Can children "Glycine"?

Glycine is an amino acid that has a nootropic effect. The mechanism of the effect of glycine on the body is as follows - the amino acid interacts with the receptors of the brain and spinal cord and reduces the number of stimulating amino acids. What leads in the first case to the removal of emotional arousal, and in the second - to the removal of increased muscle tension. In addition, the amount of GABA produced by the body increases, which is the most important inhibitory neurotransmitter of the CNS. In the process of metabolism from glycine, only water and carbon dioxide remain - which are eliminated from the body naturally.

Therefore, children need to give glycine carefully.Especially it is necessary to treat the dosage, in any case not to exceed. And watch for changes in the emotional state of the child. If he became more positive, more collected and more attentive - this is good. In the article How to take "Glycine" you can learn about dosages for adults.
