Glycine: Overdosing is not described in the literature

 glycine overdose
 In the scientific literature there is no description overdose glycine, because this amino acid is the drug that is contained in the human body - it is involved in the metabolism of the brain cells. But it is wrong to assume that the more glycine to take, so it is more efficient.

 Glycine: Overdosing is not described in the literature

On what is the effect of glycine

Glycine (aminoacetic acid) is found in many biologically active substances and proteins as an amino acid. Glycine has a positive effect on metabolism Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting  Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting
   cells in the tissue of the brain and spinal cord (neurons), increasing their capacity in glucose uptake. Assimilation of additional amounts of glucose in turn helps to activate all other kinds of metabolism in the central nervous system (CNS). For the recovery of neurons following various effects (trauma, intoxication, stroke and so on) is very important metabolic activation protein, and this contributes to glycine. It also protects neurons from damage by various toxins and free radicals.

Glycine also inhibits the action of adrenaline - a substance that causes the body to "combat readiness" by activating an ancient mechanism of resistance to the enemy, which can be briefly described as "fight or flight". Under the action of adrenaline constricted blood vessels, increased blood pressure (BP), heart rate increases, the number of respiratory movements, the activities of the central nervous system is activated. Suppressing effect of adrenaline, Glycine has a calming effect, it reduces all vegetovascular symptoms: decreased blood pressure, decreased tachycardia Tachycardia - the body to the limit?  Tachycardia - the body to the limit?
 Restored the normal number of respiratory movements, increased sweating passes. But, in addition, glycine promotes the development of an additional amount of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), which also has an inhibitory effect on the CNS.

Thus, glycine has neuroprotective (protects neurons), detoxifying, anti-oxidant, soothing effect on the central nervous system. It operates fairly slowly, however, the effectiveness of the drug is proved by numerous studies. It soothes, relieves mental stress, aggression, conflict, increases their chances of social adjustment. In addition, it reduces the depression Depression - a little more than a bad mood  Depression - a little more than a bad mood
 , Restores normal sleep, increases mental performance. Severe central nervous system (including stroke and the destructive effect of alcohol on the brain) it reduces the severity of brain disorders.

In what doses taken

Despite the fact that glycine is included in the tissue of the human body and can improve brain functions, it would be wrong to think that the higher the dose, the more efficient it is. Today designed instructions (including dosage) of the drug for use in various conditions and diseases. Nevertheless, more and more researchers are starting to take the view that the doses of glycine should be individualized, as different organisms need this stuff in different amounts due to the individual characteristics of metabolism.

Basically, it is used for one tablet (0, 1 g or 100mg) two to three times daily for two to four weeks. The tablet is placed under the tongue and held there until complete resorption. You can put the tablet on the cheek or grind it into a powder and also put under the tongue or cheek. After some time on the recommendation of a physician treatment can be repeated. So appoint a glycine with a decrease in mental performance, emotional and high information loads, reducing memory, concentration, as well as mental retardation in adolescents and in chronic alcoholism.

Children up to three years from the effects of perinatal (except in the second half of pregnancy, during childbirth and in the first week after birth) brain lesions and traumatic brain injury each appoint half of the pill (0, 05 g or 50 mg) two or three times a day. Treatments - one to two weeks, and then half a tablet given once a week. Throughout the course of treatment the child up to three years is prescribed 2 to 2, 6 g glycine. Children older than three years receive the same dose as adults.

When insomnia or sleep violation of glycine take 20 minutes before sleep Dreams: how to understand our dreams  Dreams: how to understand our dreams
   or just before bedtime. Children under three years are half a tablet, and over three years old and adults - on a tablet under the tongue.

Large doses of the drug are shown only in the first days after an ischemic stroke. In this case, the maximal effect of glycine is obtained from the destination in the first three to six hours after a stroke. The patient for five days administered glycine at 1 g (10 tablets of 100 mg) by dissolving it in a small amount of water. From the 6th to the 30th day of illness glycine is assigned to one or two tablets three times a day.

An overdose of high doses of glycine does not happen, but it is necessary to monitor the patient's blood pressure, since glycine may help to reduce it. If the patient has low blood pressure, in large doses, it is not necessary to appoint a glycine.
