Taurine has also been implicated in a wide array of physiological phenomena including inhibitory neurotransmission. Taurine is a semi-essential sulphur containing amino acid that is synthesized from methionine and cysteine metabolism. Taurine supports inhibitory (calming) neurotransmission by supporting the calming GABAnergic and glycinergic systems. Prematurely born infants who lack the enzymes needed to convert cystathionine to cysteine may become deficient in taurine. Thus, taurine is a dietary essential nutrient in these individuals and is often added to many infant formulas as a measure of prudence. There is also evidence that taurine in adult humans reduces blood pressure.*
