NOW Foods Taurine Description
Nervous System Health
Healthy Visual Function
Taurine is a conditionally essential amino acid which is not utilized in protein synthesis, but is mainly found free in most tissues, especially throughout the nervous system. It functions in tissues by stabilizing cell membranes, aiding the transport of potassium, sodium, calcium, and magnesium in and out of cells. Taurine helps to generate and regulate nerve impulses and aids in the maintenance of fluid balance; it is also used by the body in visual pathways, as well as into the brain and nervous system, where it works together with glycine and GABA as a neurotransmitter.
Suggested Usage: Take 1 capsule 1 to 4 times daily with juice or water, preferably between meals.
