Health function: General health. Supplemental glycine may have antispastic activity. Very early findings suggest it may also have antipsychotic activity, as well as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities.
Glycine, provided by Douglas Laboratories, supplies 500 mg of the amino acid in each capsule.
Amino acids have many functions in the body. They are the building blocks for all body proteins—structural proteins that build muscle, connective tissues, bones and other structures, and functional proteins in the form of thousands of metabolically active enzymes. Amino acids provide the body with the nitrogen that is essential for growth and maintenance of all tissues and structures. Proteins and amino acids also serve as a source of energy, providing about 4 calories per gram.
Aside from these general functions, individual amino acids also have specific functions in many aspects of human physiology and biochemistry. Amino acids serve as precursors for many nitrogenous substances. These include heme, purines, pyrimidines, hormones, and neuro-transmitters, including biologically active peptides. In addition, many proteins contain amino acids that have been modified for a specific function, e.g., calcium binding or collagen cross-linking.
Glycine plays important roles in glutathione synthesis, bile production and the synthesis of nucleic acids. It is thought to have special importance in supporting neurological, gastrointestinal and connective tissue health.
