What is Homotaurine?

Homotaurine is similar to taurine but has an extra carbon in its chain offering extra cognitive protection that cannot be achieved with taurine alone. It is a natural compound which is found in seaweed although supplements are also now available.

First and foremost, homotaurine is used in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease because it is thought to decrease the amount of plaque formation in the brain, which is a leading cause of Alzheimer's disease. It is also used as a dietary supplement.

Side effects

On the whole, homotaurine is a safe supplement to take orally. Users may experience some mild side effects such as vomiting and diarrhoea, dizziness, headache and nausea but these are rare. It is not advised to take homotaurine during pregnancy or breastfeeding. There are no known interactions with homotaurine.

How does it work?

Homotaurine has an impact on the brain by interfering with the plaque formations which can lead to the development of Alzheimer's disease. It also works on the blood vessels in the brain, reducing plaque formation.

Benefits

As we get older we start to notice a gradual decline in our cognitive ability. Symptoms such as confusion, problems with the retention of information, forgetfulness and slowing down in the performance of our daily tasks become commonplace.

Studies have shown that homotaurine can have a neuroprotective effect which is thought to slow down this age-related decline. Specifically, the protective effect is thought to be most beneficial in the hippocampus, which is the centre of memory and learning. Studies suggest that homotaurine can reduce brain atrophy buy two thirds in the hippocampus region. This enables people to remember things better and maintain the ability to develop ideas and plan and carry out day-to-day tasks more easily.

For those who needs to maintain excellent focus and motivation, a supplement such as homotaurine, which can slow down the process of mental decline and protect the brain against the impact of aging is truly a gift.
