Taurine May Help Reduce Oxidative Stress

Taurine is a naturally occurring sulfur-containing amino acid that is particularly concentrated in the brain, eyes, heart, and muscles. A recent study has found that supplementation with taurine may help reduce oxidative stress and support healthy aging.

The researchers recruited 24 sedentary women with an average age of 61 to participate in the study. They were given 1.5 g of taurine or a placebo daily for 16 weeks. Taurine levels and oxidative stress markers were measured at baseline and at the end of the study period.

Participants in the taurine group saw increases in plasma concentrations of taurine. They also saw an increase in the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase and a decrease in the oxidative stress marker malondialdehyde.

The report was conducted by researchers from the State University of Sao Paulo. It was published in the September, 2022 edition of the journal Nutrition.

Curcumin was found to help decrease oxidative stress in a previous study.
