Alanine

Active ingredient description

The alanine is an a-amino acid and the L-stereoisomer is one of the 24 protein amino acids encoded by the human genetic code. The a-carbon of alanine is a methyl group (-CH3). Based on this characteristic, alanine is classified as “non-polar” or “hydrophobic” amino acid. Also the methyl alanine is relatively chemically inert, which means that the alanine almost never involved in the functionality of the proteins, but is usually a structural part of the proteins, without being part of the “active site” of them.
