5-Hour Energy, What About Caffeine


5-Hour Energy, What about caffeine?



You may have seen the recently ubiquitous campaign from 5-Hour Energy discussing the caffeine content of the drink.

This was in response to the recent 5-Hour Energy FDA report which triggered questions like Is 5-Hour Energy Safe?

5-Hour Energy Harmful Dose
Per 5-Hour Energy, you’d need to consume 40+ bottles of 5-Hour Energy in a day for it to harm you, that is ~ 8,000 mg caffeine in a day (each bottle contains ~200 mg caffeine) - clearly an amount way beyond any reasonable consumption.



5-Hour Energy Safe Dose
The company recommends consuming no more than 2 bottles of 5-Hour Energy a day.
