Glycine, by Seeking Health, is a unique compact amino acid essential for the structure of numerous body proteins, especially collagen.*
Glycine is the simplest of the 20 natural amino acids and the only protein amino acid that does not have chirality. The body uses it to help the liver in detoxification of compounds and for helping the synthesis of bile acids.* It is needed for the structure and function of hemoglobin and myoglobin and is an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain stem, spinal cord, and retina.* It is also an obligate co-agonist for glutamate acting at the NMDA receptor. Each vegetarian capsule supplies 500 mg of glycine.
