Regular price $25.00

DESCRIPTION

Glycine is as a non-essential amino acid which can help remove toxic substances like lactic acid from the body. It may also increase the use and availability of growth hormone.

Glycine has also been shown to support cell volumizing as well as slowing down the breakdown of muscle tissue. This makes it useful in helping to heal damaged muscles or rebuilding muscle tissue in athletes who participate in strenuous workouts.

CLINICAL INFORMATION

Glycine serves many important roles in the body through structural and regulatory actions. As an amino acid, glycine plays an essential role in protein synthesis, especially collagen synthesis. A glycine molecule must represent every third amino acid in collagen for stability, and mutations that result in substitutions of glycine results in a variety of connective tissue disorders collectively known as brittle bone disease.[6] Glycine also plays a special role in enzyme structure and function by providing flexibility in their active sites, therefore allowing them to change their conformation as necessary to bind with substrates.[7][8]

Glycine is a precursor for the synthesis of several biologically important compounds, including porphyrins and heme,[9] creatine (glycine + arginine + methionine),[10] and glutathione (glycine + cysteine + glutamate),[11] and purines.
