And if at the beginning of pregnancy, not knowing about her presence, she allowed herself to take some pill or drink a little alcohol, it sometimes turns into a real tragedy. And no matter what the doctor assures her that it will not affect the child's health, fears during pregnancy are often irrational.

As a result, the woman does not sleep during the day it irritable or tearful, disturbed appetite. Appetite may or completely absent, or, on the contrary, to be increased - a woman "seizes" their fears and stress.

As glycine acts on pregnant women

Glycine - an amino acid that is part of the fabric of the human body. That is why it has practically no contraindications for use. The action of glycine is that it activates metabolic processes in nerve cells (neurons) and protects them from the effects of toxins and free radicals and simultaneously has an inhibitory effect on the central nervous system (CNS).

The inhibitory effect of glycine on the CNS is due to the fact that he does not miss the adrenaline into neurons, which has a powerful stimulating effect. In addition, glycine increases neuronal GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), which also has an inhibiting effect on the CNS.

In nerve cells under the influence of glycine enhanced ability to absorb glucose. As a result, in the cell increases the amount of energy activates all types of metabolism, including the protein - it helps to restore protein metabolism neurons.

Under the influence of glycine brain cells of pregnant women "come alive", get rid of the influence of toxic substances, the exciting action of adrenaline and begin to function in the same (as before pregnancy) mode. Glycine helps relieve excitement calms, stimulates mental performance and also reduced the process of falling asleep and night sleep Dreams: how to understand our dreams  Dreams: how to understand our dreams

Why pregnant women should not take glycine without prescription

Pregnant women do not take any pills without a prescription. As for glycine, he has only one official Contraindications - hypersensitivity to its components. If you suspect a hypersensitivity drug taking in any case impossible, as it can cause severe allergic reactions.

But during pregnancy must pay attention also to the fact that glycine can reduce the blood pressure (BP) as inhibits the action of adrenaline (epinephrine causes vasoconstriction and increase blood pressure). And during pregnancy, blood pressure tends to extremes, sometimes significant. Therefore, the tendency to low blood pressure or strong differences of glycine it is not prescribed. This can be dangerous not only for the women but also to the fetus, as insufficient blood flow to his brain can cause disorders associated with hypoxia (lack of oxygen) brain. If the condition of hypoxia lasts long, the child may develop irreversible changes in the central nervous system.
