The human body produces the amino acid taurine, which is also found in several food and has been shown to slow down the ageing process in mice and monkeys. According to a recent study, the semi-essential amino acid taurine can delay ageing.

Despite the fact that the element is common in humans, the study was conducted on animals, and it was found to be connected to physiological changes.
The body makes taurine, which is also found in some meals like fish, dairy products, and meat. Lead author Vijay Yadav, an assistant professor of genetics and development at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons in the US, reported his findings in the journal Science.

He claimed that giving taurine to mice and monkeys externally delayed ageing and improved their health.

According to the scientists, taurin supplementation reduced several important signs of ageing, including increased DNA damage, DNA damage growth, telomerase deficiency, poor mitochondrial function, and cellular senescence.

The researchers discovered that taurine supplements improved the average longevity of male and female mice by 10% and 14%, respectively (seven to eight human years), after a year of research on mice given the supplements.
