L-Taurine 600mg - 180 capsules
Taurine CapsulesEach capsule provides 600mg of Taurine.
Sulphur-Containing Amino AcidL-taurine is a free amino acid not incorporated into proteins but is abundant in many tissues, including the eyes, heart, brain, nerve cells and skeletal muscle.
Support for Eye HealthL-taurine is found in high levels in the retina and offers protection against macular degeneration and other eye conditions.
Heart Health BenefitsL-taurine plays a vital role in overall cardiovascular health and may benefit those with heart disease, atherosclerosis, atrial fibrillation plus blood pressure and cholesterol issues.
Taurine is an amino acid that occurs naturally in the body. Unlike other amino acids, it is not used to build proteins. Instead, it is classed as a conditionally essential amino acid and is particularly concentrated in the eyes, heart, brain, nerves and muscles.
Our bodies can convert taurine from other amino acids - methionine and cysteine – plus it is found in foods such as meat and fish. However, the biosynthesis of taurine may not always be efficient. It relies on B6 as a co-factor, and a B6 deficiency may impair taurine synthesis.
Taurine has been shown to have several health benefits, so supplementation is an essential option for many people.
Eye Health – Taurine is the most abundant amino acid in the retina (back of the eye) and can help retinal and optic nerve degradation. Its protective benefits are associated with a reduction in retinal oxidative stress. It is thought to protect against damage from UV light and toxic substances. It may help conditions such as macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy.
Heart Health – Research links higher taurine levels to improved outcomes for heart disease, including conditions such as cardiomyopathy and atherosclerosis. It is reported to be helpful in the cases of atrial fibrillation due to its anti-arrhythmia properties. Research also shows its benefits for blood pressure and cholesterol balance.
Brain Health – Taurine may work to promote long-term memory and cognitive abilities. As it declines with age, taurine may be a valuable supplement to help ward off certain age-related neurodegenerative conditions.
Digestive and Gallbladder Health - Taurine is used to produce bile acids essential for fat digestion and absorption.
Exercise Performance – Studies involving athletes demonstrated significantly better performance after taking a taurine supplement. Muscles contain high taurine levels, which helps ensure their proper function and protection from damage.
Diabetes – Studies suggest that taurine can improve diabetes outcomes by reducing blood sugar levels and insulin resistance and may reduce diabetic complications such as retinopathy and neuropathy.
