Amino acids are essential for health and there are 22 amino acids present in the body which are the basic building blocks of protein. They are essential to the proper functioning of the body. Taurine, is distributed throughout the body with high concentration in certain tissues including heart wall muscles, in the retina of the eye, and brain.
Essential amino acids are a group of amino acids that cannot be synthesized in the body and must be obtained from the diet. This is especially true for cats and the reason most cat foods contain added taurine. However, dogs may also be lacking in this mineral if they are not eating enough fresh meat or eating cereal based diets or processed foods.
