Glycine is the smallest of amino acid molecules, yet extremely important in liver detoxification pathways, production of glutathione, DNA, and hemoglobin. In addition:
• It is an inhibitory neurotransmitter which has recently been shown to support healthy neurological function
• It is an important component necessary for healthy REM and delta sleep patterns.
Glycine is especially helpful in improving the taste of Custom Amino Acids and Custom Vitamin/Mineral Formulas. It has a sweet taste and can be used to sweeten drinks or powdered supplements without altering blood glucose levels.
