An amino acid that helps with metabolizing lipids, Taurine supports and maintains healthy heart function. This variety is the double strangth, for an extra boost of heart health. Taurine is a conditionally essential amino acid that is not utilized for
protein synthesis, but is mainly found free in most tissues, especially
throughout the heart and nervous system.
Taurine is important in
several metabolic processes of the body, including stabilizing cell
membranes in electrically active tissues, such as the brain and heart.
It functions in tissues by stabilizing cell membranes and aiding the
transport of potassium, sodium, calcium and magnesium in and out of
cells. Taurine helps to generate and regulate nerve impulses and
supports the maintenance of normal fluid balance; it is also used by the
body in visual pathways, as well as in the brain and nervous system,
where it works together with glycine and GABA as a neurotransmitter.
