Not a coffee lover, but still addicted to caffeine? Then, you’re likely a drinker of energy drinks. No matter what flavor or amount of caffeine you’re looking for, there’s an energy drink out there for everyone (though some are better for you than others). But do you know how much caffeine is in the energy drink you’re drinking?
We’re taking a look at Neuro energy drinks today—specifically neuroSonic and neuroGasm—to see how much caffeine they contain.1 We’ll also look at how these drinks stack up caffeine-wise compared to some of the other popular energy drink brands (and even coffee!) on the market. Neuro energy drinks contain 100 mg of caffeine per 14.5-ounce bottle.
Here’s what you need to know about your neuroSonic and neuroGasm energy drinks!
What Is neuroSonic?
neuroSonic and neuroGasm are made by Neuro Brands, a company that makes lifestyle drinks. However, you might be more familiar with other products in their drink line, such as neuroBliss or neuroSleep. The goal of the company is to create drinks that are healthy for both the mind and the body, meaning drinks include natural flavorings from real fruit and vegan-friendly ingredients but have barely any sugar. neuroSonic and neuroGasm, in particular, are the brand’s versions of an energy drink.
How Much Caffeine Do Neuro Energy Drinks Have?
The neuroSonic and the neuroGasm both contain 100 mg of caffeine per 14.5 ounces, which isn’t that bad as far as energy drinks go. Most energy drinks contain 140 mg and up of caffeine per 16 ounces (and even 16 ounces of a Neuro energy drink should only contain roughly 112 mg of caffeine). So, if you need a caffeine fix but don’t want to overdo it, Neuro could be the right drink for you. In fact, the FDA provides a recommendation for no more than 400 mg of caffeine a day, so if your only caffeine intake is one of these a day, you’re doing pretty good!
How Do Neuro Energy Drinks Compare to Other Brands?
As we said above, Neuro energy drinks have way less caffeine in them than most energy drink brands do. But here, you’ll find a table with some of the more common brands listed, along with their caffeine contents, so you can see for yourself.
|Drink Name||Caffeine Content||Ounces|
|Rip It||160 mg||16|
|Red Bull||151 mg||16|
|Raze Energy||300 mg||16|
|Mountain Dew Kickstart||90 mg||16|
|Mountain Dew Energy||180 mg||16|
|Mountain Dew Amp||142 mg||16|
|Jolt Cola||90 mg||16|
|Gas Monkey||160 mg||16|
|G Fuel||300 mg||16|
|Full Throttle||144 mg||16|
|Cocaine/No Name||280 mg||12|
|5-Hour Energy Regular||200 mg||1.93|
As you can see, some of the energy drinks out there contain as much as 300 mg a can!
How Do Neuro Energy Drinks Compare to Coffee?
So, Neuro energy drinks have a relatively lower amount of caffeine than the majority of other energy drinks, but how do they compare to coffee’s caffeine content? Well, the answer depends on where you’re getting your coffee from, the type you’re drinking, the roast used, and the serving size. Unlike energy drinks where each can contains the exact same amount of caffeine, the caffeine content in coffee can range vastly depending upon the above variables.
An average cup of brewed coffee will contain roughly 95 mg of caffeine, though. But a shot of espresso averages 125 mg, and even decaf coffee can contain up to 7 mg. And don’t forget about coffee from fast food joints and coffee shops! A small Dunkin Donuts coffee can have 215 mg of caffeine, while a small McDonald’s coffee only contains 109 mg—that’s a pretty significant difference!
So, to sum up, neuroSonic and neuroGasm have approximately similar caffeine contents as a cup of brewed coffee you’d make at home or a small McDonald’s coffee.
If you’re looking for a caffeine fix that’s merely moderate, Neuro energy drinks could be the way to go. Both the neuroSonic and neuroGasm have only 100 mg of caffeine, which is comparable to your average cup of joe. The Neuro energy drink line might be a bit healthier than some of the other energy drink brands listed here, too, as they contain very little sugar. If you’re looking for a caffeine hit larger than that, we recommend going with another energy drink brand. Just be careful how much caffeine you consume a day, or you might see adverse side effects!
