Excellent Sleep Aide
Posted by Reviewer2277351 on Jul 28, 2011
I have read the other reviews. I agree with someone who wrote that having a scoop inside would make his day, funny..... Not many have mentioned how this is a fantastic sleep aide. I read about it's use in a Lyme Disease book, (the 13 top LLMD's), one LLMD wrote to use 1-3 mg of melatonin 1 hour before bed with 2-4 grams of glycine at bed time and again 2-4 grams if you awaken during the night one time. I have tried EVERYTHING, with some exaggeration, to try and fall back asleep, and this brand of glycine, in powder form has been the only natural product that has worked as well as prescription drugs. With it's use and my MD's help I am able to ween off of Klonopin from 1 mg now down to .5 mg, slow going but with it's withdrawl effects I must go slow. So this has been a real life saver for me, no exaggeration, without it I would have had to stay on the klonopin and did not want to continue that route. 4 years of it was enough... Hats off to I-herb for it's fast and easy service.....

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.

This added to GABA really helps soothe my nervous system, specifically mental. An inexpensive solution!

I take Glycine for better quality of sleep. A spoonful of this Glycine works nicely for me.
pre endurance activity

I use this for extended endurance activity with other aminos like proline and lysine. When I add glycine it really helps me feel like I have more energy later in the workout. I don't bonk, and I feel fresher. Seems to be muscle sparing and helps me switch over to fat for fuel faster.

Sweet tasting amino acid which has calming properties and also has research providing support for use in building and maintaining joint cartilage.
Glycine for a calm brain

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.
No more nocturnal panic attacks!

Glycine has been a miracle cure for my nocturnal panic attacks (caused by cortisol/adrenaline rushes when asleep). I never want to be without this now!

I use this regularly to wean off of medications for panic. Helps in getting a good nights sleep too.
