how much caffeine and other stimulants are in energy drinks

Many people don't realize how much caffeine and other stimulants are in energy drinks (Red Bull, etc).

And the labels usually don't help either. In fact, the labels often add to the confusion or misconceptions.

Guarana often appears on labels, but explain that it's just another source of caffeine...like coffee beans, cola nuts, and tea or mate leaves. Alert people that guarana is usually not counted as caffeine on labels...so the real caffeine count is even higher.
