|What Is It?
Glycine is the simplest amino acid; its side chain consists
of just a single hydrogen atom. Because of its simplicity,
it has only one form, not two (l- or d-) like other amino
acids. It is an abundant amino acid and is not considered
essential. Supplementation with glycine, however, has
been shown to support healthy kidney and liver function
as well as nervous system health.*
Uses For Glycine
Cognitive Support: In animal studies and in a small
human study, glycine demonstrated the potential to
support memory and mental function. In another human
trial, glycine, acting as an inhibitory amino acid, had
neuroprotective effects. *
Detoxification Support: Animal studies suggest that
glycine plays a protective role for the kidneys and liver
particularly by supporting detoxification of certain
chemicals. Glycine has also been shown to moderate the
release of cytokines during times of metabolic stress.*
What Is The Source?
