    Taurine question

    Ok so i was thinking of adding some taurine with my creatine intake like 2 grams pre and 2 grams post w/o with creatine.Does this sound alright and does the taurine just give you a pump during work outs or is there more to it??Lastly if anyone has taken it id like to know what they thought about it and howd it work for you!?! Thanks in advance

    I don't think it helps with pumps. It acts more like creatine where it provides muscle hydration and protein synthesis.

    Personally I find it's benefits me with headaches and muscle cramps.

    [quote Creatine Supplements - AST Creatine HSC ]

    Creatine HSC Information - 4lbs from AST
    We all know creatine monohydrate works. You take it - you get bigger and you get stronger. You feel good, you feel big, and you feel strong. You can knock out more and more reps with heavier and heavier weights. It’s great stuff - at least for the first month or so. Then what happens? Bam! You hit that wall. The weights aren’t moving up like they did at first. That pump just doesn’t seem quite as full as it use to. You know what I mean. This is called diminished creatine efficacy. It happens to everyone who relies on simple creatine monohydrate for the their creatine saturation needs.

    One of the fundamental missions at AST Sports Science is to foster a greater understanding into the dynamics of muscle anabolism through nutritional intervention. With this fundamental approach AST Sports Science became the first company to enhance the effectiveness of creatine monohydrate with our original Creatine Complex-5™. Now Creatine HSC™ takes the science of creatine supplementation even further. New Creatine HSC is designed to create a more efficient and congruent atmosphere to increase creatine uptake and utilization within the muscle cell by effectively manipulating the intricate metabolic pathways of the phospho-creatine cycle.

    Creatine HSC’s scientifically based creatine formula utilizes an advanced substrate understanding to enhance the biological mechanisms of creatine metabolism. Creatine HSC maximizes the integration of creatine carrier sub-pathways and bioenergetic mediation to effectively increase muscle cell creatine uptake, retention and creatine/ATP turnover.

    Creatine HSC’s innovative “Hyper-Saturation Creatine Complex” incorporates pure HPLC creatine monohydrate with an integrated bio-energetic ATP support system, a dual-phosphate / taurine matrix, unique sodium / creatine mediators and DGC™ (high-glycemic-index dextrorotatory glucose crystals) to help facilitate a desired creatine “Hyper-Saturation” effect. Through this “Hyper-Saturation” effect, Creatine HSC delivers over 87% more creatine to your muscles than creatine monohydrate alone. And it doesn’t stop there . . .

    ATP Support System - AST Sports Science is currently the only company researching the bio-energetic complexities of the phospho-creatine cycle in order to gain a better understanding of the co-interactions with relation to creatine / ATP synthesis. These important intermediaries are key to increasing the intensity and duration of creatine’s muscle building effects. By providing these essential intermediate substrates, Creatine HSC fuels a micro-cellular environment prime for continued creatine/ATP turnover long after other creatine supplements have stopped producing results. Other creatine formulas ignore important substrate activity that is involved in the proliferation of ATP.

    This oversight limits creatine’s potential as a fuel and a buffer for ATP and as a contributor to cell hyper-hydration, protein accrual and muscular growth. Creatine HSC provides the necessary micro-nutrients that take advantage of creatine’s site-specific substrate activity. By providing these bio-energetic nutrients responsible for sustained creatine/ATP turnover, Creatine HSC delivers continual dynamic muscle performance increases month after month after month.

    Sodium-Creatine Mediators - Unknown to but a few resourceful researchers, creatine uptake by the muscle cell is sodium dependent - sodium is required for proper muscle-creatine delivery and utilization. Providing the proper intra / extra-cellular creatine-sodium chemical gradient is crucial to “hyper” creatine transport - getting more creatine in the muscle than normally allowed under ordinary cellular-metabolic states. Creatine HSC stimulates sodium-creatine cotransport by increasing the transmembrane sodium concentration gradient. This increased sodium flow into the cell allows a thermodynamic creatine attatchment to “hitch-a-ride” in with the sodium. Creatine HSC provides a precise sodium requirement to increase cellular creatine accumulation through cross-membrane sodium transport. Another first in the industry.

    Dual-Phosphate / Taurine Matrix - Creatine HSC integrates a precise sodium-potassium phosphate combination along with HPLC Taurine for increased muscle cell hydration and insulin-like mediation for creatine transport to promote an optimum cellular medium for accelerated muscle growth. Controlled studies have demonstrated Taurine’s potent insulin-like characteristics and have also shown insulin potentiating attributes as well. This dual mimic-potentiate ability may foster an even greater net effect in insulin mediated creatine transport. Numerous studies are indicating the more creatine that can be driven into the muscle cell, the more potential for substantial lean mass accumulation.

