Touring your Taurine Requirements

Taurine is a unique amino acid that isn't used to build proteins but is vital for many bodily functions, especially in the brain, heart, muscles, and eyes.

Our body can make taurine with the help of vitamin B6, but not enough during times of illness or stress, so we might need to get it from foods like seafood, meat, and dairy, or via supplementation.

Taurine supports heart health, helps prevent cell damage, and is important for metabolism and the nervous system. It's particularly beneficial for conditions like heart failure, diabetes, and neurological disorders. Supplementation should be done under medical guidance, especially for those with specific health conditions or dietary restrictions.
