Product Details

Glycine is a white, crystalline amino acid; dissolve in water and. As also known as aminoacetic acid, it is the simplest amino acid. It has acid group as well as amino group which both groups act as a base. It is not optically active, i.e., it does not have d- and l-stereoisomers as two hydrogens are bonded to the central carbon atom. It is nonessential amino acids for mammals; i.e., they can synthesize it from amino acids serine and threonine and from other sources and do not require dietary sources. It is commercially synthesis from ammonia. It is also prepared from bromoethanoic acid by reaction with potassium phthalimide. It helps to improve glycogen storage utilized in the synthesis of hemoglobin, collagen, and glutathione, and facilitates the amelioration of high blood fat and uric acid levels.



  • Leg ulcers. Applying cream containing glycine and other amino acids seems to reduce pain and slightly improve the healing of leg ulcers.

An ischemic stroke is caused by the blockage of a blood vessel (usually by a clot) in the brain. Brain cells beyond the obstruction don't receive oxygen and begin to die, causing irreversible damage.

  • 3-phosphoglycerate dehydrogenase (3-PGDH) deficiency. 3-PGDH deficiency is a rare condition in which serine is not synthesized properly. Taking glycine by mouth might reduce seizures in people with this condition.

  • Mental performance. Early research shows that taking glycine by mouth might improve memory and mental performance.

  • Cystic fibrosis. Early research shows that taking glycine by mouth might improve lung function and breathing by a small amount in patients with cystic fibrosis.

  • Isovaleric acidemia. Isovaleric acidemia is a rare condition in which certain amino acids are not processed properly by the body. Taking glycine by mouth along with L-carnitine might help treat this condition.

  • Sleep quality. Taking glycine before bedtime for 2-4 days seems to improve sleep in people with poor sleep quality. Taking glycine before bedtime might also reduce feelings of tiredness the following day after a shortened night of sleep.
