    Taurine... Is It Really So Good For You?

    The energy drink manufacturers seem to swear by taurine, in action, if not in words: it's in almost every energy drink out there.  I think it's supposed to give your brain a boost, but all it does is give me an instant headache.  Naturally, I'm quite suspicious of them...

    I never buy them for myself.

    They don't have effect on me. My energy is all based on my state of mind not on some drinks.

    All Of Them Are Disgusting

    I've tried so many different Monster and Amp drinks and there so nasty, and when I take more than one sip I feel like someone just coated my tongue with gritty slime there's so much sugar in it.

    I rarely drink them ever

    since I consumed 56 ounces my first time. I got sick and woke up with a terrible headache. Most of them don't taste right. If I do drink one, it's a cherry NOZ. I fail to believe that some people can drink ten of them in a couple hours. Wouldn't the body react horribly to that?

    I Used To Hate Energy Drinks

    An energy drink is a type of beverage containing stimulant drugs, chiefly caffeine, which is marketed as providing mental and physical stimulation. They may or may not be carbonated, and generally contain large amounts of caffeine and other stimulants, and many also contain sugar...

    Energy Drinks

    I've tried energy drinks a few years ago.  I just had a sip of it and from the sip, I felt on the go, as if I had snorted coke.  Imagine if I would have drank the whole thing?  This is the reason I cannot. I just found out if you have high blood pressure or heart disease...

    Yuck.

    I dont like Energy drinks.  In NZ the main ones are V or Red Bull - I prefer V if I HAD to make a choice.  The taste is pretty vile - Im not sure what its suppose to taste like but i find the sensation of drinking something that doesnt taste like anything familiar...

    Adrenals

    Once upon a time, I stressed my adrenals.  Excess ingredients in most energy drinks will do this.  I am trying my best to not drink these ever again.

    I Don't Want To Drink Them

    I really don't like energy drinks... At school every time my best friend drank an energy drink I said she shouldn't and I always took it away from her. Then we would end up play fighting with her trying to get it back off me. I always told everyone not to drink them because they...

    Taste

    I actually don't like the taste. And how they look, they don't look very appetising. And look like coke that's been dyed orange. Or something like that. I'm very picky when it comes to how my food looks. If it don't look nice, in my world it won't be nice!!

    They're not even that healthy

    for you. There's loads of sugar, caffeine, and they don't really help with hydration.

    Just Not Natural

    They're just another one of those things on my list of "I don't understand you, so I'm not going to consume you". My body does't need any crazy additives to keep me awake. I did used to drink the purple Rockstar Juiced in college, but only because I love all things purple. If I'm...

    Ok, I'll admit, there was a period that I pretty much lived on Jolt cola....but that was a long time ago. My big issue with energy drinks is the insane amount of sugar in most of 'em.  Sure you're gonna get an energy burst if you put that much sugar into your body!  And then...
