I made a new searchable #database for you!
#Methionine and #glycine are two #aminoacids found in the foods we eat that can have an enormous impact on our #mental, #emotional, and #physical #health.
Both of them are needed to protect our tissues from wear and tear as we age, to help us heal well when we get injured, and to prevent degenerative diseases like #diabetes, #heartdisease, #stroke, and #cancer.
But they also have unique functions that make it important to balance them. Methionine helps prevent #fattyliver disease, which affects an estimated 70 million Americans. It makes us mentally more flexible, and can help cool our #anxiety or lift us from #depression when our minds are rigidly #ruminating on #negativethoughts. Glycine helps stabilize our #bloodsugar. It helps stabilize our mind, to prevent us from drifting into endless distractions. It promotes #healthysleep, and it revitalizes our skin and bones.
The reason it is important to balance these amino acids is that consuming too much methionine can deplete our glycine levels. Methionine is especially abundant in eggs, dairy, meat, poultry, and fish. Glycine is especially abundant in skin and bones. While our ancestors tended to eat #nosetotail making liberal use of the skin and bones of the animals they ate, we tend to eat the meat and throw out the skin and bones. For example, skinless, boneless chicken breast is rich in methionine, but the glycine-rich skin and bones have been removed.
Click the link to access my new, free, fun, informative searchable database of the methionine/glycine balance of almost 4000 foods. You can rank foods by their glycine-to-methionine ratio, or by the amount of each of these two amino acids per 100 grams of food, per 100 Calories, or per 100 grams of total protein.
Have fun! 😀-- #ancestralhealth #nosetotail #westonprice #paleodiet #paleo
