Glycine is a conditionally essential amino acid that serves as both an inhibitory and excitatory neurotransmitter. It is the chemically simplest and most omnipresent of all the amino acids. It combines with many toxic substances, converting them to harmless forms which are then excreted.
This amino acid has a calming effect on the brain and is also involved in growth. Research suggests that glycine may help promote deeper sleep. Glycine also has a positive impact on attention and memory in adults. Glycine may also help boost the immune defense system and has oxidative stress regulating effects.
Most people need to take between one to three grams of glycine to be effective even though studies show high doses are safe. However, most glycine products are only available in 500 mg capsules. That makes taking higher doses cumbersome and costly. However, Life Extension’s glycine comes in easy-to-swallow 1000-mg capsules.
Read the entire label and follow the directions carefully prior to use.
Take one (1) to three (3) capsules on an empty stomach at bedtime, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
Vegetable cellulose (capsule), ascorbyl palmitate.
- Keep out of reach of children.
- Do not exceed recommended dose.
- Do not purchase if outer seal is broken or damaged.
- When using nutritional supplements, please consult with your physician if you are undergoing treatment for a medical condition or if you are pregnant or lactating.

Learnt about glycine , funny enough, from my dentist, He is taking it as lozenges under the tongue for a very quick effect. I just open a capsule and do the same. Asleep in no time at all, provided I am a recovering insomniac. Tried hundreds of different remedies, only GABA with l-theanine and glycine seem to work, plus they are aminos, no harm at all. Recommend to experiment.
Not a good sleep aid

It might help to stay mind clear , but not a good sleep aid if you have sleeping trouble .
Good for health

I have insomnia very bad and at 82 years old, I do. It ,lIke to take drugs. I read about the natural amino acid GLYCINE and researched a lot of,them and Life extension sounded the best to me and very reasonably prices. I am so thrilled with it. it actually helps me get a restful nights sleep after tossing and turning for years. I sent for a,bottle for my sister who is 85 and she has had tremendous results from it also. I would recommend it to anyone who has problems sleeping.
