Effects of taurine supplementation following eccentric exercise in young adults

Publication: Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism
25 June 2013


The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effects of taurine supplementation on muscle performance, oxidative stress, and inflammation response after eccentric exercise (EE) in males. Twenty-one participants (mean age, 21 ± 6 years; weight, 78.2 ± 5 kg; height, 176 ± 7 cm) were selected and randomly divided into two groups: placebo (n = 10) and taurine (n = 11). Fourteen days after starting supplementation, subjects performed EE (3 sets until exhaustion, with EE of the elbow flexors on the Scott bench, 80% 1 repetition maximum (RM)). Blood samples were collected and muscle performance was measured on days 1, 14, 16, 18, and 21 after starting the supplements. Then, performance, muscle damage, oxidative stress, and inflammatory markers were analyzed. The taurine supplementation resulted in increased strength levels and thiol total content and decreased muscle soreness, lactate dehydrogenase level, creatine kinase activity, and oxidative damage (xylenol and protein carbonyl). Antioxidant enzymes (superoxide dismutase, catalase, and gluthatione peroxidase) and inflammatory markers (tumor necrosis factor, interleukin-1β (IL-1β), and interleukin-10 (IL-10)) were not altered during the recovery period compared with the placebo group. The results suggest that taurine supplementation represents an important factor in improving performance and decreasing muscle damage and oxidative stress but does not decrease the inflammatory response after EE.


Cette étude se propose d’examiner les effets de la supplémentation en taurine sur la performance musculaire, le stress oxydatif et la réponse inflammatoire à la suite d’un exercice pliométrique chez des hommes. On répartit aléatoirement une sélection de 21 hommes (21 ± 6 ans, 78,2 ± 5 kg, 176 ± 7 cm) dans deux groupes : placebo (n = 10) et taurine (n = 11). Quatorze jours après le début de la supplémentation, les sujets effectuent sur un banc Scott trois séries d’exercices pliométriques des fléchisseurs du coude (80 % 1 RM) jusqu’à épuisement. On prélève des échantillons sanguins et on évalue la performance musculaire aux jours 1, 14, 16, 18 et 21 suivant le début de la supplémentation. Puis on analyse la performance, les lésions musculaires, le stress oxydatif et les marqueurs de l’inflammation. La supplémentation en taurine suscite une augmentation de la force et du contenu total en thiol ainsi qu’une diminution de la douleur musculaire, de la concentration de lactate déshydrogénase, de l’activité de la créatine kinase et des lésions oxydatives (xylénol et protéine carbonylée). Pendant la période de récupération, on n’observe dans les groupes supplémentés aucune modification de l’activité des enzymes antioxydantes (superoxyde dismutase, catalase et glutathion peroxydase) et des marqueurs de l’inflammation (facteur de nécrose tumorale, interleukine-1β (IL-1β) et interleukine-10 (IL-10)) comparativement au groupe placebo. D’après ces observations, la supplémentation en taurine constitue un moyen important pour améliorer la performance et diminuer les lésions musculaires et le stress oxydatif, mais elle ne diminue pas la réponse inflammatoire consécutive à un exercice pliométrique.
