What is Taurine?

Taurine is an amino acid that naturally exists in our bodies and in our diets. Unlike most amino acids, Taurine is not used to produce proteins so it’s classified as a ‘conditionally essential amino acid’. Taurine is found in most meats, such as fish, poultry, red meats, shellfish and even dairy products. That being said, we still recommend supplementing with Taurine in order to help promote the body’s stores of Taurine because it has some very interesting and beneficial effects when Taurine levels are increased above normal levels!

Within the body, Taurine synthesis occurs in the pancreas through the ‘cysteine sulfinic acid pathway’. This pathway produces Taurine from Cysteine. Cysteine is another very important amino acid, and is actually one of the rate limiting steps in reduced Glutathione synthesis. More interestingly though, Cysteine is one of the few sulfur containing amino acids, and because Taurine is derived from Cysteine, Taurine itself is a sulfur containing amino acid. This is interesting because Taurine acts as a donor for highly beneficial sulfur compounds in the body, such as hydrogen sulfide. Hydrogen sulfide is a very novel gaseous neurotransmitter which is also naturally present in our bodies. It is likely responsible for quite a few of Taurine's effects but we will talk more about this later!

Taurine Benefits & Uses

  • May help promote cognitive function
  • May help promote cardiovascular function
  • May help promote exercise performance
  • May help support mood

What Does Taurine Do?

Taurine acts as GABAA agonist, and this is what produces some of Taurine's calming effects. This effect is quite mild though, and due to this produces a very natural sense of relaxation! Furthermore, hydrogen sulfide, for which Taurine is a donor, also has GABAergic effects. In fact, hydrogen sulfide helps upregulate GABAB receptors! This likely also explains why Taurine’s effects on GABAB have been a topic of debate. This is because Taurine doesn’t seem to directly work on GABAB receptors, instead achieving this effect via its hydrogen sulfide elevating effect! Due to these unique GABAergic properties, it can be a very versatile supplement. It is then of course also no surprise that redbull and other energy drinks famously contain Taurine, because it helps smooth out the effects of caffeine in a similar fashion to L-theanine. In fact, we recently discovered that a combination of Taurine and L-theanine has a great synergistic effect with caffeine and you can find this combination of ingredients in our new DynaMAX plus stack!

Taurine also helps to promote blood flow. It appears to achieve this via direct mechanisms, but hydrogen sulfide is likely also a player here since it is a major mediator of blood flow. Hydrogen sulfide directly promotes smooth muscle relaxation in blood vessels and via this mechanism can produce a significant uptick in blood flow. This is an amazing cardiovascular benefit that you don’t want to miss!

If we keep following the hydrogen sulfide thread, we quickly discover that a lot of Taurine’s “unexplained effects” may actually be mediated through hydrogen sulfide. Another interesting example of this is hydrogen sulfides' effects on our muscles. Hydrogen sulfide appears to promote anabolism, which in simpler terms is muscle building! This is an effect that has also long been ascribed to Taurine without a solid explanation as to how Taurine is producing these effects. Hydrogen sulfide may be what is causing these effects though, since it has been shown that hydrogen sulfide may promote anabolism in skeletal muscles. No wonder Taurine is popular with athletes and bodybuilders, it enhances blood flow AND muscle building! Keeping with the idea that Taurine produces the bulk of its effects via hydrogen sulfide, then a whole world of interesting effects opens up such as inducing long term potential (LTP) for memory enhancement, mood enhancement, general neuroprotective effects etc. Basically, if you find an interesting effect that hydrogen sulfide produces, then you can access these effects via Taurine. Happy researching, there is a lot to discover!

    High purity Taurine

    This Taurine looks completely different from my last Taurine, it's crystally and clear. I took my old Taurine out the capsule and it wasn't as water soluble as I expected. I had Niacin from the same brand and it looked very similiar to the Taurine, I think they used Cellulose as a filler and they're a really popular and reputable brand on Amazon. I put this ND Taurine in water and it mixed in very easily without having to mix it longer like the other Taurine. Definitely high purity, very cheap, and lasts a long time.

    Happy I bought this

    I hadn't previously considered Taurine as part of my supplement or nootropic stack but now it's one I will use always. I think my sleep and overall mood have improved a lot, it should help mitigate the effects of my stimulant medication, and it also seems to help replenish testosterone levels

    Necessary component of stack

    I am coming up on finishing a 500g tub of NDs Taurine powder and it will remain a necessary component to my daily nootropic stack. It works as expected. 100% satisfied customer here. And I can not say enough about how expedient ND is at processing your order and getting it shipped. We’re 5 states away and the turnaround time from order placed to order received is super fast! We usually have product in hand within 2-3 business days from the time order was placed. And free priority shipping? You can’t beat that! My significant other and I love these guys. They’re an all around top notch company and our go to vendor for all our nootropic needs. Thank you ND.

    So cheap, and yet effective`

    Theres a reason they put this stuff in energy drinks. Potassium/Magnesium and taurine on hand to mix with stimulants like ginseng, caffeine, dynamine, B vitamins, etc just gives you a natural way to keep your nervous system from getting overstimulated. It tastes so good too :D

    Good quality and price

    Does what it says. Good for eye health. Used as part of a stack, with ALCAR, panax ginseng, schizandra, polygala, na-r-ala, agmantine, and astaxanthin. Goes well with coffee in the morning, and herbal tea in the evening, as long as you wait to add it near the end, when the liquid has cooled.
