Overview

What is Taurine and how does it work?

Taurine is a semi-essential amino acid is commonly used by bodybuilders and athletes due to its reported ability to enhance resistance performance. Theories of how it benefits performance include increasing vascularity and blood flow to the working muscles, increasing energy levels and reducing oxidative stress in muscle cells, whilst also helping to prevent cramping.

Taurine is required for a number of vital functions within the body and plays an important role in immune system, heart and blood health. Taurine is a semi-essential amino acid and therefore is naturally produced in our bodies, however as one of the most abundant amino acids in muscle tissue the body is not always able to meet demand when under periods of enhanced stress such as intense training and therefore a dietary source is also required.

What are the performance benefits of Taurine?

Supplementation with Taurine has been demonstrated to enhance strength and cardiovascular performance in both young and older populations (da Silva 2014, Beyranvand 2011). It has also been shown to reduce oxidative stress after training (Zhang 2004). Taurine is commonly used pre-workout as it is may aid the transport and delivery of nutrients into muscle cells, thus promoting glycogen replenishment and protein synthesis. Furthermore Taurine is commonly used by athletes to help improve mental focus as it has been proposed that Taurine works as an inhibitory neurotransmitter, helping to calm the brain activity and nervous system to reduce stress and anxiety.

Taurine can be taken any time of day for general health benefits. It has been shown to help attenuate Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) when 2g is taken with a dose of Branched Chain Amino Acids three times per day (Ra 2013). We recommend taking Taurine approximately 30-45 minutes before training .
