Glycine is an important amino acid for several reasons. It can support the liver and kidneys in removing potentially harmful toxins from the body‚ while also promoting cognitive health.
It's technically not considered to be an essential amino acid‚ since it can be produced from other chemicals naturally abundant in the body. Furthermore‚ dietary sources include foods high in protein like dairy products‚ legumes‚ meats‚ and fish. However‚ there are some cases when you may want or need a boost in your glycine levels. That's where Pure Encapsulations' Glycine Vegetable Capsules come in.
Every capsule provides 500 milligrams of free-form glycine. It may protect the nerves‚ while supporting mental functioning and working to improve your memory. Glycine can benefit thinking due to its involvement in transmitting chemical signals throughout the brain.
In addition‚ glycine can help moderate the release of cytokines‚ substances secreted by the immune system and other cells that allow its cells to communicate with each other; their release can be thrown out of whack by metabolic stress.
Perhaps most essential is glycine's potential detoxification effects. The kidneys and liver are vital organs whose good functioning is essential to overall health. Both work to eliminate toxins from the body‚ which you can be exposed to through the foods you eat or the environment you live in. Glycine can support their efforts by binding with toxic substances and making them harmless‚ allowing you to excrete them.
Take three to six capsules daily‚ in divided doses between meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 180-capsule bottle of Glycine by Pure Encapsulations should last for one to three months.
