May 25, 2019 Reply JJ Watt Death in a can😂 May 26, 2019 Reply Charvos 400 calories is not equal to a quarter pound of fat. 3500 calories is equivalent to a pound of fat, 400 calories is only 1/8.75 of a pound of fat. And, it would only be stored as fat if these calories were taken in excess to your daily maintenance. If you can fact check and prove me wrong then go ahead but as far as I know what you said is false.

Thanks for the video. June 27, 2019 Reply life is life 0:26 monster energy gives you wiings 😂😂😂😂😂😂 June 29, 2019 Reply Tim Sharpley Bottom line is the caffeine and the niacin are the main drivers in these drinks. The vitamins on the top are simply for marketing purposes. Caffeine dependence is a real problem so energy drinks should be consumed in moderation and never in the evening. Don’t be stupid and drink five of them in a row like those kids. Stay away from the sugary versions of energy drinks like the one he has in the video and opt for the sugar free versions. In a way, one sugar free energy drink is really no different than drinking a large black coffee. They’re all just different methods of caffeine consumption.

Why and how is it different from the B3 found in energy drinks? Why is it called exactly the same, shouldn't it have a different name if it is different from the B3 found in energy drinks (dietary supplements)? Are there any limits to that type of B3? If I drink 1 monster can, and also eat 2 chicken breasts, am I under the 35mg B3 limit?

I would say on average I have a litre a day (2 big cans). I'm athletic type although I don't do cardio as often as anaerobic exercises. I acknowledge I'm adicted as my mind drives me to get one before doing any demanding activity (physical or mental). I'm very conscious it could have very negative effects on people, so far I myself haven't experienced anything harsh except some very few days it'll make me nervous, hyperactive and later fatiged from the previous hyperactiveness. I'm not sure what my relationship with this drinks is, nor how does the excess on vitamins and caffeine affect me, sometimes it works and I feel focused and others it doesn't really work as it's marketed but it always makes me happy, there might already be some placebo effect. I'm a little bit ashamed that some days I've gone way too far and drank about 2 litres maybe more, without any noticeable effect other than the one I get with the first can. I'll plan to give it up, but I don't know if I'm gonna develop some abstinence syndrome. It kind of scares me.
