Taurine is an organic acid found in animal and human tissue. It is sometimes called an amino acid, but technically, it is not, as it lacks a carboxyl group. Taurine is a naturally occurring sulfonic acid. It can be derived from the amino acid, cysteine. 

Benefits of Taurine include:
- Heart Function: It is important for the function of the cardiovascular system, skeletal muscle, retina,  and central nervous system. Other functions include regulating the level of water and mineral salts in the blood.
- Anti-oxidant: It acts as an antioxidant by reducing oxidative stress caused by exercise. 
- Brain Function: It has been shown to be effective against anxiety, depression, and poor brain function.

For the above reasons, Taurine is often found in sports nutrition supplements to boost performance and delay fatigue. Taurine occurs naturally in food, especially in seafood and meat.
