The holiday season is a busy time, leaving many in need of a little extra energy to get through this busy month. For years, millions of Americans turn to energy drinks for a caffeine boost, which have been proven to be safe for consumption time and time again.

In fact, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has studied energy drinks and their ingredients for decades and found no safety issues with the drinks or ingredients. In 2015, EFSA concluded that it is unlikely that energy drink ingredients such as taurine interact adversely with, or enhance the effects of, caffeine.

The truth is that many energy drinks contain significantly less caffeine than a similarly-sized coffeehouse coffee. And most mainstream energy drinks voluntarily list the total amount of caffeine from all sources right on the label so that consumers can have the information they need right up front.
