Taurine is a conditionally essential sulfur amino acid, necessary for proper human development, with many functions including the cardiovascular system, neurological health and antioxidant properties.
Taurine can support:
Regulating the calcium/magnesium flux in the heart and preventing loss of potassium in this vital organ
Antioxidant protection against toxic damage to cells.
Neonatal and human development
Modulation of neuronal excitability, and neurotransmitter and hormone release
Epileptics who have deficiencies of Taurine
Bile metabolism and other liver functions
Eye function, including retinal health
Serving Size: 1 Capsule Servings per Container: 100
Other Ingredients:Gelatin, microcrystalline cellulose, and magnesium stearate. Certified free of: Starch, corn, milk, wheat, yeast, sugar, eggs, salt, soy, gluten-free, artificial colors, binders, flavors, preservatives, fish derivatives, no animal product.
Directions: Take 1-3 capsules per day or as needed, with a full glass of water, fruit, or vegetable juice. Do not take with hot fluids or dairy products. Vitamins and minerals are necessary to help metabolize and work synergistically with Taurine, especially B-6 and zinc. For seizure disorders, including Gaba may also be considered in a supplemental program.
If you are pregnant or nursing consult your healthcare practitioner before use.
Do not refrigerate. Keep out of reach of children. Keep in cool, dry place.
WHAT IS TAURINE? Taurine is a sulfur amino acid that was originally named so, since it was first isolated in the bile of an ox (Taurus). Present in high concentrations in mammals, it is a conditionally essential amino acid in humans (and in cats) with many functions, although it does not enter into protein synthesis. It is necessary in proper neonatal, infant and child development, and deficiencies in developmental stages may be the cause of epilepsy, poor eyesight and other problems. Taurine is found in animal proteins, primarily in meat and milk (and especially high in human nursing mother's milk). Because it is so important for human development, some baby formulas are enriched with Taurine. It is synthesized from Methionine and Cysteine, and Vitamin B-6 is necessary for proper metabolism, however, infants have a limited capacity to synthesize Taurine. A Pyridoxal 5'Phosphate (active B-6) deficiency decreases the amount synthesized and can cause low levels of Taurine. Zinc is also essential, and a zinc deficiency is associated with an increased excretion of Taurine. They also work synergistically as antioxidants to protect cell membranes from free radical/ toxic damage. A deficiency of both may impair eyesight and low levels have been noted in epileptics. Since Taurine is not available in vegetable proteins, strict vegetarians-may be low in this important amino acid.
