Reviews of Advocare Flex Active Ingredients
L-Proline is extremely important for the proper functioning of joints and tendons and also helps maintain and strengthen heart muscles. L-Proline is a major amino acid found in cartilage and is important for maintaining youthful skin as well as repair of muscle, connective tissue and skin damage.
Glycine is an amino acid that your body uses to create proteins, which it needs for the growth and maintenance of tissue and for making important substances, such as hormones and enzymes.
Glycine is one of three amino acids that your body uses to make glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect your cells against oxidative damage caused by free radicals, which are thought to underlie many diseases (1Trusted Source).
L-serine is an amino acid with a range of crucial roles. As a supplement, people use it for brain protection, mental health, and skin appearance. However, the available clinical research is scarce. Read on to learn more about L-serine roles, potential benefits, dosage, and side effects.
Threonine is an essential amino acid. Amino acids are the building blocks the body uses to make proteins. The "essential" amino acids are those that cannot be made by the body and must be obtained from the diet.
Methionine is an amino acid. Amino acids are the building blocks that our bodies use to make proteins. Methionine is found in meat, fish, and dairy products. It plays an important role in the many functions within the body.
Histidine is an essential amino acid that plays a role in protein building and is a precursor to histamine production. Because of this, it works to address upper respiratory concerns. Its anti-inflammatory properties help ease joint pain and stiffness, and its antifungal properties help ease certain infections.
