Taurine
1000 mg 50 capsules
Item Catalog Number: 00199

Taurine, a sulphur-containing amino acid, is produced from the conditionally essential amino acid L-cysteine by the body. It is the most abundant intracellular amino acid in humans, and is found particularly throughout the excitable tissues of the central nervous system, where it is thought to have a regulating influence.205,206 Taurine can promote optimal blood flow to nervous tissue. It also appears to play an important role in many physiological processes, such as osmoregulation, immunomodulation and bile salt formation.207 Recent studies suggested that taurine might have neuro- and cardioprotective properties and provide protection against oxidative stress.207-210 Taurine is also critical for maintaining cardiac health in certain aging individuals. Dietary taurine may help maintain healthy liver function.211 However, it is deficient in many diets.212-218

        Comments about Life Extension Taurine, 1000 mg 50 capsules:

        I'm a 65-year-old longstanding Life Extension Foundation member and can attest to the benefits of taurine, featured in the June 2013 Life Extension magazine issue. Before starting taurine, it would be a struggle for me to get through a workout at the gym between noon and 2:00 p.m. without use of caffeine. I'm now able to rely on taurine alone (1000 mg) before workouts, as the article recommended, and find my stamina coming just as easily as with 80-85 mg of caffeine. After workouts I don't feel energy decline like I used to. My heart is getting a boost I can feel. Thanks so much, Life Extension, for highlighting this wonderful supplement in your magazine!

          I take two per day, one at breakfast and one at dinner. It's reported to help bile formation and that's why I take extra.
