How L-Taurine Works

L-Taurine is from the Douglas Labs Amino Acids product line.

Taurine is one of the most abundant free amino acids in the body and it is very important in metabolism, being present in particularly high levels in the brain, skeletal muscle, heart, and retina of the eye.

Taurine is regarded as a conditionally-essential amino acid, because it can be synthesized by the body from the other sulfur-containing amino acids cysteine and methionine. Taurine synthesis is vitamin B6 dependent. Taurine is importingl for infants where it plays important roles in the development of the nervous system, retina, and muscle tissue.

Taurine is well known for its role in bile salt synthesis and has crucial functions in the liver's detoxification pathways. Taurine also appears to have a stabilizing effect on cell membranes and is important in supporting normal extra- and intracellular distribution of calcium. This in turn has implications on neuronal excitability and the regulation of osmotic pressure. In the retina, taurine helps support the structure and function of the visual cells. In the diet, taurine is found in meat and fish, but not in plant foods. Strict vegetarians, especially those with low cysteine.
