Consumption of energy drinks is common among athletes; however, there is a lack of research on the efficacy of these beverages for short-duration, intense exercise. The purpose of this research was to investigate the acute effects of a low-calorie caffeine-taurine energy drink (AdvoCare Spark) on repeated sprint performance and anaerobic power in National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I football players. Twenty football players (age 19.7 ± 1.8 yr, height 184.9 ± 5.3 cm, weight 100.3… Expand
Energy Drink Doses Of Caffeine And Taurine Have A Null Or Negative Effect On Sprint Performance.
TLDR
Administration of caffeine and taurine at doses equivalent to commercial energy drinks did not improve repeat-sprint cycling performance and appeared to induce greater fatigue within selected sprints, particularly at the end of the trial. Expand
Caffeine-containing energy drink improves physical performance of elite rugby players during a simulated match.
TLDR
The use of an energy drink with a caffeine dose equivalent to 3 mg·kg(-1) considerably enhanced the movement patterns of rugby players during a simulated match. Expand
The Effects of a Commercial, Pre-exercise Energy Drink Supplement on Power, Muscular Endurance, and Repeated Sprint Speed
TLDR
While vertical jump, YMCA bench press, and repeated sprint speed improved from pre to post testing in both treatment groups, there were no differences between the energy drink and placebo beverages. Expand
A Low Dose Caffeine and Carbohydrate Supplement does not Improve Athletic Performance during Volleyball Competition
TLDR
The findings suggest that the amount of the supplement used in this study is not beneficial to VJ, AGL, and RSA in female volleyball players, and coaches and athletes should not only be aware of what ingredients are in the supplements they choose, but theamount of those ingredients as they may modify the efficacy of the Supplement to impact performance. Expand
Acute Effects of a Caffeine-Containing Supplement on Anaerobic Power and Subjective Measurements of Fatigue in Recreationally Active Men
TLDR
Results indicated that the caffeine-containing supplement improved perceived measures of fatigue but not power indices assessed through vertical jump or nonmotorized treadmill sprinting, particularly when repeated sprints are used. Expand
Effect of Energy Drink Consumption on Power and Velocity of Selected Sport Performance Activities
TLDR
It was concluded that while the dose of stimulants in the ES was adequate to improve performance of smaller muscle groups, it may not have been sufficient to affect the larger muscle groups of the lower legs which contribute to the CVJ. Expand
Acute Effects of an “Energy Drink” on Short-Term Maximal Performance, Reaction Times, Psychological and Physiological Parameters: Insights from a Randomized Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Counterbalanced Crossover Trial
TLDR
It is concluded that RB ingestion has a positive effect on physical performance and reaction times and is related to ergogenic responses in both psychological and physiological domains. Expand
Acute effects of caffeine-containing energy drinks on physical performance: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
ED ingestion improved performance in muscle strength and endurance, endurance exercise tests, jumping and sport-specific actions, however, the improvement in performance was associated with taurine dosage. Expand
The Effect of Acute Taurine Ingestion on Human Maximal Voluntary Muscle Contraction
TLDR
Taurine ingestion is detrimental to maximal voluntary muscle power and both maximal isokinetic and isometric peak torque in noncaffeine consumers, whereas taurine ingested in caffeine-deprived caffeine consumers improves maximal voluntary Muscle power but has no effect on other aspects of contractile performance. Expand
Performance outcomes and unwanted side effects associated with energy drinks.
TLDR
The existing data suggest that the caffeine dose given in studies of energy drinks is insufficient to enhance neuromuscular performance, and it is unclear if energy drinks are the optimal vehicle to deliver caffeine when high doses are needed to improve neuromUScular performance. Expand

Effects of red bull energy drink on repeated sprint performance in women athletes
TLDR
One serving of this energy drink provides no ergogenic benefit for women athletes engaging in sprint-based exercise, and Red Bull containing 1.3 mg/kg of caffeine and 1 g of taurine does not alter repeated sprint performance, RPE, or HR in women athletes versus placebo. Expand
Improved cycling time-trial performance after ingestion of a caffeine energy drink.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that consuming a commercially available energy drink before exercise can improve endurance performance and that this improvement might be in part the result of increased effort without a concomitant increase in perceived exertion. Expand
Examination of a pre-exercise, high energy supplement on exercise performance
TLDR
Results indicate a significant increase in reaction performance, with no effect on anaerobic power performance, and ingestion of this supplement significantly improves subjective feelings of focus and energy in male strength/power athletes. Expand
Effect of Caffeine on Sport-Specific Endurance Performance: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Caffeine ingestion can be an effective ergogenic aid for endurance athletes when taken before and/or during exercise in moderate quantities (3-6 mg·kg−1 body mass). Expand
Efficacy of Acute Caffeine Ingestion for Short-term High-Intensity Exercise Performance: A Systematic Review
TLDR
A review of the literature revealed 29 studies that measured alterations in short-term performance after caffeine ingestion that revealed significant improvements in team sports exercise and power-based sports with caffeine ingestion, yet these effects were more common in elite athletes who do not regularly ingest caffeine. Expand
Effects of Commercial Energy Drink Consumption on Athletic Performance and Body Composition
TLDR
There is conflicting evidence regarding the impact of energy drinks on weight loss, although some data suggest that combining energy drink use with exercise may enhance body fat reduction. Expand
Effect of Red Bull energy drink on repeated Wingate cycle performance and bench-press muscle endurance.
TLDR
Red Bull energy drink significantly increased upper body muscle endurance but had no effect on anaerobic peak or average power during repeated Wingate cycling tests in young healthy adults. Expand
Caffeine and Exercise
TLDR
The limited information available suggests that caffeine non-users and users respond similarly and that withdrawal from caffeine may not be important, and caffeine may act synergistically with other drugs including ephedrine and anti-inflammatory agents. Expand
Effect of caffeinated coffee on running speed, respiratory factors, blood lactate and perceived exertion during 1500-m treadmill running.
TLDR
The study concluded that under these laboratory conditions, the ingestion of caffeinated coffee could enhance the performance of sustained high-intensity exercise. Expand
The effect of a taurine-containing drink on performance in 10 endurance-athletes
TLDR
The results of this study show a positive effect of a taurine-containing drink on hormonal responses which leads to a higher performance. Expand
