Taurine is a conditionally essential, sulfur-containing amino acid found in the tissues of most animal species. It is not incorporated into proteins, but is found free in many tissues. Taurine is involved in a number of physiological processes, including bile acid formation for fat digestion, fluid regulation, detoxification of environmental toxins, regulation of cellular calcium, and regulation of nerve excitability. The liver combines bile acids with taurine, which results in increased cholesterol solubility and excretion. Individuals who are taurine deficient may be more susceptible to tissue damage from environmental pollutants such as aldehydes, chlorine, and amines.
Taurine is the most abundant amino acid in the heart. Taurine has been shown to improve nitric oxide production in the vascular endothelium, which is essential to optimal blood flow, maintaining already normal blood pressure, and overall cardiovascular functioning. Taurine acts as an antioxidant as well, inhibiting LDL cholesterol oxidation.

I love the Thorne products as they are excipient free. Taurine is great for thyroid health and energy
I had no idea how important taurine levels were to the health of your heart. My naturopath Dr. recommended your brand and I feel relaxed knowing I'm taking such a high quality supplement.

Absolutely discusting service from iHerb. I received this product without best before date. Any contacts with customer services was ignored.

Taking it because I have a gallstone and I have read it helps. So far I have not taken enough to know if it helps. I also keep forgetting to take it.
Pure, high absorption, no digestive disturbances.

I usually buy liquid Taurine (alcohol-free) and they seem aggravate my intestinal Candida a bit, but this product doesn't. It's also the purest I've found and the most absorb-able.

Great for overstimulated neurons

I have taken taurine for years along with magnesium since I had unexplained gran mal seizures. I take it every single day 1 capsule at bedtime and sometimes in the morning and have been seizure free since This is a great brand because it has no added unnecessary ingredients.
