Glycine Health Benefits
The health benefits of Glycine have recently been published in an important, peer reviewed scientific paper, entitled: Glycine & Ageing: Evidence & Mechanisms1. This paper, published in March 2023, supports what has been understood by the natural health community for many years, that being, Glycine supports detoxification and likely extends life.
But, extending life on its own, is not always a good thing. Quality of life is of utmost importance.
Extended lifespan, when there is a poor quality of life, would be seen undesirable by many.
The fact that Glycine extends life, whilst also supporting quality of life, is immensely important.
Glycine Skin Health Benefits
Glycine is essential for producing collagen, the connective tissue that gives our skin its integrity.
Insufficient glycine in our diet will lead to signs of ageing becoming more evident. This is because glycine reduces our predisposition to show signs of ageing, such as developing wrinkles and losing the plump, youthful appearance of our skin.
Life Extending Benefits of Glycine
Glycine increases autophagy and restricts methionine. Both of these actions increase life-expectancy.
Autophagy allows our bodies to break down and reuse old cell parts so that our cells can function more efficiently.
Methionine is a unique sulphur-containing amino acid. Whilst necessary for the body, excess methionine can disrupt detoxification processes, known as methylation. So, the fact that glycine can regulate excess methionine is important. The new study, mentioned above, shows that methionine restriction is an important factor in increasing lifespan.
Wild As the Wind Products Containing Glycine
Wild As the Wind carries two products which contain Glycine. These are:
- Rejuvenance Active Cell Cleanse With Super Greens
- Rejuvenance Active Cell Cleanse With Microalgae
- Rejuvenance Active Cell Cleanse With Super Greens Refill Pack
- Rejuvenance Active Cell Cleanse With Microalgae Refill Pack
These Rejuvenance products, produced by the Clay Cure, are designed to support and improve systemic processes within the body, whilst also facilitating effective detoxification. Both of these actions will lead to improved life expectancy and a better quality of life.
Additional Benefits Of Glycine
The study also highlighted how glycine helps reduce the incidence and severity of age related diseases.
Some of the best outcomes of the study are as follows:
- Reduces risk of obesity
- Reduces risk of strokes
- Improves bladder function
- Reduces risk of diabetes
- Reduces risk of cancer
- Reduces risk of metabolic disorder
- Reduces fatigue levels
- Improves brain function
- Improves sleep quality & reduces insomnia
Glycine & NAC
Both glycine and N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) are precursors to glutathione production within the body.
Glutathione, is the major antioxidant made and used by our body to eliminate toxicity.
In a randomised clinical trial, the results of supplementing with glycine in conjunction with N-Acetylcysteine were exceptional.
The name of the study says it all…
