Taurine Spotlight

Taurine Ingredient Spotlight Taurine Ingredient Spotlight

Discover whether taurine is good for you, what it does, and why it’s included in some of Kyäni’s products in this week’s ingredient spotlight.

Taurine Benefits

Taurine is an essential amino acid that is naturally found in meat, dairy, and fish. It is also contained in a lot of energy drinks, leading to its slightly complicated reputation.

Research suggests taurine may support cognitive and physical performance.1,2 It also supports metabolism, muscle recovery, and heart health.3 Some studies suggest taurine can support eyesight and hearing and help support healthy blood sugar levels.4,5,6

With so many great benefits, why does taurine often have a not-so-great reputation? Taurine is often combined with loads of caffeine and sugar in energy drinks, both of which can be harmful in large amounts. But in recommended amounts, taurine has shown to be completely safe.

Turn ON™ the Taurine

With several powerful benefits, taurine is one of several premium ingredients in Kyäni ON.

ON includes the power of taurine, which acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain, in safe and effective amounts. This brain-supporting nootropic also contains naturally sourced guarana extract and a proprietary blend of optimized nootropics to deliver sustainable energy, focus, attention, and clarity.

Experience the difference of Kyani ON, available in these great flavors: peach mango, raspberry grapefruit, and caffeine-free peach mango.
