Glycine offers sleep and relaxation support and so much more in an easy-to-swallow 1000-mg capsule. Glycine is the simplest of all amino acids, possessing only one carbon atom. It can be made by the body, but since it doesnt appear to meet the bodys requirements at all times, its considered by some to be semi-essential. Most of the glycine in the body becomes incorporated in proteins, but free glycine acts as a neurotransmitter involved in regulating appetite, behavior and general homeostasis. It has fundamental roles in support of healthy gene expression, cellular antioxidant processes, detoxification, immune function, growth, development, metabolism and survival. Like other one-carbon molecules, glycine has been linked to longevity in certain species. Glycine is often used as a supplement to promote relaxation and sound sleep.
