What does it have to do with digestion!?

Taurine is a good enough stimulant and in high doses it can do harm just as with anything else!. However, there is not enough of it in energy drinks or anything else to do any harm even if you drink them in high doses!. Long before that would happen you would have had too many problems with the amounts of sugar and caffeine consumed!.

Taurine is an organic acid that is the building blocks for ALL amino acids!. It is found on our heart, nervous system, skeletal muscles, white blood cells and our bile where it is needed to process and digest fats and oils including fat soluable nutrients!.

Limit your enrgy drink and caffeine intake!. The maximum safe amount of caffeine we can consume in a day is 300mg and energy drinks have 80mg per serving!. The makers also recommend having only 1 to 2 a day and the large cans are 2!.
