Shakeology Compared To Red Bull
I have a friend who drinks 3-5 Red Bulls a day, he insists that it gives him energy and makes him feel great. To prevent from embarrassing him, I won’t use this friend’s real name here on the internet, let’s just say his name rhymes with Matt SchmicFarlane :). I was over at “Matt’s” house a few days ago and noticed a garbage bag of empty cans out in the garage. Upon further investigation, I seen that the bag was completely full of empty Red Bull cans, there had to be over a hundred of them in there.
I said, “Damn! How many Red Bull’s do you friggin drink?”
Matt replied, “About 5 a day, I love em”.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m guilty of drinking a Red Bull myself on occasion in the past, but that was 10 years ago when I was in my early 20’s, and it was usually mixed with some Vodka and acted as a ‘warm up” drink before heading out to the bar, that’s just what early twenty somethings do. But 5 Red Bulls a day! I’m not a doctor or anything, but 5 Red Bulls a day can’t be good for you.
I was curious to see what what FoodFacts.com had to say about Red Bull and what rating they gave it. FoodFacts.com gives Red Bull a rating of 13 out of 100, which is very low. At $2 per can, you’d think people would want something with some nutritional value in it. For example, Shakeology cost about $4 per serving, but is loaded with nutrition and all natural ingredients that will make you feel energized throughout the entire day. FoodFacts.com give Chocolate Shakeology a rating of 97 out of 100, which is great. Check out the Shakeology VS Red Bull comparison below:
As you can see from the above comparison, there really is no comparison, Shakeology is easily the superior product. It amazes me how people are always complaining about the price of Shakeology, which is loaded with healthy ingredients, but will pay $2 for 1 can of Red Bull or $3 for 1 shot of a 5 Hour Energy, both products that contain very little to no nutritional value at all. The logic really makes no sense and is almost humorous in a sick sense of humor sort of way.
Red Bull Is Banned In France
It’s true, Red Bull is completely banned in France, and the company was also forced to reformulate the product in Turkey, reducing the amount of caffeine by almost half, to prevent from being banned there also. In Sweden, Denmark, and Norway, Red Bull is used for medicinal purposes, and in Japan, until just recently, it was only sold in pharmacies.
So what’s the point? The point is, if you’re willing to shell out top dollar from products that are harmful to you, don’t you think you deserve to treat yourself to something that is actually GOOD for you. One day you’re going wake up and be 50, with heart troubles, and general health problems and decide that it might be time to give up the Red Bulls. By then, the damage is done and it’s too late. The time to start is now.
