L-Taurine (also known as Taurine) is a sulfur-containing amino acid that
acts as a neurotransmitter, has antioxidant properties and is needed
for proper bilary function. L-Taurine is abundant in the tissues of the
central nervous system and plays a calming role as a neurotransmitter
by counteracting the stimulatory effect of glutamate.
Kirkman® offers the highest quality, chemically pure L-Taurine
available. Our capsules are hypoallergenic, specially formulated for
individuals with special requirements or sensitivities. They are made
from plant cellulose (pine) instead of the traditional animal gelatin
shell. This product contains 1000 mg of L-Taurine. A lower strength
325 mg L-Taurine product is also available.
L-Taurine has a very important antioxidant function in white blood
cells, leukocytes and lymphocytes. These cells are important in
protecting the body from foreign substances and invading organisms.
L-Taurine is needed to form taurocholic acid, a key component of bile.
Proper bile formation is very necessary for the absorption of essential
lipids from the digestive tract. Bile forms water-oil emulsions of
dietary lipids, allowing for the absorption of the fat-soluble vitamins
A, D, E, and K, as well as essential fatty acids.
L-Taurine deficiency, which often occurs when individuals are on a restricted diet, can be measured in the laboratory.
Sugar, starch, soy, wheat, casein, gluten, milk, corn, egg, preservatives, yeast, gelatin, flavorings, colorings, peanuts, tree nuts or fish.
