How Much Caffeine Is In Zipfizz?

Zipfizz has 100mg caffeine per tube.

I personally like the caffeine content of Zipfizz a lot, it suits my own caffeine tolerance.

I like my caffeine content in an energy drink to be about 50-100mg, as that’s my body’s caffeine tolerance. The caffeine content of more than 100mg does not help me. I don’t usually consume high caffeinated energy drinks often unless I really need to stay awake.

Zipfizz’s 100mg caffeine content is the same caffeine content as a cup of Trader Joe’s regular coffee.

Zipfizz doesn’t have a strong caffeine content like Bang or Reign Energy.

The FDA recommends a maximum of 400mg caffeine consumption for both adult males and females, if you surpass this caffeine content, you’ll face side effects.

For a better understanding check out the table below to see the caffeine content in Zipfizz and the recommended caffeine content.

How Much Sugar Does Zipfizz Energy Drink Have?

Zipfizz does not have any added sugar.

Too much added sugar isn’t healthy for our well-being. That’s why the AHA has limited added sugar intake to 36g and 24g per day for both men and women.

Consumption of sugar more than the mentioned amount might lead to health problems like:

  • Inflammation
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Weight Gain
  • Obesity

Since Zipfizz doesn’t have any added sugar, we don’t have to worry about that. Zipfizz uses artificial sweeteners instead of regular sugar.

Artificial Sweeteners In Zipfizz

Zipfizz uses Sucralose and Xylitol as their artificial sweeteners.

Sucralose is a popular sugar alternative used by many energy drink brands. Sucralose is a zero-calorie sweetener that’s 600 times sweeter than sugar.

Its most popular product is Splenda. Splenda is used mostly by people diagnosed with diabetes to consume instead of actual sugar.

Here is a detailed video about Splenda, if you are interested.

Xylitol is another artificial sweetener, used as an alternative to regular sugar. Xylitol is used commonly by sugar-free chewing gums, candies, etc.

A healthy adult can consume up to 50 grams of Xylitol per day.

Calorie Content Of Zipfizz

Zipfizz has only 20 calories each serving.

Consider the daily recommended calorie intake, which is 2,500 and 2,000 calories for men and women every day. Keep in mind the calorie content differs in person, age, metabolism, physical activity, gender, etc.

Even if you are following a proper diet, consuming a low-calorie energy drink like Zipfizz once in a while will not have a negative impact on your diet.

Which Vitamins Does Zipfizz Have?

Zipfizz is packed with vitamins. Namely, Vitamin C, E, A, Thiamine, Riboflavin, etc. The drink also has a few B vitamins like Vitamin B3, B6, and B12. But people are mostly worried about the tremendous content of Vitamin B12.

Zipfizz energy drink has 41.667% of the daily recommended intake of Vitamin B12, which is 2,500mg. If you’re consuming this much vitamin just from an energy drink, it might have some side effects.

The B vitamins in Zipfizz are water-soluble but the staggering vitamin B12 amount might cause acne.

People with vitamin B12 deficiency consume 2,000mcg of vitamin B12. And Zipfizz has 2,500 vitamin B12 content in it.

Aside from the vitamin B12 content, the vitamin C content is very high too. Zipfizz has 8335% of the daily tolerable vitamin C content.

Using any ingredient excessively does not make the product any healthier or better.

What Are The Antioxidants In Zipfizz?

Take a closer look at the packaging label of Zipfizz, the brand says Zipfizz gives you an energy boost from the natural antioxidants in it.

The “natural antioxidants” in Zipfizz are from green tea extract and grape seed extract.

According to this article, an average person needs 300mg of EGCG for it to fully function.

This antioxidant blend only contains 205mg of EGCG. But even inside the 205mg blend, 100mg caffeine is included too. This means the blend has 105 EGCG content in it.

Does Zipfizz Have Any Electrolytes?

Zipfizz markets its products containing electrolytes like magnesium, potassium, and antioxidants.

That being stated, even if you consume sufficient Zipfizz, you won’t be able to satisfy your body’s required need for the electrolytes.

Is Zipfizz Bad For You?

Zipfizz energy drinks are not bad for you if you drink them in moderation.

If you have a serving of Zipfizz every once in a while, it shouldn’t affect your diet or overall health that much.

Remember, moderation is KEY!

Zipfizz isn’t any better than any other energy drink, the caffeine content is slightly better.

There are multiple evidences that show that consuming caffeine in addition to working out regularly actually helps you lose weight faster.

Keeping the vitamins in mind, and knowing your limits, Zipfizz is not bad for you.

Can Zipfizz Help With Weight Loss?

The straightforward answer is, not really. This means if you’re drinking Zipfizz without proper diet and regular exercise, it won’t help you lose weight.

Is Zipfizz Gluten free?

As per the packaging label, Zipfizz is gluten-free.

Although the company didn’t mention the exact sources of the ingredients or whether it was made with cross-examined factories, so there’s some confusion about that.

Going gluten-free is one of the best decisions you can make if you are planning on losing weight.

How Many Flavors Does Zipfizz Have?

Zipfizz has a total of 10 interesting flavors. All of which are:

  • Black Cherry
  • Blueberry Raspberry

The Final Verdict

Zipfizz being a powdered energy drink, I personally think the brand did a great job.

Each tube containing 100mg caffeine, no sugar, and just 20 calories, that’s relatively not too much.

However, the vitamins in the energy drink and their content are quite alarming, so the company should try to lessen the vitamin content.

Other than that, solid and safe energy drink to drink.
