Carsten Vagn Hansen: Taurine plays a great role in the cure of alcohol dependence

February 6, 2017

Danish former radio doctor Carsten Vagn Hansen: Taurine plays a great role in the cure of alcohol dependence. Among other things a gram three times a day reduces the risk of psychotic episodes.
A study of more than 3,000 people depending on alcohol showed, that those who received a supplement of taurine had less relapses than those who got placebo. A reasonable supplement is 500 mg 3 times a day.
Taurine as a supplement is safe in doses up to 4 – 5 gram, under all circumstances 3 gram and below.
If potassium is elevated, supplements should not be prescribed.
Taurine stabilizes brain function. It has been used in cases of epilepsy, anxiety, hyperactivity.
Children cannot produce taurine.
