Anyone look at any studies on taurine? I'm wondering why its a major ingredient in NOS energy drinks. The only real nos in them seems to be l-carnitine. They're great for energy booste tho.

it appears that taurine play a role in preserving the NOS pathways in certain cases improving endothelial health. there are several studies but this seems to be presentative

==========
AIM To investigate the characteristics of L arginine/NO pathway in vascular calcification and the effect
of administration of extraneous taurine on the metablism of arginine/NO pathway in vascular calcification. METHODS The vascular Calcification model was produced by vitamin D 3 plus nicotine. Vascular calcium content, activity of alkaline phosphatase(ALP), plasma arginine and nitrite content, vascular cGMP, vascular NOS activity and arginine transport were measured. RESULTS The vascular calcium content and the ALP activity increased 6 6 times and 12 6 times in VDN rats( P <0 01), respectively compared with control group, and plasma NO production, vascular cGMP content were obviously decreased ( P <0 01), the activity of total NOS was increased, mainly increased constitutive NOS( P <0 01). However, the L arginine transport of vascular was obviously decreased ( P <0 01). After administrating taurine in VDN rats, the vascular calcium content and ALP activity were decreased ( P <0 01), the production of plasma NO and vascular cGMP content were increased ( P <0 01), and the L arginine transport of vascular smooth muscle and endothelia obviously enhanced (+79 4% and 55 1%, all P values <0 01), compared with VDN group. CONCLUSION Taurine may attenuate the vascular calcification and improve the disturbance of L arginine/NOS/NO/cGMP pathway in rats induced by Vit D 3 plus nicotine. Thus, it appears that there is a potential clinical value of protection and treatment in taurine to the vascular calcification of atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular diseases.

Looking at the study makes me wonder why arginine isn't in the drink. I supplement arginine and ornithine anyway so 2-3 grams of taurine daily should be beneficial. @lan on adding alcar in the mix soon.

Does nicotine have a negative effect on the taurine benefits? I generally have a rub with NOS drinks.

It actually is the one of the best remedies for constipation as it helps produce bile from the liver..It's also been linked to having endurance benefits, so a + for me..Try 2 gms before bed if feeling a little stopped up..works really well..I use 1gm daily.
