What is L-Taurine?
Taurine is a chemical, an amino acid that is needed to build protein stocks. Taurine can be found in the retina, heart, brain, and blood cells (platelets). The best sources of protein rich in Taurine are fish and meat.
How does it work?
Research professionals are still not sure why Taurine is so helpful with CHF (congestive heart failure). Some evidence says that it might improve the left ventricle’s functions. It may additionally improve heart failure considering that it can decrease blood pressure and calm down the sympathetic nervous system, which has the tendency to be way too active in individuals with increased blood pressure and congestive heart failure. A person’s sympathetic nervous system is that specific part of the nervous system that deals with stress.
Used To Treat
Probably efficient for:
- CHF (congestive heart failure) – Taurine seems to be improving heart functions and additional symptoms in individuals with moderate to severe heart failure. Some patients suffering from severe heart failure managed to improve their conditions after 4 to 8 weeks of treatment. As long as the treatment based on Taurine is continued, improvement results were visible.
- Hepatitis (liver disease) – Taurine may have positive effects in people with hepatitis.
Insufficient evidence for the following conditions
Cystic fibrosis – supplements based on Taurine may be useful together with a regular treatment to decrease fatty stools in kids with cystic fibrosis. Nevertheless, it doesn’t seem to perk up lung function, growth, and additional symptoms related to cystic fibrosis.
Mental performance – recent clinical research has been suggesting that combining Taurine with caffeine might lead to minor improvement in mental health and performance. It may boost verbal reasoning and attention, but it doesn’t seem to have any other effects on the memory.
Additional conditions – more proof is required to rate Taurine for additional uses
Taurine can be referred to as ‘a conditional amino acid’ and not as ‘an essential amino acid’. Unlike an essential amino acid that can’t be produced in the body, a conditional amino acid can be manufactured by people’s systems. Individuals who can’t produce Taurine are advised to take it from supplements. For instance, supplementation is required in kids who are not being breastfed since their ability to produce Taurine is not yet properly developed yet (the milk from cows doesn’t have sufficient amounts of Taurine). Hence, Taurine is often included in formulas for infants. Taurine is additionally advised for people who are being tube-fed, and the excess is being eliminated by the kidneys.
Some individuals take supplements based on Taurine as medicine to deal with CHF ( congestive heart failure), liver disease (hepatitis), high blood pressure, cystic fibrosis and high cholesterol(hypercholesterolemia). Additional uses include: autism, seizure disorders (epilepsy), eye problems (disorders of the retina), alcoholism, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and diabetes. It can also be used to boost mental performance considering its antioxidant powers. Antioxidants have the ability to protect the body’s cells from specific damage that might come from specific chemicals reactions that involve oxygen.
How to take/dosage
By mouth – 2-6 grams/day in 2-3 divided doses, for the treatment of CHF; 4 grams/3 times/day for acute hepatitis
Possible side effects
When taken in recommended doses, Taurine is POSSIBLY SAFE for both kids and adults. Taurine was successfully used in studies last lasted over a year, and the supplement was safely given to children aged between 1 and 4 months. Specialists involved in the study of Taurine have not reported any serious side effects.
Mild interactions – watch out with these combinations
Taurine interacts with lithium – Taurine may have similar effects with diuretics and ‘water pills’. Taking the supplement may interfere with the way the body eliminates lithium. This might boost the amounts of lithium within the system and lead to possible side effects. Prior to starting to use this product, talk to your physician as your lithium dosage might need changing.
Breastfeeding and pregnancy – not enough information is known at this moment related to taking Taurine when breastfeeding or during a pregnancy. Avoid Taurine during this time.
Bipolar disorder – there’s some apprehension that taking Taurine in increased amounts could worsen bipolar disorders. There was one case when a 36 year old individual with controlled bipolar disorder ended up in the hospital with mania symptoms after having consumed too many power drinks based on caffeine, Taurine, inositol and additional ingredients, for nearly 4 days.
Things to note
Taurine can be slightly depressive via boosting levels of GABA into the brain.
