What benefits are you hoping to get from taurine supplementation?
It seems from your post that you are a bit sketchy about the effects/expected results you will get from taurine. Also, do you know that many protein powders have taurine in them? I don’t know the quantity, it may be a pixie-dusting or it may be a gram or two, you should investigate.
My understanding is that taurine is a cell volumizer. An expected result of this is increased protein synthesis which, theoretically, could lead to better recovery time.
In my opinion it would only be a good choice, like 90% of supplementation, if all other aspects of your training are in order and if your ultimate goal is dependent on such a response.
Currently I’m following Berardi’s 7 Habits to the letter, and am slowly going to increase carb intake. Shortly, I’ll begin taking bi-weekly BF%ages, but thats not what I’m looking at taurine for.
Like I said, I’m looking to increase recovery time and I am looking to have more energy in the morning (I already strive to get as much sleep as possible).
Anyways, taurine is relatively cheap; about 0.04 cents per gram, so at a serving of 3 grams thats 0.12 cents.
However, I will try the stack without taurine, and then add it in and see how it goes, unless anyone has any other suggestions.
