Taurine a free amino acid found in ample quantities in the heart and nervous system. It acts in the proper functioning of the brain, heart, gallbladder, eyes, and vascular system. When used as a dietary supplement, Taurine is most well known for its heart muscle support.
Cardiovascular Support: Taurine aids in the movement of sodium, potassium, and possibly calcium and magnesium ions into and out of cells. It also stabilizes cell membranes electrically. Taurine sustains healthy cAMP activity, which stimulates essential enzymes in the cardiac muscle, contributing to the muscle’s contractibility.
Detoxification: Taurine is a meaningful component of the bile acids that aid in the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. It detoxifys harmful chemicals, benefiting the body’s chemistry. As a dietary supplement, Taurine aids the formation of taurocholate, which increases cholesterol secretion in the bile and supports the liver in metabolizing fat.
Dietary Taurine is synthetically produced. It is made with hypoallergenic, vegan ingredients, and is certified gluten-free. The ascorbyl palmitate is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil, while the plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose.
