The Contributions of Taurine In The Body

The Contributions of Taurine In The Body

This neurotransmitter is affected by Kavinace, TravaCor, and Calm PRT


Taurine is an amino acid that is found abundantly inside the human body particularly the heart, eyes, blood platelets and in the brain. It is important in the activation and production of proteins and helps the photoreceptors in the eyes in certain eye functions. Taurine is also vital in other body functions such as sperm motility, blood platelet activity and insulin activity.


In addition to the abovementioned health benefits of taurine, the said amino acid also plays a vital role in the regulation of the nervous system. It helps in certain liver function, specifically in the formation of bile that is used by the digestive system. Taurine also aids in lowering the blood pressure thus treating hypertension. It also helps in the treatment of hepatitis, cystic fibrosis and other liver ailments. In the heart, taurine is known to strengthen the cardiac muscles in order to keep the heart stabilized. As a matter of fact, taurine is being used to prevent congestive heart failure.


Some of the other useful functions and benefits of taurine are as follows:

  • Taurine is used in the treatment of seizure disorders, autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD.
  • Improves mental performance.
  • Improves the immune system especially during times of illnesses and injuries.


Though most people would have an adequate amount of taurine for the body to use, an extra amount of this amino acid is necessary whenever we exert physical effort and stress.


For people who are undergoing intravenous feedings and for infants who are using milk formula based products, they need to have taurine supplementation.  Since infants do not have the ability to produce sufficient taurine, they needed to have taurine supplements in order to sustain the body’s needs. The same is true with individuals that are in tube feedings.
