You ever here the rumor that taurine is bull semen? Ive been hearing this a lot lately but i dont really believe it.

At the same time I wouldn't really be suprised. I dont even drink energy drinks anyways tho so i guess I'm safe from the bulls semen.

I did a quick check on wiki and didnt come up with anything.

en.wikipedia.org...

So, bull semen in red bull?

Taurine is an amino acid. So while it's likely it might be in bull semen, I doubt that's where they're getting it from.




Taurine acts as a metabolic transmitter and additionally has a detoxifying effect and strengthens cardiac contractility.

oh man, if taurine was bull semen, well, I would have ingested like..... 1 litre of bull semen every 3 days for the past year, thats so much bull semem, almost enough bull semen to make me stop drinking the mass amounts of energy drinks I have every week, but only almost.

If this was true it'd never get past the food & drink regulators.

Some people are just so gullible.

Hey, did you know that women that need hormone replacement therapy are taking a product derived from horse urine. I believe the early birth control pills were also made this way.

There's lots of good products that come from gross places, but I'd never heard that about bull semen. I think that one's bull.


EDIT:


taurine - a colorless crystalline substance obtained from the bile of mammals. A colorless crystalline substance, C2H7NO3S, formed by the hydrolysis of taurocholic acid.

I'm not sure which is worse, semen or bile.

Really? they actually taste good... i dunno if i could bring myself to eat those!

Anyway, bull semen is probably a hot commodody, so im sure its pretty expensive to get. And whats with this rumor of professional athletes making testicle stew to make their hormone levels go up and give them energy, u guys hear about that one?

Taurine was discovered way back in the day in bull bile first. But it's found in most plants and fungi, not to the degree as found in mammalian animals. Taurine can be found mostly in the liver and the intestines. However it's not used for any human consuming industry in it's non sysnthesised form. Kills all of your companies vegan, and vegetarian demographics. so all of the stuff is synthesised. Factories make taurine out of Cysteine,methionine, and vitamin E.

It is found though in bull semen, and urine, and bile, and liver, etc...

Taurine is 2-aminoethanesulfonic acid. While essentially all of the amino acids, hormones, vitamins, etc. were first isolated from animal or vegetable sources, it's almost always far cheaper and more efficient to synthesize them than to bother extracting them from the biological substrate. So, you don't have to worry about turning into a bestial gay if you take taurine.

I handle it by drinking so much, I can pretty much handle any amount of caffiene short of a lethal dose, I have to drink so much because for one, im addicted to no end, and for two, I stay up to late, wake up early, and do a lot of stuff during the day, like school and swimming, though it almost killed me once... heh.
