Quite Possibly the Most Powerful Energy Drink Ever


With so many energy drinks on the market, officials and consumers alike are concerned with the amount of caffeine in energy drinks and shots.

This has a lot to do with the reports of the recent deaths that have been blamed on energy beverages.

One of our goals at Caffeine Informer is to educate the consumer about how much caffeine is in the beverages and products that fill our store shelves.

Consumers can go to our Caffeine Database and find the most caffeinated drinks, but because there’s a lot of drinks, in varying sizes and caffeine content we’ve made things easier.

Based on caffeine/ounce alone, we list below the most caffeinated energy drinks and energy shots listed in our database.

Top 10 Most Powerful Energy Drinks/Shots

Drink Feature: VPX Redline History

VPX Redline used to be #1 with their concentrated VPX Redline Fat Burner. However, this version has since been taken off the market.

The below account is based on The Original Redline which was a 240ml concentrated liquid.

Redline now distributes Redline RTD, Redline Extreme, Redline princess, and Redline Power Rush some of which are listed above.

All of these new version contain the original formula, but watered down.

One of the most powerful energy drinks is called VPX Redline Fat Burner. Amazon is lacking a little information, so here’s a little more:

Check out this freaky scientific VPX breakthrough: RED LINE®: is the only matrix ever developed to shred fat through the shivering response in the body. By shivering the body burns huge amounts of stored body fat for energy in an effort to keep the body warm. That’s not all! In addition to shivering, you’ll also be sweating up a thermogenic storm. The combined mechanisms of these two processes results in unparalleled fat loss!

What fun. Now, it’s pretty obvious looking at the ingredients that there’s caffeine. But get this: all of the aforementioned goodness, and the serving size is FOUR ml. About one TENTH of an ounce. The whole bottle has 240 ml, or 60 servings. Basically, a bottle of this, less than the size of a normal can of coke, WILL kill you. This is nothing to be playing around with.

I have friends. Not just normal friends, mind you. The kind of friends that voluntarily live on the streets. The kind of friends who, when drinking, race to forgetting. The kind of friends who take caffeine pills, ephedrine pills, and aspirin.. all at once. One, in particular, drinks and consumes over a gram of caffeine daily, to stave off the headaches. So you know this is a serious review:

oh yeah, it’s definitely 90% caffeine. the aftertaste is unmistakeable. the best part is that since i didn’t have my normal “dose” this morning, i probably won’t actually feel sh*t.

[10 minutes later]

the caffeine kicked in a lot faster than i expected. though in retrospect, it normally does when it’s in syrup form and tastes like ass.

feel oddly cold too. took me a minute to realize that while i still was warm, it was that ‘shiver’ reflex kicking in. it’s a lot like when
you get a chill at the back of your neck, but somewhat continuous.

So what’s in this magical bottle of awesome? Caffeine, Green Tea, Yerba Mate, 5-HTP (5 hydroxy-1-tryptophan), cAMP, Yohimbe, Evodiamine, and Vinpocetine. And a few other things.

I know, I know, so here’s some more info:

cAMP is cyclic adenosine monophosphate. It supposedly “sparks many intercellular processes.” Whatever that means. Increased concentrations supposedly raise thyroid horomone levels, and help fat burning (would help explain why it’s in a fat-burning supplement).

Yohimbe is a bark extract from a tree in Africa. It’s considered a natural aphrodisiac, and sold here to treat impotency, dilate pupils, and stimulate fat loss. It can also mess with your blood pressure, so watch out.

Evodiamine is derived from some Chinese fruit called Evodia Rutaecarpa. Supposedly burns fat.

Vinpocetine is an alkaloid derived from some periwinkle plant. It is used in Europe, Japan, and Mexico to treat crebrovascular and cognitive disorders. Some people claims it elevates metabolism, but with no proof.

And the interesting one in the group: 5-HTP. I made sure to spell it out, so the smart ones in the group have already figured out the key: Tryptophan. It’s the same stuff in turkey that makes you sleepy, and there’s scientific evidence of it. The 5-HTP compound is sometimes used to treat mild depression since, somehow, it can increase serotonin levels. It can also affect appetite, which may be part of why they put it in here. The other part? When you’re jacking up a drink with this much caffeine, you’re going to get jitters and “scatterbrain.” This may actually cut the disconnected thoughts out and allow you to think normally, but still give you the energy effects of caffeine. Awesome.

