Taurine Usage?

Has anyone tried taurine?

I cut out the energy drinks and started using Power Drive and taurine…works well and it’s cheaper.

would using taurine and not Power Drive be okay? Also what have to expirenced from using it

It’s sort of a neural activation thing I guess. Choach Thib recommends 3-5g before workout. Give it a shot and see how you feel. Power Drive is basically DMAE and tyrosine, you might give them a shot as well, but it’s not necessary.

It might work for you, and Taurine is real cheap. But in my experience there is magic in Power Drive! I’ve tried Taurine by itself and have tried Dmae pills, alone and even together it has never been the same.

Also, Spike and taurine seems to be working like the old Spike. That is to say, it’s the best thing since sliced bread.
