Threonine Overview

L-Threonine is an essential amino acid, meaning it must be obtained through the diet since the body cannot produce it on its own. It plays a crucial role in supporting overall health and well-being. L-Threonine is involved in protein synthesis, aiding in the formation of collagen, elastin, and muscle tissue. It also contributes to maintaining proper immune function and balancing nitrogen levels within the body.
