L-Taurine (Taurine) plays a calming role as a neurotransmitter by counteracting the stimulatory effect of glutamate.
L-Taurine also has a very important antioxidant activity function in white blood cells, leukocytes and lymphocytes. These cells are important in protecting the body from foreign substances and invading organisms.
The formation of taurocholic acid, a key component of bile, requires L-Taurine. Bile allows for the absorption of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K, as well as essential fatty acids.
