The health benefits of taurine are far-reaching. Here are some of the potential advantages you can get from this amino acid:
Improved heart health
Taurine has been found to help reduce inflammation and arterial thickening. Studies also found a link between having high taurine levels and reduced bad cholesterol and blood pressure levels, as well as low death rates.
Better vision health
There’s a large concentration of taurine in the eyes, so insufficient levels may play a role in macular decline. By increasing taurine intake, you may help improve your eyesight.
May be beneficial for diabetics
This amino acid may help improve blood sugar control among people with diabetes. There’s also research saying that getting increased amounts may even reduce blood sugar levels and insulin resistance.
Relieve anxiety and stress
Taurine can bind to the GABA receptors found in the brain, which are essential in controlling and calming your central nervous system.
May prevent hearing loss
One study found that taurine helped eliminate ringing in the participants’ ears (tinnitus), which has been linked to hearing loss.
Perhaps the most well-known benefit of taurine is its supposed ability to improve athletic performance – one reason why manufacturers are adding this to their products.
