It works very much like GABA, the neurotransmitter whose receptor is agonized by benzodiazepines. If you play loosy-goosy with chemical terminology taurine is gamma-amino (prop) sulphonic acid, whereas GABA is gamma-amino butyric acid. It's the same structure, but with a sulphonic acid group in place of the carboxylic acid one.

Lar,

How would you compare glycine to taurine for anxiety? A friend of mine is going to try glycine soon as he is quite anxious. After reading your post above, I'm thinking that he might be better off with taurine.
