Taurine is an amino acid necessary for several of the body's metabolic processes. This is because taurine is found in almost every tissue throughout the body.
Taurine is found naturally in animal-sourced foods. It can also be produced within the body but at a decreased rate with age. Taurine is most abundant in the heart, retina, brain, and muscle tissues. Taurine is involved in various biological and physiological functions. For example, it is known to play a role in bile salt formation, which helps break down fats, aid digestion, absorb essential vitamins, and eliminate toxins. In addition, taurine helps reduce the generation of LDL cholesterol concentrations. Carrying high LDL cholesterol levels in the blood increases the risk for heart attack and stroke. Taurine is also critical for photoreceptor development, which aids in color and night vision abilities.
