Supplying your body with a healthy mixture of nutrients is important. Many people have trouble supplying their body with the right amounts of amino acids‚ which are extremely helpful in body functioning. You can however provide yourself with the amino acid glycine easily by taking a dietary supplement. Glycine Powder 500 grams (0.5kg/1.1 lbs.) by Metabolic Maintenance provides an excellent source of glycine in a convenient and easily mixable powder.
Glycine is an organic compound which is also the smallest of the 20 amino acids that are found in proteins. It is a colorless‚ sweet-tasting crystalline that is not deemed 'essential' due to the body's ability to make it from other chemicals. The body utilizes glycine in making proteins‚ but it also has functions in liver detoxification pathways‚ as well as the production processes of DNA‚ hemoglobin‚ and glutathione. As an inhibitory neurotransmitter‚ glycine transmits chemical signals in the brain‚ and may have a role in healthy neurological functioning. It also may be involved in the process of promoting healthy REM sleep patterns. As it does have a naturally sweet taste‚ Glycine Powder by Metabolic Maintenance can help in sweetening the taste of the liquid or formula that you include it in.
Each 0.5 kg/ 1.1 lb. (500 gram) container of Glycine Powder by Metabolic Maintenance has a recommended dosage of 1/8 teaspoon (500 mg) once daily‚ mixed into 10 oz of water or fruit juice as a nutritional sweetener‚ or as recommended by a healthcare professional.

Overall Rating for Glycine Powder - 1.1 lb (0.5 kg)

Really has helped me to sleep
I had been using ambien for many years but wanted to stop. Taking 1 tsp of Glycine Powder by Metabolic Maintenance at night right before retiring has been amazing. And I don't wake up during the night as I used to.
No side effects for me.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
I have taken Glycine Powder several times when dealing with anxiety. I have not been taking this on a regular basis though as I do not feel I need to. Glycine is not an essential amino acid. It is synthesized in the body. It is an inhibitory amino acid so a lot of alternative practitioners use to help people with anxiety.
