Haven't tried it because it's too expensive anyway (Well at least here in Europe). What i'm noticing is it's too common with american products - too harmful and dangerous. If it's not this it will be aspartame or fluoride or soy...

Quote:Jeff Dahncke, a spokesman for PepsiCo, noted that brominated vegetable oil had been deemed safe for consumption by federal regulators.

FDA approved...

Hell no! I wouldn't touch it even if brominated vegetable oil is banned in Europe. No way!

Forget energy drinks - they're no more effective than a cup of coffee

With buzz-word ingredients such as guarana and ginseng, energy drinks have been heralded for their mind and body-boosting qualities.

But according to new research, the only useful ingredient in beverages such as Redbull is caffeine.

The study, published in the Nutrition Reviews journal, found that while energy drinks often contain ingredients such as taurine, guarana and ginseng, there is an ‘overwhelming lack of evidence to substantiate claims that these ingredients boost performance’.

It has been suggested that these drinks enhance physical and cognitive performance.

But the new research casts doubt over this, suggesting the main benefit is probably down to a generous dose of caffeine.

Ginseng has a long history of use and well established benefit. B vitamins are also well established and my understanding is that taurine and guarana are chemically similar to caffeine.

Now it may be that there simply is not enough in these drinks to do much. they are somewhat expensive ingredients and it is more important to have them on the label then it is to actually give you enough to do anything. There is only 30mcg of B-12 for example in a Rockstar. Whereas in the B-12 sublingual complex there is 1,200mcg in dose ...so one can only imagine how little ginseng they really put in it or any of the other key ingredients.

Red Bull on the other hand has something different in it that is proprietary and supposedly really horrible for you that the military once experimented with.

...and the basic premise is that anything that gives you energy is "performance boosting". So of course caffeine which is the main ingredient and the one they rely on to give you an addicting rush is what is deemed "useful".

Best to get nutrition from real food and not rely on 'fortified' crap.

We were having Mexican food the other night and browsed the stores for guacamole for shits and giggles. One brand had 3.7% avocado. damned.gif We of course made our own that was way better than anything you could buy from the store, but still kinda crazy.
