Moxie Energy Drink's Strange Ingredients

As far as caffeine is concerned, Moxie isn't different from most other energy drinks, in fact, Citrus is rather low in caffeine.  But, there are a few ingredients in Moxie that are absent from most other energy drink labels.

Choline: This is similar to B vitamins and occurs naturally in the body. Believed to help with endurance.

Gentian Root Extract: This gives Moxie a unique flavor and possibly has digestive benefits. People with low blood pressure should avoid this herb.

Brominated Vegetable Oil: This is used to keep drink ingredients from seperating, but is banned in Europe and under FDA investigation. 

EDTA: (sugar-free version) This is used as a preservative and may help fight fatigue, but according to WebMD it can have a whole host of side-effects. Here's a snippet: 

EDTA can cause abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, low blood pressure, skin problems, and fever.
