This is an important study...always knew that there was a sulfur link to glutamate toxicity.

There was a brief mention of taurine buildup in the brains of the ALS patients, implying it's toxic. That has piqued my curiosity for sure, since without supplementing I get heart palpitations. I don't know what happens to my glutamate sensitivity without. Maybe I'll experiment one of these days -

Since we read that taurine helps as a glutamate blocker, the build-up may be similar to a histamine response the body has when a foreign substance or allergen is introduced. Our body or brain may release more of this amino acid in an attempt to counteract the effects of glutamate in the brain...along with other proteins that make up the tangle of proteins seen in diseased brains like those of Alzheimer's patients. Just thinking out loud.

Makes sense to me!
