Glycine is the smallest and simplest amino acid, making it versatile for use in a wide range of functions. Glycine is necessary for the production of glutathione, DNA, creatine, bile, hemoglobin, and most proteins. It also helps to promote glycogen storage, thereby making glucose readily available for energy production. Glycine also functions as a calming neurotransmitter in the brain, where it facilitates nerve impulses and is important for the maintenance of healthy sleep patterns.

Glycine is essential for many different muscle, cognitive and metabolic functions. Glycine is found in high concentrations in skin, and connective tissue of joints and muscles. It is a key amino acid used to form collagen. Approximately one third of collagen is composed of glycine.

Because glycine helps inhibit deterioration of protein tissue, it supports muscle recovery and prevents loss of cartilage in joints. Glycine also helps rebuild tissue within the digestive tract, supporting people with IBS, Crohns and Leaky Gut.
Glycine also calms nerves, via regulating nerve impulses, plus promoting restful sleep.
