Good Quality, low price
 May 1, 2014
"Like many other Vitacost products, this is also reasonably priced. It's hard to tell the effectiveness of amino acids while you are taking them. You feel the difference in the overall well being when you stop taking them. At this price, I find easy to stay on my supplements regiment."

Can note the difference
 June 27, 2013
"Easy to swallow capsules filled with Taurine for a low price.
I have bought Taurine before and at that time I didn't notice much effect. Lately I felt exhausted for a longer period. As I'm almost vegetarian it is likely that my intake of Taurine is sub-optimal. Therefore I decided to give it another try. Since I feel much better.
