Taurine is one of the most abundant intracellular amino acids in the human body. Produced from the conditionally essential amino acid L-cysteine, researchers have described it as “one of the most essential substances in the body.” Taurine is found particularly in the excitable tissues of the central nervous system, where researchers believe it has a regulating influence. Studies suggest that taurine has a cardiovascular and neuroprotective role, and can help maintain cardiac health in certain aging people. Dietary taurine can also help support healthy liver function. And since taurine is deficient in many diets, why not be proactive and try it today!

  • One of the most abundant amino acids in the body
  • Called one of the most essential substances in the human body
  • Thought to help regulate central nervous system
  • Shows cardiovascular properties - blood pressure, etc.
  • and neuroprotective properties - helps with memory, brain fog, stamina and helps prevent seizures.
  • Promotes system-wide health

Taurine has been extensively studied, with widespread benefits.1,2 Unfortunately, production markedly declines as we age.3-5

According to published clinical trials, taurine has been shown to support:
  • Insulin sensitivity and glucose utilization.6,7
  • Proper utilization of minerals including calcium.1
  • Healthy eyes.1,8,9
  • Central nervous system regulation.2
  • Cell membrane stability and water balance (osmoregulation).2,10,11
  • Bile salt formation.1,10
  • Cognitive function and neuron integrity.2,10,12
  • Liver function.13
  • Heart health.11,14-16

One capsule taken one to three times daily on an empty stomach, or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner, can support optimal cardiovascular health. Take action to protect your health and add low-cost taurine to your supplement regimen today.

Taurine Supplementation Lowers Blood Pressure and Improves Vascular Function in Prehypertension:
Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study.

Sun Q1, Wang B1, Li Y1, et al.

Taurine, the most abundant, semiessential, sulfur-containing amino acid, is well known to lower blood pressure (BP) in hypertensive animal models. However, no rigorous clinical trial has validated whether this beneficial effect of taurine occurs in human hypertension or prehypertension, a key stage in the development of hypertension. In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, we assessed the effects of taurine intervention on BP and vascular function in prehypertension. We randomly assigned 120 eligible prehypertensive individuals to receive either taurine supplementation (1.6 g per day) or a placebo for 12 weeks. Taurine supplementation significantly decreased the clinic and 24-hour ambulatory BPs, especially in those with high-normal BP. Mean clinic systolic BP reduction for taurine/placebo was 7.2/2.6 mm Hg, and diastolic BP was 4.7/1.3 mm Hg. Mean ambulatory systolic BP reduction for taurine/placebo was 3.8/0.3 mm Hg, and diastolic BP was 3.5/0.6 mm Hg. In addition, taurine supplementation significantly improved endothelium-dependent and endothelium-independent vasodilation and increased plasma H2S and taurine concentrations. Furthermore, changes in BP were negatively correlated with both the plasma H2S and taurine levels in taurine-treated prehypertensive individuals. To further elucidate the hypotensive mechanism, experimental studies were performed both in vivo and in vitro. The results showed that taurine treatment upregulated the expression of hydrogen sulfide-synthesizing enzymes and reduced agonist-induced vascular reactivity through the inhibition of transient receptor potential channel subtype 3-mediated calcium influx in human and mouse mesenteric arteries. In conclusion, the antihypertensive effect of chronic taurine supplementation shows promise in the treatment of prehypertension through improvement of vascular function.
