Taurine is absolutely essential as part of every four lows program in Nutritional Balancing. A four lows pattern is seen on a hair analysis when calcium, magnesium, sodium, and potassium are all less than their ideal levels. Taurine is not typically recommended unless an individual is going through this pattern. It helps to enhance the functioning of the cell membranes, which can be inhibited due to unmethylated phospholipid buildup. Taurine can help reverse this buildup and speed up the process of taking someone out of the four lows.
Taurine is an important component of bile and is needed for the digestion of fat-soluble vitamins, as well as the control of serum cholesterol. Taurine can also be helpful for copper toxicity and has many fantastic effects on the body, including:
- Helps with insomnia, depression, and anxiety
- Stimulates the release of growth hormone which increases muscle growth and reduces fat
- Maintains healthy vision and eye functioning
- Promotes healthy heart function and brain cell activity
- Supports gallbladder and liver functioning
- Increases red and white blood cells
- Produces norepinephrine - an appetite suppressant
- Produces melanin - the pigment of hair and skin
- Improves nitric oxide production in vascular endothelium – this is essential for blood flow and maintaining healthy blood pressure
Taurine takes part in many of the body’s physiological processes such as bile acid formation, which contributes to fluid regulation, fat digestion, regulation of cellular calcium and nerve excitability, as well as the detoxification of environmental toxins.
All animal bodies, including humans, have high concentrations of taurine. It is also found in animal-based foods, with the main food source coming from red meat such lamb. This is why vegetarians are more likely to experience taurine deficiency.
Endo-met provides taurine in 90 and 180 tablet sizes, which are both available from Wellness Shopping Online. 1000-2000 mg daily of taurine may be recommended for adults in the four lows. As always, it is best to get a hair analysis to determine your body’s needs and learn what recommendations are right for you.
