Taurine is the second most common amino acid found in the body, and has many different health benefits due to its ability to help stabilize cell membranes. The most recent population studies have referred to taurine as a “wonder molecule” responsible for the longevity benefits of the Japanese. Taurine is the most abundant amino acid in the heart, and is important for several aspects of cardiovascular function, including blood pressure and heart rhythm. Taurine is often used to improve exercise performance due to its involvement in cardiac function and energy storage. It is able to cross the blood brain barrier, and some evidence has suggested it may have potential in helping to deal with neurological disorders.
Although the research on taurine has mainly focused on cardiovascular and neurological function, emerging evidence is suggesting a vast array of other health benefits including blood sugar regulation, detoxification, and immune function. AOR Taurine can provide support for those with cardiovascular conditions, and is also an excellent anti-aging nutrient as part of a general wellness protocol.
