    I don't care. Sipping on a Monster ultra rosa atm. Feels good.

      I just wish they would stop rotating out all the good flavours and putting in garbage. Also more sugar free versions. Rosa is probably the best currently going.

          They still sell it where I live. They stopped selling the ultra blue for some reason when it was my favorite.

            All of these should still be available, maybe try other shops or online?

    Not as bad as the mental fatigue caused by obsessing over whether or not they are good for you.

    I'm tired of pretending caffeine is bad for you. Just don't have it late in the afternoon and don't abuse it like anything else.

        This.
        Drinking 10 coffees in one sitting or doing a nicokado-style binge eating session is bad too. 1 can every once in a while is definetly not going to kill you unless you have already some heart and kidney problems

    God yes. They absolutely ruin your teeth, and potentially your bones if they're habitual. Terrible for heart health, too. Murmurs, tachycardia, arrhymia, etc.
    If you want a healthy caffeine source, black coffee or green tea are your best bets.
    If you don't care, drink what you want. It's your body, who the fuck cares? Live fast, leave a giant coffin, reps for jesus and all that bro shit.

          Depends on the kind, a can of red bull has about as much caffine as a cup of coffee

          Lol no they're not, most of them at least
          The average energy drink has 30mg of caffeine per 100ml, so a 0.5L can, which is the most common, has 150mg in it. This is about the same as a medium or large cup of coffee
          A 0.25L can (regular Red Bull size) has 75mg, like a small cup of coffee

        Caffeine can cause all of those in high doses, but the additives make it worse in the case of energy drinks. Particularly arrhythmia, for some reason.

        You'd think gymbros would understand the need to be consistent, but apparently they only apply that to habits.

      Wait what? How are they bad for bones? What if I drink energy drinks w no sugar and brush my teeth, or in the worst case, you are just consuming caffeine and sugar

        Hyper-acidic. Leeches calcium from your bones to balance your body's pH. It's a lot better if you brush, but still bad - like rinsing acid off your skin when it tingles, the burn is already there.

            Enamel dissolves below 5.5 pH
            Most sodas are clustered around 3-4.
            Stomach acid is around 3
            Red Bull is around 3 as well, and Rockstar is all the way down to 2.5.

            Even if you want to make the argument that we're specifically talking about Monster since it's in the OP's pic, that's still about 3.5

            They're ALL hyper-acidic, from a dental point of view.

    Caffeine is bad for you as it will hinder your recovery by negatively affecting your sleep. Sleep is when your muscles grow.
    And no, just because you can sleep well after drinking caffeine doesn't mean your body isn't affected by it you humongous retarded fat powershitter gorilla fag

      Bitch-bro, I drink a double loaded americano before bed.
      Just up your dose. At a certain point caffeine constricts your blood vesssels enoguh to make you sleepy. That and do more exercise, if you're having any trouble falling asleep, you're not doing enough in the day.

    Wish most of these drinks weren't so sour. The low pH definitely isn't good for teeth.
