An Important Amino Acid
Taurine is an important amino acid that has an essential role in many biological events. It helps to regulate ion flow across the membranes of cells, biosynthesize water soluble bile salts, and helps the enzymes that are involved in the detoxification of potentially harmful compounds. It has antioxidant activities, and helps to enhance the function of the immune system.
Heart Disease and Neurological Function
Taurine is the most abundant amino acid in the heart, and is important for cardiovascular function. It helps to regulate blood pressure, and has been used to help with various types of heart disease including congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, and hypertension. It has also been found to minimize the effects of congestive heart failure. Taurine is able to cross the blood brain barrier, and may have potential in helping to deal with neurological disorders.
Taurine’s role in cardiovascular and neurological systems gives it a range of potential benefits for various health effects. AOR’s Taurine provides this amino acid in a safe and effective dose that reflects current research.
