If you’re interested in delaying cognitive decline due to aging, fighting oxidative stress, reducing fatigue, boosting fat metabolization, then a taurine supplement might be worth a top spot on your grocery list.
Taurine is a key organic amino acid that takes part in many aspects of your health, particularly brain function and heart health. Your body creates taurine by itself, except when you’re sick or stressed.
Taurine is found naturally in dairy, seafood, and meat, and is also available as a supplement. Plus, it’s a common ingredient in energy drinks… and yes, we definitely include it in Kimera Koffee because of these three benefits…
BENEFITS OF A TAURINE SUPPLEMENT
- BOOSTS ATHLETIC ABILITY
Because of taurine’s ability to enhance endurance and improve physical performance, numerous athletes take taurine supplements. One study followed eight runners who consumed 1,000 mg of taurine 2 hours before a middle-distance run, and their performance was heightened by an average of 1.7 percent.
- IMPROVES HEART HEALTH
Taurine has the ability to lower blood pressure and decrease inflammation. Because of this, research shows that a taurine supplement may help reduce the risk of heart disease and prevent fatty plaque build-up in the arteries.
- LOWERS RISK OF METABOLIC SYNDROME
Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that amp your risk of diabetes, heart disease and stroke. These conditions include heightened cholesterol or triglyceride levels, surplus fat around the belly and high blood pressure. Research shows that taurine was found to have “an efficient action against metabolic syndrome, which includes reducing triglycerides to prevent obesity, improving insulin resistance to regulate glucose metabolism, lowering cholesterol to prevent diet-induced hypercholesterolemia, and … reduce blood pressure.”
Keep in mind if you have any health issues it’s always important to speak with your doctor before starting taurine supplementation.
