Taurine is contra-indicated for people with psoriasis.
It has been suggested here before, for use as a diuretic IF you do NOT have psoriasis.
Sorry for the all caps, just wanted to be clear!
If you eat a balanced diet, you should not have to supplement.
Taurine is a non-essential acid that contains an amino group.
This does NOT mean that your body can do without it though.
Its called "non-essential" because the body can make it out of two amino acids, cysteine and methionine.
Its found primarily in muscle tissue... fish and meat.
Its also in Red Bull.
If you look at the word, you'll see the root Taur-... from the Latin Taurus, bull.
That's cuz it was first isolated from ox bile.
I've read that taurine can increase growth hormone and stimulate the hypothalamus, calm the nervous system. Those all sound like good things to me. I give it to my elderly Pomeranian along with carnitine for his COPD.
Here's something I found online about side effects:congestive-heart-failure.emedtv.com/taurin
Why were you considering using it?
