New Australian research shows that taurine (yep, the stuff that’s in Red Bull) improves symptoms in young people suffering a first episode of psychosis.

Taurine is an amino acid naturally occurring in the body that has various functions, including aiding the function of the cardiovascular system. It inhibits chemical regulation in the nervous system, and also protects the path of neurons in the brain, as well as being involved in development of the nervous system.

For all these reasons, it was chosen as an interesting substance to study for potential treatment of psychosis. In this new study, the researchers analysed the effect of using taurine as a supplement to improve both symptoms and mental awareness in patients with their first episode of psychosis (FEP).

It is interesting though, because it is a stimulant as opposed to a sedative, which most treatments are for psychosis.

So for example, if you have insomnia sleep deprivation induced psychosis. This is going to make it worse.
