Taurine slows aging, study finds

Taurine, a sulfur-containing amino acid, has been linked to healthy aging. Research has shown that taurine levels decline with age in mice, monkeys, and humans, and a reversal of this decline through taurine supplementation has been associated with increased health span and, in some cases, increased life span.

Mechanistically, taurine has been found to reduce cellular senescence, protect against telomerase deficiency, suppress mitochondrial dysfunction, decrease DNA damage, and attenuate inflammaging. Lower taurine concentrations have been correlated with several age-related diseases in humans, and taurine concentrations have been observed to increase after acute endurance exercise. Therefore, taurine deficiency may be a driver of aging, and clinical trials in humans seem warranted to further investigate its potential role in aging.

For more detailed information, you can refer to the following research article: "Functional Role of Taurine in Aging and Cardiovascular Health: An Updated Overview" published in Nutrients on September 30, 2023.
