Taurine is considered a ‘conditional essential amino acid’. For most people it is manufactured naturally by the body but for others Taurine has to be provided by foods or supplements.
Taurine is found in foods such as meat, fish and dairy products. Taurine can also be found in most energy drinks.
Taurine is found in high concentrations in white blood cells, skeletal muscles, heart muscles and the central nervous system.
