I suppose that the taurine supplementation is recommended because taurine water preserved cognition in mice. As I recall, cats can't synthesize it (not sure about mice), but humans can: "The major route for the biosynthesis of taurine, shown in Figure 1B is from methionine and cysteine via cysteinesulfinic acid decarboxylase (CSD), and typically requires oxidation of hypotaurine to taurine as the final step"

 

https://www.ncbi.nlm...cles/PMC3501277

 

This might explain why it hasn't done anything discernable for me, over tens of 8g doses. Of course I also realize that supplementing it might still have value if the synthesis is insufficient, or if the benefits accrue subtly over months. I've tried dissolving it in water, which is next to impossible, and also olive oil. For that matter, I tried it on low carb as well as low protein. Nothing to report.

 

 

I haven't had any problem. Taurine is readily soluble @ about 65 grams/L. Compare that to the most soluble amino acid (glycine @ 250 grams/L) and the least soluble (tyrosine @ .5 grams/L).

I have also had zero issues dissolving Taurine in water.

Then I wonder what I'm actually consuming. I have 1g taurine pills from Now. I open up 8 of them into a 700 mL water bottle and shake like hell. Barely dissolves at all. Maybe that's because it's partially crystalized or something?

 

As to benefits, it did nothing discernable for me on keto or low-carb. But I've been taking it again, after months of break, on my current low-protein regime. I've had a very good couple of days, cognitively speaking. However, I've changed some other things as well, so it's way to early to say that it's now beneficial because my dietary taurine intake is now much lower. (This should be irrelevant if, as I said, we can synthesize what we need. But perhaps synthesis is inefficient or limited, such that supplementation still matters.)

It may be the stearic acid present in the capsule that hampers dissolvability.  Purchase unencapsulated taurine powder and give that a try.
