    Does taurine really help relieve migaines? If so, how much do you need to take?  Does drinking Red Bull give the right amount of taurine to help?

    Hi Cat Lover,

     

    Taurine is an amino acid naturally found throughout the body and I'm not aware of any studies that find taurine helpful in Migraine treatment.  

     

    Good luck

    The book sounds interesting. Will have to take a look at it. However, before anyone adds taurine or any other supplement, PLEASE be sure to talk with your doctor. Supplements can have side effects and reasons why some people shouldn't use them, just like prescription medications do. Please take a look at Supplements for Migraine - They ARE Drugs.

    Hi -

    Please go to your library and check out the book "The Brain Trust Program" by Dr. Larry McCleary.  He's a brain surgeon who is interested in supplementation to help the brain...there's] a good section on migraines in there, and he discusses how to supplement.  He recommends 1 gram of taurine twice a day, but there are other supplements for migraines that are equally important.  I wouldn't take it with Red Bull, as he recommends you stay away from caffeine.
