Source Naturals Taurine -- 500 mg - 120 Tablets

Calming Neurotransmitter. Suitable for Vegetarians. Taurine is a crystalline free-form amino acid. It is a soothing inhibitory neurotransmitter and plays a major role in stabilizing the heartbeat and electrical activity of the nerves. Taurine is also necessary for the proper functioning of the "sodium/potassium ATP-ase pump" which regulates the ion balance between the cells and the extracellular fluid that surrounds them. This critically important "pump" actually uses 7% to 40% of the ATP energy our bodies produce.

Helps to calm you!
 May 15, 2008
"Taurine helps calm me with no side effects. I used to have uncontrolable outbursts of anger. I started taking Taurine and Lithinase 3 times a day, about a year ago. I have not had an outburst since. I have gotten angry, but have been able to control it."

WARNING: Contains wheat gluten
 January 15, 2008
"I selected this product because it comes in tablet form, and I wanted to avoid gelatin capsules. After receiving it, I read on the label that the product contains wheat/gluten. This information is provided in the Vitacost product description -- but not in bold print as it is on the label -- and I didn't notice it. Because of gluten intolerance, I cannot use this product."
