I was driving to work the other day, enjoying my obligatory glass of morning . This morning it was a can of Red Bull, I didn’t have time to stop at Starbucks, and I noticed that the primary ingredient in Red Bull is Taurine. How exactly does Red Bull work, and does it really give you wings? Does this make you more alert?
Well, upon inspecting the components and doing some research, which was not hard working as a bulk vitamin distributor, I found that the Red Bull wings mention may be geared to mental wellbeing than to actual body energy. At least this may be the case with Taurine. As it happens, Taurine is an amino acid that is used in our body for a number of activities. A couple of which are to act as a neural regulator, and also to protect heart function. Substantial amounts of Taurine can also be found in our eyes and stomach bile. There is no doubt that Taurine is beneficial, but I couldn’t find any data that indicated it would give you an energy boost.
After searching and searching, I realized that the”wings” reference could be geared more toward your mental condition. As I suggested, Taurine acts as a neural regulator. In actuality, it’s one of these chemicals in our brain that’s responsible for a calm positive disposition. Maybe the wings effect is referring to how the Taurine in Red Bull will make you calm and clear-headed. There has been data to demonstrate that Taurine is effective when dealing with anxiety. Another ingredient that would indicate that the”wings” tag line may refer more to your mental condition is the ingredient Inositol. This is another compound that’s been shown to have a positive, calming, effect on your mood. In looking at the ingredients, Caffeine certainly jumps out as a major stimulant. Other than that, sugar is always effective at giving a good short-term energy boost. These are probably the main ingredients that will make you more”vitalized.”
So does Red Bull give you “Wings?” Well, the Taurine and Inositol in it will surely make you feel good. It’s caffeine, so there should be a small energy boost, and the other chemicals listed can assist with your metabolism. Overall, it needs to have a positive impact on your body, and at least make you feel a little calmer and more energized. In terms of wings, well, what would we do together if we had them anyhow?
