Taurine is a sulfur-containing beta-amino acid and is the most abundant intracellular amino acid in the human body. We provide ourselves with taurine in two ways - through food or through biosynthesis.
Our main source of taurine is precisely food and the products of animal origin that are richest in this amino acid are meat, eggs, seafood. Dairy products contain it to a much lesser extent. Plant foods or do not contain the amino acid or the content is negligible.
The taurine biosynthesis occurs primarily in the brain and liver through a series of chemical reactions requiring three main components - the amino acids methionine, cysteine, and vitamin B6.
