Frequently Asked Questions

What does Pruvin taste like?

Pruvin is made with stevia leaf extract and some natural flavors including mango, raspberry and vanilla. These ingredients will contribute to a sweet fruity taste.

What is Glycine & N-acetylcysteine?

Glycine is one of 11 non-essential amino acids required by the body, whereas N-Acetylcysteine, is a derivative of Cysteine (another non-essential amino acid required by the body). Glycine and Cysteine are used by the body to produce glutathione, a compound that helps to protect cells from oxidative stress.

How are the amino acids in Pruvin (Glycine and Cysteine) different from other amino acids that our bodies require?

The human body requires 20 amino acids (the building blocks of protein) to function. Of these, nine are essential, meaning that they must be obtained through the diet. The other 11 amino acids are non-essential and can be made by our bodies. Glycine and Cysteine are both examples of non-essential amino acids that can be made by our bodies, but tend to become less available in our cells as we age.
