Guys, I want to tell you a little bit about Glycine- It's a VERY special amino acid worth knowing about.
Without knowing it, glycine is helping your body every day with muscle repair, cognitive function, metabolic health, and immunity. This amino acid assists in breaking down glycogen, fat and other nutrients to be used as energy at the cellular level. When it comes to aging gracefully it plays a role with the important antioxidant glutathione as well as human growth hormone. With HGH, By building up and breaking down muscle we actually stimulate a cascade of positive physiological responses in the body that keep us feeling and looking Amazing. I like to think of glycine as supporting our most optimal health! Our liver also loves glycine.. And the liver is what helps us balance all our hormones which is so critical.
In the brain Glycine acts as a neurotransmitter similar to GABA. It is in fact released with GABA to help calm or inhibit parts of the central nervous system..Glycine modulates excitatory neurotransmitters as well, meaning it can go both ways. This neurotransmitter helps with sleep, memory, stress , anxiety and even severe mental illness.
Anyone who over methelates can benefit from glycine because it buffers excess methyl groups. Methylation is a biochemical process that has an impact on B vitamin status. Without proper levels of B vitamins the body generates less glycine.
By restoring gut health you can also support immunity . This is one of the AMAZING benefits of glycine. Given that digestive disorders and autoimmune conditions are on the rise it's SO important to ensure you are getting enough glycine.
One amazing way to support your body with glycine is with collagen. This is why My holi(mane) is a staple I use every single day. My holi(mane) collagen formula is sourced with wild caught marine fish. Most collagens on the market are sourced from farm fish. The Bioavailability in farm fish is compromised as the molecules are larger and therefore less absorbable. Well sourced marine collagen contains type 1 collagen which is the most bioavailable to the human body.
Have you tried my holi (mane) collagen yet? I promise you will love it as much as I do!