Apparently you can buy this stuff at places like Super Supplements, GNC, and even some 7-11s. The concentrate isn’t something you should take a guzzle of. Or even a large sip. If you search on the internet, you can see some people who took the recommended dose, and started blacking out towards the end of a workout. Blacking out. 4 mililiters. Damn. There’s also a ready-to-drink version (I would bet that’s the one at 7-11), and half a bottle is all that’s recommended. Pay attention to it. People are comparing the 1/2 bottle to a full hit of ephedra. Unless you’ve done that before and know the effect it has on your body, don’t go doing anything macho with this one.

Just for poignant measure, look at this review:

I recently purchased the liquid form of redline at a local 7 Eleven store.

It was the first time I have ever drank an energy drink that had such an affect. With in a few minutes , I started to sweat and shake. Being familiar with the effects of narcotics, I must say the feeling felt a lot like cocaine feels.

The most disturbing trait is that my penis shriveled up like I just got out of the icy cold ocean. I can’t help but think that this product will be taken off the market. The effects are too strong for some minors and may not be safe for people on certain medication which are yet to be known.

And this one:

I tried Redline today while heading to work. I am a huge fan of RedBull & Diet Rockstar. I am 33 years old & in excellent condition.

Having not read the warning label I drank the whole bottle within 5 minutes. Within 10 minutes I was blacking out behind the wheel & shaking uncontrollably. I pulled over at a gas station — I was having difficulty in swallowing and could not stand, breathe or see straight.

I could not even walk for the convulsions. A bystander called the paramedics. Needless to say – my blood pressure was sky high & I thought I was on my way out.

I feel this drink is extremely dangerous & should not be on the market. There needs to be a very visible warning label not to drink the whole bottle for beginners. It has been 5 hours now & I still do not feel normal.

This drink could seriously kill someone if not informed.
I am sorry but I will never drink this again nor recommend it to fellow peers.

  • T3h caffinator

    wow u seriously SHOULD read the warning labels on caffene drinks – u could have been killed- thus the end of this great, great site

  • James

    Wow, caffinator. Would you check a soda can for a warning label? No? You wouldn’t have any prior knowledge.

    And just…Son of bitch…pardon my language. Some pople are touchy about that. 4 ml?

  • element

    1337, I’m getting some of that

  • E Dub

    Dude, This is the shit all up and throught this awesome ass site. I think they need this in wisconsin the effects seem to be simular to that of M J or weed so plz send me some and ill test the potency. P.S Fuckin right

  • jarryd

    i love ur website and i love coke even thoy its full of caffeine

  • josh

    im addicted to weed and caffeine tablets i have a weight problem and im addicted to cocaine

  • human

    dude that’s some serious shit. It needs to be put on the caffeine kill-list.

  • Tman

    Whomever is selling this stuff can’t be all that bright. Putting something on the market that can send people to the hospital or make them blackout while driving is just opening them up to some mega liability lawsuits.
    Don’t sell a bottle that you can only drink half of. Reduce the potency by two thirds, water it down, flavor it up and increase profits. If you want to sell a concentrate, then sell it seperate in a little brown bottle with an eyedropper, and instructions on how many drops to add to juice up the drink. This puts the potency responsibility in the hands of the consumer.

  • NastyDawg6r

    I find it quite interesting that whenever something is semi-dangerous, people start talking about getting rid of it, or restrictions. The last time I checked, you, as an adult, are responsible for your own actions (i.e. Taking pills, or drinking energy drinks). Let “them” sell their LEGAL drink how ever “they” wish, and quit being such sissies.

    Creeping Jesus, I could have used a can or two of that crap in Iraq.

  • Fang

    I’m fairly sensitive to Caffeine and a few other ingredients listed in this thing. It’s a very stupid idea to sell this shit as is, they’re be a dead soon and the maggot’s will come out of the woodwork to try and prosecute the case…….they’ll win. Supplementation has really been attacked the last 50 years and product manufacturers should be putting out safe products. Not WMD’s like this…..some kid will chug one and that’ll be all she wrote.

