Taurine: Boost Your Brain
Did you know that taurine has been shown to stimulate neurogenesis, the creation of new brain cells, even in the hippocampus area of the brain? This is considered the memory center and is most susceptible to damage from inflammation due to excessive stress hormone.
If you’re a label reader, you might have noticed the amino acid Taurine is listed on our label under proprietary nutraceutical blend. I don’t discuss it much because there are so many other great things to talk about in relation to TianChi.
However, one of the main reasons it's in the formula is because it calms nervous system tension, which adds to the calming effect of the adaptogens.
There has also been a flurry of research done on this amino acid recently and it just adds to what we already know about TianChi—that it's one of the most amazing single dose brain formulas on the market, truly a brain essential.
Taurine isn’t essential to making protein, but it turns out it’s essential to a lot of other important brain functions. Taurine also protects against excitotoxicity, the over stimulation of brain cells with glutamate.
Excitotoxicity causes cell death after high dosages of glutamate, but taurine has been shown to block this effect. With the amount of exposure Americans have to MSG, anything that helps protect your brain from this neurotoxic form of glutamate is something to consider using on a daily basis.
Taurine has also been shown to help maintain healthy mitochondria, keeping them operating in peak condition. There isn’t a single ingredient in TianChi that doesn’t warrant its own discussion.
Even though it has so many great ingredients the true measure of it is that all of the ingredients complement each other in your body, not just on the label.
