How much sugar is in XS drink?
There is less than 1/2 calorie (2 kilojoules) of sugar in XS Energy Drink.
The 8 calories in XS are from amino acids and are protein calories that
are used in your body’s natural metabolic process. Most 250 energy drinks in the market today have over 100 calories from
27-30 grams of sugar,(approximately 7 teaspoons of sugar) which is a
simple carbohydrate. Most 375 mL non-diet soft drinks have 170 calories
from 40 grams of sugar( approximately 10 teaspoons of sugar). Most 160
mL juice drinks have 80 calories from 20 grams of sugar (approximately
5 teaspoons of sugar). How does XS taste so good without sugar, carbs and so few calories? Aren’t there fruit juices
in the drink?
XS Energy drinks use a proprietary blend of Sucralose, Acesulfame Potassium (Ace K) and fruit flavours
to give the drinks their great flavour without sugar or empty calories. In fact the 8 calories in the drink
come from the 2 grams of amino acids, which are protein calories. THE SWEETENERS:
is non-caloric, non-cariogenic (does not promote tooth decay), non-
nutritive sweetener that delivers powerful, great-tasting sweetness (approximately 200 times as sweet
as sucrose). Preferred because its sweet taste is perceived quickly, does not linger, and does not persist
longer than the taste of the product. It provides excellent sugar-like taste. For more information visit

is a revolutionary no calorie sweetener that is made from sugar, so it tastes like sugar. It has
an outstanding safety profile. Sucralose has now been approved by the regulatory agencies of more
than 50 countries, including the United States (1998), Canada (1991), Australia and New Zealand.
Today, millions of people around the world enjoy more than 400 foods and beverages sweetened with sucralose.
XS Energy Drink contains fruit flavours but not fruit juice. The Australian / New Zealand Food Standards
Code does not permit the use of fruit juice in these types of products.
Is there caffeine in XS Energy Drinks?
Yes, there are 80 milligrams of caffeine in a can of XS Energy drink. This is about the same amount of caffeine as in a normal cup of coffee and many soft drinks. If you are caffeine-sensitive, none of these
caffeine-containing drinks may be for you.
Doesn't caffeine make you jittery?
Everyone's body reacts differently to different foods. In most cases, it is not caffeine that makes people
"jittery". It is usually the "sugar high" that makes people "jittery". When they "crash" after a sugar high, some people think the solution is another "sugar high" that starts another up-down-up-down cycle that
can be very unhealthy both short term and long term.
Why is caffeine in the drinks?
The drinks are ENERGY drinks formulated to deliver energy without loads of calories from sugar. Caffeine is a great way to boost energy and enhance performance and give you a boost without the
Are there any other benefits to caffeine?

Isn't caffeine on the "Banned Substances" list used by the Olympics and NCAA college
Caffeine is found in many common and everyday foods. It is an alkaloid with a stimulant action. Caffeine
is not classified as a prohibited stimulant under the World Anti-Doping Code 2004 Prohibited List unless
otherwise specified in particular sports. Refer to the Australian Sports Drug Agency at
r more information. Athletes at high levels should always know the restricted and banned substances related to their sport
and to the International sports world, and should always make the decision themselves should they
choose to take a product. The final decision is always in the hands of the athlete.
What are Adaptogenic Herbs?
Adaptogenic herbs help to normalize body system functions thus enhancing human performance. Adaptogenic herbs aid the body in managing stress. When your body stresses it pumps cortisol. Cortisol
in the blood stream sends a message to your body that you need foods high in fat and sugar, also
known as ‘comfort foods.’ Studies show that adaptogenic herbs suppress the production of cortisol and
decrease the cravings some people have for comfort foods. Also, athletes will find that the speed of their
recovery times increases after workouts using adaptogenic herbs, such as the blend found in XS Energy
Drinks. The blend of herbs in XS Energy Drinks is very similar to the blend used by Russian Olympic
Athletes to overcome stress from their workouts and radically reduce recovery times
What herbs are in XS Energy Drinks?
XS Energy Drink contains the adaptogenic herbs Elutherococcus senticosus, Panax ginseng, Panax
quinquefolium, Schisandra, Astragalus and Reishi
Why are B Vitamins used?
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5), Vitamin B6 and Vitamin B12 all belong to a
group of vitamins known collectively as B Vitamins. These vitamins are essential for the breakdown of
carbohydrates in the body to provide energy. They are also essential for the breakdown of fats and
proteins, which aids the normal functioning of the nervous system.
Is it possible to overdose on B Vitamins?
No. B Vitamins are part of the group called “ water soluble vitamins. Excessive amounts of “ water
soluble” vitamins are merely excreted through the urine.
What is Taurine
Taurine is an amino acid that helps maintain biochemical interactions involved in muscle contraction.
Why are colouring dyes used in the drink?
This is an important question, because there has been a lot of press about some chemicals that are
dangerous and had been used in the past to add colour to food. None of those dangerous chemicals are used in XS. It is important not to confuse safe, everyday dyes used in countless food products with
entirely different products that were also used to color food products. This is analogous to believing that
all wall paints should be avoided because some wall paints in the past contained the dangerous
XS uses two very popular and frequently used food colorings. The two food colours, both of which are
permitted under the Australia/ New Zealand Food Standards Code, are Tartrazine (2mg or 8 parts per million) in the Citrus and Allura Red #40 (2.5mg or 10 parts per million) in the Cranberry. They are
used to supplement the natural colours of the drinks. Extensive scientific studies have never discovered
any negative side-effects from these dyes at these extremely low amounts. The reason XS contains
these dyes is the same reason it contains flavorings. It's great to take vitamins and adaptogenic herbs
for your body and XS Energy has it in a form that appeals to most people in regards to taste,
All this being said, XS Energy Drink is not for everyone. If people are hyper-sensitive to dyes or caffeine
or flavourings or aluminum cans or artificial sweeteners or carbonation or whatever else XS may contain
that they don't like, they should use some of the other great drinks that Amway offers, such as Active8,
