What is Swanson Taurine?

Taurine has a bit of a bad image - for the past ten years or so, this naturally occurring amino acid has been tarnished by its association with different types of energy drinks. These super saccharine, highly caffeinated drinks of questionable nutritive value have used Taurine more for its symbolic relation to the bull than its actual one.

The reason Taurine got its name in the first place is because the sulphur-laden amino acid was first isolated and extracted from ox bile. This, in turn, was used to help synthesise and aid the digestion of fats and enzymes for people who simply couldn't.

Adults make Taurine naturally in the liver from the amino acid precursors cysteine and methionine with a little help from vitamin B6. It is a type of nutrient that your body can create by itself but can only be obtained and absorbed under certain conditions.

What is particularly unique about this amino acid is that, unlike others of its ilk, it isn't incorporated into proteins the way you'd expect - rather, it serves very specific physiological purposes. And it is for those that Swanson Taurine becomes truly desirable.

What is Swanson Taurine used for?

Swanson Taurine targets several bodily functions and serves them very specifically. It helps by assisting the normal physiological functions of the heart, the brain the retina, reproduction and immunity.

By protecting the brain from epileptic type reactions and the heart from arhythmic motion we can see that Swanson Taurine is not so much like a bolt of lightning through our bodies as it is a stabiliser. By protecting the brain from over excitement and the heart from ischemic damage, it preserves and enables their higher function.

Perhaps this is why it is so commonly associated with an ability to stimulate heart and mind. Studies have begun to see what links can be made between Swanson Taurine and heart strength too. One in particular found, in patients who have suffered heart disease, that by taking over 500mg of Taurine 3x p/d they were actually capable of doing more exercise for longer.

  • Stabilises heart from ischemic damage
  • Protects brain from over-excitement
  • Looks after the retina & the immune system
