:: Death By Redbull ::

:: Death By Redbull ::

Even since I vomitted my breakfast and lunch and blood
Last weekend, I've been careful with my dietary intake.
And so, while it was the usual bubbly and the flammable for everyone
It was copious volumes of redbull for me.

Two jugs, in fact.

Imagine my surprise when I was about to leave for home.
I stepped outside and felt the buzz.
Redbull overdose?

Redbull contains the following:

~Sucrose - a two-part sugar made of glucose and fructose. Known as table sugar or white sugar, it is found naturally in sugar cane and in beets.
~Glucose - a simple sugar made by the body from carbohydrates in food.
~Sodium Citrate - sodium citrate helps maintain pH levels in soft drinks.
~Taurine - a colorless crystalline substance obtained from the bile of mammals (you are a mammal, you produce Taurine, it's natural dummy and no, you can not OD on it).
~Glucuronolactone - a naturally-occurring metabolite, a carbohydrate produced by the human metabolic system.
~Caffeine - Redbull contains only 80mg of caffeine, less then 1/3rd of the caffeine you'll find in a Starbucks coffee.
~Inositol - A sugar-like vitamin B-factor is involved in the metabolism of cholesterol & fats; vital for hair growth & aids in brain cell nutrition.
~Niacinamide - Another name for vitamin B3.
~Calcium Pantothenate - Another name for vitamin B5
~Pyridoxine HCL - Another name for vitamin B6
~Vitamin B12 - Vitamin necessary for normal metabolism of nerve tissues and is active in carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism.
~Artifical Flavors

Maybe its the caffeine.
One thing I'm sure.
I am going to stay awake for quite a long while.
