Thanks so much for the response! Yes I was considering using it only because there was a product for a liver cleanse that had Taurine in it and I remembered something I read on here that I couldn't have it. Now I know why! I do have Psoriasis. Why will Taurine exaserbate it?

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:

Why were you considering using it?

I know this is off the subject but I can find the post on this so I will ask here. I read on a post a few months back on taurine and the thyroid and to avoid it when hypo or hyper. Is this true and why? I researched it and was unable to find anything.

There's been a few queries about Raspberry Ketones on our forum before... let me see if I can find them for ya... okay this one is pretty recent and it combines the two posts...

Bottom line... I'd use caution with anything you hear recommended on the Dr Oz show, do your own research before spending time and money.

They've got an entire hour to fill up, 5 days a week, and as a consequence, a lot of stuff gets on that show before its tested out in real life situations, with real live humans.

That said, I have to applaud Dr Oz for getting people involved with their own care, educating them on various organs and their function, co-authoring a number of easy to read, humorous and educational books with Dr Roizen AND being a heart surgeon! Its a hard act to follow.

If you do decide to try them out, OR find anything online to support their use, we'd love to benefit from your experience... so make sure you come back and tell!
