Taurine

Plain Language Summary

Taurine is an important sulfur amino acid in the body, and it is used in the brain to retain proper hydration. Alcohol can limit the production of taurine. Direct supplementation can limit the amount of taurine that is lost.

Summary

Taurine is an end product of Sulfur Containing Amino Acid (SCAA) metabolism. Alcohol inhibits Taurine’s production. Supplementation can directly counteract this decrement and preserve SCAA reactions upstream. Taurine is also an osmolyte used to preserve cellular hydration especially in the CNS.
