Once again about Glycine!

Stress? How to prevent its harmful effects? In modern life it’s very important. It is no coincidence that many people asked to tell in more detail about the properties and the usage of Glycine – a drug which is known as a remedy for stress.

Unfortunately, very often, buying any medicine, we do not pay attention to the attendant leaflet. Meanwhile, even if several drugs have the same active substance, their scope of application may vary. In particular, when it comes to Glycine, its indications include an ischemic stroke in the patient information leaflet of its primary manufacturer, “MNPK “BIOTIKI”. How comes it?

Widely known amino acid glycine is a powder, and it is difficult to obtain a tablet that could provide effective help to the organism.

Glycine manufactured by “MNPK “BIOTIKI” is produced by a unique technology. In its basis there are technical solutions protected by patents of the Russian Federation (their numbers are on the pack). The drug passed the whole cycle of clinical trials; it showed good results, as well in the treatment of ischemic stroke (this is indicated in the patient information leaflet).

Glycine (recommended dose is 1 tablet 3 times a day) helps to reduce psycho-emotional tension, elevate the mood, relieve stress, normalize the falling asleep, deepen the sleep, pass through the stress easier, avoid its after-effects, and also it defends from the toxic effect of psychotropic drugs. At the same time, having a nootropic effect, the drug is not remit, but on the contrary, improves memory and concentration.

Glycine, as a tablet or powder after grinding of the tablet, is recommended to administer sublingually (under the tongue), like validol. Do not swallow the pill, or wash down with water – such treatment won’t take effect!

Glycine can be taken by the whole family. Restless kids (it can be prescribed even for infants) in 15-20 minutes after intake are able to calm down. In place of excitement comes the desire to take up a book, pencil, or paints. Pupil or student will become more thoughtful and, therefore, the memory will start to improve. And the probability that he will get enough sleep before going to the exam, and that he’ll have no unnecessary nervousness, increases.

Glycine is helpful under any adverse environmental conditions, but especially in regions where the exposure limits of phenol are exceeded. Amino acetic acid, which is contained in a tablet of Glycine, “triggers” the “own synthesis” of it in the cell, and then forms a non-toxic compound, reduces the intoxication, and eliminate a foreign substance. In the same way Glycine works during alcoholic intoxication.

Psycho-emotional excitation often becomes a source of high arterial blood pressure (BP) – one of the factors of a stroke. For the prevention of a stroke, it is worth to take Glycine (1 tablet 3 times a day during a month) for all the people over 60 years, and all hypertensive patients as a basic medication for maintaining of the normal blood pressure values.

In stressful situations, or in case of the weather changes (if you know that you can respond by the increase in blood pressure), try to put a tablet of Glycine under the tongue. Of course, you should take other antihypertensive drugs as prescribed by your doctor.

Another important risk factor for the stroke is the atherosclerosis. In middle age, regular use of Glycine can provide an additional synthesis of lecithin – substance which prevents the formation of atherosclerotic plaques – in the organism.

If the patient had had an acute stroke before the ambulance arrived, it is recommended to grind 10 tablets of Glycine and give them to the patient sublingually or transbuccally (if necessary, the tablets can be diluted in a teaspoon of water). This could greatly ease the further course of the disease; and regular use of the medicine in the future can prevent recurrent cases of the stroke. It’s also worth to take Glycine after the brain concussion.
