Supplement Ingredient Guide: Taurine


What is it?

Taurine is an amino acid which acts as a membrane stabiliser and aids various anti-oxidant mechanisms. It is found in foods, highest being in meats.



The main indication for taurine is to reduce cramping when using fat burners containing Ephedrine-like compounds.


How much should I take?

One should take between 0.5-2g of taurine per day with a maximal safe upper limit set at 3g.



The evidence base behind taurine is rather weak with it mostly pointing to promoting general health and well-being.


Side effects

No lifetime side effects have been reported with a supplementation of up to 3g per day.
