Active Ingredients:
Crunk Energy drink starts off with a reasonable 100mg of caffeine, reinforced with Inositol, Green Tea Leaf, Damiana (reputed to help with energy, emphysema, low estrogen, frigidity, hot flashes, impotency, infertility, menopause, Parkinson's disease, PMS, inflammation of prostate, Lou Gehrig's disease, and more dealing with reproductive organs in both males and females.) 1, L-Carnitine, Licorice (not sure if this is supposed to have any other medicinal/herbal value other than as an expectorant, and to stop anal leakage), Guarana, L-Tyrosine, Horny Goat Weed (a.k.a. Barrenwort, Bishop's Hat, Fairy Wings, or Yin Yang Huo. Essentially notable for having aphrodisiac qualities), N Acetyl L-Cysteine, Ginko Biloba, Panax Ginseng, Grape Seed Extract, Skull Cap (after some research, I found too many species of plant going by this name to determine which is used in Crunk, and what purpose it serves), White Willow (used to remedy aches and fevers), Ashwaganda (provide strength and help the body resist disease), Milk Thistle (promotes liver health). On top of all that, we've still got vitamins to cover (amount/USRDA): Vitamin C 30mg/50%, E 7.5iu/25%, B1 375mcg/25%, B2 1.7mg/100%, B3 20mg/100%, B6 2mg/100%, B12 6mcg/100%, B5 10mg/100%, Calcium 50mg/5%, Magnesium 12mg/4%, Selenium 5mcg/5%.
