A homotaurine supplement combats age-related cognitive decline.
- Chemically similar to taurine
- May help slow decline cognitive functions
- Anticonvulsant and sedative properties
Our homotaurine supplement, or 3-amino-1-propane sulfonic acid, is a natural-source organic compound derived from specific types of seaweeds.
Though chemically similar to taurine, homotaurine seaweed contains only one additional carbon atom in its chain, thereby offering cognitive benefits that taurine does not provide. It is also structurally similar to the neurotransmitter GABA, so it has GABAergic effects and may even be useful as an anticonvulsant.
Everyday manifestations of age-related physiological decline in brain neurons include:
Recent studies on homotaurine have highlighted its neuroprotective effects in a specific area of the brain, the hippocampus, which is the site of memorization and learning.
Memory problems, which become more common with age, can develop as a result of an aggregation of the protein beta-amyloid, which is responsible for the loss of neurons in the hippocampus, and is a cause of Alzheimer's disease.
Natural homotaurine interacts with the soluble beta-amyloid protein, inhibiting the formation of the neuro-toxic aggregates that result in beta-amyloid plaque deposits in the brain, which in turn produce dysfunction — and ultimately the death — of brain cells. Taking homotaurine stems the increase in these plaques and reduces their toxic effects on the brain, protecting memory and learning function.
According to clinical studies conducted in Europe and North America, homotaurine uses may provide the following benefits:
For these reasons, homotaurine natural formula is a key neuro-nutrition supplement for slowing down the age-related decline in brain capacity.

It’s important you take the proper dosage of our homotaurine supplement to receive all of the homotaurine GABA B benefits. You should take one of our homotaurine 50 mg Capsules twice a day; once in the morning and once at night. And for the best absorption, you should take every dose with a meal.
When taken as directed, there should be no homotaurine side effects. However, it's vital that you perform your own research or consult with a physician before taking any new supplement, especially if you have underlying health conditions or concerns.
While homotaurine supplements are considered safe for most people, there isn't enough evidence to determine whether or not they’re appropriate for pregnant and breastfeeding women. So if you are pregnant or are breastfeeding, it may be best to avoid homotaurine until more research is done.
If you are suffering from Alzheimer's disease or cerebral amyloid angiopathy, your healthcare provider may suggest taking a higher dosage. But this should only be done at the advisory of a qualified health professional. That being said, there aren't any studies indicating a maximum dosage of homotaurine.
