With a key role in so many bodily processes from brain function to muscle growth and sleep, glycine is an amino acid whereby considered “non-essential,” while being truly “essential” to fuel your body with everything it needs to perform.
ENJOY A SOUND NIGHTS’ SLEEP
Using the gold standard measure of sleep, polysomnography (PSG), research has shown that 3g of glycine ingested before bed reduces the time taken to fall asleep (known as sleep latency) and helps people get into restorative, growth-inducing, recovery-promoting slow-wave sleep (SWS) quicker.
ENHANCED COGNITIVE BRAIN FUNCTION
Both animal and human studies show that N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor function is involved in learning and memory. Glycine binds to a modulatory site on the NMDA receptor complex and, by increasing its function, may improve memory and learning.
In addition, In a study on levels of glycine and sleep efficacy, researchersobserved that glycine plays a significant role in alleviating symptoms of fatigue in people with poor sleep. Subjects reported positive effects on feelings of clear-headedness, liveliness, and self-assessed quality of sleep.
BUILD MUSCLE MASS FASTER
In a science experiment studied amongst mice and their muscle mass, research has shown that glycine was able to stimulate muscle growth whereas leucine was not. Therefore, glycine holds promise for improving health by protecting muscles from wasting during various wasting conditions.
PROMOTE HEALTHY BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS
Glycine is well-known for its ability to regulate your blood sugar levels and stimulate insulin secretion in humans. Despite being a sweetener, glycine has been researched for its ability to lower blood sugar levels for optimal bodily function.
Glycine is involved in digestion, specifically in the breakdown of fatty acids in foods. It promotes rebuilding tissue that lines the digestive tract, keeping food particles and bacteria inside the gut where they belong, rather than allowing tiny openings to form that pass particles to the bloodstream, where they trigger inflammation. It has also been shown to facilitate the rate of stomach acid secretion.
Glycine is an important, natural component of collagen, a protein that forms part of the body’s connective tissues like the tendons, ligaments, skin, cartilage, bone, and blood vessels. These areas tend to undergo constant physical stress thus eating more foods and supplements containing glycine can keep collagen in good shape, a sign of healthy aging.
*It has the same sweetness as sugar and can be used as a sweetener.
