White Plains, New York, December 12, 2018 — Supplementing with taurine can treat taurine deficiencies in people and pets which, although uncommon, can occur with unconventional diets, such as grain-free diets for dogs. Taurine may also help people suffering from congestive heart failure and liver diseases, such as hepatitis and cirrhosis, as well as dogs and cats with dilated cardiomyopathy. But which are the best taurine supplements in terms of quality and value?

To find out, ConsumerLab recently purchased and tested popular taurine supplements for people and pets sold in the U.S. These included taurine capsules, powders, and chewable tablets. ConsumerLab found that a 500 mg dose of taurine can cost from just 1 cent up to 13 cents -- or even 49 cents in formulations for pets. Among products found to contain their claimed amounts of taurine, ConsumerLab selected those offering the best value as its Top Picks.

The results are available online now in ConsumerLab's new Taurine Supplements Review, which includes test results and comparisons. Products covered in the report are: Allmax Taurine, Bulk Taurine, Formula V Taurine Tablets, Now Taurine, Solgar Taurine, Thorne Taurine, Twinlab Taurine and VetriScience Cardio Strength. The review also explains who may benefit from taurine supplementation, summarizes the clinical evidence, and discusses dosage for congestive heart failure and liver disease in people as well as dilated cardiomyopathy in dogs and cats. Seven of the products were selected for testing by ConsumerLab and one underwent the same testing through CL's voluntary Quality Certification Program.
