👉🏽Many of you have probably heard of Taurine, and automatically assumed it was BAD for you, because it’s found in many energy drinks. But this is entirely NOT true, let me explain…

Fluoride is a known poison to humans. However, Taurine has been shown to PROTECT against damage caused by fluoride exposure in various organs.
Most importantly Taurine Ameliorates Thyroid Dysfunction in Rats Chronically Exposed to Fluoride (Adedara et al., 2017)

Taurine and it's analogs demonstrate an excellent ability to enhance Thyroid function, via increasing the conversion of T4->T3 (Wagner et al., 2011) - say hello to better energy levels with better thyroid function!

It has HUGE potential to support metabolic energy production via:
-Enhancing mitochondrial function (Hansen et al., 2010)
-Reduces inflammation (Marcinkiewicz et al., 2014).
-Fights free radicals (Hanna et al., 2004).

Taurine is generally considered CALMING, since it aids with GABA function (Schaffer et al., 2018).
However, it also aids in dopamine release and can significantly increase BDNF levels in various regions of the brain (Numakawa et al., 2017).

Taurine is extremely beneficial to human health. In fact, it was once known as the ‘wonder molecule’ due to its ability to promote radiant health and support longevity! Another myth busted.
