Don’t know why on earth I would be discussing ‘Glassing’? I have a hunch. I was supposed to be doing a deep dive into Taurine & Glycine & their CNS effects for the latest Update in Under 30 and due to a technical glitch we produced a software generated transcript from my first attempt at the audio recording. We’ve never done this before and it seems to suggest, I have an accent and I’m a little mortified. I wasn’t under some delusion that my utterance was universal…my speech narrows my origins to certainly the ‘bottom of the globe’, but, ‘Strewth Sheila, how does any of yous guys understand me??!’
So we’re giving away 3 free copies of this recording to the first 3 individuals who can correctly translate the following from that transcript!:
“In fact, if we go back to their chemistry, you might recall that Glassing, well I refer to it as the naked amino acid. It refers to the fact that Glassing is the amino acid in its most stripped back form. It actually doesn’t have a side chain, which of course all other aminos do. So therefore it doesn’t have eyes and ears. It doesn’t have an Alan O’Day form.”
What?! Yes it took me a while to work it out…and I WAS THE PERSON IT WAS QUOTING!! So while I am currently using a medium released from my regional rhino-challenged speech, let me tell you why I am right into ‘Glassing’ as CNS support and as a sleep aid for many patients. Ever listen to the long list of enviable actions Melatonin has on the brain and think…’gee I wish we had something that wasn’t a hormone that could do that?’…hello Glassing, I mean Glycine. SCN sensitising, circadian entrainment, sleep architecture improvement without being a sedative or hypnotic…just to name a few. And guess what? The overlap between these two even extends to their behaviour within the upper GIT! Both of course being shown to be helpful in aiding the healing and recovery of function and integrity in the stomach. What else dose it do and how can we use it to its fullest benefit? The answers are in our latest instalment, A Fresh Look: Taurine & Glycine In The CNS.
And you’ll be pleased to know, the transcript experience has certainly got me paying more attention to my enunciation than ever before. So you’ll understand every word!
Maybe my parents really were just being kind when they said, ‘Everyone sent their kids to elocution lessons back then, it wasn’t because we thought you specifically needed help” 🤣😂
The latest Update in Under 30 has landed!!!
