Taurine is an essential amino acid that most folks do not need to supplement as it is plentiful in food. However, as we age it may be beneficial to supplement to help with age related cognitive decline. New studies have come out to show that taurine may protect brain cells against toxins such as organic pesticides and lead. It also reduces brain inflammation that can lead to Parkinson's and Alzheimer. It attenuates damage caused by amyloid protein, It prevents dysfunction in the mitochondria in the brain which will sustain energy levels. It can proliferate new neuron formation to sustain learning and memory. it can mitigate brain damage in stroke victims. Also, if you suffer from any of the following issues it may behoove you to supplement and see if it helps you: Cardio vascular issues High blood pressure Anxiety Eye disease Taurine is very safe and best taken on an empty stomach. I like this double strength size as it ensures you are getting an adequate dosage. I have used Now products for many years and found them to have quality products. It may not work for everyone or on all issues but it is relatively inexpensive and worth a try. If this review was helpful please click the YES button.

I began taking taurine on advice from a friend. I find it helps with mental function and has a mild calming effect. I started with another brand and switched to now foods because of the value. I plan on continuing. Thank you iHerb.

I am a diabetic attempting to control blood glucose levels with diet and exercise, mostly by eating less and fewer carbohydrates or foods with a high glyceamic index. I read that taurine, vanadyl sulfate, and alpha-lipoic acid may assist in glucose control and started using these products two weeks ago. My blood sugar readings have improved since but it is not entirely clear whether this is because of the supplements or because of reduced carbohydrate intake. If you want to try it yourself, I recommend not changing your diet and exercise habits so that you can be sure.
