    Well, I have exams tomorrow. Not Worried one bit, I've gotten the highest marks in the whole year several times when we've done past papers.
    But A friend and I've decided to have a Redbull before we go into the exams tomorrow.
    Apparently, not only does it give you physicaly Energy, but it also helps you think Quicker.

    Now I'm not too sure about it, and I've been thinking that it'd do the complete opposite and make me work to a lower standard, But I can't be sure.

    I probably sound like a right Twonk.. But do any of you know the real effect of Redbull on the Body? And do you think it's reccomendable to drink it before my Exams?

    Thanks in advance.

    Redbull does absolutely nothing to me except keep you awake... Which would result into you thinking faster wouldn't it?

    Im a caffine addict ( no seriously im not saying that I AM a caffine addict) I LOVE redbull and its my favourite energy drink, But ive only noticed that it increases your heart rate, making your metabilism speed up, in theroy this would pump more blood to your brain making you think better, but i would recomend just taking memory pills as ive never noticed my seld thinking quicker when on any sort of energy drink.

    I've just had a brainwave....
    I am, quite literally, addicted to Coffee, and have been for a long time.(Yes, i do understand it's now good for me etc etc)

    Well, now that I'm tolerant to Coffee... Would that mean That I'm tolerant to the effects of Redbull, as basically, they both contain alot of Caffeine?

    sweet...hehe

    have you done yagger bombs??

    god bless redbull for those..hehe
     
  8. redbull is a stimulent. its basically a shot of caffine. if you dont drink coffee on a regular basis OR soda then redbull will keep you up.

    if youre a caffine junkie like me, go to your local pharmacy and get those "5 hour shots" its basically in a small red bottle and it is basically a high dose shot of caffine that will keep you in check! its insane and works really well.

    they also sell them at vitamin world, GNC ect

    just prepare yourself though, once the caffine wears off, you will most likely crash from exaustion

    Well I aint got the time to go to a Pharmacy now >.< It's 9.30 PM here in England :p
    So basically, as we're addicted to Coffee TLC, the Caffeine in other drinks really have no effect?

    Uh, just go to bed on time before and prepare for a test the way that God meant to. :rolleyes:

    It'll screw you over way before you can ever focus that energy to actually helping you.

    Caffiene isn't a very good stimulant anyways.... you want the prescription narcolepsy kinda stuff :ihih:

    if you drink redbull, you could do well but when red bull wears off you will just sleep through your exam:lol:

    just get a big tub of coffe in your jacket, get a small tube attached to your mouth, drink coffe through the exam. . .

    do what you want, your obvi gonna like get full marks anyway. . .
     

  12. i drink my coffee black from time to time

    if you drink it light with alot of sugar then change the regime to black then it will DEFF hit you.

    if not, then youre SOL :(

    anyone remember the soda "surge?" hahaha wow that used to make me so hyper when i was a kid more so than any other beverage ive ever drank lol

    too bad it was pulled off the market- caused cancer :yikes:

    Pretty sure surge has been remarketed as "vault" :yikes:

    Go in clean dude. Seriously, best thing for you is an honest study session and good night sleep. Can't stress it enough.

    Actually the cafine in an energy drink has a greater effect becuase of other stimulants in the drinks (Taurine,Riboflavin, Niacin-im reading these off a empty can of full throttle i drank today)

  17. it sounds terrible but if you have the flavored ones like vanilla or the roasted columbian or wtvr cockamanie flavor itll taste a lot better.

    also, try espresso or cappachino. those have alot more caffine than coffee :D

    im a bad influence lol

    best of luck on your test :devil:
