Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

Glycine is the smallest of amino acid molecules, yet extremely important in liver detoxification pathways, production of glutathione, DNA, and hemoglobin.

  • Aids in joint and cartilage repair and protection*
  • Helps support healthy neurological function*
  • Provides an important component for healthy REM and delta sleep patterns*


Glycine has a sweet taste and can be used to sweeten drinks or powdered supplements without altering blood glucose levels.

Glycine Powder


Product Code: 00120                 Grams per Bottle: 200


Each ¼ teaspoon contains:



1000 mg


Description: Glycine Powder allows flexible dosing without capsules. Glycine is a naturally sweet amino acid found in proteins, especially collagen, and can be used to sweeten coffee of tea.


Uses: 1) Joint and cartilage repair and protection. Joints are made primarily of collagen. In the collagen matrix, glycine occupies every third position. Without adequate glycine, the body cannot make collagen for joint repair and function (1).

2) Healthy neurological function. Glycine is a major inhibitory transmitter in the central nervous system. Glycine exerts postsynaptic inhibition that is important for control of excitability of motor neurons, auditory processing, pain transmission and other functions (2)

3) Healthy sleep. Studies show that 3 grams of glycine at bedtime improved sleep quality, shortened sleep latency, and lessened daytime sleepiness in healthy adult volunteers (3). The onset of sleep involves a decrease in core body temperature- a mechanism aided by glycine (4).


Glycine is also involved in amino acid conjugation- a major hepatic detoxification pathway.


Source Materials: Glycine is made by chemical synthesis. It is vegan and non-GMO.


Allergens:  According to information provided by our suppliers, these capsules are free of the eight major allergens as identified by the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004 (FALCPA): Wheat (gluten), eggs, milk, soybeans, shellfish, fish, peanuts, tree nuts.


Recommendations: Use as directed by a healthcare professional.


Precautions: Pregnant or lactating women and individuals taking prescription medications should consult with a healthcare professional before taking any supplement.

    Great product. Useful for support of detox pathways (phase 2 conjugation, glutathione synthesis, etc.), collagen synthesis, restful sleep. Like the powder because it means less capsules, and as a free powder, glycine can sweeten things. (Although not everyone tastes the same degree of sweetness.) Having a glycine-sweetened bedtime toddy can help send patients off to lala land - it acts as a calming neurotransmitter. What's not to like?
