NOW Double Strength Taurine offers 1,000 milligrams of Taurine in one serving! Taurine has been found to be important in maintaining the body's natural electrolyte balance. It is a conditionally essential amino acid which is not utilized in protein synthesis, but is mainly found free in most tissues, especially throughout the nervous system. It functions in tissues by stabilizing cell membranes, aiding the transport of potassium, sodium, calcium and magnesium in and out of cells. Taurine helps to generate and regulate nerve impulses and aids in the maintenance of fluid balance already within normal levels.  It also is used by the body for visual pathways. Not manufactured with wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, fish, shellfish or tree nut ingredients.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Double Strength Taurine is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from TAURINE THE TERRIFIC I have used Taurine forever. I like it a lot. I consider it very valuable in a number of significant areas you can read about in Swanson's product descriptions and other reliable places online (i.e. for the brain, eyes, liver / digestion, nervous system / relaxation), so I take it every day. Depending on my schedule, I either take it in these 1,000 mg. capsules (1 or 2 with dinner), or a tsp of the Powder Form in my Amino Acids cocktail during the day after a workout. Either way, good stuff. I strongly recommend Taurine. Works for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eye Health, Electrolyte Balance Originally I tried Taurine for electrolyte balance for workouts. Then I didn't work out much, but recently found that Taurine is helpful for eyes. I include. Taurine. In my eye care regimen, (a lot of time using computers, also daily/nightly reader-hardcover and Kindle). Seems to be helping with night vision while using Lutein and Eyebright as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product i use this product before and after I work out, it boost my energy levels to an explosive level. It's cheaper and better than drinking "Monster drinks". It's the active ingredient in those drinks without taking in all the other nonsense ingredients. Plus a bottle last u for a whole month for the price of just 2 cans of " monster drink"!!! "It's a no brainer"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bottled Energy Got a tip from some pretty healthy people on this product. I was amazed after probably a week that it was true. I feel years younger and have more energy. When I wake up I don't drag around. Ready to go. Read books on the mixture of this and L-Arginine. I take 2 daily. First rate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vegan needing Taurine Since I am a Vegan and do not eat animal products or dairy which are the sources we can get taurine is important that I supplement with taurine. I take only one each day 1000mg. NOW foods is a good brand and Swanson's price is very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Taurine capsules This is a required ingredient in my dog's multi vitamin/mineral supplement recipe, and this particular brand is vet recommended. Great price! When this bottle is empty soon, I'm going to switch to their Taurine Powder (loose powder in a bottle) so I don't have to keep emptying the capsules!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from LARGE CAPSULES The capsules are too large to swallow and seem to get stuck in my esophagus. Would recommend a smaller tablet or capsule. Otherwise, product is a good value.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from didn't do anything for me So, what exactly is this stuff supposed to do? I heard it helps "enhance exercise performance." Certainly didn't help me perform better. If anything, my bicycling performance seemed to get worse, not better!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Advised by a MD for me I'd not been aware of this before my husband's physician, and my former MD, mentioned this might be something I should be taking to calm both my over-active mind and testy evening digestion, come to find out. Most times, I take a capsule with my bedtime tea of choice. This particular mg strength and brand seemed like my best bet. It may just be helpful- I'm not yet sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful Product I actually use this product at night to help me get to sleep. It actually works for me better than any other herbal supplement meant for that use. I have been using it nightly for years & am very satisfied with this product. The price is great too!
