L-Threonine is an amino acid typically found in the heart, skeletal muscle and the nervous system. This amino acid is important in the formation of collagen and elastin. In combination with L-Aspartic Acid and L-Methionine it supports liver function through its lipotropic action (removes fats.) It also helps control seizures. L-Threonine is also a precursor (building block) of glycine synthesis in the spinal cord and is essential for a healthy nervous system. In Multiple Sclerosis, it was found to reduce spasticity and improve mobility, especially in the lower limbs. In one study at Massachusetts General Hospital, MS patients showed improvement. Unlike prescription antispasticity drugs, L-Threonine has no side-effects. Prescription drugs cause motor weakness and sedation.Supplement Facts
