If you wondered why there are such rave reviews for Collagen Shots, there are 10 grams of pure marine extract collagen per serving – that’s a whopping 10 000 milli grams. There are 18 key amino acids within the super strength collagen.
Here is just one of them, we think you’ll be blown away by it and then when you consider there are another 17 amino acids along with vitamins and super food acai berry. Wow!! What an amazing product.
The incredible amino acid, Glycine
Glycine is used to help create muscle tissue and convert glucose into energy. It is also essential to maintaining healthy central nervous and digestive systems, and has recently been shown in helping to provide protection via antioxidants from some types of cancer.
Glycine is used in the body to help construct normal DNA and RNA strands—the genetic material needed for proper cellular function and formation. High concentrations of glycine are found not only in the muscles, but in the skin and other connective tissues as well. Almost 1/3 of collagen, which keeps the skin and connective tissue firm and flexible, is composed of glycine. (High amounts of Glycine are also found in gelatin, which is a form of denatured collagen). Without glycine the body would not be able to repair damaged tissues; the skin would become slack as it succumbed to UV rays, oxidation, and free radical damage, and wounds would never heal.
Glycine supplie the body with glucose needed for energy and helps to regulate blood sugar levels, and thus glycine supplementation may be useful for treating symptoms characterized by low energy and fatigue. It plays an important part in a healthy digestive system as it helps regulate the synthesis of the bile acid used to digest fats, and is included in many commercial gastric antacid agents.
Glycine is necessary for central nervous system function. Research has shown that this amino acid can help inhibit the neurotransmitters that cause seizure activity, hyperactivity, and manic (bipolar) depression. Glycine can also be converted to another neurotransmitter, serine, as needed, and may be beneficial in the management of schizophrenia.
Glycine also helps improve memory retrieval loss in those that suffer from a wide variety of sleep-depriving conditions, including schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, jet lag, and overwork.
Results from preliminary studies of glycine as a potential treatment for cancer have been promising, and suggest that it may help prevent the development of cancerous tumours and melanoma. Glycine also seems to play a role in keeping the prostate healthy. In one study, glycine was shown to help reduce the symptoms of prostatic hyperplasia in men. Please note this has only been in studies.
Well if you were wondering why you were seeing fantastic health benefits with Collagen Shots we think there might be a little clue in just this ingredient alone.
