Glycine Is Key to Anti-Inflammatory Supplement : “The four horsemen of the medical apocalypse—coronary artery disease, diabetes, cancer and Alzheimer's—may be riding the same steed: inflammation.”

Medical scientists know that chronic inflammation is linked to disease. As Harvard Health Publishing puts it, “The four horsemen of the medical apocalypse—coronary artery disease, diabetes, cancer and Alzheimer's—may be riding the same steed: inflammation.” Dr. Joel Brind, a longtime medical researcher and the CEO of Natural Food Science, based in New Hamburg, has developed a simple nutritional solution to inflammation.

“The best anti-inflammatory food is bone broth or gelatin (collagen), which is rich in glycine, the main amino acid found in collagen or gelatin,” he says. “However, eating the muscle meat without the collagen of the bones actually depletes glycine from the body, thus making it—whether red meat or white—pro-inflammatory.”

Brind’s dietary supplement, sweetamine, is a convenient way to keep chronic inflammation at bay, he says. “Glycine needs to be replenished daily, as it’s a small, water-soluble nutrient that quickly cycles through the body. Because it’s used like a sweetener in tea or coffee, sweetamine simplifies that replenishing process. People who use it regularly receive the tremendous benefit of eliminating inappropriate or excessive inflammation in an easy and natural way.”
