L-Threonine is an essential amino acid that occurs naturally in an active form. L-Threonine can be found in eggs, milk, gelatin, and other proteins. L-Threonine stimulates the immune system, promotes thymus growth and activity, and contributes to the formation of enamel, collagen, and elastin. L-Threonine may also help control fat buildup in the liver.
L-Threonine is a precursor to glycine and serine and therefore present in the heart, central nervous system, and skeletal system. L-Threonine helps maintain a proper protein balance in the body.
