Taurine, a sulphur-containing, amino acid-like nutrient, is the most abundant free amino acid in the heart and the nervous system. Taurine plays a recognized role in the health of the brain, heart, gallbladder, eyes and the cardiovascular system.*
Taurine facilitates the production of bile by being conjugated to form valuable bile salts which aid the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. Taurine supports liver health by supporting the body’s natural detoxification processes.*
Taurine is an amino acid that is important for many bodily functions, including bile salt formation, eye health, heart function, the development and function of the central nervous system, and the regulation of the immune system and antioxidant function. Although it is often referred to as an amino acid, it lacks a carboxyl group, and is technically an amino sulfonic acid. Here are some general benefits of taurine:
Heart Health: It has been found to be beneficial in managing and preventing various cardiovascular conditions, like hypertension and atherosclerosis.
Nervous System: It plays an essential role in the development and function of the central nervous system.
Bile Salt Formation: Taurine is essential in the formation of bile salts, which play a vital role in digestion.
Eye Health: Taurine is essential for eye health and function, and its deficiency can lead to vision problems.
Immune System Regulation: It plays a role in the proper function of the immune system and has antioxidant properties.
Electrolyte Balance: It helps in maintaining the correct balance of electrolytes within the body.
Mood and Stress Regulation: Some studies suggest that taurine supplementation may have a beneficial effect on mood and stress levels.
There is emerging evidence to suggest that taurine may have anti-aging properties, but the research in this area is not conclusive.
Antioxidant Function: Taurine’s antioxidant properties might play a role in anti-aging by protecting cells from damage caused by free radicals, which are implicated in aging and many chronic diseases.
Mitochondrial Function: Taurine may enhance mitochondrial function, and this is crucial as mitochondrial dysfunction is thought to be a significant factor in aging and age-related diseases.
Anti-inflammatory Effects: Chronic inflammation is thought to be one of the drivers of aging, and taurine has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects.
Neuroprotection: Taurine has been demonstrated to have neuroprotective properties, possibly reducing the risk of neurodegenerative diseases that are associated with aging, such as Alzheimer’s disease.
Lifespan Extension: Some animal studies have shown that taurine supplementation can extend lifespan, but this has yet to be proven in humans.
