Taurine is an amino acid and natural antioxidant that supports better cardiovascular, metabolic, and neurologic health.
Taurine is the most abundant amino acid in our bodies. Taurine is found particularly throughout the central nervous system, where it is thought to have a regulating influence. Taurine also promotes cardiovascular health, insulin sensitivity, electrolyte balance, hearing function, and immune modulation.
Yet, taurine is only the most abundant amino acid in your body, if you are healthy. However, certain diets, particularly vegetarian or vegan diets, lack adequate amounts of taurine.

Doses of up to 6,000 milligrams a day of taurine have proven to be very effective in protecting heart function. Smaller doses are typically used to improve brain function and prevent epilepsy.
2000-3000 milligrams/day is a safe place to start, and you can increase intake as needed. Any excess taurine is simply excreted by the kidneys. Moderation is important, however. There’s no evidence of negative health effects from supplementing with taurine but little is known at this point about the effects of heavy or long-term taurine use.
