    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 nervous system. 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 never 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.

    Suggested Use

    Take 1/4 level teaspoon 1 to 2 times daily with juice or water, preferably between meals.

    Not sure

    Posted by iHerb Customer on Dec 29, 2017 | Verified Purchase

    I bought this product to help me relax before bedtime with a view to achieving better sleep. I believe it does help in that regard, and would likely be helpful to people who are feeling stressed or anxious. I really liked using this product but have suspended using it for now because I was struggling with a strange sort of anger and depression when taking a bit too much. I was using one gram divided morning and night. I am hypothyroid and this product is recommended for people with this condition who are struggling with anxiety and insomnia. I don't know 100% if the taurine was responsible for my strange moods, but since suspending use of it the anger and depression has passed. I have made enquires to a practitioner about whether the taurine was responsible but he didn't know and perhaps I'm just one of those outliers who is affected by this product. The NOW brand seemed a superior quality powder to the one I had previously purchased from a local health food store. Taurine really helps with excessive fluid in the body as well.

    Thanks for your feedback!
