We all experience stress at some point during our busy lives, but if we are unable to manage this stress it can lead to much greater issues down the road including chronic diseases or cancer.

To manage symptoms of anxiety, insomnia, and stress, I like to recommend the amino acid, glycine.

Calming & Relaxing.

Amino acids are the building blocks of all the proteins in the body and are responsible for the formation of cells, muscle, and tissues.

Glycine, the smallest of the amino acids, is naturally produced in your body and present in small amounts in food. Sometimes this isn’t enough glycine for your body and mind to feel optimal.

Supplementing with glycine may significantly impact your overall well-being and help you feel balanced and calm.

Supports Brain Health.

The mechanism through which glycine relieves stress is its action as a neurotransmitter in the brain and spinal cord where it plays a critical role in neurotransmission.

Interestingly, studies have shown that elevating glycine concentrations in the brain can be an effective approach for treatment of schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and addiction.

More recently, research has indicated that increasing levels of glycine may also provide neuroprotection, assist in the treatment of autism spectrum disorders, and alleviate symptoms associated with pain, Parkinson’s disease, and epilepsy.

Assists in Detoxification.

Glycine is also used by the body to make glutathione, the body’s chief antioxidant and a critical component of normal detoxification processes in the liver. Glycine is often insufficient in individuals exposed to numerous toxins, which results in an abundance of damaging free radicals.

Muscle support and development.

By acting as a precursor to proteins such as collagen and creatine, glycine can support muscle, tendon, and ligament growth—this is important for everyone, but especially those who do high-intensity workouts and heavy weight-lifting.

Pure Glycine Powder offers the amino acid glycine in a powder form for flexible dosing and convenience. Although glycine is synthesized in the human body, supplemental amounts may be beneficial to help meet the body’s many biological and metabolic demands for this amino acid.

With the wide array of benefits from relief of anxiety and stress to muscle gains, glycine is one of the most effective, inexpensive, and safest supplements available.

Recommended Use

  • As a dietary supplement take 3 grams (approx. 1/2 teaspoon) with water or any other beverage one to three times a day, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
  • Glycine powder can be used post-workout for recovery and glycogen re-synthesis, especially for those following a low carb diet and who prefer to avoid post-workout carbohydrates.
