This is a sponsored post; I was compensated for my time writing about Bang Energy. However all my thoughts are my own and came directly from my own research online and from www.TheTruthAboutBang.com
The CEO of Bang Energy Drink has made quite a few false claims regarding the Bang drink, which is quite concerning. I’m not one to drink energy drinks, as they increase the risk of heart disease and stroke. However, I want to shed some light on the claims made by the CEO by using my public platform to get the word out and educate, to make sure others are aware of the truth behind these ludicrous statements. So, here is the truth about Bang Energy Drink.
BANG is not your stereotypical high sugar, life-sucking soda masquerading as an energy drink! High sugar drinks spike blood sugar producing metabolic mayhem causing you to crash harder than a test dummy into a brick wall. Power up with BANG’s potent brain & body-rocking fuel: Creatine, Caffeine, & BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids)
Claim: “Bang contains an enhanced form of creatine”
Truth: Bang does not have creatine, at all.
Yes, you read that right. Their product was tested, and the super creatine they claim to have is distinctly different from creatine.
Claim: “Bang has a valid patent on ‘Super Creatine'”
Truth: Bang does not have a patent on creatine.
In an interview, the CEO claimed to have a patent on the ‘super creatine”. The Bang cans also have a patent ribbon, however the United States Patent and Trademark office has rejected or cancelled all claims on the patent.
Claim: “Bang can reverse mental retardation”
Truth: Bang cannot reverse mental disabilities.
In the same interview, the CEO stated that as you get older, you become more ‘mentally retarded’. He states that his drink can help solve mental retardation. Besides the offensive manor which he states this, it is absolutely false that Bang Energy Drinks can help disabilities.
Claim: “Bang can help cure Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, and other forms of dementia”
Truth: There are no cures for these conditions.
While there are treatments for these conditions, there are no cures. The CEO of Bang Energy Drinks stated in his interview that his drink can cure these diseases and other forms of dementia, which is completely inaccurate.
Claim: “Bang contains a meaningful amount of BCAA’s and CoQ10”
Truth: Bang contains minimal amounts of BCAA’s and CpQ10’s.
Testing of Bang confirms that Bang does contain BCAAs and CoQ10, however the amounts are significantly lower than those shown to have a meaningful impact on the body. The tests confirm .15 BCAA grams per can which is 100 times lower than the amount tested in research cited by VPX (See lawsuit below).
If you drink Bang energy drinks, be aware of these falsely labeled ingredients and claims. It is important that you are aware of what you are putting in your body, for the sake of your physical and mental health. There has been no formal testing to determine Bang’s safety on the body or brain. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been enough coverage on this information, as well as the false claims regarding Bang Energy Drinks. It is still being sold in stores, and people are still consuming this product. By creating this post, my hope is to have the FDA prioritize the investigation into Bang Energy Drinks, as well as to spread awareness to Bang consumers.
