SummaryTo determine the effect of a taurine-enriched drink “Red Bull” on performance, 10 endurance-athletes performed three trials. After 60 min. cycling at approximately 70% VO2 max, the subjects pedalled to exhaustion on a cycle ergometer. During each exercise, the subjects received 500 ml of a test-drink after 30 min. submaximal cycling: “Red Bull” without taurine, without glucuronolacton (U1), “Red Bull” without taurine, without glucuronolacton, without caffeine (U2) and “Red Bull” original… Expand
The effect of acute taurine ingestion on 4-km time trial performance in trained cyclists
TLDR
It is suggested that a pre-exercise dose of 1000 mg TAU offers no performance advantage during 4-km TT nor does it alter the blood buffering responses in trained cyclists. 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
The effect of acute taurine ingestion on endurance performance and metabolism in well-trained cyclists.
TLDR
The acute ingestion of 1.66 g of T before exercise did not enhance TT performance but did result in a small but significant increase in fat oxidation during submaximal cycling in endurance-trained cyclists. 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
THE EFFECT OF ENERGY DRINK INGESTION ON 5-KM RUNNING PERFORMANCE IN RECREATIONAL ENDURANCE RUNNERS
TLDR
It is demonstrated that consuming a commercially available ED before exercise can improve endurance performance and may have application for altering pre-exercise nutritional strategies in athletes and recreational runners. Expand
Effect of various carbohydrate-electrolyte fluids on cycling performance and maximal voluntary contraction.
TLDR
Performance increases during CE+ may have been influenced by lower RPE and greater preservation of leg strength during exercise in part as a result of the hypothesized effects of CE+ on the central nervous system and skeletal muscle. Expand
Acute Ingestion of Sugar-free Red Bull Energy Drink has no Effect on Upper Body Strength and Muscular Endurance in Resistance Trained Men.
TLDR
The findings suggest that SF-RB has no effect on upper body 1RM strength or VL in resistance trained men. Expand
Effect of an Energy Drink on Physical and Cognitive Performance in Trained Cyclists
Background: Caffeine and carbohydrates are used by consumers to increase exercise and certain aspects of cognitive performance. This study investigated the effectiveness of an energy drink (ED)Expand
Acute physiological effects of taurine content of an energy drink in physically active subjects
TLDR
The main results of this study point out that taurine administration contained in the energy drink did not influence in the levels of the investigated variables, and it can conclude that the 2g dose used did not improve performance. 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

Effects of caffeine ingestion on metabolism and exercise performance.
TLDR
The enhanced endurance performance observed in the C Trial was likely the combined effects of caffeine on lipolysis and its positive influence on nerve impulse transmission. Expand
Effects of 4 h preexercise carbohydrate feedings on cycling performance.
TLDR
It is indicated that, despite elevated insulin at the start of and during exercise, consumption of 312 g of carbohydrate 4 h before moderately intense prolonged exercise can improve performance, perhaps via an enhancement of carbohydrate oxidation. Expand
Taurine and Electrical Activity of the Heart
TLDR
Findings indicate that taurine is able to regulate the excitability of the myocardium, possibly by modifying membrane permeability to potassium. Expand
Central cardiovascular effects of taurine: comparison with homotaurine and muscimol.
TLDR
It is indicated that glycine-type receptors may be involved in the taurine effects rather than gamma-aminobutyric acid type receptors, however, these results do not exclude the involvement of taurin- type receptors for which the specific antagonists is not yet available. Expand
Therapeutic effect of taurine in congestive heart failure: A double‐blind crossover trial
TLDR
The results indicate that addition of taurine to conventional therapy is safe and effective for the treatment of patients with congestive heart failure. Expand
Effect of taurine on the cyclic AMP and GMP levels in the rat heart during stress
TLDR
Taurine had no effect on the cyclic nucleotide level in the heart of intact rats but sharply reduced the increase in cyclic AMP and cyclic GMP levels taking place during stress, suggesting that taurine is a nonspecific regulator of the sensitivity of the myocardial cells to biologically active substances. Expand
Centrally induced vasodepressor and sympathetic nerve responses to taurine.
TLDR
The results suggest that taurine causes the central nervous system to lower the blood pressure by decreasing the sympathetic nerve outflow. Expand
Taurine and the adenosine cyclic monophosphate levels in the heart
TLDR
The effect of taurine on adenylate cyclase activity diminishes under the action of phentolamine and obsidan and is practically not manifested in the simultaneous presence of both adrenoblocking agents. Expand
Effect of taurine on a muscle intracellular membrane.
TLDR
Taurine slowed the rate of loss of calcium transport and ATPase activities of sarcoplasmic reticulum caused by phospholipase C, and it is suggested that taurine may function as a membrane stabilizer. Expand
A modulating role of taurine on release of acetylcholine and norepinephrine from neuronal tissues.
TLDR
The results suggest that taurine may act as a modulator of neuronal activity, possibly by stabilizing excitable membrane and by suppressing the release of neurotansmitter at synapses. Expand
