Taurine is a conditionally essential amino acid found in large concentrations in skeletal muscle, also concentrations are found in, and required by the brain, and heart. Taurine draws water and nutrients into muscle cells, promoting recovery and increasing cell volume and fullness. Taurine also regulates water and electrolytes in the blood, playing an essential role in preventing muscle cramping, allowing for the proper function of the minerals potassium, calcium, magnesium, and sodium. Metabolism support benefits from taurine may improve body composition and weight reduction. Taurine supplementation has been shown to help lower anxiety in stress-related physical states. Taurine plays a role as a “carrier” for other nutrients, and allows better absorption. It is a recommended companion to creatine since it contributes to greater bio-availability, and superior absorption. Supplementing with 3 grams of taurine per day for seven weeks have shown to help reduce body weight, in overweight adults. The subjects also saw an improvement in blood glucose management (blood-sugar) and saw significant declines in their serum triglycerides and atherogenic index ratio, which are established risk factors for developing heart disease.
