Taurine (133 Servings)


Taurine is an intracellular amino acid abundant in skeletal muscle and, like creatine, taurine draws water into muscle cells and acts as a cell volumizer. This draws in additional nutrients for recovery and growth, which increases cell volume and builds muscle fullness. And like creatine, taurine is not present in whey protein, while all other essential and non-essential amino acids are.

  • Improves body composition

Intense exercise leads to changes in the concentration of electrolytes inside and outside the cell, i.e. loss of muscle K+ and gain of Na+, Cl - and Ca2+. Adverse changes in osmolarity are a consequence of ion imblanace-induced membrane excitability and cells combat this by manipulating organic osmolytes such as taurine.

Taurine regulates water and mineral salts in the blood. It maintains the movement of potassium, magnesium and sodium across cell membranes and regulates the ion balance between cells. Due to its ability to regulate electrolytes, it may play a role in preventing muscle cramps.
