Short Answer: A single can of Bang Energy Drink a day is considered safe.
Bang Energy Drink is heavily stuffed with 300 mg caffeine designed to give you a quick boost and have you bed-bound for a few minutes if consumed irresponsibly.
The benefits of Super Creatine in Bang even made the drink more popular to fitness buffs and anyone who’s engaged in extreme physical activities. You can surely gain the strength that you need after a few sips of your favorite Bang Energy Drink.
That being said, I can truly say that Bang delivers and rarely disappoints.
However, I strongly recommend sticking to one can per day to keep the caffeine discomfort away.

How Many Calories Are There In Bang?
Bang contains zero calories which makes it a safe addition to a low-calorie diet.
The zero-calorie content in Bang Energy Drink means that you don’t have to make any adjustments to your diet and no need to worry about a sugar crash.
As a sweet reminder, here’s the recommended daily calorie intake for men and women:
- 2000 to 2400 calories for women
- 2400 to 3000 calories for men
Too much intake of calories can lead to alarming health conditions such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, gallstone, and cancer.
Even though Bang contains zero calories, still I strongly advise limiting your intake to one can per day to avoid putting your health at risk.
Bang Energy Drink Sugar Content
Bang contains zero sugar but it uses sucralose and acesulfame potassium as sweeteners.
Sucralose is marketed as something that is made from sugar, so it tastes like sugar which is sometimes considered false marketing. It is a non-nutritive artificial sweetener that is 600 times sweeter than real sugar.
Acesulfame potassium, on the other hand, comes from the chemical element potassium. It is 200 times sweeter than sugar which means that you only need a small amount to match the sweetness of real sugar.
There are controversies surrounding artificial sweeteners and these two are not exempted. There is a study that mentioned brain tumors, weight gain, and bladder cancer as adverse effects of long-term and excessive use of sugar substitutes.
However, the FDA has approved the use of sucralose and acesulfame for use. It should be safe in food and beverages as long as you don’t over-consume.
That being said, the artificial sweeteners in Bang are safe and it’s perfectly fine to drink a can of it once in a while.
Bang Energy Drink Caffeine
Bang contains a whopping amount of caffeine at 300 mg.
Bang Energy Drink is also listed as one of the strongest energy drinks available, alongside Reign and Spike Hardcore Energy Drink.
The thing is, 300 mg caffeine is quite close to the recommended intake per day – 400 mg. That means you can’t consume more than a single can of Bang Energy Drink.
Going over the limit can lead to caffeine OD with the following symptoms:
- increased thirst
Super Creatine in Bang
Super Creatine is an upgraded ingredient derived from creatine and l-leucine and is specifically created for Bang Energy Drinks.
First off, we’ll have to find out what exactly is creatine before understanding what is Super Creatine.
Creatine is naturally present in your muscles cell which is produced when doing heavy lifting or extreme physical activity. It is also a popular supplement used by athletes to improve exercise performance and gain better focus.
The Super Creatine in Bang is water-soluble which makes it easy to cross the blood-brain barrier. As a result, you can quickly feel the effects, in terms of enhanced mental focus.
The thing is, it is hard to tell how much Super Creatine is in Bang. We can’t be too sure of its full effects after consuming a can of Bang.
Electrolytes in Bang
The major electrolytes present in a can of Bang Energy Drink are sodium (40 mg), potassium (85 mg), and magnesium (5 mg). Plus, some phosphate, calcium, and chloride!
For your viewing pleasure, I have created this table showing the list of electrolytes found in Bang, including their functional role in the body, amount in each can, and their recommended daily values.
|Electrolytes||Functional Role in Body||Amount||Recommended DV|
|Sodium||The nervous system, Maintaining fluid balance||40 mg||2300 mg|
|Potassium||The nervous system, Muscle contraction||85 mg||4700 mg|
|Magnesium||Muscle contraction||5 mg||420 mg|
In the end, electrolytes are a great addition to Bang. They prevent potential electrolyte imbalances that can result from sweating too much during heavy workouts.
Even with that in mind, I highly suggest that Bang shouldn’t replace drinks that are made specifically for electrolytes replenishment.
B-Vitamins in Bang
These are the B-Vitamins present in a can of Bang Energy Drink.
|B-Vitamins||Role in the Body||Amount||Recommended DV||%DV|
|Vitamin B3 |
|converts food into energy|
maintains skin, hair, and nervous system health
|5 mg||14-16 mg||33%|
|Vitamin B6||responsible for improved metabolism rate||0.5||1.7 mg||29%|
|Vitamin B12||promotes nerve tissue health |
improved brain function
helps with the production of red blood cells
|1.5 mcg||2.4 mcg||63%|
As I see it, Bang is pretty much stuffed with B-Vitamins that are generally helpful in keeping you strong and energized but that’s not enough reason to over-consume.
Is It OK To Drink 2 Bang Energy Drinks A Day?
In my opinion, drinking two cans of Bang Energy Drinks a day is a pretty bad idea primarily due to its high caffeine content.
Two cans of Bang is equal to 600 mg of caffeine that is way over the recommended daily caffeine intake, which is 400 mg.
I choose to believe that even if you have a very high caffeine tolerance, 600 mg caffeine can surely give you the nastiest headache ever! So, one can of Bang seems to be the safest spot for everyone.
In general, drinking too many energy drinks can lead to poor oral health, acute liver injury, and cardiac arrest. The adverse effects of using energy drinks long-term may also lead to death although it’s very rare.
How Long Does Bang Stay In Your System?
The effect of caffeinated drinks stays in your body for almost 12 hours but this varies on factors like age, genetics, body type, caffeine tolerance, and food intake.
So, Bang stays in your system depending on these factors. It is also important to get to know your body’s caffeine metabolism rate to avoid overconsumption.
So, the answer to this question is, it varies from person to person!
Is Bang A Healthy Drink?
To be honest, I don’t really consider Bang or any other energy drink healthy due to its caffeine content and other chemical-based ingredients.
However, in all conviction, I can say that an energy drink like Bang works well in giving you a quick boost to help you focus and strengthen your physical endurance.
On a side note:
Here’s an interesting video showing why you should possibly consider Bang as your go-to energy drink.
In summary, one can of Bang Energy Drink is just about right to keep you energized for the entire day.
And even if you think that you need more boost, think first before grabbing the next can!
Let me emphasize that going overboard can lead to caffeine overdose and other alarming symptoms.
Bang Energy Drink is packed with Super Creatine, B-Vitamins, electrolytes, CoQ10, and other energy-boosting ingredients that work well in giving you the strength and focus that you need for the entire day.
If you think Bang is right for you, grab one now!
