Taurine RDI

There is no current recommended daily intake or tolerable upper intake for taurine.

Therapeutic dosage

There is a therapeutic dosage for taurine, which is the most that can be safely taken for a short period before supplementation produces side effects:

  1. Adults: 250-2,000mg per day
There is no current recommended daily intake or tolerable upper intake for taurine.

The higher levels of taurine should only be taken under strict medical supervision because supplementation at very high levels may cause some side effects in some people.
