  • Limit your consumption of Red Bull Energy Drink to 500 mL, or two cans per day.
  • Don't mix energy drinks with alcohol.
  • Rehydrate your system with water after intense physical activity or exercise.
  • If you have an adverse reaction to energy drinks, report it to a health-care organization.
