NOW Glycine Powder is pharmaceutical grade (USP).
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.
As a dietary supplement, take a 1/4 level teaspoon mixed in water or juice 1 to 3 times daily. Consider taking these other NOW products: Whey Protein, L-Cysteine and GliSODin.
100% Pure. 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.
Store in a cool, dry place after opening.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I take this just before bed along with Gaba and Taurine and it makes me relaxed and sleepy, the taste is not too bad either.
Studies have shown this to be very liver protective. Great product and cheap.
