This Energy Drink Contains The Highest Amount Of Caffeine Per Serving
Energy drinks are marketed as a way to increase alertness, physical performance, and energy levels. Some drinks accomplish this through stimulants like taurine and guarana, but the most popular stimulant has always been caffeine, and there's one energy drink that has so much caffeine per serving that the company is being sued over it.
The energy drink with the highest amount of caffeine is Redline Xtreme, with a whopping 316 milligrams of caffeine per 8-oz serving. Compare that to 80-100 milligrams of caffeine in a cup of coffee, 34 milligrams in a 12-oz serving of Coca-Cola, and the FDA-recommended daily amount of caffeine for adults, which is 400 milligrams.
As of July 2022, Redline Xtreme energy drink makers are being sued for failing to warn consumers about the potentially dangerous side effects of the high-caffeine product. To avoid risks such as a heightened potential for heart problems, consume caffeine in moderation and try to consume only one energy drink per day.
