BENEFITS OF TAURINE FOR ATHLETES

Taurine is ideal to be taken as a pre workout for runners, cyclists or anyone engaging in any type of sport, workout or demanding physical activity.

🔶 Increases energy production and stamina
🔶 Aids electrolyte balance and hydration
🔶 Promotes burning of fat for energy
🔶 Supports regulation of body heat during exercise
🔶 Improves anabolic processes and boosts muscle protein synthesis
🔶 Helps to reduce exercise-induced muscle damage and soreness

vitality, wellness & healthy ageing – naturally

TAURINE FOR GENERAL WELLBEING

Taurine plays many important roles in your body – from improving heart function to calming the nervous system, supporting the brain to regulating blood pressure and energy metabolism.

🔶 Involved in healthy functioning of the heart and cardiovascular system
🔶 Plays a role in the regulation of blood sugar and insulin
🔶 Facilitates the body’s natural immunity and detox mechanisms
🔶 Aids in the digestion of fat, vitamins, and the management of cholesterol levels
🔶 Involved in bone growth and prevention of bone loss
🔶 Lowers the cortisol response to stress and can help increase levels of GABA, the brain’s calming neurotransmitter
🔶 Promotes synthesis of oestrogen in women and testosterone in men

WHY WAS TAURINE NAMED ‘THE ELIXIR OF LIFE‘?

Scientists at Columbia University named taurine The Elixir of Life after they observed the results of their studies. They saw that the mice who were given taurine had improved health, memory and lived 10% longer than normal animals. The scientists also tested a large group of people and reported that the older people with higher levels of taurine in their blood showed better health measures compared to people with lower taurine levels.
