See answer : Red bull contains caffeine, taurine, glucuronolactone, b-group vitamins, sucrose, and glucose. The amount of caffeine (80mg) is similar to a cup of coffee. There's evidence to suggest that caffeine does increase sperm motility. Whether this translates into better fertility and pregnancy rates is not known. Further high-quality research is needed in this area. Re: other ingredients. Unknown effects.

Probably harm...: Do you mean red bull energy drink? If yes, no and no reason to be. Fact: such drink contains nerve stimulant to artificially keep persons wakeful and alert just like that from coffee drinking, which may lead to chronic sleep deprivation. As well, such condition may bring more harm to all cells of body like the effect of alcohol and smoking. Besides, sperms have nerve system to regulate excitement.
