Taurine capsules and powder deliver effective doses of this sulfur-containing amino acid found mainly in meat and seafood. Vegetarians and non-meat/fish eaters therefore may not be meeting their requirements for taurine. Scientists are unsure whether humans make enough taurine, and elevated levels of homocysteine often suggests the body may be having difficulty making this compound. This high-quality formula of pure taurine powder makes getting meaningful doses easy for people who do not like to swallow capsules or need higher doses of this amino acid. Taurine is also needed to make bile and taurocholic acid.
