Glycine is the most plentiful amino acid in the body, and is the simplest stable amino acid. It is a non-essential amino acid that can be produced by the body, but is also consumed through our diets in various food sources such as meat, fish, dairy and legumes.
Glycine acts as a building block for specific proteins, including serving as a key component of collagen - a protein giving structure to bones, skin, muscles and other connective tissues.
As well as this Glycine plays a role in nerve signal transmission and also in clearing toxins from the body. It is one of 3 amino acids that the body uses to make glutathione - a powerful antioxidant to protect your cells from oxidative stress.
A component of creatine, L-Glycine is widely used in sports nutrition, and is a popular preworkout ingredient for assisting energy to the muscles.
L-Glycine powder is suitable for anyone looking to increase their intake of glycine.
