Taurine

taurine

While there is a long standing myth that Taurine is derived from a Bull’s testicles, this could not be further from the truth. In fact the common amino acid was first isolated in 1827 by German scientists who located it in Ox bile hence it’s name with Latin references. It wasn’t until the 1970s where further studies were undertaken that identified the amino acid was present in all animals and in humans.

Since then further research has been conducted with evidence that Taurine has a number of possible core benefits to athletes:

  1. Improves exercise performance: Taurine has been shown to improve exercise performance by reducing fatigue and increasing endurance. It does this by improving the utilization of oxygen in the body, which helps to delay the onset of fatigue and improve endurance.
  2. Enhances muscle function: Taurine plays an essential role in muscle function by regulating calcium levels in the muscle cells. This helps to improve muscle contraction, which can lead to increased strength and power.
  3. Reduces oxidative stress: Taurine is a potent antioxidant that helps to protect the body against oxidative stress. This can help to reduce inflammation and prevent damage to the muscles during exercise.
  4. Improves heart health: Taurine has been shown to improve heart health by reducing blood pressure, lowering cholesterol levels, and improving blood flow. This can help to reduce the risk of heart disease and improve overall cardiovascular health.

One of the strongest findings so far is that Taurine possibly decreases oxidative stress in case you’re wondering what that means and how that helps you in simple terms when you exercise or undertake high intensity sports. Your body produces free radical oxidants such as reactive oxygen species, reactive nitrogen species, and reactive sulfur species in your cells for a broad range of reasons.

Large amounts of these oxidative can cause damage and as a response your body creates antioxidants to protect your body from damage and the research is showing that Taurine plays a role in decreasing oxidative stress. How dangerous is Oxidative stress? well, research also has proven that the damage caused through oxidative stress is associated with cancer and a variety of other diseases.

The potential benefits of Taurine speak for themselves and that’s why we’ve popped it into our pre-workout which is now available in our Shop.
