Taurine is a sulfur-containing non-protein amino acid that was first isolated from the bile of bulls, hence the name. It is widely found in animal foods, especially meat, eggs, dairy products and so on. Human body synthesis of taurine cysteine sulfite carboxylase (CSAD) activity is low, mainly rely on the intake of food taurine to meet the needs of the body. For carnivorous cats, to get enough taurine, they must eat enough animal food.
💬 what are the benefits of Taurine?
Maintain cardiovascular function: Taurine maintains cardiovascular function, protects the heart from damage and reduces the risk of heart attack.
Promotes muscle contraction and nerve conduction: Taurine plays a key role in muscle contraction and nerve conduction and is important for maintaining muscle function and nervous system health.
Lower blood sugar and cholesterol: Taurine lowers blood sugar and cholesterol levels, helping to prevent diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects: Taurine has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects that can reduce the body’s oxidative stress response and inflammatory response, which is beneficial to the body.
In short, Taurine is an important nutrient with multiple benefits for maintaining human health. However, Taurine requirements may vary from population to population, so moderate supplementation is recommended based on individual circumstances.
💬What is the role of Taurine in muscle contraction and nerve conduction?
The role of Taurine in muscle contraction and nerve conduction is to regulate calcium channels and control the rate at which calcium enters cells. During muscle contraction, action potentials are generated when nerve impulses are transmitted to the muscle, which causes extracellular calcium ions to enter the cell. These calcium ions bind to troponin, causing the muscle to contract. Taurine regulates the conformation of troponin and controls the rate at which calcium ions enter cells, affecting the strength and speed of muscle contraction.
In nerve conduction, Taurine also regulates the excitability and conduction speed of nerve cells. It can inhibit the opening of potassium ion channels, slow down the excitability and conduction speed of nerve cells, and thus affect the transmission of nerve signals. In addition, Taurine promotes the growth and repair of nerve cells, which is important for the development and health of the nervous system.
