L-Glycine Free Form Vegetarian - 1 lb.
Glycine is a non-essential amino acid and has the simplest structure of all amino acids, allowing it to fit easily within protein chains and make space for structurally larger amino acids. This feature makes it very important for specific bodily function. Glycine is used to help create muscle tissue and convert glucose into energy. It is also essential to maintaining healthy central nervous and digestive systems, and has recently been shown to provide protection from some types of cancer.

Glycine is considered a glucogenic amino acid, which means it helps supply the body with glucose needed for energy. It helps regulate blood sugar levels, and thus glycine supplementation may be useful for treating symptoms characterized by low energy and fatigue, such as hypoglycemia, anemia, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

It is necessary for central nervous system function, & new research has shown that this amino acid can help inhibit the neurotransmitters that cause seizure activity, hyperactivity, and manic, bipolar depression. Glycine is converted to another neurotransmitter, serine, as the body needs, and may be beneficial in the management of schizophrenia. Studies have shown that glycine also helps improve memory loss in those that suffer from a wide variety of sleep-depriving conditions, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, jet lag, and working too hard.

Glycine is essential for a healthy, normally functioning digestive system. It helps regulate the synthesis of the bile acid used to digest fats, and is included in many commercial gastric antacid agents. It has been shown to support the thyroid, and is helpful for treating Hajimoto's disease.
