Product Overview

  • Amino Acid
  • Supports Energy Production
  • Important for DNA & RNA
  • Pharmaceutical Grade
  • GMP Quality Assured
  • A Dietary Supplement

Glycine is a non-essential amino acid and has the simplest structure of all amino acids, allowing it to fit easily within protein chains and make space for structurally larger amino acids. This feature makes it very important for specific bodily functions. Glycine is also a precursor of creatine, which is used to construct DNA and RNA. And it supports glycogen storage, thereby making more glucose available for energy production. The amino acid Glycine is non-chiral and only has one form without a D- or L- designation.

Suggested Use

As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule 1 to 3 times daily. Consider taking these other NOW products: Whey Protein, L-Cysteine and GliSODin.

Other Ingredients

Gelatin (capsule), magnesium stearate (vegetable source) and silica.

Not manufactured with wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, fish, shellfish or tree nut ingredients. Produced in a GMP facility that processes other ingredients containing these allergens.

The Glycine used in the product is Pharmaceutical Grade.


Store in a cool, dry place after opening.

Caution: For adults only. Consult physician if pregnant/nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition. Keep out of reach of children.

Newbie to Glycine

Posted by Reviewer1257444 on Feb 03, 2011

Glycine was highly recommended for anxiety and relaxing.. I have to say that this plus some magnesium helps me sleep.

Kidney disease

Posted by Reviewer3232133 on Apr 26, 2010

I'm taking 5 grams daily of Glycine due to the above specified problem as prescribed for a naturopath and well I'm everyday better even I'm bot sure if it's all due to the Glycine or to the cocktail I'm ingesting (herbs, Chinese phytotherapy and supplements). Fine product.

Excellent for sleep.

Posted by Reviewer1478579 on Nov 27, 2011

Take it pre-bed, ~3/4 grams, supported by research in healthy individuals with 'unrefreshing sleep', improves several sleep parameters.

Good for energy

Posted by Reviewer1214284 on May 01, 2010

This glycine (free form) gives me good energy, doesn't seem to provide as much energy as l-glycine at the same dose which works better for me.
