Taurine IV therapy in Orange County

<<Back to IV drip ingredients list

What is taurine?

Taurine is an amino acid found in the body, many foods, and of course energy drinks.

Taurine IV benefits in Orange County CA

Taurine benefits include improved athletic performance & reduced anxiety.

Taurine is what’s known as a conditionally essential (or semi-essential) amino acid, meaning it can be made by the body… most of the time. Newborns need to get their taurine from breastmilk or a supplemented formula until they’ve developed enough to produce their own. At the other end of the spectrum, aging also reduces the body’s ability to produce enough taurine.

People lacking certain nutrients and/or enzymes may not be able to make their own taurine, and need a supplement to boost levels. Supplementing with taurine is also used to treat a range of health conditions including cardiovascular disease, migraines, insomnia, macular degeneration and many others.

Taurine gets is name from taurus (Latin) meaning bull, because a long time ago it was extracted from bulls (it’s also found in meat, fish, and dairy). Now taurine is typically made in labs and is fine for vegetarians/vegans.

But isn't taurine in energy drinks dangerous?

There’s been a lot of negative press surrounding energy drink ingredients, but don’t blame taurine: the dangers posed by energy drinks come from the high levels of caffeine and sugar mixed with other additives.

Taurine is a safe organic molecule with many health benefits, and an ingredient in many of our IV treatments and Boost Shots.

Taurine health benefits

Taurine has been found in several different organs and tissues in the body, and it has a direct effect on many important functions including:

Taurine has been used for many other situations and health outcomes as well, and it is still being studied. It has been called a ‘wonder molecule’ by some researchers.

Taurine for athletes

There have been many studies on taurine’s effects on athletic performance. Some of the most exciting findings include:

Taurine also helps clear lactic acid when exercising, which helps muscles endure longer and feel less sore.

Taurine for anxiety

Because taurine helps with production and regulation of GABA, it plays an important part in calming anxiety and stabilizing mood.2 Low GABA levels have been associated with chronic anxiety, mood disorders, and epilepsy.

Taurine as an antioxidant

Taurine works differently than other antioxidants, making it a valuable addition to IV therapies that help you detoxify. Rather than scavenging and cleaning up free radicals (like vitamin C), taurine helps prevent or limit oxidative stress in the first place. It also helps protect antioxidant enzymes.
