The name “taurine” comes from the Latin Bos taurus, which means ox, since this amino acid was first isolated from ox bile in 1827.
Research shows that taurine supplementation supports reduced fatigue, less muscle soreness and reduced muscle damage after strenuous exercise.* In some cases, it has even improved runners’ times.*
In fact, a 2021 review of 19 taurine studies confirmed that taurine:*
- Increases the body’s oxygen intake
- Reduces muscle damage
- Increases time to fatigue
- Improves strength and power
- Reduces recovery times

When it was originally discovered in 1820, glycine was named “sugar of gelatin”. A year later, the amino acid was renamed the simpler, “glycine” after the Greek word γλυκύς, meaning "sweet tasting".
While glycine is often used for bone, joint and skin health, some studies have focused on the important role glycine plays in mood and stress support. Glycine has been shown to support the production of serotonin. Some research indicates it may also contribute to improving sleep quality and reducing fatigue.

European elder (nigra, Caprifoliaceae), also known as black elder and elderberry, is a deciduous tree native to Europe, northern Africa and western Asia. The word elder is derived from the Anglo-Saxon word æld, meaning “fire,” because you can start a fire by blowing through its young, hollow branches.
The use of elder as a healing agent dates back to ancient times, according to the writings of Hippocrates (470-410 BC), Pliny the Elder (23-79 AD), and Dioscorides (40-90 AD). Both the elder flower and berry are used for health applications, the most prominent of which is for naturally boosting immunity — but elderberry may also support digestion, a little-known side benefit.*
