Taurine is a non-essential amino acid, which can be produced by the body with the help of cysteine. Taurine is important in the development of the central nervous system and the regulation of fluids in the body?s cells. Furthermore, taurine has been attributed partial protective functions for cell membranes and antioxidant properties. Studies have shown that drinks containing taurine can furthermore significantly prolong the duration of their impact at a higher level of intensity. In combination with caffeine, taurine can have a stimulating and invigorating effect. Taurine improves and/or regenerates muscle tone and has a detoxifying effect.
