ʟ‑Taurine is a specialized amino acid. It acts as a pH buffer in the heart, skeletal muscles, and central nervous system. ʟ‑Taurine is a nonprotein amino acid that is the end product of ʟ‑cysteine metabolism and the principal free intracellular amino acid found in human tissue. The most understood role of ʟ‑taurine in humans is its involvement in the formation of taurine bile acids conjugate in the liver; these acids are essential for micelle formation and fat absorption. ʟ‑Taurine is an important component in bile, which acts like soap, helping your body break down fats and fat-soluble vitamins. Recent research indicates taurine’s role as an important nerve and muscle interaction regulator.
ʟ‑Taurine is also used in the construction of all the other amino acids. Furthermore, ʟ‑taurine is involved in pre- and postnatal nervous and visual system development.
This amino acid, ʟ‑taurine, is not as easily found in animal meat as other amino acids and it must either be synthesized by your body or taken in supplement form. ʟ‑Taurine synthesis requires ʟ‑cysteine and vitamin B₆, both of which are not always present in sufficient quantities. Deficiencies in ʟ‑taurine can lead to epilepsy, hyperactivity, and poor brain function.
