Be Careful With This If You Have Candida

Posted by iHerb Customer on Apr 18, 2009 | Verified Purchase

The product quality itself seems excellent. However, if you have Candida you need to be aware that taurine appears to feed it quite strongly. I follow a very strict anti-candida diet and introduce new supplements one at a time in order to clearly see any effects. After taking this product for approx 1 week started noticing a marked deterioration in my candida, and all the unpleasantness associated with it. I was taking 150mg twice daily (I buy the empty Vcaps from NOW and use a milligram scale to weigh my powders). I would not have believed that taking a single amino acid would aggrivate candida like that if I hadnt experienced it. The effect was as strong as eating small amounts of sugar for me. After taking the product for about 2 weeks I had to discontinue use, and with Google's help discovered that taurine is in fact not recommended for those with Candida. It's unfortunate because otherwise I was noticing some definite advantages from taurine intake (improved sleep and bile flow). Now that I have cleared that recent Candida load, I may experiment with putting a small amount under my tongue, rather than swallowing it. I hope this information is helpful, life is full of dietary land mines when you have candida.

Now Foods, Taurine Powder

Science now shows that the amino acid taurine is a helpful tool in supporting the production of insulin and insulin sensitivity – two major issues for any person seeking solutions for blood sugar issues. Generally taurine is thought of as a relaxing nutrient due to its function within your nervous system. It is also a general tonic to your heart. In an animal model that allows for detailed analysis of the effects of taurine supplementation it was shown that taurine helped the pancreas produce insulin, improved the expression of genes needed for the metabolism of ingested glucose, and helped insulin receptors in muscles and the liver work better. This is a profound array of support for improved blood sugar metabolism.

Not sure

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.

This is a most important ingredient called for in the vet's recipe for raw cat food. When I get my kitties I will be using this product to make the homemade raw cat food. I did receive the product promptly. Thank you

Purchased this for my cats. We make their food and need taurine to be added to it. It is easy to add as we feed them.
