Taurine is designed to provide support for cardiovascular, brain, and gallbladder health and to promote healthy heart contractibility as well as support the body’s natural detoxification process.
Taurine is the most abundant free amino acid in the brain, heart, and nervous system, and plays a critical role in the healthy functioning of the brain, heart, gallbladder, eyes, and vascular system. Taurine facilitates the passage of sodium and potassium into and out of cells and electrically stabilizes cell membranes; maintains healthy cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) activity, which activates important enzymes in the heart muscle and contributes to the muscle’s contractibility; and aids the body’s chemistry to support the normal detoxification process.
Taurine is also an important component of bile acids, which aid in the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. Dietary taurine promotes the formation of taurocholate, a substance which increases cholesterol secretion in the bile and supports fat metabolism in the liver.
Research has found a link between higher taurine levels and significantly lower rates of death from heart disease. Taurine supplements are prescribed for the treatment of congestive heart failure (CHF), high blood pressure, liver disease (hepatitis), high cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia), and cystic fibrosis. Other uses include seizure disorders (epilepsy), autism, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), eye problems (disorders of the retina), diabetes, and alcoholism.
