All of energy drinks wrote they have high Taurine levels, i heard it ain't so good to drink it a lot.. So do you know what is Taurine and why it ain't good?

hi according to what I read taurine is like an amino acid but lacks some stuff amino acids have but its present in our bodies and helps to keep too much sodium from getting into our blood cells while it keeps needed potassium and calcium n locked inside our blood cells,.so near as I could find out its not unsafe at all and is used in the body to keep us healthy. they also said it is high in energy drinks but is still at a safe level. so do notworry about. purineds are the things you shouild worry about as they cause painjul acidcrfystal in the blood causing gout.
