Taurine Powder - 8 oz.
 
Commonly found in a variety of meats, dairy products and eggs, the amino acid Taurine can be obtained from the diet in minimal amounts.  Unfortunately, physical activity depletes our Taurine reserves faster than most people can produce it.  As a result, vegetarians, athletes and individuals lacking meat in their diets are at the greatest risk for deficiency, and stand to benefit the most from supplementing this life-crucial nutrient. 

As a catalyst to general amino acid efficiency as well as one of the most abundant amino acids in the human body, Taurine has a number of useful health benefits.  As a key constituent of bile acids, it helps the body absorb other nutrients with greater ease while moderating healthy cellular activity.  It has also been known to exhibit antioxidant properties that may help protect macular regions of the eye.  At the end of the day NOW Taurine Pure Powder is an outstanding all-around supplement.

Taurine is an amino acid that calms the nervous system by facilitating the production of the neurotransmitter GABA, which stands for gamma-aminobutyric acid. By helping to raise GABA levels, taurine will allow your body to manage anxiety so that your thoughts don’t go spiraling out of control and you don’t get the associated cortisol and adrenaline spikes that go with anxiety and stress.

It has also been shown to raise testosterone production in males, while not raising the concentration of estradiol, an estrogenic hormone. Another well studied benefit is taurine's ability to prevent diabetes and improve insulin sensitivity.
