Taurine and Detoxification

Here is an example of the importance of sulfur containing amino acids Taurine, glutathione etc) for detoxification. I know that sometimes it is a tough call because some kids cannot tolerate any sulfur supplements. This is an article by Bill Shaw

I was interested in Sid’s comments about taurine, bile salts, and chlorinated water sensitivity. Taurine reacts with hypochlorite ion, the main form of chlorine in swimming pools, to form chlorotaurine. Chlorotaurine can then be utilized later by converting it back to hypochlorite to kill Candida or other organisms. So, if taurine is deficient, there will be an inadequate ability to detoxify hypochlorite and sensitivity to pool water as well as inadequate Candida and bacteria defense, and inadequate bile salt production.
