Verve Energy Drink: The Biggest Ingredients List Ever

Verve Energy Drink takes the cake for having the most ingredients in a single beverage!

Interesting Fact: Vemma (Verve’s Parent Company) was recently shut down by a federal judge after a complaint was filed by the FTC for operating as a pyramid scheme.

Original Verve Label

  • 12 Vitamins

  • 80mg of natural caffeine

All in an 8.3 ounce can!

Verve Offers Some Strange Ingredients

Check out these ingredients: “Proprietary Wildcrafted Mangosteen, Organic Glyconutrient Rich Aloe Vera and Organic Green Tea Blend”.
In case you were wondering – the Verve has 25.2 grams of the above blend.

But take a look at the nutrition label I’ve posted. The mineral blend contains nearly half the periodic table of elements (okay – not really half – but you know what I mean).

  • Silver?
  • Cobalt?
  • Titanium?
  • Tin?

In a drink?  Titanium for one, is useless in the human body. It serves no biological function and most likely passes right out of the body.

There have been some cases reported where this mineral has accumulated in the body.

Tin also is useless in the human body as well as many of these other ingredients.

Natural Caffeine

The caffeine in Verve Energy Drink comes from two natural sources.

The drink contains 200mg of Guarana Seed Extract – which apparently yields 80mg caffeine. This is unusual – even the highest quality Guarana extracts only amount to a 22% caffeine content (which in this case would yield about 44mg caffeine). However, they are probably also adding in the caffeine amount from the green tea extract as well.

Updated Nutrition Labels

On the updated nutrition label Verve is a bit more ambiguous about what is actually in their energy drink. The older label above is much more straight forward. We’re not sure why the decided to be more secretive instead of full disclosure.


A Bit of an Overkill?

In all honesty, many of the mineral ingredients aren’t necessary and offer no health benefit. Verve Energy Drink may boast some fancy ingredients and the biggest ingredient list ever, BUT it probably is overkill.

Verve also comes in a sugar-free version, a Bold version with 120mg of caffeine and an energy shot. It’s also important to note that Verve is produced by Vemma a multilevel marketing type business similar to Amway and the likes. These types of products tend to come with a lot of hype surrounding them.

    Do you really know what Taurine is?

  • hockeyguy20

    you idiot…”plant based lithium”….are you serious right now or are you just plugging that garbage product? it doesn’t matter where an element comes from. when you put an element in your body, no matter where it originated from, it will eventually be metabolized as such. don’t try to fool people who are actually scientists. grow up.

    Silver is used in food coloring and is approved by the European Union. Titanium is also found in white foods to make them whiter. For example, you will find Titanium in non-dairy creamers, icing, and white salad dressings. Cobalt can be in the form of vitamin B12, and tin is absorbs by practically every fruit and vegetable. Though tin has no real physiological help, there are no more negative effects than any other trace minerals. However, tin can be a psychological boost in decreasing depression and fatigue.

    WOW…. using an energy drink to sit down all day is one of the least healthiest things in the world. try getting off your ass and exercising. Regularly. aka every day. Then get some sun. Not ten minutes of sun, stop hiding inside and GET SOME SUN and maybe then you wouldn’t have to use shit like this to stay awake. Taking this every day is like a drinking a coffee everyday (again, one of the worst things you can do. and don’t use the “verve is all natural” to counter-act that. Coffee is 100% plant based, and it’ll kill you just as fast.)

  • Ted

    “Coffee will kill you just as fast” I think you would have trouble backing that up with any scientific research.

    Hey. They use sucralose. Very deadly and lethal. Dont drink the sugar free kind. Period. Ever

  • Ted

    Very deadly and lethal? Probably being a tad dramatic there. 🙂

    Interesting how the Journal of Medicinal Food speaks about improved immune function, while the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry refers specifically to increased oxygen radical absorbance capacity, which sounds a bit different.

    Taurine is essential for cardiovascular function, and development and function of skeletal muscle, the retina and the central nervous system.A study of mice hereditarily unable to transport taurine suggests that it is needed for proper maintenance and functioning of skeletal muscles. In addition, it has been shown to be effective in removing fatty liver deposits in rats, preventing liver disease, and reducing cirrhosis in tested animals There is also evidence that taurine is beneficial for adult human blood pressure and possibly, the alleviation of other cardiovascular ailments (in humans suffering essential hypertension, taurine supplementation resulted in measurable decreases in blood pressure)

    But you DON’T pay a fee to promote the products. You buy the products so you can promote them.

    I’m not sure about my opinion regarding Verve. I am however quite sure that you can offer advice and opinions without being so nasty and condescending about it. How does rudeness help anyone? In addition, I don’t think her place of employment would appreciate her getting off her ass and getting some sun during work hours. It’s her job, she’s not sitting just to sit. People must make money to live, and as unfortunate as it is, many jobs are not health-friendly. And it’s not so easy to just switch to a different one. Perhaps you meant that she should be getting exercise and sun during off-hours or breaks and lunches. But if that is the case it was a little presumptuous of you to assume that she doesn’t do that. She never said that she is always sitting on her ass. She merely referenced working hours.
