Taurine is an amino acid, but why is taurine important?

Recent research published in the journal Science starts with the headline Taurine deficiency as a driver of aging (Singh P, et.al., 2023).

They go on saying that concentrations of circulating taurine decline with aging in mice, monkeys, and humans. Supplementation with taurine increased the health span (the period of healthy living) and life span in mice and health span in monkeys. In humans, lower taurine concentrations correlated with several age-related diseases.

Taurine has also been found to suppress mitochondrial dysfunction, decrease DNA damage, and decrease inflammation among other things.

Taurine plays a vital role in the energy metabolism (Wen C, et., al., 2019). Supplementation with taurine can strengthen the energy metabolism in muscle performance, cardiac function, liver activity, and adipose tissue.

Studies have shown that taurine supplementation protects against pathologies associated with mitochondrial defects, such as aging, mitochondrial diseases, metabolic syndrome, cancer, cardiovascular disease, and neurological disorders (Jong CJ, et., al., 2021).

A vast literature reported beneficial effects of taurine in liver dysfunction, gastrointestinal injury, kidney diseases, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. Most of its effects were attributed to its modulation of Ca2+ homeostasis as well as to its antioxidant properties (Bkaily G, et., al., 2020).

A placebo controlled study showed that taurine supplementation significantly reduced blood pressure in pre-hypertensive individuals (Sun Q, et.,al., 2016).

A review of 19 studies related to improved sports performance showed that taurine dosing appears to be effective at 1-3 grams per day when used 1-3 hours before an activity which may improve aerobic performance, anaerobic performance (strength, power), recovery, and a decrease in metabolic markers (creatine kinase, lactate, inorganic phosphate) (Kurtz JA, et., al., 2021).
