Prime Hydration Drink

If you don’t know who KSI and Logan Paul are your kids will definitely know! They’re massive influencers with KSI having 24.1 million subscribers on his main channel and Logan Paul having 23.6 million.

The duo used to be enemies who fought each other in the ring, twice. You can blame them for starting the annoying influencer boxing craze.

These huge YouTubers are now friends and business partners, launching the most successful influencer-owned brand in the world: Prime.

With a Super Bowl ad that premiered this year, a partnership with the UFC, and becoming the official sports drink of the L.A. Dodgers and Arsenal, Prime sales are skyrocketing.

In its first year, Prime made $250 million in retail sales! In fact, all their drinks are currently sold out on their website, but may be available on Amazon.

Is Prime Safe for Kids?

Prime has two lines of drinks. One is Prime Hydration which comes in five flavors like tropical punch and lemon-lime. It contains a small percentage of coconut water and has added vitamins and minerals like Potassium and Vitamin B12 as well as electrolytes to keep you hydrated.

Prime Hydration is as safe for kids to drink as Gatorade is, meaning it’s not the healthiest thing in the world, but it won’t harm your child any more than other sports drinks and processed fruit juices. It has 0 sugar in it but has some artificial sweeteners.

Prime Energy also comes in 5 flavors and electrolytes, but the major difference is that it’s loaded with caffeine, packing 200mg in every can! That’s equivalent to 4 cups of regular coffee.

Prime Energy is NOT safe for kids and is only recommended for people who are 18 years or older.

A school in Newport, Wales issued a warning to parents about Prime Energy after a child suffered from a cardiac episode and had to have their stomach pumped after drinking Prime Energy. It’s not clear how many cans he drank, but kids should not be drinking caffeine.
