The benefits of taurine on brain cell growth are especially evident in those with a taurine deficiency, which includes aging individuals.
Taurine, a free amino acid, has been described by scientists as "one of the most essential substances in the body."1 But as we age, taurine levels decline.
Boosts Brain Cell Regeneration
The benefits of taurine on brain cell growth are especially evident in those with a taurine deficiency, which includes aging individuals. Promising research has found that taurine can promote new brain cell formation in the area of the brain associated with learning and memory. It does so by activating hibernating stem cells that are capable of growing into several different kinds of cells.2 Taurine also enhances neurites, the tiny projections that help brain cells communicate with each other.
Supports Whole-Body Health
Past research has also shown the ability of taurine to maintain and support:3-9
