Everything you need to know about Magnesium Taurate

  • 3 min read

Magnesium Taurate is a combination of magnesium and taurine. This exceptional compound is one of the most popular forms of magnesium to help support a healthy heart, calmness, sleep and  joint and muscle assistance.*

What is Magnesium Taurate?

Magnesium is a vital mineral involved in over 300 biochemical reactions in the body. These reactions include critical processes such as:

  • Muscle and Nerve Function: Magnesium is essential for the proper functioning of muscles and nerves. It helps support muscle contractions and nerve impulses, while helping to curb cramps and spasms.*

  • Blood Glucose Control: Magnesium has been said to play a role in supporting blood sugar levels.*

  • Bone Health: Magnesium supports bone formation and may help influence the activity of osteoblasts and osteoclasts, the cells responsible for building and breaking down bone.*

Taurine, on the other hand, is an amino acid with several important functions in the body:

  • Neurological Development: Taurine has been said to  support neurotransmitter activity and assist the  cell membrane.*

  • Regulation of Water and Mineral Salts: Taurine has been said to provide support to  electrolytes, which is crucial for proper hydration and the function of various processes.


When these two substances are combined, Magnesium Taurate is formed with a view of supporting magnesium’s absorption. The main purpose of this combination is to make sure that this mineral gets into the bloodstream to achieve its ultimate goal by acting as a transport medium for magnesium into cells where it is needed most. Moreover, combining this compound may assist with the bioavailability of magnesium, but it also takes advantage of taurine’s synergy with magnesium for added support.


How Can Magnesium Taurate Support You?

Heart Health*

Magnesium Taurate is particularly noted for its potential to support cardiovascular health.* Research suggests that magnesium may play a critical role in supporting heart rhythms. Taurine has also been shown to help with heart function by supporting blood pressure and lipid profiles. Together, they may provide a synergistic effect that supports overall heart health (DiNicolantonio, et al., 2018).


Calming Effects and Sleep*

Magnesium and taurine have both been linked to supporting relaxation.* Magnesium helps in the regulation of neurotransmitters that transmit impulses throughout the nervous system and brain. Taurine is said to help with calming, which may bring about relaxation. “When combined together as Magnesium Taurate, they enhance these effects making it a useful supplement for people with stress and sleep problems” (Abbasi et al., 2012).


Joint and Muscle Support*

Magnesium is essential for muscle function and may help with cramps. Taurine has been said to support muscles by aiding in muscle contraction. Thus, Magnesium Taurate may be of interest for those looking to assist joint and muscle health, whether due to physical activity, or other factors (Brilla & Haley, 1992).
