What is L-Glycine Powder?
Glycine is a non-essential amino acid necessary in the formation of muscle tissue. Glycine also helps the body convert glucose into energy. It also assists in the regulation of blood sugar levels, essential for a healthy and normally functioning digestive system. Primary sources are protein-rich foods, including meat, fish, dairy, and legumes. 35% of the collagen in the human body is comprised of Glycine.
Potential Benefits of L-Glycine:
- May increase creatine production †
- May increase collagen function †
- May improve sleep quality †
How Does L-Glycine Work?
Glycine helps prevent the breakdown of muscle by boosting the body's levels of creatine. Creatine is a compound that helps to build muscle mass and restore ADP (Adenosine diphosphate) to ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Because it is the primary amino acid in collagen, it strengthens skin, cartilage, blood, bones, and ligaments, not just muscles. Glycine helps wounds heal and protects the skin from UV rays, oxidation, and free radical damage. Glycine has also been shown to stimulate the production of serotonin, a chemical found in the brain that makes people feel "good." Additionally, supplementing with Glycine may reduce the level of insulin resistance, something that induces high blood sugar.

I take this first thing when I wake up, with liquid L-carnitine and it jump starts my thinking process for my job. So, I'm definitely enjoying it. Recommend trying it. It helps for retaining memory as well, which I've had issues with in the past. Overall great.
