How Much Caffeine Is in Spark?

As we said, one pouch and serving of Spark contains 120 mg of caffeine. Considering a single portion is meant to be mixed into only 8 ounces of water, that shoots Spark above the average caffeine content for an 8-ounce can. Spark also has more caffeine than a standard brewed cup of coffee, which often comes in at around 100 mg.

Spark truly shines when considering its other health benefits beyond its caffeine content. It’s said to increase your overall focus and attention span, boost your metabolism, and can even relieve post-workout muscle pains.

Final Thoughts

With only 15 calories, 120 mg of caffeine, and no added sugar, Spark certainly carves a name for itself in the energy drink market. As with any drink high in caffeine, you must carefully consider your daily caffeine intake and potential side effects. While caffeine stimulates your central nervous system and makes you feel more alert and active, too much caffeine can cause anxiety, restlessness, and even heart problems.

The FDA suggests that you shouldn’t consume more than 400 mg of caffeine a day to avoid some of the nastier side effects common with caffeine consumption. Considering Spark contains 120 mg of caffeine in a single serving, if you take more than one serving daily, you run the risk of already being over a healthy daily limit. Caffeine adds up quickly.
