Glycine 500mg - 120 capsules

Glycine: resilient cartilages, healthy cholesterol and uric acid level, beautiful skin and hair, good sleep

Glycine is a non-essential amino acid, which means that the body cannot form it itself. Among other things, glycine has important tasks in the central nervous system, because it is one of the most significant depressant (inhibitory) neural messengers. Like GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), glycine is able to shorten the falling asleep phase and improve the sleep quality. The inhibitory properties of glycine also play a major role in unpleasant situations, because it is able to give tranquillity and to reduce the activity of hyperactive nerves.

Glycine is of importance for the cholesterol level. The amino acid is needed to form bile acids from cholesterol. Bile acids are essential for the fat digestion. In case the cholesterol level is too high, glycine starts to form more bile acid, which will be excreted easily through the intestines later.

These are further important functions of glycine:

  • component of the haemoglobin metabolism (haemoglobin transports the oxygen in the blood)
  • promotes the excretion of uric acid and can therefore contribute to a healthy uric acid level
  • component of the creatine metabolism (creatine provides energy in the muscle cells and is involved in the muscle building)
  • component of collagen and is therefore important for the skin regeneration, the hair formation and the cartilage build-up, the joint cartilages in particular

Glycine is the starting substance for the formation of numerous molecules: glutathione, choline, porphyrins, purines, creatine, collagen and elastin. It is also a component of the glucose tolerance factor. The glucose tolerance factor is an endogenous compound, which is involved in regulating the blood sugar level.