    DGC - Creatine HSC incorporates new high-glycemic-index dextrorotatory glucose crystals. This new glucose component helps mediate a significant increase in creatine uptake and retention by having a sharp impact on serum insulin levels. This insulin “spike” mediates a “hyper” uptake of creatine into the muscle cell. DGC provides this insulin medium without the overly sweet sensation other insulin spiking methods produce. Not only does Creatine HSC redefine the science of creatine supplementation, but it now provides a refreshing way to do it.

    New Creatine HSC comes in two awesome and refreshing flavors - Juicy Grape and Lemon Squeeze. Both are available in 2.2 pound (23 servings) and 4 pound (41 servings) containers. You just scoop it into a glass, add cold water and stir. Creatine HSC mixes instantly into a great tasting, very refreshing and potent muscle-building drink. It doesn’t load you down or weigh heavy on your stomach. Creatine HSC is simple to use and very effective.

    Creatine HSC is a breakthrough supplement with a unique precision “Hyper-Saturation" formula that integrates the absolute latest in creatine research, delivering you the most scientifically advanced creatine formula available to help you build lean muscle and strength faster. Creatine HSC is defining a new era in creatine effectiveness. Creatine HSC will change the way you think about fast muscle growth!

    Creatine HSC Ingredients

    Serving size: 1 Scoop - 44 Grams

    L-Taurine:
    by David Tolson

    Introduction


    Taurine is a conditionally essential amino acid that is the most abundant free amino acid in many tissues. Taurine is different than most other amino acids because it is not incorporated into proteins, but it does play many roles in the body, including bile acid conjugation, detoxification, membrane stabilization, osmoregulation, and modulation of excitatory neurotransmission and intracellular calcium levels. The mean taurine intake in humans is estimated to be around 60 mg daily, but supplementation can far exceed this amount and readily increases taurine levels in many tissues. This article will briefly cover some of the many possible utilities of taurine supplementation.

    Exercise

    Exercise causes a significant reduction of taurine levels in skeletal muscle, as does aging [1-3]. In these conditions, supplemental taurine improves exercise performance and electrical and contractile properties of skeletal muscle in rodents, respectively [1, 3]. In healthy rats, taurine increased running time to exhaustion from 73.8 minutes to 98.8 minutes. Additionally, the weights of the gastrocnemius and soleus muscles were increased, but the difference was not statistically significant [1]. A beverage containing taurine, caffeine, and simple carbs increases endurance performance in humans, and a significant portion of these effects is due to the taurine alone [1, 4]. However, it has not been established if it was due to a synergistic relationship, as taurine-only studies have not yet been conducted in humans. Taurine also counteracts exercise-induced weakness in a mouse model of dystrophy, and is superior to creatine in this regard [5], and it protects muscle tissue from ischemia-reperfusion injury [6]. Among the postulated mechanisms of action are membrane stabilization and modulation of ion channels or calcium ion storage capacity [1, 3-4], although there could be a wide variety of reasons for this effect (such as osmoregulation).

    I hadn't actually registered that about the bile conjugation. With my advanced liver disease and having trouble with producing enough bile that can effectively digest my food without sending me into liver failure with what flour does to me in any great quantity and trying to now use casava and b.b. formulars for my complex carb, that's Good to hear like that.. I'll take that myself :-).

    Thanks.

    Prince, I read the David Tolson article and while it seems very interesting, I'm not sure how much credibility it has...

    Specifically because Taurine is NOT an amino acid, it's an amino sulfonic acid (lacking the carboxyl group needed to be an amino acid).

    That said, I've been taking Taurine in the form of Monster lo-carb energy drinks (2000mg of taurine per can) and haven't encountered any serious negative side effects... I can definitely feel the euphoria brought on by the Ginseng, but this seems to make me more motivated while at the gym.

    Specifically because Taurine is NOT an amino acid, it's an amino sulfonic acid (lacking the carboxyl group needed to be an amino acid).

    That said, I've been taking Taurine in the form of Monster lo-carb energy drinks (2000mg of taurine per can) and haven't encountered any serious negative side effects... I can definitely feel the euphoria brought on by the Ginseng, but this seems to make me more motivated while at the gym.
    It may not be an amino acid, but is still called an Amino in many papers.
