Glycine is the smallest of amino acid molecules, yet extremely important in liver detoxification pathways, production of glutathione, DNA, and hemoglobin. In addition, it is an inhibitory neurotransmitter which has recently been shown to support healthy neurological function. It is an important component necessary for healthy REM and delta sleep patterns. Glycine is especially helpful in improving the taste of Custom Amino Acids and Custom Vitamin/Mineral Formulas. It has a sweet taste and can be used to sweeten drinks or powdered supplements without altering blood glucose levels. Glycine Sticks are convenient single-serve packets containing 3 grams of glycine. Glycine is a naturally sweet amino acid found in proteins, especially collagen, and can be used to sweeten coffee or tea.
 

Uses: 

1) Joint and cartilage repair and protection. Joints are made primarily of collagen. In the collagen matrix, glycine occupies every third position. Without adequate glycine, the body cannot make collagen for joint repair and function.

2) Healthy neurological function. Glycine is a major inhibitory transmitter in the central nervous system. Glycine exerts postsynaptic inhibition that is important for control of excitability of motor neurons, auditory processing, pain transmission and other functions. 

3) Healthy sleep. Studies show that 3 grams of glycine at bedtime improved sleep quality, shortened sleep latency, and lessened daytime sleepiness in healthy adult volunteers. The onset of sleep involves a decrease in core body temperature- a mechanism aided by glycine.
