    NJ, how would you compare taurine to creatine in terms of water retainment (bloating), muscle-preservation, strength-preservation, etc.?

    If you take over a certain amount it gives you "the runs". Seriously.

    I'm using up to 3g and had no problems. You'd need alot to get 'the runs' from it.

    I dose it seperately from beta alanine as beta alanine depletes taurine levels. I like to time mine after training with creatine for better creatine absorption and the relaxing calming feeling taurine causes
