Transcript of A Can of Bull?

A Can of Bull?
Caffeine, Glucose, Glucuronolactone, Inositol, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Pyridoxine HCL, Sucrose, and Taurine provide energy. Your metabolism burns calories which results in energy. Pantothenic Acid and Pyridoxine HCL stimulates your metabolism.
Glucose, Fructose, and Sucrose are also an energy source used in energy drinks. Some energy drinks have at least one of these simple sugars. All three of these sugars are converted into ATP.
How are the ingredients in these drinks helpful to someone expending a lot of energy, e.g., a runner?
Does your analysis substantiate the claim that this is an "energy drink"?
Are the product claims legitimate? Why?
When something gives a energy it fuels us to be able to work.
The strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity.
Should you simply buy a can of Coke® rather than a Red Bull®?
In terms of calories, Red Bull has the least with 110 calories and Coke has 140.
They both have carbonated water, sucrose and caffeine.
The differnece is Coke has phosphoric acid and natural flavors but no glucose, sodium citrate, taurine, glucuronlactose, inositol, niacin, D-pantothenal, pyridoxine HCL, vitamin B12, artificial flavors, and colors.
Red Bull is better than Coca Cola if you want more energy.
Evaluate in terms of basic physiology and biochemistry, the statement: A lack of sleep causes a lack of energy.
Sleep loss affects the bodies metabolism. It doesn't store carbohydrates and the body isn't able to disperse the ATP throughout the body. Resulting in the body not having enough energy.
Could your drink serve different purposes for different consumers?
We've all had those morning where it seems impossible to get out of bed. We all need that little boost of energy to get us through the day. Red Bull can be that little push to help us accomplish any activities throughout the day. Anybody who drinks it will get the same purpose, energy. No matter who drinks it.
What is the physiological role of each of the molecules?
B-Group Vitamins help maintain normal body functions.
What is the normal physiological responce to increased intake of sugars? to increased intake of caffeine?
Sugars: It results in an increase of insulin production, and extra stored glucose in your liver. If the stored glucose is not used it turns into fat.

Caffeine: Heart rate is increased, insomnia occurs, get the "jitters" and your blood pressure is increased.
Which ingredients provide energy? How do they do that?
In what ways might the ones that do not have a metabolic energy source (caffeine) provide the perception of increased energy after consumption?
When we say something gives us "energy," what does that mean? What is a biological definition of energy?
Taurine-An amino acid that helps move minerals throughout our system and generates nerve impulses.
Sucrose and glucose produce energy in the form of ATP.
Caffeine-Increases blood pressure
Alpine Spring Water-Helps all molecules combine with eachother
Which ingredients contribute to body repair, i.e., which help build or rebuild muscle tissue?
Glucuronolactone is found in connective tissue in animals. Niacin is a subunit of protein. Pantothenic acid is in protein, and Pyrixdoxine HCL helps maintain healthy skin, hair, and nails. These are mostly made of protein.
Is there such thing as a"sugar high"?
Studies for caffeine have shown ingesting 3-9mg of caffeine an hour before physical activity improves endurance.Other ingredients such as glucose, sucrose, glucuronolactone, and inositol are types of sugars that produce energy. Pantothenic Acid helps make molecules out of fats and carbohydrates for energy. Pyridoxine HCL is used for energy production also.
"Sugar high" is the term used to describe the energetic behavior after eating foods with a high level of sugar. The answer is no, there is no such thing as a "sugar high." When glucose enters the body, the pancreas releases insulin.
If the pancreas releases in excess amount of insulin, it is known as hypoglycemia. Which is the complete opposite of a sugar high.
en·er·gy drink
Any of various types of beverage that are considered a source of energy containing a high percentage of sugar and/or caffeine or other stimulant.
Due to all the ingredients in Red Bull that provide energy, this is an "energy drink." Also because it has high levels caffeine, sugar, and other stimulants.
The marketing claims Rhonda presented are true. It is for periods of phsical and mental exertion, mainly physical. Caffeine and Taurine does improve your concentration and reaction speed. Niacin, Pantothenic acid, and Pyridoxine HCL do stimulate your metabolism.
