What is Taurine?
Taurine is a non-essential amino acid that is found in large amounts in the heart and brain. Taurine is considered non-essential because it can be synthesised from the amino acids cysteine and methionine. Taurine can also be sourced from the diet in foods including meat and fish. This amino acid plays a very important role in the body; it supports neurological development and helps the body regulate levels of water and minerals in the blood. Taurine also plays a role in helping keep the brain, eyes, heart and capsular system healthy. As well as this, taurine is believed to have antioxidant properties which help the body fight free radicles.
