Glycine is a conditionally essential amino acid that works as both an inhibitory and excitatory neurotransmitter. Glycine is chemically one of the simplest and at the same time most ubiquitous of all amino acids. It is found in proteins of all life forms, and is important in the synthesis of proteins and adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the high-energy molecule that stores the energy the body needs and considered by biologists to be the energy currency of life. Glycine combines with a large number of toxic substances and converts them to harmless forms, which are then excreted. It is often used as a natural sleep aid, as we will now look at.

Health benefits of glycine amino acid

Within the central nervous system glycine functions as an inhibitory neurotransmitter and plays a well-documented and important part in initiating normal REM sleep patterns. There is some evidence showing that 3 grams of glycine supplements administered before bedtime improves sleep quality naturally. Glycine is involved in growth, has positive effects on attention and memory in adults and may help strengthen the immune system. It also has oxidative stress-regulating effects.

Most people need to take between one and three grams of glycine supplements. Whereas most other commercially available glycine supplements are only available in doses of 500mg, Life Extension´s easy-to-swallow capsules come in a more convenient 1000mg size.


If you have kidney or liver disease, have suffered a stroke or are taking clozapine, you should consult your doctor before taking this glycine supplements.

slapen als een roosje, daar kan ik nu over mee spreken, doet enorm veel deugd, ben nu ook tijdens de dag veel fitter, vroeger was ik letterlijk een wrak kon niet vooruit, alles was te veel en dat allemaal door slaap te kort. Nu ben ik als herboren dank aan dit product van apran.
