Therapeutic Uses

Preliminary evidence suggests that taurine might be helpful in congestive heart failure (CHF), a condition in which the heart has trouble pumping blood, which leads to fluid accumulating in the legs and lungs. ^[2] Warning: Keep in mind that CHF is too serious for self-treatment. If you're interested in trying taurine or any other supplement for CHF, you should first consult your doctor.

There is also some evidence that taurine may be helpful for acute viral hepatitis . ^[4] Taurine has additionally been proposed as a treatment for numerous other conditions, including alcoholism , cataracts , diabetes , epilepsy , gallbladder disease , hypertension , multiple sclerosis , psoriasis , and stroke , but the evidence for these uses is weak and, in some cases, contradictory. ^[14] ^[15] ^[16] ^[17] Taurine is also sometimes combined in an "amino acid cocktail" with other amino acids for treatment of attention deficit disorder , but there is no evidence as yet that it works for this purpose.
