Taurine is a nonprotein amino acid that results from cysteine and hypotaurine combining. Taurine can also be supplied to the body through meat and fish. Taurine demonstrates antioxidant and detoxification activity among other roles. Taurine is involved in the creation of taurine bile acid conjugates in the liver, which help with fat absorption and the production of micelle. Taurine also influences the development of the central nervous system and visual system, from before birth. There is also some evidence of Taurine supporting cell membrane stabilization.
