Taurine is a sulphur containing amino acid that, in adults, can be synthesised from cysteine when vitamin B6 and the mineral zinc are present. It is one of the most abundant amino acids in the body, and participates in the normal functioning of the heart, brain, eyes, gallbladder and vascular system.

Taurine has many diverse biological functions, serving as a neurotransmitter in the brain, a stabiliser of cell membranes and a facilitator in the transport of ions such as sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium. Taurine, after GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), is the second most inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain.

The amino acids alanine, glutamic acid and panthothenic acid inhibit taurine metabolism, while vitamins A and B6, zinc and manganese help to synthesise taurine. Cysteine and vitamin B6 are the nutrients most directly involved in taurine synthesis. the gallbladder utilises taurine for the formation of taurocholic acd, one of the two primary bile acids necessary for the breakdown of fats in the small intestine. Taurine is also involved with bilirubin and cholesterol excretion in bile.
