If you are thinking of taurine as merely an energizing substance you may be surprised! I was prescribed Taurine by my phisician to restore my nervous and vascular system and everything related to it, as well as the production of bile. I was taking also other supplements, but there was something different about taurine - it gave me strength, to wake up, to think better and to feel better. In my opinion everyone should do a round of taurine once in a while, because we often don't assume enough, especially if vegan or vegetarian as me, to give the body a boost for a while.
The only thing I didn't appreciate is that the capsules are in gelatine, my fault - didn't read well the details. Anyway I believe there are better solutions for pills, vegfriedly :) Great price! It also helped me with migraine, but only with mild attacks.
Interestingly, I use this when I make homemade cat food. It's one of the ingredients in their diet that helps with brain function, nerves, eyes, heart, digestion, just to name a few. I like Source Naturals because they use quality ingredients, and the packaging isn't a clear plastic so light can filter in and destroy the nutrients.
Somewhat long yet simpler to swallow than the huge tablets. Dr endorsed for muscle issues and muscle squandering. Supportive for squeezing in under seven days. The body makes its own taurine. My body doesn't make enough. A lot of anything can be something terrible so do some examination prior to taking any enhancements.
This product is not magic, but it's a good ingredient to add to your diet. Especially if you have demanding job/loads of stress/intense training. The main benefit for me is the energy levels, i feel like i get more things done when I'm taking it.
I still don't have a strong opinion about taurine. this may be too anecdotal to rely on but I speculate that has given me a weird side effect in overly sensitive nipples. I am a male and never had an issue with it. stopped taking it and went away. i must point out that i took this in conjuntion with other supplements including selenium and i'm still in the process of doing an elimination experiment to see which one may have been the cause or if it was the fact of compounding them
