Notably, taurine supports cardiac and ocular (eye) function.* It helps regulate many physiological processes including heart rhythm, blood pressure, platelet function, visual cell function and cholesterol degradation.* Its ability to help modulate calcium levels in cells, stabilize membranes, and restore antioxidant enzymes accounts for many of these actions.*

- Free of the following common allergens: milk/casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat/gluten, corn, yeast and soybeans.

Who should consider a taurine supplement?
Taurine is found abundantly in healthy bodies. However, certain diets, particularly vegetarian or vegan, lack adequate amounts.
Disease states — including liver, kidney, or heart failure, diabetes and cancer — can cause a deficiency in taurine.*3
And aging bodies often cannot internally produce an optimal amount of taurine, making supplementation important.*
Overall, anyone interested in longevity should consider this vital and low-cost nutrient.
