The body from dietary intake or their synthetic taurine, animal food is the main source of dietary taurine, especially sea animals. Synthesis of sulfur-containing amino acids from the body (half-skin acid, methionine, etc.) through a series of enzymatic reactions transformed from, but their synthesis is low.
