Taurine is one of my favorite prescriptions for perimenopause, menopause, sleep, mood, insulin resistance, and migraine prevention.
Taurine is an amino acid, but unlike most other amino acids, it’s not used to build protein. Instead, taurine has direct effects on the liver, brain, and immune system. It’s also an important antioxidant! And, fun fact: taurine accounts for up to 0.1 percent of body weight.
