Vitamin Add-Ins: Taurine

Taurine is a potent supplement with many valuable uses. People use taurine for anxiety, athletic recovery, physical and mental sharpness, and much more. Mobile IV Nurses offers IV treatments with taurine that are performed at your home, office, or other convenient location.

What is Taurine?

Taurine is a type of amino acid that your body needs when you’re sick or stressed; it’s considered a conditionally essential amino acid. Your body produces taurine in the liver, and it’s also found in foods such as meat, fish, and dairy products. Taurine can also be added to products such as energy drinks.

Your body relies on taurine for many functions. Taurine hydration helps balance fluid and electrolyte levels, for instance. This supplement also supports the immune and nervous systems, and helps guard against vision problems, among other functions. It also aids metabolism—taurine helps stomach acids properly digest fats by assisting the liver in producing bile salts.

How Long Until Taurine Works?

You’re probably curious how long taurine takes to work. When people take taurine as a pre-workout supplement in a powder or capsule, it may take an hour before exercising to reap the benefits. Alternatively, a taurine IV dose gets to work much more quickly compared to an oral supplement. An oral supplement takes longer to absorb in the digestive system, whereas an IV goes straight to the bloodstream, allowing it to kick in faster.

Taurine IV Benefits

A taurine IV dose can help you in several ways. Try it for:

  • Reduced oxidative stress

Taurine has antioxidant properties. That means it helps diminish the oxidative stress on the body caused by free radicals. Oxidative stress left unchecked damages cells and DNA, speeds the signs of aging, and can increase the risk of disease.

  • Mood support

People take taurine for anxiety because it plays a role in producing the neurotransmitter Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). GABA has a relaxing effect on the brain, and low levels of GABA have been associated with anxiety disorders.

  • Athletic performance and recovery

There are multiple reasons why taurine is a common ingredient in energy drinks. It’s believed that taurine may support fat burning for energy during physical activity, promote optimal muscle movement, and reduce lactic acid buildup after workouts, which causes muscle soreness. 

  • Overall health support

Taurine may enhance your well-being by protecting cells throughout the body—including the heart, brain, nervous system, and retinas—so they stay strong.

Who Can Benefit From Taurine?

Taurine may benefit athletes, people looking for mood support, and anyone interested in seeing what this supplement can do for their overall health. Vegetarians and vegans may also want to look into taurine support because this amino acid is found mostly in animal products. You can include taurine in your drip bag at Mobile IV Nurses, along with other add-ins of your choice.
