Taurine anyone?

  1. Question Taurine anyone?


    Anyone take taurine? I've got a big bag of the stuff I got on a deal a while ago but have never been quite sure how best to utilise. Anyone seen results with it?


  2. I used it to combat the back pumps when I was on cycle. But that was extent of my usage of it.

    X2 I take Taurine anytime I'm on Dbol or Adrol to prevent pumps. I also use it in clen and ephedra with plenty of water to stay hydrated.

  5. Used it all the time years ago, pre-workout for energy....Also can help provide a bit of a pump. Five grams pre-workout, anymore than that and it can cause gastrointestinal distress. You can add it to pre-workouts or take it straight. Using it to combat "back pumps" is a fairly new idea. Never used it for that. It actually used to be pretty popular used pre-workout....

  6. After recently reading a few studies from Ergo log about its ability to raise testosterone etc, I decided to give it a try, most of the studies had been done on animals, so I am somewhat experimenting with it.

    Dosage is at 6 grams per day,3g morning and 3g afternoon.
    Two weeks in I have been noticing more energy. Need less sleep, Libido up.
    An unexpected side effect is cognitive improvement. My anxiety issue is gone, which I often suffer from due to stressful situations arising from custody battle with daughter, work etc.
    Not placebo, have tried many different supplements before. This supplement definatley has something going for it at higher dosages.

  7. Interesting. I'm not on a cycle or anything, but I'll throw some in to my pre-workout and see how it goes. I've read some conflicting stuff about absorption competition with beta alanine, so not sure if that's anything to worry about, as I've seen it refuted as much as the opposite.

  8. I take 3 grams of taurine preworkout, I quite like it.

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

  10. I think taurine sort of faded out of preworkout use due to its dose size not working well with the trend towards small formula concentrates.

    You've only got room for a couple of multi-gram ingredients in the typical concentrate, and beta alanine/creatine have far more study/evidence behind them than does taurine.

  11. I like Taurine pre-workout. Usually shoot for 1-2g. Betaine, L-Alanine, and Taurine are great in a pre-workout setting.

  12. Five grams was always the suggested dose. Anything over that and it gives people the poops.

  13. Taurine seems to take the anxiety away when I use it with a pre-workout that causes me jitters.

    Not really, dosing is bodyweight-dependent

    It has anti-depressant neurological effects

  16. Been experimenting with small doses in the morning and evening and the anti-anxiety part really seems to be pronounced. Might have to be a staple for me given the simplicity and price. As Feather stated, it also takes the edge off stims nicely.

  17. Why did this stuff fall out of favor?. I remember taking it before pre-workouts were even popular/around.

    That is exactly what the article wanted you to experience. Successful marketing on the Ergo site!

    Is it as good as 500mg testosterone?

    It came along after glutamine was fizzling out and was touted as its replacement. Since it doesn't really have dramatic impacts on workouts, I think we all kinda kicked it to the curb. These days, now that I know what stress is all about, I definitely appreciate it's calming properties moreso than the supposed fitness benefits.

  20. ive done around 4-6g

  21. Taurine is a staple for me, I use 5-6g pre workout every day. Has some very very good benefits for the small price tag in bulk. No-brainer.

    That's the key to its fairly cheap to buy in bulk and easy to dose.

    Ingredients come and go in the supplement industry - its humorous how certain ingredients are reintroduced as exciting and new.

    This is always hilarious.

    Especially when people tout things that have been around for decades as new.

    Or when people claim they're the first company to sell something, when it's being sold by dozens of supplement companies already, just not your typical bodybuilding supplement companies.

    Funny industry is funny.

  25. I started using Taurine for back pumps as has been mentioned. But i currently use it to promote hydration. Mixing it with my pre workout blend.

    I like the idea of it being included in an intra workout supplement as Coop has mentioned.

    No.....its only taurine, unless marketed by Muscle Tec in which case it probably could...