  • JA

    Hey, I found how much caffeine is in this 4 ml shot… click on “The Vitamin Shoppe” and it says in the statistics of it that there is 910mg of caffeine per shot, that’s NINE HUNDRED TEN.

    Someone’s going to get killed, soon, this is horrible.

  • Evil Monkey


    That’s 910 mg of their proprietary blend. While a lot, it’s not 910 of straight caffeine.. that’s just unbelievable 🙂

  • James

    They should at least put a nice fat warning label on it. Make it take up about a quarter, to half the can area. I can’t believe you people want to take this. Take a safe dose, like 1 ML.

  • Wolf

    I actually had the pre-mixed redline:

    VPX Redline Pre-Mixed

    It was awesome. It was 6$(CND) for 1 can. The guy at the health/workout supplement store says it had just been deemed illegal but he was allowed to sell his remaining cans. I didn’t do any sports after taking it but I couldn’t stop smiling, literally.

    My friend who had not eaten anything, hadn’t seen the “do not drink on an empty stomach” warning, puked about 30 minutes after drinking it.

    I must repeat that I’m talking about the dilluted stuff. I can in my opinion is equivalent to about 3-4 cans of redbull in terms of energy.

  • joe

    yea i had half a can before working out and the other half 2 hours later with gatorade i feel fine (knock on wood) but only on a full stomach i wont drink the entire can in 1 day anymore

  • Tina

    dude, i drink this shit everyday and i’m so addicted must i say… and not only that but my tolerance has gone up crazily so i must drink one whole can to feel good… but my heart might explode i’m very scared….

    yikes but it feels so fucking gooood

  • I followed/read the warning label, ate something, and only drank half the bottle. I must say I’ve never been so wired besides when partaking in illegal narcotics. It’s been many years since I’ve done that, but drinking this 1/2 a bottle brought back the fond memories of not sitting still, having to do something to occupy my attention, as well as having an odd t aste in my mouth. It was quite fun, although my girlfriend might disagree. I think I annoyed her to the brink that she said she’d leave me if I drank it again.

    this is fun in a can, as long as you drink responsibly.

  • James

    Been looking for this for a few weeks since I saw this review,… walked by a gnc and wondered if they had it… bought 4 bottles.
    Saturday around 6 had half bottle played some warcraft about 30 mins later realized i left my phone in the car, at the time I was just having a hell of caffiene high,… walked to car came back in sat down,. and boom it hit me.. what a great rush…. down the rest of the bottle and had another around 11pm…. needless to say… 8am rolled around and I finally went to bed. woke up around 1pm, and had a full bottle…. next thing I new I had just played warcraft for 8 straight hours and diddnt even notice it! Had my last bottle at 10pm and looked at my clock and it was 4am!

    Good times….
    I usually drink 4-6 of the big monster light cans a day 4 in the morning and a couple in the afternoon… If this stuff does what it claims, I’m going to be real happy!

    Needless to say,. I had no appetite sunday, none what so ever, no cravings..
    For the record, I weigh about 470lbs.
    The monsters and stuff have tremendously helped me in my weight loss, in the last year ive gone from size 64-54.

  • macker

    Seriously… after reading some of the comments here, to the effect of “this is dangerous! it shouldn’t be sold!”

    Sniffing Scotch Guard is dangerous. Huffing butane is dangerous. Drinking a couple bottles of Robitussin DM is dangerous. Drinking rubbing alcohol is dangerous (and then some). If a person is too stupid to read the warning label and “use as directed”, I call that natural selection.

    As a couple people have said, something having the potential to be dangerous does not mean it should be illegal… but if that does become the case, please, take people’s cars away from them! A person can cause a lot more harm to a lot more people with a car, than nearly anything else… including guns, for that matter.

    Honestly, how many warning labels do we need on stuff? Does anyone really read the surgeon general’s warning on a pack of cigarettes, and more importantly, does anyone really need to be told it’s bad for them, when they buy the pack?

  • Girl

    Drank the whole bottle loved it but i can take that my body has seen worse, i haven’t seen any weight loss yet. i have been taking it once a day for a week. Great rush don’t feel the freeze though or shivers whatever i don’t feel the cool part. Best energy drink i have ever tried and i have tried everything.
