Taurine is a sulfur-containing amino acid that acts as a neurotransmitter, has antioxidant properties and is needed for proper bilary function. Taurine is abundant in the tissues of the central nervous system and plays a calming role as a neurotransmitter by counteracting the stimulatory effect of glutamate.
Taurine has a very important antioxidant function in white blood cells, leukocytes and lymphocytes. These cells are important in protecting the body from foreign substances and invading organisms.
Taurine is needed to form a key component of bile, taurocholic acid. Proper bile formation is very necessary for the absorption of essential lipids from the digestive tract. Bile forms water-oil emulsions of dietary lipids, allowing for the absorption of the fat soluble vitamins, A, D, E, and K, as well as essential fatty acids.**
