Prohormone & Supplement Ingredients:


L-Taurine is a conditional amino acid necessary to the body to properly synthesize proteins and to help ensure proper nerve and neurological functioning. As a conditional amino acid, the body can naturally produce its own L-Taurine, but for many people they cannot produce enough to meet the needs of their system. Athletes, bodybuilders and persons under highly stressful pressure may need an increase level of L-Taurine to protect the synapses and nerve endings during times of increased physical and mental stress.

It is important to note that although L-Taurine has been studied, it is not clear to scientists why it works or how taking it in supplement form or deriving it from an increased diet of meat and fish allows the body to metabolize it better. What is known is that it has shown to have an effect on many different cardiovascular functions of the body. Many athletes will choose to take a high level of Taurine to increase the blood flow and oxygen to their muscles and to increase their ability to focus during training as well.

L-Taurine acts as a diuretic on the body and the only known caution is for people who are taking the medication Lithium to avoid the supplement as it can interfere with how the body processes the Lithium leading to toxic levels or deficiencies.
