Taurine causes nerve pain issues. Niacinamide heals. What's the mechanism??

Hi guys,

I discussed in a previous post that my taurine experimentation started causing nerve issues. After daily supplementation of about 2-4g I eventually start getting sciatic nerve pain, which actually turned out to be quite bothersome.

I was worried that it might be irreversible but I found that Niacinamide completely healed the issue and it's completely cleared up.

Does anyone have any ideas what the mechanism could be that's going on here??

What could taurine be increasing or depleting which Niacinamide somehow makes up for??

Watching thread in case anyone has ideas because I'm interested in learning the mechanism behind this too.

If I had to guess maybe taurine is increasing phosphate and niacinamide is lowering phosphate. But that is completely a guess, very good chance that that's totally off.

Another guess is that taurine is somehow raising lactate and niacinamide is lowering lactate?

Taurine might also somehow be lowering NAD/NADH ratio by increasing NADH and niacinamide replenishes NAD.

I don't know if any of those guesses are helpful. Lol sorry.

I take taurine on and off, between 4 and 15g (!!) for about 15-20 years, and never felt any pain from it.
On the contrary, it was the very only thing who could make me avoid tetany and bad cramping the night after after heavy squat sessions...
And it normalizes noticeably heart beat quicker after trainings, also

Taurine is good.stuff, albeit has a chance to up the prolactin.

On and off. Not on a regular basis. But the 1st times I looked for taurine, I had to order from USA, as it wasn’t easily available anywhere in my country, and even in Europe...

i don’t see specially any anti aging effect, but I take many other things, so I can’t say taurine is really effective for this. I think I look much better than the other men of my age (54) so maybe it counts in some way...

taurine is certainly the supplement I take for the longest duration, also with vit.D maybe.
