Taurine increases muscle contractility in both skeletal and cardiac muscle, meaning better workouts due to
increased muscle output
Taurine helps exercising muscle rid itself of lactic acid and protects muscle against oxidative stress which, in
turn, reduces muscle damage
The levels of some amino acids in muscle cells can rise when taking Taurine, specifically glutamine and the
BCAAs valine, leucine and isoleucine. It may be that Taurine raises the concentration function of glycogen
Diabetes and Diabetic complications:
Taurine supports nerve fiber integrity, potentially slowing or reversing painful diabetic neuropathy.
In the retina, another target of destructive elevated blood glucose, taurine fights glucose-induced oxidant
stress and preserves the health of light-sensing cells in diabetic retinopathy.
Human studies show that 3 grams per day of taurine for 7 weeks reduced body weight significantly in a group
of overweight or obese (but not-yet-diabetic) adults. Subjects saw significant declines in their serum
triglycerides and “atherogenic index,” a ratio of multiple cholesterol components that predicts
Taurine may help treat high blood pressure, according to a 2002 report published in Amino Acids. Looking at
data from preliminary research, the report's authors found that taurine supplementation may lead to
significant decreases in blood pressure
Supplementing with Taurine may help reduce levels of homocysteine
A study of patients needing coronary bypass surgery showed that consuming a liquid drink containing 3
grams of taurine, combined with 3 grams carnitine, 150 mg CoQ10, and basic multivitamin nutrients,
reduced left-sided ventricular volume during the heart’s resting phase (diastole).Increased left-ventricular
diastolic volume is the single greatest predictor of death in patients requiring bypass or stent placements.
This makes taurine a vital component of such patients’ diets.
Human studies reveal the impact of taurine on liver disease. When 24 patients with chronic hepatitis took 2
grams of taurine 3 times daily for 3 months, serum markers of liver damage, as well as markers of oxidative
stress, decreased significantly, as did their elevated levels of cholesterol and triglycerides.
Relieving panic attacks and anxiety due to GABA effects of Taurine. Studies corroborate the
neuromodulatory role of taurine in the brain. Taurine administration results in an increase of inhibitory and a
decrease of excitatory neurotransmission in the glutamatergic (hippocampus) and GABAergic (striatum) brain
structures, affecting more markedly the neurotransmitter precursors.
3-5 grams for panic attacks, anxiety
3-5 grams for homocysteine, heart and diabetes support
6 grams for athletes (in divided doses)
