What Is Glycine?

In clinical research, the essential amino acid, glycine, has been shown to have a calming effect on the brain. To provide the maximum benefits, we formulated our Glycine with 1000 mg, a significantly higher dose than many traditional glycine supplements.

Our Glycine supplement offers calming sleep support and whole-body health benefits in easy-to-swallow 1000-mg capsules.

Glycine Benefits

  • Promotes relaxation

Healthy Sleep with Glycine

A good night’s sleep is one of the most effective ways to take care of our bodies. But hectic lifestyles, exposure to harmful blue light and more have impacted our sleep habits. Glycine offers sleep and relaxation support and so much more in an easy-to-swallow 1000-mg capsule.

Glycine is the simplest of all amino acids. It can be made by the body, but since it doesn’t appear to meet the body’s requirements at all times, it’s considered by some to be semi-essential.1

Most of the glycine in the body becomes incorporated in proteins, but free glycine acts as a neurotransmitter involved in regulating appetite, behavior and general homeostasis.2 It has fundamental roles in support of healthy gene expression, cellular antioxidant processes, detoxification, immune function, growth, development, metabolism and survival.2 Like other one-carbon molecules, glycine has been linked to longevity in certain species.3,4
