Glycine for a calm brain
Posted by tigercho on Aug 30, 2012
I originally bought this for gall bladder problems, but it turns out to be a very effective natural sedative and gut healing nutrient. I sleep like a baby and you don't need all that much to get that effect.
Good for hypoglycemia
Posted by Reviewer1239444 on Sep 22, 2010
Every morning I add a hefty spoonful of this stuff to my shake and it has made a difference! I've noticed that the hypoglycemia attacks are much less frequent, and when they do occur they're not as severe. However, I do need an entire spoonful to make a difference. When I first started taking it I'd use less than a teaspoon, but that didn't help much. You may not need as much as I do though; my hypoglycemia can be pretty bad.

I use this for stress relief along with gaba. It works.

not a sleeping aid

As a sleeping aid its useless for me - I kept me awake. Good for more energy.
Helps w/ sleep

This really seems to help w/ sleep for 2 of us who struggle. My only concern is that I read online that taking individual amino acids could tax the liver and/or kidneys so I will be talking to a practitioner about this.
Average for sleep

Using to help with insomnia and combine it with GABA powder, Taurine powder, and Inositol. It helps but doesn't quite keep me asleep.
Surprising effect, better when combined with gaba

When i combine this with pharmagaba before sleep its glorious! Great sleep all night. Taking it alone and i end up waking up a few times a night though i fall asleep quicker. I like to take 1g when i wake up as well. Has a good effect on me!
