Taurine in energy drinks

Taurine in Energy Drinks

A Japanese company released the first energy drink in 1962. The main ingredient is that drink is taurine and is still commonly used in energy drinks today. The first «energy drink» that came to the United States was actually a cola called Jolt Cola to which they added a whole lot more caffeine and sugar. It was introduced in the 1980s and quickly became the drink of college campuses.
First of all, let’s look at what most of these energy drinks are usually made of. Most of them are simply carbonated water loaded with gut-fattening high fructose corn syrup, caffeine, the amino acid taurine, and a few random B-vitamins thrown in for show to trick you into thinking there’s something healthy about these concoctions.
The main two ingredients of energy drinks are caffeine and taurine. These are the key elements that are supposed to «energize» our brain and body according to the plan of energy drinks creators. But practice shows different. The French scientists studied the composition and effects of energy drinks and came to the conclusion that the main ingredients of tonics do not go together and cause ambiguous body reactions.
Red Bull’s infamous ingredient is not from a bull’s semen or urine as reputed by urban legend, but rather, an amino acid, taurine, that was first discovered in bulls. This product is also banned in Denmark. Red Bull may be the best selling energy drink in the United States, but it isn’t so popular in other countries. It contains as much caffeine as two cans of Coke or Pepsi.
Another popular ingredient in energy drinks is taurine, which is actually something that we naturally get from foods that contain vitamin B6. We normally get more than enough taurine in out diet and the extra amount that we get from these energy drinks, depending on how much we consume, can become toxic in our systems.
The Energy drinks contain all kinds of vitamins, caffeine, and many other components that imitate the feeling of freshness and «refill» a person with vital energy to help in overcoming fatigue. Such components are Taurine or Carnitin. Those chemicals improve the metabolism and the concentration and cause significant withdrawal of tiredness symptoms.
Others point out that their only major concern is that people recognize the potential of these drinks and make use of them in moderation – in fact, many of the manufacturers of these drinks indicate on their packaging that they are not intended as fluid replacements and that there is a maximum advisable consumption per day.
Don’t be fooled by the small packaging bottle. 5-hour energy contains a huge 1870mg blend of delicious energy products such as taurine, citicoline, citicoline, tyrosine, phenylalanine, malic acid, glucuronolactone, and of course, caffeine. As well, 5-hour energy provides unparallel convenience, due to its small, 5 ounce bottle. A college student can carry it around with simple ease, and take shots whenever necessary.
