Definitions for "L-Taurine"
L-Taurine is a building block of all the other amino acids. It aids in the transport of potassium, sodium, calcium and magnesium in and out of cells, thus helping to generate nerve impulses.
One of the most abundant amino acids found in muscle tissue, taurine is considered to play an important role in glucose and amino acid metabolism. It also serves as an anti-catabolic agent. Intense training can deplete the levels of taurine faster than the body can produce it. Adequate supplementation may be extremely beneficial for athletes. BACK
