An essential amino acid and precursor to the inhibitory neurotransmitter glycine. Threonine is able to cross the blood-brain barrier and can be used as a supplement to contribute to the anxiolytic properties of our inhibitory system, particularly in times of stress. Vitamin B6 is an important cofactor in threonine metabolism.
Helps to maintain the correct balance of protein in the body Can be found in the heart, skeletal muscle, central nervous system Assists in preventing fatty buildup in the liver Aids in the production of antibodies to enhancing the immune system Important constituent of collagen, elastin, and enamel protein Deficiency can cause a "fat allergy", which would show up as indigestion, intestinal malfunction, and a sore throat, as if a cold were coming on.
