Taurine is a naturally-occurring organic acid found in animal tissues -- most specifically in heart and skeletal muscles, as well as in white blood cells and the bile-producing large intestines of animals and humans. It is essential in the absorption of vitamins that are fat soluble and aids in the digestion of fats. Taurine was first isolated from ox bile in 1827 and was given the name in honor of the latin word for bull or ox.
Taurine is essential for cardiovascular function, and the development and function of skeletal muscle, the retina, and the central nervous system, and has many fundamental biological roles such as anti-oxidation, osmoregulation, membrane stabilization and calcium signaling.
Occurring naturally in food such as seafood, meat and breast milk, Taurine has been shown to be effective in removing fatty liver deposits and preventing liver disease in laboratory studies, and there is also evidence that Taurine is beneficial in the regulation of human blood pressure. It has been suggested that Taurine may play a useful role in supporting a variety of processes including cell hydration, protein synthesis and cardiac function.
