In recent years, there has been a clear increase in the popularity of energy drinks among teenagers and young people.

Such drinks usually contain tonic components (taurine, caffeine), biologically active additives, vitamins and sugars, which have an invigorating effect on the body. However, despite the popularity of the product among the youth audience, the mechanisms for choosing a particular drink have not been fully studied.
