Taurine Boosts Health and Extends Life, Study Shows. Is it true?

 According to the search results, there is evidence that taurine, a nutrient found in meat, fish, and sold as a supplement, extends life and boosts health in a range of animal species

 The levels of taurine decline with age in different species, including humans

.
 However, the research does not offer any proof that taurine supplements can help humans live longer and healthier

.
 

The experiments on middle-aged animals showed that boosting taurine to youthful levels extended life by over 10% and improved physical and brain health

.
 The nutrient also appeared to keep mitochondria, the power stations in the body's cells, functioning

.
 The findings suggest that taurine may be an "elixir of life," but topping up levels in people has not been tested

.
 It is important to note that a singular focus on increasing dietary taurine risks driving poor nutritional choices because plant-rich diets are associated with human health and longevity

.
 Therefore, taurine supplementation with the aim of improving human health and longevity should be approached with caution
