Support your connective tissue – with Healthwise L-Threonine. The essential amino acid L-Threonine is one of the 20 common amino acids which are used to construct proteins. Humans must obtain L-threonine from dietary sources such as beef, poultry and fish or dairy products. Some vegetable sources of L-threonine include leafy vegetables, lentils and sesame seeds, although they have much less L-threonine than meat. The human body uses L-threonine to support the production of connective tissue and to support bone plus liver health as well as the immune system.

Healthwise L-Threonine is especially beneficial for connective tissue as it is essential for the production of collagen. This means that L-Threonine may support the growth of healthy connective tissue – especially in the heart. Through its role in antibody production, L-threonine is a great support for the important body defences which is composed of specialised cells, proteins, tissue and organs. The immune system defends us against invaders, such as viruses and bacteria. As L-threonine plays a role in the production of antibodies, it assists in boosting this important natural defence mechanism. L-threonine also may support liver health by helping to minimise the accumulation of fats around the organs as well as bone health by the production of collagen. Collagen does not only support connective tissue but also skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments and bones.
