Is Taurine a Missing Link for Optimal Human Health? – More Benefits of Beef
Necessary for handling stress and anxiety, critical for normal childhood development and even essential for your household pets, this nutrient is not coming from plants. No, we are going to talk about taurine, a nutrient unique to meat. While you may have heard about taurine peripherally, chances are you don’t have a complete appreciation for the number of benefits it has. It could even be argued that taurine, due to its conditionally available nature, is a missing link to optimal human health in today’s world.
