Taurine helps to improve performance by synergising muscle contraction thus power
Taurine also appears to be essential for normal contraction of skeletal muscle
Osmo-regulatory activity of Taurine: heart and muscle Cells do not tolerate extreme alterations in cell size, therefore, they possess volume regulatory mechanisms to counteract the consequences of osmotic stress and normalize cell volume. Changes in taurine uptake and release contribute to the normalization of cell volume in most cell types. In the case of heart and muscle the turnover of taurine is normally very slow. Yet myocyte taurine content can be dramatically altered by changes in osmotic stress.
Using a skinned fiber preparation containing permeabilized cell membrane, Steele et al. and Galler et al. provided the first evidence that physiological concentrations of taurine can increase Ca2+ sensitivity of contractile proteins and alter tension development. These effects of taurine were attributed to the modulation of sarcoplasmic reticular Ca2+ release, with the effect greater in preparations containing Ca2+ deficient sarcoplasmic reticulum, but less when the sarcoplasmic reticulum contain a high Ca2+ load. In contrast, acute taurine elevations exert no apparent effect on Ca2+ uptake by enriched sarcoplasmic reticular preparations. However, the acute taurine studies do not rule out a role of the sarcoplasmic reticular Ca2+ pump in the chronic actions of taurine. Indeed, in vivo chronic taurine influences the activity of the sarcoplasmic reticular Ca2+ ATPase through at least two factors that are altered by taurine.
First, recent evidence reveals that the phosphorylation of the sarcoplasmic reticular phosphoprotein, phospholamban is reduced in the taurine deficient heart. Because the phosphorylation of phospholamban enhances the rate of Ca2+ uptake by the sarcoplasmic reticulum, it increases the rate of myocardial relaxation. Second, there is an extensive literature touting the “antioxidant” activity of taurine. According to Park et al. the activity of the sarcoplasmic reticular Ca2+ ATPase is inhibited by oxidative stress. It is known that sarcoplasmic reticular Ca2+ uptake and Ca2+-induced Ca2+ release play key roles in regulating [Ca2+]i and modulating Ca2+ delivery and removal from the muscle proteins. Moreover, the binding of Ca2+ to troponin determines the response of the muscle proteins to elevated [Ca2+]i. Therefore, it is not surprising that taurine is required for normal systolic and in diastolic function.
Taurine also appears to be essential for normal contraction of skeletal muscle. Warskulat et al. found that skeletal muscle function is severely impaired in taurine transporter knockout mice. Interestingly, physical exercise decreases taurine levels of skeletal muscle, an effect partially prevented by taurine administration.Administration of taurine also improves physical endurance. In accordance with the actions of taurine in the heart, Bakker and Berg reported that the effects

How to use : GTC is ideal support before and during exercise. You can take it 15 min prior to exercise for protect your body from catabolism and pump more power to your muscles. In case of long bouts of exercise when you feel low, you can take GCT to improve your recovery and get muscles refilled.
Warning: Consult your dietician for optimum uses, do not exceed recommended dose. All claims are based on various studies and data available on internet, books & journals and not verified by any authority, or FSSAI.
GCT Combo - Glutamine + Creatine + Taurine with Polysacchrides
Protection Power Performance
GTC is perfect blend of important nutrients that protects from muscle catabolism; maintain energy level for long lasting exercise and boost contractile power of muscles thus ensure best performance.
Scientific formulation of GCT contains well balanced blend of Glutamine, Creatine and Taurine with complex carbohydrate. The ideal formulation of GCT sustains your performance incrase power and protects your muscles. GCT is ideal supplement to protect from over training syndrome (OTS) which is result of high intensity exercise or training. Over training can leads to serious medical problems and can keep you out of exercise or training. Over training is main culprit for poor performance. GCT helps you to overcome over training syndrome as glutamine protects your muscles as well as improves immunity, creatine alongwith polymer glucose helps in faster recovery and taurine helps to maintain contractile ability of muscles thus you are ready for next bout of your training.
Possible Health Benefits
Why GCT is useful for Protection of muscles from catabolism
How creatine helps to improve power
Power is result of force of muscle contraction which is energy dependent. Creatine plays vital role in energy release thus helps to increase force of contraction so more power.
How creatine helps in exercise and recovery
Exercise results in high demand of ATP which rapidly depleted and gives ADP and give required energy to muscle contraction
Exercise: ATP ---(ATPase)---> ADP + Pi
High energy demand leads to depletion of ATP in muscle cell and creatine comes in metabolism to give energy for muscle contraction thus creatine depletes from cells
Exercise: PCr + ADP + H + ---(CK)--->Cr + ATP
Creatine, in the form of PCr, is essential for replenishing ATP stores that are used immediately during high-intensity exercise & PCr is depleted very quickly. During recovery period if creatine is available in diet, faster creatine replenishment ensure faster recovery.
Recovery: PCr + ADP + H + <---(CK)---Cr + ATP
Studies have shown that prior creatine loading enhances glycogen storage and carbohydrate loading in a trained muscle, new research has shown that creatine can help buffer lactic acid that builds-up in the muscles during exercise and helps in faster recovery
