Although found throughout the body the largest concentrations of taurine are in the heart and muscle. Clinical studies indicate it may be beneficial to people with congestive heart failure & liver disease. Taurine also supports the central nervous system.

Taurine is a conditionally essential, sulfur-containing amino acid produced from cysteine by the body. It is found abundantly in the body, particularly throughout the excitable tissues of the central nervous system, where it is thought to have a regulating influence.170 Taurine can promote optimal blood flow to nervous tissue. It also appears to play an important role in many physiological processes, such as osmoregulation, immunomodulation and bile salt formation.171 Recent studies suggested that taurine might have neuro- and cardioprotective properties and provide protection against oxidative stress.171-174 Taurine is also critical for maintaining cardiac health in certain aging individuals. Dietary taurine may help maintain healthy liver function.175 However, it is deficient in many diets.176-182

Taurine is responsible for several biological functions in the body.5 It helps to fend off cardiomyopathy and is an antioxidant.1 A recent study found that damage to the liver from alcohol consumption may be able to be prevented and reversed by taurine supplementation.2 Scientists have found that it also may support the development and regeneration of the central nervous system. The results of another study showed taurine to help with regeneration of the optic nerve.3 Another human study showed dramatic improvement for patients with congestive heart failure. 86% of the patients that were designated as New York Heart Association functional class III or IV dropped to a class II after treatment with taurine.4

Taurine may also:

  • Protect against ischemia reperfusion5
  • Modulate intracellular calcium5
  • Regulate oxidative stress1
  • Protect against hardening of the arteries5
  • Lower blood pressure5
  • Support inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis6
