Taurine boosts strength and recovery
In this study, 21 healthy-weight men, average age 21, took about 3,500-4,000 mg of taurine (50 mg/kg body weight) or a placebo for two weeks before performing eccentric elbow flexor exercises. Doctors measured strength levels and signs of muscle damage before, during, and after the supplement period. Compared to placebo, those who took taurine had less muscle soreness and damage,
and a greater increase in muscle strength.
