Advantages: Quick boost.
Disadvantages: Side Effects after too much consumption, super expensive
Red Bull, like many other energy drinks, contains a myriad of chemicals and stimulants to give you that (much needed) boost of energy.
This has always been the staple energy drink, with its contents being, caffeine, taurine, buckets of sugar and stuff. Though it is not particularly healthy to drink this stuff in excess, it is very good at giving you a kick up the backside for at least 30 minutes, but after that, people can experience a number of effects...
After drinking a can or two, sometimes in rapid succession, this will probably make you want to pee, a lot, it runs through you as fast as plain water.
Drinking too many cans of this, even though a 'High' amount changes from person to person, it may give you dizziness, and drowsiness after the initial boost has worn off and the 'shakes', meaning you have probably consumed too much sugar and caffeine and need to stop.
The very worst case of this kind of drink, is drinking in extreme excess (like 6+ cans) can give the consumer heart rhythm abnormalities, but that is on the super extreme side.
When all is said and done though, Red Bull does exactly what it says on the tin, albeit rather costly.
Summary: Not too bad
