For years, scientists believed brain shrinkage was inevitable and irreversible. Cutting-edge research has shown that brain cells can regenerate. An amino acid called taurine plays an important role in creating new brain cells. Researchers found that taurine increased the growth of brain cells by activating “sleeping” stem cells. Taurine also increased the survival of new neurons, resulting in an increase in adult brain cell creation.1-3 Read …
