Abstract Taurine supplementation may prove to be a safe and convenient method to reverse high blood cholesterol and the associated rise in atherosclerosis. Although human studies are limited, experiments using animal models provide extensive proof of the hypolipidemic and antiatherogenic effects of taurine. Examples of these animal models involve feeding with high-fat diets, genetically determined or heritable disease conditions, and artificially induced or genetic diabetes.
