Other FormsTaurine Powder
Taurine (2-Aminoethane sulfonic acid) is considered a non-protein amino acid. Taurine is nonessential, as the body has the ability to produce Taurine from cysteine and hypotaurine. Taurine has been found to support the cardiovascular system, liver and brain as well as to maintain cell membrane stability. Taurine is crucial to a healthy body. It can be found in high amounts in meat and fish. Large amounts of taurine can be found in the body - specifically in the brain, retina, heart, and platelets. Taurine is involved in a variety of functions such as retinal photoreceptor activity, bile acid conjugation, white blood cell antioxidant activity, central nervous system neuromodulation, platelet aggregation, cardiac contractility, growth, insulin activity, and osmoregulation.
Taurine functions also as an inhibitory amino acid in the nervous system. Taurine may help improve sleep and calmness.
