Amino Taurine in capsules
• Helps support cardiovascular health

Amino L-Taurine from Genestra Brands provides this non-essential amino acid to help support cardiovascular health. The capsules are 100% pure vegetable-sourced.

Genestra’s Amino Taurine provides a high concentration of this non-essential amino acid necessary for the produciton of all other amino acids, and is a key component of bile produciton, essential for the digestion of fats and the control of serum cholesterol levels. Taurine is vital for the utilization of sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium, and it plays a major role in minimizing potassium loss. Amino L-Taurine is indicated for conditons associated with cardiovascular disorders, including arteriosclerosis, high and low blood pressure, and congestive heart failure; and for hypoglycemia. The capsules are 100% pure vegetable-sourced. Product ideal for vegans.

Amino Taurine supports cardiovascular function by providing 500 mg of taurine in each convenient capsule. High levels of taurine are present in the heart, where it may maintain intracellular calcium concentrations to support healthy heart rates.1Taurine also plays an important role in maintaining normal endothelial cell function. It helps to regulate osmolarity and cytokine production in endothelial cells, and may also help protect them against oxidative damage. To further support cardiovascular function, taurine helps to regulate platelet activity and vascular contractility. Additionally, taurine contributes to arterial function through its role in lipid metabolism. Taurine stimulates the production of bile acids from cholesterol and helps to increase hepatic LDL clearance. Research suggests that taurine also supports cardiovascular function during and after exercise. By mediating calcium homeostasis and supporting heart and skeletal muscle contractions under exhaustive conditions, taurine may help to promote muscle performance and exercise capacity. Randomized, placebo-controlled trials have found that daily supplementation with 1,500 mg of taurine for two weeks significantly supports cardiac function and exercise capacity, while regulating the cytokine and thrombotic response to exercise.
