Glycine--found in Collagen--is an essential amino acid
So while we’re on the topic of optimizing your best Protein/Good Fat choices to get IN your MICROnutrients so that you can be a good fat-burner and feel energized…
There’s a cellular body process that you can support for cellular energy & routine detoxification…called Methylation.
And the amino acid Glycine--found in Collagen--helps to fill in an often-missing ingredient to power this cellular process.
Nutrition researchers Dr. Chris Masterjohn, Alex Leaf and Vladimir Heiskanen, share in a fabulous panel on Glycine (one of the main amino acids in Collagen)…that the roles of Glycine (found in Collagen) include:
"...detoxification, glutathione synthesis, heme synthesis, creatine synthesis, collagen synthesis, removal of intermediates when metabolic pathways are backed up, and it acts as a calming neurotransmitter."
And the Weston A. Price Foundation pulls together different research to share that the amino acid Glycine (found in Collagen) improves your ability to digest protein, which affects your health and energy on a myriad of levels.
And a little bit of it with every meal can help you regulate your blood glucose levels, too.
Plus: Collagen is found in connective tissue & helps build your connective tissue--and you can add it to your diet by taking a Hydrolyzed Collagen/Glycine supplement and by frequently eating the skin of animal protein, too.
So many fabulous benefits, right?
I'm going to share how you can rock Hydrolyzed Collagen/Glycine on a meal-by-meal basis.
Bone Broth is OUT...Hydrolyzed Collagen/Glycine is IN
And briefly, I wanted to share that the PHD program recommends Bone Broth as a main source of Calcium and Collagen.
Bone Broth actually does NOT contain a lot of calcium. This is something that’s been updated since the publishing of their book.
And when it comes to youthfulness--the most body-absorbable form of Collagen is supplemental Hydrolyzed Collagen (in combo with sulfur-rich Veggies, Vitamin A & C)--only this form has been shown to be helpful with building skin elasticity (not bone broth)...
Plus, the amount of Glycine found in Bone Broth varies greatly--so if you're looking to get IN your Glycine...homemade & many (although not all) store-bought Bone Broths are a wild card in this area.
Additionally--you're likely to get more minerals in soup by making a mineral-rich Veggie Broth, than by making Bone Broth.
So if Bone Broth is OUT...what's IN?
Please see the previous Micro section for better Calcium sources…and here, let’s talk Collagen! And why you want to get Hydrolyzed Collagen/Glycine on a Daily basis.
