1H One-dimensional (1D) spectroscopic data from a single voxel in the bi-occipital lobe were acquired from a group of Red Bull drinkers (n=4) and another control group(n=5). Each subject was monitored for more than 45 minutes with a 1D spectrum acquired every 5 minutes on a 1.5 T Achieva XR MR scanner (Phillips, The Netherlands). Data was processed and analyzed using LcModel. Data revealed a decrease in PCr, Ins, and MM20, and an increase in GSH and Glx as a result of drinking Red Bull.
