Taurine is a significant amino acid predominantly found in our brain, retina, heart, and reproductive cells.
It's vital for numerous biological processes, such as detoxification, bile acid formation, energy production, and membrane stabilisation.
Since it cannot be obtained from plant sources, supplementation can be particularly beneficial for vegetarians, vegans, and those with certain dietary restrictions.
Our supplement provides 1000mg of free-form Taurine in a cellulose capsule. It is gluten-, soy-, dairy-free, and egg-free, making it a suitable addition to various dietary regimes.
The need to know
What are the benefits?
Digestion and nutrient absorption
Essential for normal bile salts and absorption of nutrients
Regulates immune system, CNS and eyes
Good for maintaining fluids and electrolyte balance
Taurine plays a crucial role in maintaining normal hydration and electrolyte balance and supporting the central nervous system (CNS) and eyes.
It's fundamental in balancing neurotransmitters like glutamate and GABA in the brain, which are pivotal to neural communication and brain function.
Furthermore, Taurine helps expedite the metabolism and excretion of harmful by-products, including acetyl alcohol, a toxic by-product of alcohol metabolism, thus offering protective effects.
