THE SHOCKING TRUTH ABOUT BANG ENERGY
If you aren’t aware, there have been many recent claims about Bang energy drink that has managed to catch the attention of many consumers. Bang products are sold every day in the USA, with claims to not only give their consumers better health, but also cure disease. Although I understand that brands will market their products in such a way to attain maximum profits, Bang has gone as far as to make crazy claims that their energy drink can cure Alzheimer’s disease (what?!) to make more in sales. Bang currently has 8 active lawsuits which isn’t surprising with the false claims they are making to their consumers. Keep reading for some of the claims made about Bang by the owner, Jack Owoc CEO VPX Sports.
“BANG CONTAINS AN ENHANCED FORM OF CREATINE”
Bang advertises that their energy drinks have what they refer to as “super creatine”. Bang’s claims that their “super creatine” produces a different effect on the human body contrary to normal creatine in competitor’s products. Bang states (in fine print, I’d imagine) that no formal studies are existent on health effects of “super creatine”. More tests have shown that the “super creatine” in Bang’s products is not creatine at all. There is NO creatine in Bang. So basically, no one really knows what this “super creatine” is and how it effects on the human body…
“BANG HAS A VALID PATENT ON SUPER CREATINE”
When a product contains an innovative new ingredient it can be patented. The process of obtaining a patent is lengthy; and rightfully so. Once you obtain a patent, you have exclusive rights to this "invention". You have to explain exactly how it works and a lot of due diligence is done. The US patent office has rejected and cancelled all of the patents submitted for Super Creatine. That bothers me. However, what bothers me even more is that Jack Owoc continues to mislead the public into thinking that they are drinking an ingredient that has gone through the patent process by advertising a patent ribbon and number. This is false advertising.
“BANG CAN REVERSE MENTAL RETARDATION” AND “ HELP CURE ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE”
You guys, I can’t make this up. Bang claims that they can not only reverse mental retardation, but they can also help cure Alzheimer's disease, although it has not yet been proven. So at this time, Bang can not reverse mental retardation or cure forms of dementia. However, Bang has been proven to bring about behavioral changes and even hallucinations when consumers are under the influence of the Bang.
“BANG CONTAINS A LARGE AMOUNT OF BCAAs and CoQ10”
Bang prides themselves in stating that they have a considerably high amount of BCAAs and CoQ10 in their products. Recent studies have shown that the amount of BCAA in a can is .15 grams in according to VPX test, which is a hundred times lower than stated by Bang. Therefore, BCAAs and CoQ10 present in bang are very minimal amounts which cannot cause a significant impact on the human body.
