Taurine is an amino sulfonic acid that the body makes and is not found in plant foods. Non-vegetarians eat about 40 – 70 mg/day and vegans have been shown to have lower blood levels.
Every once in awhile, I decide to experiment with taking a molecule that vegans have less of just to see if I notice anything from taking it. A couple years ago I took 1,000 mg of taurine for a week and didn’t notice anything.
For a couple reasons, I recently decided to experiment with it again and took it for 32 days at 500 mg/day. I noticed nothing good nor bad and stopped short of taking the full 50 capsules I had purchased.
