Amp Energy Drink Nutritional Facts
Amp Energy Drink offers a quick energy boost but not much else.

Amp Energy Drink is a popular energy drink in the United States. This drink has enjoyed success because of its connection with Mountain Dew, a high-caffeine soft drink available throughout the country. It is available in convenience stores and in some supermarkets. Like similar beverages, Amp Energy Drink offers a quick energy boost but provides little nutritional value. For this reason, this beverage should be enjoyed sparingly.

Amp Energy Drink comes in several styles. The original Amp Energy is a citrus-flavored beverage that contains taurine, ginseng, guarana and B vitamins. Amp Energy Relaunch packs an orange flavor with the vitamins and caffeine of the original. For those who do not like citrus beverages, there is Amp Energy Overdrive, a cherry-flavored drink with yerba mate. Elevate, designed for enhanced mental focus, has a berry taste and contains L-Theanine.

Other choices include Amp Energy with Green Tea, lemon-flavored Lightning and Amp Traction, which has a grape flavor and contains maltodextrin and D-ribose. Amp Energy Sugar Free Lightning, a sugar-free option, is also available. Those who want a more natural energy drink can choose Amp Orange or Berry, which are 100-percent juice formulas. For a portable energy boost, consumers can choose Amp Energy Gum, which is sugar free and comes in citrus flavor.
