Hype energy drink is created to give you a temporary boost on your performance. It’s certainly an effective formula that has earned its spot as a top drink in the motorsports industry.

It means you can definitely add Hype energy drink to your vegan diet.

Nutrition facts of Hype energy drink

Caffeine in Hype

Each serving of Hype energy drink has around 80mg of caffeine. As you may notice, this is a modest amount of caffeine to have in a 250ml can.

If regularly consume coffee, you can surely fit a can of Hype energy drink into your diet. Each cup of coffee contains around 80-100mg of caffeine. That’s why Hype energy drink can easily replace your usual cup of coffee.

As the caffeine amount is pretty low, I don’t think you’ll be experiencing any caffeine-related problems unless you are highly sensitive to caffeine. 

If you happen to consume over 400mg of caffeine, you might experience adverse effects such as:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Muscle Tremors
  • Tiredness
  • Palpitations

Sugar in Hype

The sugar content of Hype is 28g, which is quite a high amount.

According to this article, you must limit your sugar intake to 24g if you’re a woman and 36g if you’re a moderately active man. 

As the sugar content of Hype is quite close to the daily limits, remember to avoid consuming any other sugary products throughout the day.

Also, going over the daily limit can make you suffer from the following side effects:

  • Hunger
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Excess sweat
  • Discomfort
  • Anxiety

The 30g carbohydrate in Hype can also lead to a sugar crash. The symptoms of sugar crashes may include shakiness, fast heartbeat, weakness, nausea, and other problems.

On average, you can feel sugar crash within four hours. You can also eat the following to counter its effects:

  • Nuts and
  • Okra
  • Flax seeds
  • Beans 
  • Kimchi

You can also try the sugar-free variant of Hype energy drink to avoid experiencing any sugar-related problems from the beverage.

Calories In Hype Energy

You can get 120 calories in a single can of Hype, which is pretty high.

According to the NHS, you need to take around 2000 calories per day if you’re a woman and 2500 calories if you’re a man. If you happen to take much more than these levels, it can cause you to gain extra weight.

If you’re a vegan and planning to lose weight, you should only take between 1,600 to 1,800 calories daily. Be sure you have a go signal from your doctor if you prefer to try this diet. Because it seems like not everybody can handle it. 

You should consider the sugar-free version of Hype energy drink as it doesn’t contain any calories.

What B Vitamins Do Vegans Take?

According to this article, vegans must get enough vitamin B12. Lucky for you, Hype Energy has lots of B Vitamins. 

Having B vitamin deficiency can negatively affect your immune system. This is because this element helps protein metabolism and the formation of transporting your red blood cells. 

Do you want to know more about vitamin B12? Watch this video below.

This video will show you how important vitamin B12 is for vegans.

In the same way, vitamin B6 or pyridoxine can also help the function of your metabolism and immune system. 

On the other hand, you can get Vitamin B2 or riboflavin from plants or animal products like dairy, eggs, fish, and meat. As a vegan, you should take at least a couple of good plant-based sources of riboflavin each day. This vitamin helps your body transform food into energy. 

Aside from B vitamins, it’s also essential that you get enough zinc, iron, and calcium

Where to Buy Hype?

Hype energy drink is widely available in convenience stores. But if it happens to be unavailable due to high demand, you can order from their website.

If you’re looking for a platform wherein you can choose your own sets or bundles, you can also order from Amazon

Hype Energy Drink Price 

When it comes to the price, Hype energy isn’t that expensive. You can have a regular version of Hype for only around $1 per 250ml can. 

On the other hand, I bought the Hype sugar-free version for $3.50 per can at a convenience store. This one isn’t cheap. This certainly isn’t the most affordable option out there, compared to my favorite brand, which I can buy for only around $1 per sachet. 

Hype Energy Flavors 

If you’re looking for something exciting to drink, you’ll be glad to know that Hype offers lots of amazing flavors. The flavors include:

  • Hype Energy Twisted
  • Hype Energy Mojito
  • Hype Energy Ice Berry Max
  • Hype Energy Twisted (Tropical Punch)
  • Hype Energy Enlite (Zero-Sugar)
  • Hype Energy MFP ( Zero-Sugar)
  • Hype Energy MFP ( Non-sugared version)

Other Notable Mentions

Conclusion

Hype energy drink is a great choice if you’re looking for something new in your vegan diet. It sure has enough amount of caffeine and taurine with a mix of other nutrients. 

Its B vitamins can surely benefit your body’s overall health. Although I might say, it lacks common energy drinks ingredients like creatine and L-Tyrosine. 

However, while it’s beneficial for your workout, the 28g of sugar on it is something you have to think about thoroughly. Consuming that amount regularly might lead to some harmful effects on your body. 

Anyway, you can try Hype energy drink if you want to, but for me, REIZE is still the best option!
