Glycine is a conditionally-essential amino acid with muscle growth, mood, and anti-aging benefits. AOR’s Glycine is ideal for gym-goers, athletes, anti-aging enthusiasts, people with poor sleep quality or mood imbalances, and those looking for a single supplement with a multitude of benefits.
How Does It Work?
Glycine is the second most-used amino acid in the synthesis of proteins and enzymes in the body and acts as an inhibitory and excitatory neurotransmitter in the brain and spinal cord. Due to its ability to stimulate the production of human growth hormone (hGH), glycine is primarily used to support muscle growth and repair and stimulate youthful effects on metabolism, bone growth, and immunity. Glycine’s ability to decrease brain excitability has also made it useful for improving sleep quality and mood. In particular, it helps relieve negative emotional symptoms associated with brain disorders such as schizophrenia. Glycine may also support memory, blood sugar management, and prostate health, as shown in several studies.
