sit at your computer at work and get your paperwork done, you’re not burning off the extra calories and carbohydrates from all the sugar it contains.

Perhaps the least discussed negative aspect of taking Red Bull is that it dehydrates your body. Many people don’t understand the importance of having a properly hydrated body, and this is the reason why you feel like you don’t have any energy.

Caffeine is a natural compound in coffee, tea, and chocolate. Many manufacturers add caffeine to their energy drinks because it is a stimulant. RedBullUSA.com states that caffeine improves mental focus, concentration, and alertness. According to KidsHealth.org, caffeine can affect your nervous system for six hours.

Red Bull is often used in alcoholic mixed drinks at bars and nightclubs. While combining energy drinks and alcohol is unlikely to pose a significant health risk to healthy people, according to a literature review published in the International Journal of General Medicine in 2012, the long-term effects of energy drinks mixed with alcohol require further investigation to determine their safety.

A lawsuit was brought about by some Red Bull drinkers. Benjamin Careathers, a regular consumer of the fizzy drink, sued the company for false advertising, arguing that after ten years drinking Red Bull he neither had wings nor any enhanced athletic or intellectual performance.

To avoid the expense and adverse focus of litigation, Red Bull settled the lawsuit. However, Red Bull maintains that its marketing and labeling have always been truthful and accurate, and denies any and all wrongdoing or liability. While Red Bull denies wrongdoing, the company has voluntarily withdrawn and revised the marketing claims challenged in court.

While the suit did not allege that plaintiffs were disappointed that they didn’t suddenly sprout wings, it does say that Red Bull uses terms like “wings” and “boost” to give consumers the idea that the drink lifts them or enhances them physically.

The settlement says Red Bull will reimburse customers that were disappointed the energy drink did not live up to their expectations, providing a check for $10 or a voucher for $15 worth of Red Bull products. Because millions of people have purchased at least one can of Red Bull in the past ten years, this expense could be exorbitant.
