Both companies claim their respective drinks do. BuzzFeed, an internet media company, put three popular energy drinks to the test. BuzzFeed tested Monster, Red Bull, and 5 Hour Energy to see which one performs the best. They tested their test subjects’ reaction time and working memory beforehand.

On average, after two hours, their reaction time and memory had increased 8%. After five hours, they reported not tired, but not wired, a slow buildup of energy. After five hours, memory and reaction time were still 5% above normal. The last drink they tested was Red Bull. Twenty minutes after consuming it, they expressed feeling jittery with a crash. Their scores had increased an average of 8% after two hours and after five hours, scoring 4% lower than normal. The testers felt lethargic and scattered brained (Sueper). Different drinks react differently to different people, though.
