Taurine is the most abundant free amino acid in the human body, which can kill cells, stabilize cell membranes, inhibit lipid peroxidation damage, eliminate oxygen free radicals, regulate cell osmotic pressure and stabilize intracellular calcium. There are mechanisms to protect cardiomyocytes, such as maintenance mechanisms. This article mainly studies the protective effect of taurine on myocardial mitochondria of exhausted mice. In the experiment, the rats were randomly divided into two groups, one group was the control group, and the other group was the exercise exhaustion group (n=7). An animal experiment platform was used to create a model of exhaustion of rats. After exhaustion, the rats were immediately selected for experiments. The serum substance content of each group was measured, and the enzyme was used for immunosorbent experiment. The results showed that the taurine group had a heart rate of 359 and the control group had a heart rate of 372, indicating that taurine has a certain protective effect on rat myocardium. The experimental results show that taurine plays a significant protective role in myocardial mitochondria of exercise-exhausted rats, improves cardiac contractile function, and reduces heart rate variability caused by insufficient resistance exercise.
