What is Taurine?
Taurine is a free form and semi-essential amino acid as well as an antioxidant that plays a specialized role as an ion and pH buffer in the body.*
Dietary Sources of Taurine*
Dietary sources of taurine are meat and seafood, especially shellfish such as muscles, clams and oysters. Those 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.*
Also, elevated levels of homocysteine are a sign that the body may be having difficulty making taurine. Because taurine is essential for heart function, immune function, glucose metabolism, and nervous system health, low levels of taurine should be avoided and corrected with dietary changes and/or supplementation.*
Importance for Heart Health*
Taurine is one of the most important nutrients for promoting heart health. Taurine strengthens the heart muscle and plays a major role in regulating the heart's contractility.*
Taurine also acts as a natural diuretic by keeping potassium and magnesium inside cells and keeping excess sodium out. Such mineral balance is crucial for heart vitality and overall wellness. However, unlike prescription diuretics, taurine is not a cellular poison and it does not act against the kidneys.*
Taurine & Kidney Health*
In fact, taurine has been proposed for treatment of several kinds of human kidney disorders. Also, by encouraging the excretion of excess fluid, taurine helps to alleviate pressure on the blood vessels.*
Additionally, taurine increases circulation and stabilizes blood pressure by dampening the sympathetic nervous system, which when overactive constricts blood vessels. Furthermore, taurine relieves muscle spasms in the heart, another natural remedy to decrease high blood pressure.*
Taurine's calming effects on cell membranes make it useful in the management of epilepsy. Research in animal studies has shown that taurine has anticonvulsant action in seizures.*
A study showed epileptics have less taurine than controls, and that some anticonvulsant medication may actually affect the transport of taurine in the body. Certain chemicals like monosodium glutamate (MSG) and aspartame lower the body's concentration of taurine, which may be one reason why these food additives are associated with seizure activity. Some practitioners have reported that those with seizure activity remain free of seizures when taking taurine.*
