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. Taurine has been found to be important in the formation of bile salts, cell membrane stabilization, and eye health. Taurine is well known for its role in the modulation of neurotransmitter activity and its relaxing effect on the mood.*
Comments about NOW Foods Taurine, 500mg, Capsules, 100 ea:
I'm a type 2 diabetic and if you do not know: diabetes damages the nervous system. The nerves in my feet were to the point that I could not tell if my foot was on the gas pedal or not. Taurine was one of the things that was in the cat food I was researching. When I read it is good for your nerves I thought: I can test that out. After just one capsule I could tell a difference in my feet and after taking 3 a day for a week or so I now have feeling in my feet and for the rest of the nerves in by body; I have a better feeling all over.
