Taurine, or 2-aminoethanesulfonic acid, is a varient of sulfur-containing non-protein amino acid widely distributed in the organic world. The central nervous system, the retina, bile acid, and the heart of mammals contain relatively large amounts of taurine. Taurine can relieve pain, resist inflammation, boost cardiac function, stimulate bile secretion, enhance immunity, improvises infant brain and intelligence development, accelerate nerve conduction, and improve visual function. Therefore, it is used extensively in pharmaceutical supplements, food and beverage additives, animal and poultry feed, and aqua-cultural feed.
Researches have proved that taurine – a nutritional physiological active substance, is essential to the physiological regulation of the human body, especially to the cerebral growth of infants, nerve conduction, visual function improvement, and calcium absorption. Taurine’s medical and pharmaceutical value lies in its ability to relieve fever, ease pain, protect the liver and the gallbladder, reduce blood sugar level, maintain normal visual function, adjust nerve conduction, and regulate lipid metabolism. It also takes part in the internal secretion process, increases heart contraction capability, and boosts immunity.
Taurine is a highly effective pure organic immunopotentiator. Its addition to the feed of aquatic products and animals, or medicines helps optimise gastrointestinal movement, increase appetite, promote growth, and enhance immunity.
