    • Benefits of Glycine Supplementation

      BENEFITS OF GLYCINE
      Pharmacologic Category: Supplement


      General Information: Glycine is, structurally, the simplest amino acid that has been discovered. It was one of the earliest amino acids to be isolated from gelatin back in 1820. Glycine is one of the nonessential amino acids for mammals; meaning that they can create it internally from two other amino acids: serine and threonine (1).

      Glycine is found principally in gelatin and silk fibroin. It’s been used therapeutically as a nutrient, and also functions as a rapid inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system (CNS) (2). Although glycine is both a simple and nonessential amino acid; experimental animals on low-glycine diets show reduced growth (1, 2). The average adult will ingest 3 to 5 grams of glycine daily from dietary sources (1). Glycine is an amino acid that’s involved in the production of DNA, phospholipids, and collagen. It’s also involved in the release of energy (3).

      Glycine for joint repair: Glycine plays a vital role in collagen formation. It’s an important component for promoting joint, tendon, and ligament function and growth (4). Roughly 1/3 of collagen in the body is composed of glycine, and collagen is critical for the formation of the connective tissues that keep joints flexible and capable of successfully withstanding shocks (5).

      Glycine and muscle growth: The body uses glycine during the biosynthesis of creatine; which supplies all muscles with a source of fuel to repair damage and grows stronger (6). It also provides cells with energy due to its role in converting dietary nutrient to help feed muscle tissues and boost:

      • Endurance
      • Strength
      • Performance

      Glycine also benefits hormone production and regulation. It helps the body to naturally synthesize steroid hormones essential to regulating both the fat to muscle ratio and controlling energy expenditure (7).

      Can have a calming effect on the brain: Glycine will work with other amino acids, including taurine and gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA), to act as an inhibitory neurotransmitter (8). This role in nerve and neurotransmitter functions has implications for improving; sleep quality, mental performance, moods, memory, and behavior. Some evidence suggests that glycine may help reduce hyperactivity in the brain and play an effective role in the treatment and prevention of certain mental disorders, such as learning disabilities, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and epilepsy (8). Other studies have demonstrated that glycine can help minimize psychotic symptoms and seizures when used with other supplements as part of a treatment plan for neurological illness (9, 10).

      Assists digestion: Amino acids, including glycine, help to rebuild the tissue that lines the digestive tract (11); keeping bacteria and food particles contained inside the gut, rather than exiting through tiny openings that pass this matter into the bloodstream where it can trigger an inflammatory response (12,13)). Glycine plays a role in forming the two most important substances in the gut lining: collagen and gelatin (12, 13).

      Inside the GI tract; glycine will be utilized as a metabolic fuel (14). It’s required in the production of bile (to break down fats), nucleic acids, creatine phosphate and the porphyrins used to break down nutrients (15). It helps move glycogen to the cells for the production of ATP for energy (15). Studies show that glycine may help stabilize blood sugar levels, preventing food cravings and fatigue (16).

      Aging: Glycine is used to produce glutathione, an antioxidant that prevents cell damage and several signs of aging. A paper published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition concluded that, while glutathione deficiency in the elderly occurs because of a distinct reduction in glutathione synthesis, supplementing the diet with the glutathione precursors cysteine (NAC) and glycine completely restore normal glutathione production (17).

      What is this supplement used for? Glycine plays a role in:

      • The production of human growth hormone (18)
      • Preventing sarcopenia (muscle wasting or deterioration) (19)
      • Improving sleep quality (19)
      • Mental performance and memory (9, 10)
      • Protecting skin from signs of aging (17)
      • Protecting collagen in joints and reducing joint pain (5)
      • Boosting energy levels (15)
      • Stabilizing blood sugar (16)

      Who shouldn’t take this supplement? Due to a lack of studies on the safety of glycine during pregnancy and breastfeeding it would be best for women who are pregnant or nursing to avoid using it.

      What are the precautions when taking this supplement? People being treated with clozapine should avoid taking glycine (20).

      What are some possible side effects of this supplement? A small number of individuals have reported experiencing slight sedation after using glycine (21).

      How is it best taken? Glycine can be taken either orally or by intramuscular injection.

      What do I do if I miss a dose? If you do miss a dose; it’s best to take it as soon as you remember. Although, if it’s almost time for the next dose, just skip the missed one and take your next scheduled dose. Don’t take two doses at the same time.

      How should I store this supplement? Store glycine at between 68°F to 77°F (20°C to 25°C) and keep it away from heat, moisture, and light. Keep all medicines out of the reach of children. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Do not flush unused medications or pour down a sink or drain.

      General statements: Do not share or take anyone else's medicine. Talk with your healthcare provider before starting any new medicine, including over-the-counter, natural products, or vitamins. This patient information summarizes the most important information about your medication; if you would like more information, talk with your doctor.

        I've never tried it, it does sound like a pretty safe sweetener. I do need to do more research on it though.

        You don't use a script to buy it, they both have really good reviews. When I get home tonight I'm going to do a little more research and decide which one to order.

        LOL, I can't stand anything in my coffee, only black. I'm going to try glycine powder, I don't believe I'll feel any benefit from it. If I do, my stack will no longer be simplified.

        HaHa, well I pay attention to all your posts you offer a lot of good advice.

        I to have a big box of supplements I've tried and after a month or two gave up on them. I'm always tuning my supplement and NO stacks.

        I'm still hoping you'll give us some feedback on the sleep aid you ordered when it comes in.
        I'm trying a new one. Bupropion Hydrochloride extended release 150mg.
        I've only used it for two nights so I'm not ready to give a report but so far so good.

        Hi Nelson,
        Yes. I take it at 8pm and by 10 I can feel its effect. It is mild stronger than 100mg 5-HTP tryptophan but not as strong as 3mg Melatonin.
        With me Melatonin lingers to long in the mornings.

        I suffer from late evening anxiety it is mild but enough to keep me from falling asleep. If there is any drama in my life I can not shut my brain down. Whiskey works but we all know where that can lead.

        Do you see anything wrong with using Wellbutrin as a sleep aid? I don't need it every night. I always try self talk and breathing exersizes to deal with the anxiety. 80% of the time that works.

        I to have a big box of supplements I've tried and after a month or two gave up on them. I'm always tuning my supplement and NO stacks.

        I'm still hoping you'll give us some feedback on the sleep aid you ordered when it comes in.
        I'm trying a new one. Bupropion Hydrochloride extended release 150mg.
        I've only used it for two nights so I'm not ready to give a report but so far so good.
        My ordered from reliable RX got stopped in customs and rejected. They told me they will send me a new order, no cost to me. I'm hoping it won't take too long.

        I started supplementing with bone broth this year, so far I've been only taking it after my workouts.

        Thinking of giving it a try and have been looking at cost.
        Vince clearly has the cheapest source...
        WAAAAAAY cheaper than caps.....
        Getting bulk....
        You can get your own capper and gel caps and make your own (for cheap) if you want caps, or just spoon it out.
        BTW what is the dif between the bulk glycine and glycine HCL??
