Amino acids have a central role in the body's functioning. As building blocks of protein‚ as well as metabolism intermediates‚ the versatility of functions for the 20 amino acids that are found in proteins are impressive. One of these amino acids‚ glycine‚ stands out from the rest of the amino acids for a few reasons chemically‚ and also is very functional in different settings. Glycine Sticks 3 grams by Metabolic Maintenance provides an good source of glycine in a uniquely multipurpose stick form.
Glycine is an organic compound and also‚ of the 20 amino acids that are found in proteins‚ is the smallest. Glycine has a hydrogen substituent as its side chain‚ and also can fit in both hydrophilic or hydrophobic environments. It is a colorless‚ sweet-tasting crystalline that is not labeled as 'essential' because the body is able to make it from other chemicals. The body uses glycine in constructing proteins‚ but it also has functions beyond that‚ specifically in liver detoxification pathway and production of DNA‚ hemoglobin‚ and glutathione. Glycine is an inhibitory neurotransmitter- it transmits chemical signals in the brain‚ and may have an advanced role in promoting healthy neurological function.
Each 3 gram container of Glycine Sticks by Metabolic Maintenance contains 30 sticks and has a recommended dosage of one stick once daily to be used as desired‚ or as recommended by a healthcare professional. Pure glycine powder can be easily mixed with water or fruit juice as a nutritional sweetener.
