Familiarizing Yourself with Taurine Side Effects

Familiarizing Yourself with Taurine Side Effects

This neurotransmitter is affected by Kavinace, TravaCor, and Calm PRT

Taurine is an amino acid which is produced by our bodies. It is particularly found in large amounts in the brain, heart, blood platelets and the retina. It plays an important role in our bodily functions. It is a key component in protein build up and is a necessary nutrient for good eye function. Taurine also helps to regulate insulin, the activity of blood platelets and also in sperm movement. It is also very helpful in treating certain diseases such as high blood pressure, hepatitis, congestive heart failure and hypertension. However, there are also taurine side effects when the body is getting more than the ideal amount.

Taurine side effects are often a concern with those who are taking taurine supplements. Taurine is a common ingredient in baby milk formula because an infant’s body does not have the capability of making it on its own yet. Taurine supplements are also present in energy drinks as well as in dietary supplements.  How dangerous is it really to have excessive taurine?

Although there are not many reports on taurine side effects when taken in normal or recommended doses, there is a danger when it is taken in excess as with any other drug or medication. In one reported incident, a person who took taurine with anabolic steroids and insulin suffered a brain damage. However, it is still unclear if it was really the taurine that caused the brain damage or the other drugs which were taken together with it.

It is also known to aggravate the symptoms of bipolar disorder as there was an incident of a man suffering from bipolar disorder who got uncontrollable attacks after drinking a lot of energy drinks which contain taurine. However, there was no test to conclude that taurine alone caused the bipolar disorder to worsen. Pregnant women should also take caution in taking supplements as taurine side effects are still left unstudied in terms of its impact on a developing fetus.
