Taurine is an amino acid that plays numerous roles in promoting health. It is essential for heart function, fat metabolism, immune function, and maintaining visual acuity. Dietary sources of taurine include meat and seafood, especially shellfish such as mussels, clams and oysters. Individuals who do not eat these foods regularly, especially vegetarians, may be at risk for taurine deficiency. The scientific community is still in disagreement as to whether humans make enough taurine in their own
metabolism to meet their needs.

excess sodium out. This mineral balance is crucial for heart vitality and overall wellness. Unlike prescription diuretics, taurine is a familiar and vital nutrient to the body, and does not act
against the kidneys. Also, by encouraging the natural excretion of excess fluid, taurine helps maintain healthy blood pressure.
Optimal fat metabolism – Bile is a fluid that is made in the liver with the help of taurine, and is necessary for the proper digestion of fats. With an optimal intake of taurine, bile remain in a healthy,
liquid state, and is able to help maintain optimal fat metabolism.

functioning of white blood cells and helping to support a healthy immune response.
