What Is It?
Glycine is the simplest amino acid; its side chain consists of just a single hydrogen atom. Because of its simplicity, it has only one form, not two (l- or d-) like other amino acids. It is an abundant amino acid and is not considered essential.
Glycine is synthetically produced. Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate) is derived from corn dextrose fermentation. Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose.
Uses For Glycine
- Supports detoxification‡
- Promotes kidney and liver health‡
- May support nervous system health‡

Supplementation with glycine has been shown to support healthy kidney and liver function as well as nervous system health. Animal studies and a small human study indicate that glycine has the potential to support memory and mental function. In another human trial, glycine, acting as an inhibitory amino acid, had neuroprotective effects. Animal studies suggest that glycine plays a protective role for the kidneys and liver particularly by supporting detoxification of certain chemicals.‡
