What does the taurine in Re-Lyte Pre-Workout do?

Taurine can support healthy muscle function during workouts and help stimulate your metabolism.

Taurine is an essential amino acid that's found naturally in foods like meat and fish, as well as throughout your body. It's in your muscles and brain, along with many other organs. It plays an important role in a bunch of bodily functions, including regulating calcium levels, balancing electrolytes, supporting your nervous system, and aiding your immune system.

Taurine also helps promote proper muscle function during a workout, which is why we included it in Re-Lyte Pre-Workout. In fact, taurine has a lot of workout-related benefits that make it a great supplement to take before you sweat. Research shows it can:

  • Help reduce muscle damage and soreness.
  • Support fat burning while exercising.
  • Help stimulate the metabolism.
  • Support healthy muscle growth.
  • Promote reduced fatigue during long exercise sessions.
  • Help regulate muscle contractions.

In a 2015 study, researchers found that taurine may control muscle metabolism. That means it could help the cells in your muscle tissue absorb more energy, which would allow your muscles to work harder. 

Research also shows that low taurine levels may be linked to cardiomyopathy, a condition that causes the heart to work faster than it should. That means taurine could help support healthy heart function.
