Pure HPLC certified Free Form L-Taurine
What is L-Taurine?
Taurine, also known as 2-aminoethanesulfonic acid, is a nonessential amino acid. It is the most abundant free amino acid in many tissues and is manufactured by other amino acids such as cysteine, vitamin B6 and methionin. Taurine is particularly high in foods such as milk, eggs, meat and fish. In newborns, taurine is essential as they cannot make it. Furthermore, it is different from most other amino acids in that it is not incorporated into proteins. It is more heavily concentrated in heart tissues and the brain.
Individuals who are at risk for a deficiency of L-Taurine, include vegetarians and women of all ages. It is believed that women are more at risk for a L-Taurine deficiency, because of the presence of female hormones that restrict the production of L-Taurine within the body.
Vegetarians tend to be at risk for lower levels of L-Taurine because it is commonly found in food sources, such as meat and dairy products, which are not included in the vegetarian diet
Benefits of L-Taurine
L-Taurine may lessen the impact to the liver in people that drink large amounts of alcohol
L-Taurine is an abundant amino acid present in striated muscles. It appears to act much like creatine in that it expands the cells by helping the muscle cell hold more water. This may result in higher rates of protein synthesis and increase muscle fullness
One of the benefits that have been associated with L-Taurine, is a reduction of heart disease risk. This is thought to be due to the fact that L-Taurine is responsible for maintaining a normal output of potassium from the heart muscles.
L-Taurine also works to break down fat within the body by producing bile. It is also thought that L-Taurine may have benefits for individuals who suffer from diabetes because this amino acid can affect the body’s sugar levels and need for insulin.
Further uses of L-Taurine that have been suggested to help with depression, cirrhosis, low sperm count, and low sperm motility, as well as control of high blood pressure.
