Taurine: For Cardiovascular Health and Anxiety Relief
Taurine is a sulfonic or non-essential amino acid. While our bodies make taurine, and it can be found largely in meat, supplementation with Healing Taurine can provide significant health benefits depending on your needs. Because taurine plays an important role in moving potassium, calcium and magnesium in and out of heart cells, it has powerful abilities to improve cardiovascular function, particularly with regard to arrhythmia, congestive heart failure and heart attack treatment or prevention. Low levels of taurine are often found in patients who have had a heart attack. Taurine supplementation can also increase the secretion of nitric oxide, which dilates blood vessels and improves blood flow throughout the body, particularly the muscles, which provides much quicker recovery from training. It’s also been shown to lower cholesterol through improving the function of the gall bladder, which can then eliminate excess cholesterol via more efficient bile production.
As an inhibitory neurotransmitter, taurine has been shown to be effective in calming overactive brain states such as anxiety caused by stress. Because of this unique capability, it’s often used to help prevent seizures in epileptic patients and minimize manic states for those with bipolar disorder. Taurine has also been shown to increase testosterone production without raising the level of estradiol (a form of estrogen) in the body. It also provides excellent benefits for sleep, antioxidant protection and if you suffer from the effects of Type 2 diabetes. There is hardly any other nutritional supplement available that offers as many well-researched benefits across as wide a range of conditions as taurine. Even better, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has found no serious side effects from taurine supplementation, and the European Food Safety Authority has found that doses as high as 1,000mg per kg of body weight per day brought no ill effects.
