Have you too often wondered if a 250 ml can of Red Bull does fuel up the body with a high dose of energy which can keep you going all day and all night?
To answer this question lets find what Red Bull contains and what it boasts of.
The image shows it contains Taurine, an amino sulfonic acid, which builds protein and gives energy. The other key ingredient is caffeine, a substance which activates the central nervous system.
Now, let’s check the quantity.
Caffeine (0.03%) = 75 mg
Taurine (0.4%) = 1000 mg (approx)
Here comes the interesting part.
The same amount of Caffeine + Taurine can be consumed by eating two boiled eggs (900 mg of Taurine) and a cup of coffee (90 mg of caffeine).
The next time when you are low on energy and do not have INR 100 to shell out on a can of Red Bull, just get a couple of boiled eggs and cup of coffee. You will be good to go.
