The effects of energy drinks on concentration and vigilance have been widely studied. However, the acute effects of such drinks on physical performance are unclear. In order to clarify the effects of energy drinks on performance, this systematic review and meta-analysis compiled 34 studies.


Results showed that energy drinks improve several aspects of physical performance.

Muscle strength and endurance were notably improved (p < 0.001), as endurance exercise tests (p < 0.001), jumping (p = 0.01) and sport-specific action (p < 0.001). However, energy drink may have no significant effect on sprint (p = 0.06).

Meta-regression analyzes highlighted a significant association between taurine dosage and performance (p = 0.04), but not between caffeine dosage and performance (p = 0.21).

Therefore, energy drinks may improve physical performance, and taurine may be responsible of these effects.
