Rather than resorting to conventional caffeine for help getting going in the morning, some are turning to an energetic taurine product. While taurine is most commonly used in different energy drinks in North America, a Russian oral health brand recently released a taurine toothpaste so people can get a boost first thing. ROCS released their energy line recently for people who care about dental health, but are not necessarily morning people.
The ROCS Energy toothpaste contains small amounts of the taurine product and it is ingested differently than food or beverages. But the disputed health effects of taurine could be a barrier for some consumers, despite its use in a wide range of other energy products (including cosmetics). Perhaps only using it occasionally rather than every day twice a day would be wise.
