Combining Caffeine with Taurine Has Antagonistic Effects

In 2013, worldwide sales of energy drinks exceeded $50 billion. The principal ingredients of these beverages are typically caffeine, taurine and usually high fructose corn syrup. A study from Colombia found that identically tasting beverages containing either caffeine (80 milligrams) taurine (1,000 milligrams), a combination of caffeine and taurine, or a commercial energy drink (Red Bull) had no effect on cardiorespiratory fitness, endurance, strength, power or cognitive ability. For best performance results, skip the taurine in your energy drink. (Journal International Society Sports Nutrition 11:44, 2014)
