Taurine has been found in several different organs and tissues in the body, and it has a direct effect on many important functions including:
Preventing damage to cells in the retinas and inner ear
Strengthening and protecting heart muscle cells
Maintaining healthy electrolyte balance at the cellular level
Central nervous system support by acting as a neuromodulator and neuroprotectant
Slowing the release of adrenaline to reduce post-stress anxiety
Enhancing mental performance
Enhancing exercise performance & recovery
Taurine for athletes
There have been many studies on taurine’s effects on athletic performance. Some of the most exciting findings include:
Taurine may increase the amount of fat burned during exercise
Taurine reduces fatigue and makes muscles work harder
Taurine prevents muscle cell damage by protecting against oxidative stress
Taurine also helps clear lactic acid when exercising, which helps muscles endure longer and feel less sore.
Taurine for anxiety
Because taurine helps with production and regulation of GABA, it plays an important part in calming anxiety and stabilizing mood. Low GABA levels have been associated with chronic anxiety, mood disorders, and epilepsy.
Taurine as an antioxidant
Taurine works differently than other antioxidants, making it a valuable addition to IV therapies that help you detoxify. Rather than scavenging and cleaning up free radicals (like vitamin C), taurine helps prevent or limit oxidative stress in the first place. It also helps protect antioxidant enzymes.
