If you are a health drink afficionado and you are fond of drinking energy drinks such as “red bull” then you probably noticed that Taurine is one of its active ingredients. But what really is taurine? Read on further to find out more about taurine.

Chemical Features

Taurine is a nonessential amino acid which contains sulfur. It is a derivative of L-Methionine as well as L-Cysteine that functions as a neuroinhibitor transmitter. Its synthesis usually happened in the liver as well as the brain. There are also extremely high concentrates of taurine levels found in the brain, intestines and skeletal muscles.


Most amino acids have a Levo (left) and dextro (right) configuration. This means that a particular amino acid has the ability to rotate to either left of right depending on the configuration it possesses.  Contrary to this, taurine does not have an L or D configuration. In additional to that, it also does not have light polarization capabilities.


Functions of Taurine

Taurine can work with glycine and gamma-aminobutyric acid as well. Whenever you feel tired after doing things that involves extreme physical exertion, your body will cease to produce certain amounts of taurine. Increased levels of which may lead to ailments. As a metabolic transmitter, taurine functions as one of the chemicals in the body that detoxify toxins. Taurine also aids in strengthening cardiac contractility.  Although taurine does not have the genetic characteristics and could not be included into proteins and enzymes, it still plays a major role in the metabolism of bile acids in the digestive tract.


Taurine can also serve as a dietary lipid emulsification in the intestine wherein it would be working together with chenodeoxychloic acid. Chenodeoxychloic acid is an important bile acid component that helps promotes digestion.
