Glycine is not an essential amino acid, so can be made in the body, however under certain circumstances, the requirements are increased beyond the ability of the body to supply - this is when glycine must be provided in the diet. Supports ligament and tendon health. Supports the nervous system. Supports energy. Glycine also functions as a calming neurotransmitter in the brain, where it facilitates nerve impulses. Gluten Free.

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, hemaglobin 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.
Normal Metabolic Role: As well as being involved in protein synthesis, glycine is a precursor for a number of important biochemical's. It is important for conjugation reactions in the liver, where it helps in the detoxification of foreign compounds.
Sports Uses: Glycine has been used in preparations containing methionine and arginine as a supplement to increase anaerobic performance. The rationale for its use is that this combination of amino acids form the precursors for creatine. It is also likely that the combination will elevate plasma glucose levels. Glycine also improves iron absorption. Creatine is synthesised from the amino acids glycine, methionine and arginine.
Daily Requirements of Glycine: Glycine is not an essential amino acid, so it can be synthesized in the body. Under normal circumstances, the body can synthesize sufficient glycine to satisfy demands. However, under some circumstances, the requirements are increased beyond the ability of the body to supply - this is when glycine must be provided in the diet.
