Source Naturals Taurine Powder Inhibitory Neurotransmitter 3.53oz. (100 grams)
Taurine is a crystalline, free-form amino acid. Source Naturals Taurine Powder Calming Neurotransmitter is a soothing, inhibitory neurotransmitter and plays a major role in stabilizing the heartbeat and electrical activity of the nerves. Source Naturals Taurine Powder Inhibitory Neurotransmitter is also necessary for the proper functioning of the "sodium/potassium ATP-ase pump", which regulates the ion balance between the cells and the extracellular fluid which surrounds them. This critically important "pump" actually uses 7% to 40% of the ATP energy our bodies produce.

Source Naturals Taurine Soothing Neurotransmitter
Low levels of key nutrients may throw your metabolic systems out of balance. Low taurine levels may impact your vision, fat metabolism and the electrical activity of your nerves. Taurine, found in high concentrations within white blood cells, heart muscles, brain, and the central nervous system, is a powerhouse nutrient necessary to keep your body systems running smoothly. During intense physical activity your taurine reserves are burned up faster than your body can replenish them. Studies have shown that with advancing age, taurine levels in a number of tissues even begin to decline. It is for these many reasons that Source Naturals now offers taurine in a powerful 1000 mg form, allowing your body to restore and maintain healthy levels of this vital nutrient.
Source Naturals Taurine
Taurine is one of the most abundant amino acids present in many tissues of the body. It is chiefly concentrated in the brain, retina, and heart, as well as in the muscle tissues, blood platelets and neutrophils. Its significance in maintaining cellular integrity and in the synthesis of ATP energy transfer was not fully recognized for more than 100 years after it was first discovered in 1827. Scientific studies have demonstrated its necessity for proper neural and retinal development in human infants. Taurine was commonly added to infant formulas shortly thereafter. Taurine is found in negligible quantities in plants, which makes taurine supplementation a great idea for vegans.
Source Naturals Taurine Soothing Neurotransmitter Function
Scientific studies have shown that taurine inhibits spontaneous firing of neurons without affecting their normal function. The harmonizing influence comes from its ability to stabilize and protect nerve cell membranes which prevents the erratic firing of nerve cells. Scientific studies have also shown that taurine activates receptors for the inhibitory neurotransmitters glycine and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), and exhibits neuromodulatory activity in multiple channels of the brain.
Digestion and Cholesterol Wellness
Dietary taurine is conjugated in the liver to form a bile acid which is an essential ingredient for fat digestion as well as for the support of cholesterol serum levels already in the normal range. Bile acids function as a detergent for emulsification and absorption of lipids. The taurine that is not fully conjugated in the liver is circulated into the various body tissues. Once incorporated into the cells, taurine performs important membrane-stabilizing and antioxidant activities. It also acts as a neuromodulator and regulator of nerve impulses. Source Naturals takes health issues seriously and strives to provide the general public with every means to support all around good health. As a key player in the digestive system, taurine ensures the proper breakdown of vital nutrients before they enter the bloodstream. Besides the 1000 mg form, Source Naturals offers two additional taurine alternatives: a 500 mg capsule, and a powder. Source Naturals encourages you to take control of your wellness through education, healthy nutrition and by embracing sound lifestyle strategies.
Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.
Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
