Cobra Energy Drink Ingredients and Nutritional Contents


Every time I drink Cobra, I feel the same effect as Sting Energy Drink! But the first is sweeter in term of taste.

Don’t drink too much of it. This warning is written on bottle, “Warning: Excessive intake of caffeine may cause sleeplessness palpitations and similar side effects.”


Cobra Energy Drink has the following nutritive value:
-calories 195
-Total Fat 39
-sodium 49 mg
-total carbohydrates

-Vitamin B1 1.35mg
-Vitamin B6 1.35mg

What I hate about softdrinks manufacturers is they way they imprint the ingredient list. It is always written on crown. Would you mind reading the crown below? You need a good magnifying glass to read it. Or better buy a more expensive canned version just to know its ingredients.

Most common soft drinks ingredients are listed here.

update: April 24, 2011

The manufacturer released the Cobra Green, the Citrus Blast. Ripe citrus color is orange. I wonder why they picked green. Does it make sense?

The tastes is a tongue biting sweet citrus. Though the only flavors I found related are nature identical flavors and citric acid. No natural citrus flavor. Auntie reported, most fanatic prefer this green version.

I spent time reading small written ingredients on corrugated part of crown. Here they are:

Carbonated water
Citric Acid
Nature Identical Flavors
Sodium Citrate
Sodium Benzoate
Ginseng powder
Niacinamide, Vitamin B3
Thiamine HCl, Vitamin B1
Pyridoxine HCl, Vitamin B6
Cyanocobalamin, Vitamin B12
Blue Color – Blue color in a green beverage?

  • NEVER DRINK COBRA AT ALL! My cousin use to take this 2times a day. Since he is driving in UBER. After several months he have a diabetic. He’s sugar has gone up to 394 from 102 normal.. Now he is on a treatment.


  • Can anyone tell me where I can buy the Cobra or Sting Energy Drink? This is my email address.
    Thanks in advance.

  • I tried drinking different brands/types of energy drink like Cobra, Sting, Lipovitan, Red Bull, Monster etc. etc. and didn’t really helped me I didn’t feel energized, I waited for few minutes hoping that it would take effect after waiting but it makes me feel more sleepy or something. Is there a possible reason why?

    • You probably have higher dosage of caffeine

  • I’ve tried cobra energy drink one’s and it makes me want to cobra my boyfriend lol i mean it makes me feel malibog. It’s wierd and funny i thought i just get a full energy.

    • ng boost lng energy mu cguro.kung saan mu hilig duon ka dalhin ng cobra.hehe

  • cobra makes me stronger than to other energy drinks…….. Try mo Pag meron ka nito wala kang talo.


    • CAN U PROVE IT……?????

  • friends try has no side effects like colas or other energy drink.

  • Fuvk you tondo boy.. dalhin mo yan pagiging tondo boy mo sa CAVITE pra sa talahiban ka pulutin

  • Hi there,
    I am still confused about the artificial color please let me know the source (synthesizer) of the drink.


  • Hi bro nice post very informative. May also ask if you can make a review about Pocari Sweet, Gatorade, etc… and maybe you can add the pros and cons of taking this energy drinks.

    More power!

    • Sure! I gonna try.


  • Thank you for this tips I quit drinking Cobra now.
    🙂 The beverage… Hmm….

  • be careful on this product guys coz they use MAGIC SUGAR on this!

  • Woah… Just when I thought that one bottle is enough!

  • Guys i dont palpitate pag cobra pero it keeps me awake kaso saglit lang. mga 2-3 hours lang. Boooo. pero masarap. nakaka-adik! mas malakas tama ng yellow cobra kesa dun sa bago na green.

  • pampakati ang cobra ayan ang effect nyan

    tang inang cobra yan

  • because cobra has a lot of prservatives and chemicals that force the body to operate… all are chemicals and snthetic flavors… we should be smarter on what we take… our body and strength is all what we have to keep going in life.. thanks to this site! more power!

    • Ahh! you have a good point – our body will exert effort to expel out those preservatives. It might be the real reason why we feel more energetic!

  • None of the ingredients appear to be proteins. Yet the ingredient declaration says 3 grams of proteins.

  • Guys, please stop drinking cobra! I’ve tried it myself and always get heart problems (palpitations, etc.)

    For energy I would recommend drinking organic apple cider vinegar. You can find it in SM – the brand is called BRAGGS. What you do is get a TBSP of apple cider vinegar and pour it into a glass of water.

    Try it for a few days and see how you feel.

    Another source for energy is cold showers, bananas, fresh coconut water (Lipa brand), and vitamin b12.

    Hope it helps.

  • hi good day every one. .

    I drink cobra energy 5x a day. .im very addicted in this product. .

  • a good source of taurine and caffeine though the amounts they listed are probably not accurate.. I take 4 to 7 bottles of this everyday.. Its definitely addictive, i never gain weight since i do muay thai, carbos wont settle in my body as fat.. The most obvious effect of this drink on me is on my temper it makes me insane on even the littlest sh!t, once even made me kick some dude in the streets in the face one night , he was out unconcious, and i just ran away.. Something i did not to be proud of.. But im in control of the temper thing in cobra now.. Still taking my average amounts

    • @kuku – I should take cobra when someone is picking a fight. I will kick his ass! haha! just joking!

      • Pu—-na nyo dalawa! subok subukan nyo gawin yan s tondo tigok kayo!! WLA yang muay thai mo sa SUMPAK!!

        • hahahaahahhahhahahahahhahahhahahahaha

        • Yabang mo tondo boy, tingnan ko lang ang tapang ng mga taga-Tondo at mga alagad mong duwag sa Basilan at Mexico.

  • Hi everyone. Im wondring if you could extend any help to my study. Currently working on a study/stroy about side effects of energy drinks. I hope you could help me. Please email me at

    Kind regards,

    • @mark – my friend told me that she is suffering from palpitation every time she drink cobra. Her doctor told her to stop drinking it and other energy drinks and colas.

  • i drink 3 to 8 cobra energy drinks a day, and now, i dont even drink water anymore, if cobra is not available i always go for softdrinks or juices, and as a result, i gained more than 40 pounds.

    • @jazzy – Those contain lot of carbohydrates that are stored as excess fat. Gaining weight is really easier than losing it.

    • me too ..

  • cobra makes me have to go poo alot,does it happen to u,no im not jokeing,but its good

    • Drinking 2 cobra makes me sleepless until 3 am past midnight. A very uncomfortable situation

  • Water, sugar, citric acid and flavoring, sodium citrate, taurine, caffeine, sodium benzoate, tartrazine, inositol, ginseng powder, niacinamide(vit b3), sunset yellow, thiamine HCL(Vit B1), Pyridoxine HCL(vit b6), cyanocobalamin (Vit b12)

    I drink it (strictly) once a day only, I decided to quit softdrinks(because of the bone effects thing from acids and phosphoric acid) and I am thinking if I should also quit cobra, didn’t knew the ingredients are listed on the crown, thanks to this post I found it(luckily I still have good eyesight).

    I think I’ll still google out if I really should :
