Gama Aminobutyric Acid(GABA), Glutamine and Glutamic Acid, Glutathione, Glycine

Gama Aminobutyric Acid(GABA)
It is a non essential amino acid derived from glutamic acid. It regulates the transmission of chemical impulses in the central nervous system and is, therefore, essential for brain metabolism. It is used in the treatment of epilepsy and hypertension, it induces calmness and tranquility. It is useful in reducing problems related to an enlarged prostate, by stimulating the release of the hormone prolactin from the pituitary gland.

Glutamine and Glutamic Acid
Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid. Glutamine is synthesized in certain tissues for use in others. Glutamic acid can be synthesized from a number of amino acids. Glutamine along with glucose, is a fuel for the brain cells. The second function of glutamine is to act as a detoxifier of ammonia from the brain. As it picks up ammonia, glutamic acid is reconverted to its original form of glutamine. It also plays an important role in the metabolism of ammonia. It plays a protective role in the body’s relationship with alcohol.
Glutamine deficiencies result in brain damage or dullness of brain due to excess ammonia.

Glutathione
It is a naturally occurring tripeptide consisting of three amino acids – cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine. It is of great use in the prevention and treatment of many de-generative diseases. It accomplishes this by preventing and slowing down the activity of free radicals which suppress the body’s natural immunity and hasten the ageing process. Liver damage caused by excessive intake of alcohol is also prevented by glutathione.

Glycine
It is another non essential amino acid which is a major constituent of the liver-detoxifying compound glutathione, along with cysteine and glutamic acid. It has been found in research that
glycine enhances the secretion of acid in the stomach.
