Caffeine and Taurine mix may have dangerous cardiac issue

Post by hematite »

Hi Guys,

During my Exercise Physiology Class, my prof meantioned about the danger of drinking red-bull.

That spur me to find out more...good read..

"The Australian researchers said that two of the drink's ingredients - caffeine and the amino acid taurine - may have dangerous consequences for the heart when taken together."

But if you read it carefully, I think the major risk is with the Sugar Free version for ALL people and as for the normal version, unhealthy people with a predisposition to cardiovascular and hypertension seem to be the ones within the risk group.

As always, take everything in moderation and if you have hypertension or cardiac issues, avoid them.

i heard that you shouldn't consume more than 2 cans per day, and i think its effects worsen with alcohol consumption, so go easy on the jagerbombs :partyman:

personal opinion: no one needs a redbull.

Especially to Ryan, bro, u certainly don't need a redbull. It is very easy to get addicted to Redbull. Once u are addicted, it is akin to my addiction to smoking.

I used to take the sugar loaded gold color red bull. It worked for me, but aiya, I see the ingredients, a bit off also, so I stopped. Now when I need to psych myself up I go wash my face then slap myself a few times and jump up and down a few times. Also works, and cheaper. Red Bull is quite ex...

But Red Bull very good for trench digging times...Ryan chiu can save for next time :mrgreen:

hm really ah? i take it cos sometimes my schedule got stupid...like today i was so tiredaft coming home from sch i took a nap...woke up just before 9 and had to rush down....

it seems to have quite an effect for me...like a sudden increase in energy levels :?

so u think i shouldn't take anything at all? sometimes i try to avoid la..but mentally I want every advantage I have...especially if I'm aiming to increase weight for squat/DL...like i never drink i have this mentality tt I may not be able to perform to my max for tt day :?

how about milo or 100 plus in place of tt?

Dont depend on outside elements to psyche yourself up. Or at least attempt to.

Shit talking to yourself (but not so loud that EVERYBODY can hear) may just be enough.

Yes, sugar gives u a boost. But, are u really gonna depend on it everytime?

Why eat so much meat, ask a lot about high fat diet and stuffs, and then take redbull?

U should believe that it is u who are strong. Not the Redbull that makes u strong.

I take the Silver and Dark Blue Red Bull every Monday before training in the evening. It helps a fair bit since,

1) It is the only time of the week I take Red Bull - No addiction issues
2) The kick is enough to jolt some fatigue away, especially since I've also trained in the morning and if the day was particularly hectic

agree with gala...

Actually, taking a bath or drink a supercold drink will do good. I usually go under shower to boost myself up.

In my opinion, the sudden drop of body temperature will forcefully activate your skeletal muscles to start vibration to generate heat to maintain homeostatis. Which in return will increase blood circulation. In addition taking an hot drink will also perk you up.

For supplements, i have cut down all my supplements except multivits and omega 3-6-9. Why?...i want to do mental conditioning....it is sucks big time...!

buy pure caffeine powder mix it with your BCAA and Beta Alanine.

I think it'll give an awesome buzz.

My guess would be by picking it up and either swinging, snatching, cleaning and/or jerking it. Am I right herman? :)
