SUGGESTED USAGE: As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule one or more times daily as recommended by your health care practitioner.
BENEFITS: Protocol For Life Balance Taurine is a free-form amino acid that participates in a variety of metabolic processes. It is involved in bile acid conjugation, detoxification, neuromodulation and membrane stabilization, as well as acting as an antioxidant. Taurine is present in relatively high concentrations in the retina, where it helps protect the eye from oxidant damage. Although Taurine can be produced by the body, it nevertheless is sometimes considered to be a conditionally essential nutrient.*

Taurine is an amino acid found in particularly high concentrations in the white blood cells,skeletal muscle, central nervous system, as well as the heart muscle.

In nature, Taurine is typically found in foods from many animal sources.
Taurine is a key ingredient of bile, which in turn is needed for fat digestion, absorption offat-soluble nutrients, detoxification, and the metabolism of cholesterol. Taurines role in theproduction of cellular antioxidants such as glutathione is well recognized. It is also importantfor the modulation of cellular calcium levels and, through this and other mechanisms, iscritical for heart health. In addition, Taurine functions as a neurotransmitter, supporting properneurological and electrical activity in the brain and other tissues.*
Taurine does not polarize light, which means that it does not come in L- or D isomers, suchas L-Taurine. There is only one form of Taurine.
