Coffee Moka Pot Q&a Brew Coffee With Red Bull


Ruth asks…

How much caffeine is Ok per day?

I don’t mean how much for an uber healthy diet, just enough that won’t greatly affect your health. I don’t know if it’s in any way age dependant, but I’m 18 (if that makes any difference).

Could you by any chance put that in the format of cups of coffee or cans of Red Bull? 😛

Thanks. 🙂

Red Bull puts heart at risk, says study

A single can of energy drink Red Bull could raise the risk of a heart attack and stroke, researchers claim.

An Australian study found the sugar free version of the caffeine-loaded beverage causes the blood to become sticky and increases the chance of a life threatening clot.

Dr Scott Willoughby, who tested the drink on students, said: “One hour after they drank Red Bull, their blood systems were no longer normal. They were abnormal like we would expect in a patient with cardiovascular disease.

“If you add in other risk factors for cardiovascular disease – stress or high blood pressure – this could be potentially deadly.”

The study was carried out at the Cardiovascular Research Centre at the Royal Adelaide Hospital.

Red Bull spokeswoman Linda Rychter said the report would be assessed by the company’s head office in Austria.

But she added: “The study does not show effects which would go beyond drinking a normal cup of coffee.”

Red Bull is banned in Norway, Uruguay and Denmark because of health risks listed on its cans, but the company last year sold 3.5 billion cans in 143 countries. One can contains 80 mg of caffeine, around the same as a normal cup of brewed coffee.

Cans already carry health warning advising consumers not to drink more than two a day.

Dr Willoughby said Red Bull could be potentially deadly when combined with stress or high blood pressure.

“If you have any predisposition to cardiovascular disease, I’d think twice about drinking it,” he said.

Red Bull contains around 80mg of caffeine, around the same as a cup of filter coffee or two cups of instant coffee.

Donald asks…

What is red bull energy drink is it good for teens is it alcoholic ?

adminmok answers:

Red Bull is the brand name of an energy drink that originated in Denver, Colorado and, in a version adapted to Austrian tastes, is now popular throughout the world. Sold by Red Bull GmbH as an energy drink to combat mental and physical fatigue, it contains, per 150mL (16 U.S. Fl. Oz.) serving, about 21.5 g sucrose, 5.25 g of glucose, 50 mg of inositol, 1000 mg of taurine, 600 mg of glucuronolactone, vitamin B — 20 mg of Niacin, 5 mg of Vitamin B6, 5 mg of Pantothenic Acid and .005 mg of Vitamin B12 — and 80 mg of caffeine. The caffeine in one serving is similar to that found in an average cup of brewed coffee (typically 100 mg/250 ml cup, but 72 mg for a U.S. Regular 6 fluid ounces cup of coffee) or twice as much as found in a can of Coke (40 mg/330 ml can). A sugar-free version has been available since the beginning of 2003. Sugar-free Red Bull is sweetened with aspartame and acesulfame potassium, as opposed to sucrose and glucose.

The sale of Red Bull is prohibited in some countries, usually due to its taurine content or its alleged high level of caffeine. However, many countries which formerly banned Red Bull (and similar energy drinks) have revised their legislation to allow drinks containing taurine or higher amounts of caffeine, including Switzerland (1994) and Finland (2005). As of 2007, Red Bull remains prohibited as a soft drink in Norway, Uruguay, Denmark and Iceland.

Red Bull is subject to numerous claims of less adverse health effects. In 2001, the drink was investigated by the Swedish National Food Administration after being linked to the deaths of three consumers [7], and was completely cleared.[citation needed] It has been subject to a number of other health concerns regarding glucuronolactone, a precursor of taurine. Glucuronolactone is a naturally occurring chemical compound produced by the metabolism of glucose in the human liver. It has received some notoriety due to urban legends that it was a Vietnam War-era drug manufactured by the American government.[citation needed] The rumor goes on to say that it was banned due to several brain tumor-related deaths.[citation needed] The rumor has since been proven false, as neither the cited British Medical Journal article nor the “banning of its consumption” ever occurred. Due to the link with taurine, only energy drinks without taurine are sold in France, but infant formula sold there (and worldwide) is commonly supplemented with taurine.[citation needed] Furthermore, no warnings appear on the Food and Drug Administration website regarding its potential to cause brain tumors or other maladies

A common concern regarding the beverage is its supposedly high caffeine level. Proponents of the beverage counter critics by stating that a serving has roughly the same amount of caffeine as that found in a cup of coffee.

Studies have proven that there is a positive link between drinking Red Bull and reducing levels of cortisol, but it may also lead to a high blood-pressure problem if drunk to excess.
