  • No Bull, Taurine Improves Endurance Performance

    Taurine is a pseudo-amino acid that contains Sulphur and a Nitrogen group, but lacking an acid group, it can’t be an acid. In fact, it was first identified as a component of a biological fluid from bulls, but the fluid in question is bile, not semen. Supplemental taurine nowadays, luckily, is manufactured from amino acids, cysteine and methionine. Not that it would be all that weird… ancient cultures such as the Romans used to eat bull testicles for vitality.
