Glycine is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that supports relaxation and healthy stress management. It also enhances detoxification and helps modulate cytokines that are associated with obesity.

The amino acid glycine plays a key role in maintaining a healthy central nervous system (CNS). It is considered one of the most important inhibitory neurotransmitters in the CNS, particularly in the brainstem and spinal cord. Glycine can help improve memory retrieval in individuals with a wide variety of sleep-depriving conditions, such as jet lag and overwork. The benefits of glycine are not just limited to the CNS. Glycine also plays a key role in phase II liver detoxification by having a direct effect on toxin elimination or by increasing the level of glutathione. Glycine also helps modulate cytokines associated with obesity.

Glycine is one of three amino acids needed to produce creatine, which in turn supplies energy to muscle and nerve cells. The other two amino acids are arginine and methionine. High concentrations of glycine are found in the muscles, the skin, and other connective tissues. Approximately 30 percent of collagen is composed of glycine.

Glycine plays an important role in supporting a healthy digestive system by helping to regulate the synthesis of bile acid, which the body uses to digest fats. Glycine also plays a role in regulating the utilization of glucose during energy production.

Helps me

by Alan -

I take this to help with anxiety. Must be taken every day. After a few weeks it gets in your system good and takes the edge off. I'm able to function fine without any distractions and only have to take a heavier sedative as needed. Feels great not to have tons of stuff in my system and this product helps me with that. I take only one per day.

Glycine for food allergies

by DJ -

I have many allergies. If I start sneezing and sniffling I take 2 capsules 3 times a day and it works like magic. I can't go through a day without it.
