Taurine Calming Neurotransmitter Taurine is a crystalline, free-form amino acid. It is a soothing, inhibitory neurotransmitter and plays a major role in stabilizing the heartbeat and electrical activity of the nerves. Taurine is also necessary for the proper functioning of the "sodium/potassium ATP-ase pump", which regulates the ion balance between the cells and the extracellular fluid that surrounds them. This critically important "pump" actually uses 7% to 40% of the ATP energy our bodies produce.*
Low levels of key nutrients may throw your metabolic systems out of balance. Low taurine levels may impact your vision, fat metabolism and the electrical activity of your nerves. Taurine, found in high concentrations within white blood cells, heart muscles, brain, and the central nervous system, is a powerhouse nutrient necessary to keep your body systems running smoothly. During intense physical activity your taurine reserves are burned up faster than your body can replenish them. Studies have shown that with advancing age, taurine levels in a number of tissues even begin to decline. It is for these many reasons that Source Naturals now offers taurine in a powerful 1000 mg form, allowing your body to restore and maintain healthy levels of this vital nutrient.
