Dear Anonymous
Taurine is an amino acid that is found in protein foods like meat, so you will be ingesting some from your normal diet. It is usually the caffeine content of such energy drinks that causes "the buzz" because caffeine is a stimulant. If your energy drink does not contain any caffeine then it should not be particularly harmful.
