To answer the question above: You can drink Bang Shot every day.
However, it won’t be very beneficial to your health due to the caffeine content in the drink. It’s always best to consume energy drinks in moderation since overconsumption can lead to negative effects.

Caffeine Content in Bang Shot
The amount of caffeine in one serving of Bang Shot is 300mg.
If we’re comparing this amount to the FDA’s recommended 400mg amount of caffeine for an average adult, this is a lot for a small serving.
Although this limit is imposed, it still depends on your caffeine tolerance. In my opinion, even if you’re used to drinking caffeine-induced beverages, the amount of caffeine in can Bang Shot still be a lot.
Moreover, if you have low caffeine tolerance, I suggest you don’t drink this energy shot for your safety. The same way goes for when you’re unfamiliar with your caffeine sensitivity.
Consult your doctor before consuming any caffeine at all to be safe.
There’s a lot of side effects that may occur once you overconsume caffeine, and they’re not limited to:
- Digestive Problems
- Muscle Breakdown
- High Blood Pressure
- Fast Heart Rate
- Frequent Urination
On the other hand, being mindful with your caffeine intake will give you these health benefits:
- Better Energy Levels
- Improved Memory
- Burned Fat
- Improved Physical Performance
- Essential Nutrients
- Lowered Risks of Type 2 Diabetes
- Protection from Alzheimer’s Disease
- Protection from Dementia
- Reduced Risks of Parkinson’s Disease
- Lowered Risks of Certain Types of Cancer
- Lowered Risks of Stroke
When you consume caffeinated drinks like Bang Shot, be mindful of the amount to get the best results.
Bang Shot’s Sugar Content
There’s no sugar in Bang Shot. As an alternative to regular sugar, a sugar alcohol is used.
If you’re not familiar with sugar alcohols, they’re a type of sweet carbohydrates usually found in fruits and vegetables.
It doesn’t contain ethanol, even though it has the word ‘alcohol’ in its name. So, don’t worry about getting tipsy because this ingredient won’t make you drunk.
The sugar alcohol used in Bang Shot is glycerin, otherwise known as ‘glycerol’. It’s a natural compound sourced in vegetable oils or animal fat. This ingredient gives that sweet taste to the energy shot.
Using sugar alcohol as an alternative to sugar gives a few notable benefits to your health, especially when you consume it moderately:
- Lesser Calories
- Easier Blood Sugar Management
- Lesser Dental Risks
- Lesser Carbs
Although, too much of this ingredient may lead to unwanted effects:
- Possible Gastrointestinal Side Effects
- Weight Game
- Laxative Effect
The amount of sugar alcohol in a 3 fl oz. bottle of Bang Shot is only 1g. The recommended amount per day is 10-15g of the ingredient.
However, just because there’s only a gram of sugar alcohol means you should drink it more than once a day or every day. The 300mg amount of caffeine in the drink is still a hefty amount, so I don’t advise you to drink a lot daily.

Essential Amino Acids in Bang Shot
Bang Shot has all of the nine essential amino acids:
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins needed for our bodies to function. There are three categories of these compounds. But in this article, we’ll focus on the essential amino acids.
Essential amino acids can only be obtained by consuming food and drinks containing this compound. On top of this, this type of amino acid can’t be made inside our body.
This set of ingredients make Bang Shot a good supplement for heavy or intense activities like workouts since it gives a ton of help on your body, such as:
- Boosted Exercise Performance
- Prevented Muscle Loss
- Promoted Weight Loss
While there are great benefits when you consume essential amino acids, too many nutrients may lead to negative outcomes like:
- Gastrointestinal Distress (Bloating)
- Abdominal Pain
- Higher Risk of Gout
- Sudden Drop in Blood Pressure
- Change in Eating Patterns
Like the other two highlighted ingredients earlier, it has its benefits. However, once you overconsume, you risk causing more harm than good to your health.

Can You Drink Bang Shot Every Day?
If you’re a healthy adult, drinking Bang Shot every day wouldn’t be a problem. However, I don’t suggest doing so.
Although the suggested amount of caffeine is 400mg, the amount of caffeine in Bang Shot is still more than enough for you to get through a high-intensity activity. To add, I think that 300mg is a little too much for an energy boost.
If you drink 300mg of caffeine every day, it may also lead to caffeine addiction. This occurs when you consume caffeine in dangerous amounts each day without knowing when to stop doing so, which can be harmful to your health.

Since there are 11 diverse flavors of Bang Shot, it depends on what you pick. You can get a fruity taste like Peach Mango, to a much more dessert-like flavor such as Birthday Cake Bash.
Overall, due to the sugar alcohol included in the drink, it tastes sweet. The amino acids are added to that sweetness give a mildly sweet touch to your tongue.

- Full Throttle Energy Drink
- Monster Energy
- Rockstar Original Energy Drink
- Mountain Dew Kickstart Original Dew
- Red Bull
All in all, if you’re a healthy adult, you can drink Bang Shot every day. However, I don’t recommend doing so due to the hefty amount of caffeine.
It’s always best to consume anything in moderation, especially when it comes to energy drinks like Bang Shot.
In a 3 fl oz. bottle, you can get a huge amount of 300mg caffeine, which is more than enough for you to get the energy boost you need.
Despite having the limit of 400mg the FDA recommended, keep in mind that 100-200mg of caffeine is enough for you to get the results you need for your energy.
While caffeine tolerance may differ from one person to another, drinking that amount of caffeine every day may lead you to the side effects mentioned earlier or even caffeine addiction.
Seek a medical professional first before intaking a heavy caffeine-induced beverage.
Along with the caffeine, essential amino acids in the drink provide the nutrients you need for a workout. So, if you’re thinking of taking Bang Shot as a supplement for your exercise, go for it.
If the facts laid out in this article made you conclude that Bang Shot is the way to go, always keep in mind to drink it in moderation so that you can get the best results out of it.
Remember that one Bang Shot is enough for you to get through the day.
Grab a can of Bang and enjoy.
