Details

Glycine is a sweet-tasting, non-essential amino acid that was first isolated in 1820 from gelatin and is also found in good quantity in silk fibroin. This non-essential nutrient can be manufactured from Serine and Threonine. Glycine is required to build protein in the body and in the synthesis of nucleic acids, the construction of RNA as well as DNA, bile acids and other amino acids in the body. It is further found to be useful in aiding the absorption of calcium in the body. Glycine helps in retarding degeneration of muscles since it helps to supply extra creatine in the body. Glycine is also found in fairly large amounts in the prostate fluid and may for this reason be important in prostate health. The Glycine amino acid is also used by the nervous system and its function as an inhibitory neurotransmitter makes it important to help prevent epileptic seizures and is also used in the treatment of manic depression and hyperactivity.

Glycine is the simplest amino acid. At Jo Mar Labs it is available in both powder and capsule form. The powder is soluble in water and weighs about 4.6 grams per level measuring teaspoon. The powder is so sweet in taste that it is sometimes added to food as a sweetener.

*In the October, 2000, publication of "Alternatives" Dr. David Williams discusses a study done on stroke victims. The study shows that, "those [people] given between 1.0 and 2.0 grams of glycine had less severe disabilities and experienced a more favorable functional outcome [after a stroke]." *if you want a copy of this article please contact: Alternatives ISSN#0893-5025 Mountain Home Publishing PO Box 60004 Potomac, MD 20854
