Muscle growth and repair L-Taurine is the active form of one of the 20 amino acids that the body needs to produce the protein it uses for the growth and repair of muscle and other tissues. An athlete who consumes insufficient amino acids could suffer a loss of muscle mass and a compromised ability to capitalise on a bout of training. Stamina and recovery Taurine is considered a conditional amino acid, meaning that although the human body has the ability to synthesise it for itself, under circumstances it must be supplied by the diet or in supplement form. As a supplement, L-Taurine is popularly used to support stamina and recovery from exercise. Antioxidant properties L-Taurine has a role in protecting the body against the damage that results from the oxidative stress caused by free radicals.
