Glycine is the smallest and simplest amino acid, making it versatile for use in a wide range of functions. Glycine is necessary for the production of glutathione, DNA, creatine, bile, hemoglobin, and most proteins. It also helps to promote glycogen storage, thereby making glucose readily available for energy production. Glycine also functions as a calming neurotransmitter in the brain, where it facilitates nerve impulses and is important for the maintenance of healthy sleep patterns.

Suggested Use

Take 1/4 - 3/4 level teaspoon daily mixed in water or juice, preferably on an empty stomach.

It really helps me to sleep better, but using it I have more weight.

The most beneficial Amino Acids are Glycine, Taurine, Beta-Alanine, Citrulline and Lysine.

Glycine helps to reduce blood homocysteine if you eat too much methionine. You get a lot of methionine from animal protein, like chicken, eggs, milk and cheese. Rodents live longer when given more glycine and less methionine. Probably humans too. . . Click YES if I was of any benefit. . . Other amino acids: Taurine prevents cramps.. Beta-Alanine is an efficient building block for Carnosine, buying ready-made Carnosine is much more expensive. Citrulline is a better source of Arginine than Arginine, it stays in the body longer. Lysine prevents Cold Sores = Herpes Simplex Types 1 and 2.

Helps me sleep so well and I am aware of my dreams again, so nice. I can only take a tip of a tea spoon, because it detoxes a lot when you have lyme disease!

I purchase supplements from iHerb generally once a week and have done for the past 3 years. I read reviews carefully, and go through every detail of the ingredients. I was prescribed a glycine/glutamine powder product by my Naturopath. Unfortunately his products are very expensive and I was looking for an equivalent. By rights, I was able to achieve this. I purchased this brand, based on previous experience of Now Foods brand. It says it contains NOTHING but Glycine. This powder is incredibly sweet, and I am very disappointed that as a consumer, you cannot trust what is written on a label. The glycine powder I was previously taking was not sweet at all, but quite chalky. I do not eat/consume sugar in any form. I am very upset at the misleading information regarding this product. And why oh why, do we need to have sugar/sweetener in a supplement?? I will not purchase again, and shame on you Now Foods for blatantly lying.

fanatastic product, helps with falling asleep, brings down feelings of stress and seems to boost the production of gall and so helps digestion. amazing for such a simple and cheap supplement. And its powder, so no unwanted additives
