5 Hour Energy Drink Ingredients and Side Effects


By now, many of us must have seen commercials for the 5 Hour Energy Shot Drink. The makers of 5-Hour Energy are advertising like crazy these days.If you haven’t seen the commercials yet, take a look.

The latest ones I saw were obviously targeted towards working professionals.  Many of us are familiar with the “2:30 feeling” that 5-Hour Energy seems to address.

Before anyone decides to consume some chemical concoction like this, it’s probably a good idea for them to research the possible side effects to the ingredients in 5 Hour Energy Shot.

Let’s first see what the ingredients in 5 Hour Energy Drinkare:
5 Hour Energy Ingredients Side Effects

Straight from the 5 hour energy website:

Vitamins
Vitamin B6
Vitamin B12
Niacin (Vitamin B3)
Folic Acid (Vitamin B9)
Energy Blend
Citicoline
Tyrosine
Phenylalanine
Taurine
Malic Acid
Glucuronolactone
Caffeine

The large quantities of B vitamins are not a concern because according to their site, the “vitamins are water-soluble which means that which is not absorbed by the body is simply expelled with no toxic effects.”

So that leaves us to question the ingredients in their energy blend.

Through my research, I found this video clip that a local news station did about the safety and side effects of 5 Hour Energy Drink.  The conclusion is that for the most part, 5 Hour Energy is generally considered safe in moderation except in what they consider “high levels”, which is 12 shots a day or more!

Take a look at what they had to say and feel free to share your own experiences with 5 Hour Energy!

  6. i thought the 5 hr energy drinks were good for you with all the b12 in it but my boyfriend was right tthey are very very bad for you he is so smart!

  7. Actually, I’d like to comment on the posts. All the B vitamins are in high levels in most if not all energy drinks. They are water soluble so your body does flush them out. The B vitamin to worry about in high doses is not B12 like one previous poster said but it is B6 (niacin). It will cause tingling and numbness in the arms and legs and can lead to nerve damage in extreme cases. About 75% of the population when taking a niacin contain product like this are susceptible to what is called “Niacin Flush”. A condition that is harmless but extremely uncomfortable. Symptoms include skin reddening, facial flushing, heat sensations, sweating, dizziness and skin tingling. Dosing greater than 250mg/day (or about 6 of these at 30mg each) is enough to cause liver changes in about 5%. Just because you don’t get “niacin flush” does not mean you’re not going through liver changes. Everything in moderation!
