Yet another reason to use taurine
Uric acid is produced naturally in the body, and the body disposes of excess uric acid in the urine.
When there are problems we can have a buildup of excess uric acid in the blood – something called hyperuricemia.
Hyperuricemia can cause gout and kidney damage – there are some indications that it may play a role in diabetes and kidney stones too.
Many people are unaware that they have hyperuricemia…
Unless they have gout and know about the links between gout and elevated uric acid levels in the blood.
And researchers have discovered that a substance called taurine protects the kidneys against high levels of uric acid.
Taurine is found in small amounts in animal foods – probably the best food source of taurine of sea scallop.
But it is also found in energy drinks like Red Bull and it is available as a supplement.
The animal experiments were performed at Shenyang Agricultural University in China. The paper was published in Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications.
Hyperuricemia is linked to a number of different health problems – but the authors of this study were particularly interested in its effect on kidneys.
“Hyperuricemia can lead to direct kidney damage.”
Previous studies had shown that taurine can protect kidneys against harm by numerous different mechanisms.
“Taurine participates in several renal physiological processes and has been shown as a renoprotective agent.”
The authors were investigating the potential ability for taurine to protect the kidneys against harm caused by high levels of uric acid.
“It has been reported that taurine could reduce uric acid levels in diabetic rats, but to date there was no research on the effects of taurine on hyperuricemic rats with kidney injury.”
The researchers carried out their experiments on a number of different groups of rats.
Rats were given substances which made them have high levels of uric acid in the blood.
Some of the hyperuricemic rats were also given supplemental taurine in their drinking water.
“Hyperuricemic rat models were induced and taurine (1% or 2%) were added in the drinking water 7 days in advance for 17 days consecutively.”
The research confirmed that taurine has remarkable protective effects on the kidneys against harms caused by hyperuricemia.
“The results showed that taurine alleviated renal morphological and pathological changes as well as kidney dysfunction in hyperuricemic rats.”
The beneficial effects of taurine in this case may be due to its effect on an enzyme called xanthine oxidase.
Xanthine oxidase is an enzyme which is involved in the production of uric acid.
Taurine normalized elevated levels of the uric acid producing enzyme xanthine oxidase.
‘Taurine could efficiently decrease the elevated xanthine oxidase activities in hyperuricemic rats, indicating its effect on the regulation of uric acid formation.”
The researchers also found that taurine affects uric acid transporters.
“The reabsorption and secretion of uric acid are dependent on a number of urate transporters.”
Taurine may help decrease the excess production of uric acid and get rid of already existing uric acid via effects on uric acid transporters.
“Expressions of three urate transporters were significantly down-regulated in hyperuricemic rats, while taurine prevented the decrease of mRNA and protein expression levels of these urate transporters.”
This and other studies show that taurine can be effective at protecting the body against excess uric acid…
Something which causes kidney damage and gout as well as having a role in kidney stones and probably type II diabetes also.
“The results indicate that taurine might play a role in the regulation of renal uric acid excretion.”
Most meats have a little bit of taurine.
Sea scallops have lots of taurine by whole food standards.
You can also get taurine from energy drinks like Red Bull and it is widely available as a health supplement too.
“Therefore, taurine could be a promising agent for the treatment of hyperuricemia.”
You should always consult your healthcare practitioner for guidance on medical diagnosis and treatment.

Here’s how I naturally raised my testosterone by violating all the rules
There are these rules that exist when it comes to raising testosterone in men…
Most doctors tell you it can only be done through Big Pharma treatments, patches, or expensive procedures.
But that’s just not true.
I found out for myself when I decided to break all the traditional rules of raising testosterone…
And I got my T-levels up past 900 naturally on my own in just a few short weeks.
The doctor was so amazed, he was honestly kind of mad at me for doing it this way, LOL.
But it didn’t stop there…
It’s because of breaking the rules that I now have more than 600,000 daily newsletter subscribers, and an interview with ABC News.
