Glycine is an important amino acid for several reasons. It can support the liver and kidneys in removing potentially harmful toxins from the body‚ while also promoting cognitive health.

It's technically not considered to be an essential amino acid‚ since it can be produced from other chemicals naturally abundant in the body. Furthermore‚ dietary sources include foods high in protein like dairy products‚ legumes‚ meats‚ and fish. However‚ there are some cases when you may want or need a boost in your glycine levels. That's where Pure Encapsulations' Glycine Vegetable Capsules come in.

Every capsule provides 500 milligrams of free-form glycine. It may protect the nerves‚ while supporting mental functioning and working to improve your memory. Glycine can benefit thinking due to its involvement in transmitting chemical signals throughout the brain.

In addition‚ glycine can help moderate the release of cytokines‚ substances secreted by the immune system and other cells that allow its cells to communicate with each other; their release can be thrown out of whack by metabolic stress.

Perhaps most essential is glycine's potential detoxification effects. The kidneys and liver are vital organs whose good functioning is essential to overall health. Both work to eliminate toxins from the body‚ which you can be exposed to through the foods you eat or the environment you live in. Glycine can support their efforts by binding with toxic substances and making them harmless‚ allowing you to excrete them.

Take three to six capsules daily‚ in divided doses between meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 180-capsule bottle of Glycine by Pure Encapsulations should last for one to three months.

      Works well, but beware blood sugar crash

      from Washington, DC on 4/12/2021
      This glycine works well to calm anxiety - works within 10-15 minute of taking it. However, I find that the soothing effect is short-lived and that I tend to experience a blood sugar crash 30 or 40 minutes after taking. If you have any kind of dysglycemia, I would recommend taking magnesium glycinate instead or combining this supplement with a form of magnesium or zinc for blood sugar regulation.

    • Great product!

      from Santa Barbara, CA on 10/25/2019
      I discovered Glycine while searching for help with sleep. It has completely turned around my sleep experience and it’s allowing me to get my 8 hours each night! I am so grateful for your product as it’s very pure, just like your company name.


      It Is a great sleep aide, body sugar balancer and your particular product has the most pure ingredients. It is also very reasonably priced.

      Easy to swallow

      from Round Rock TX on 6/28/2019
      These capsules are easy to swallow and contain 500 mg each, which is a good-sized dose.


      Easy to swallow.


      It would be nice if it came in a strength of 1000 mg per capsule, even if the capsules have to be slightly bigger.

      Seems to have made my hands orange

      from Eugene OR on 5/23/2018
      I didn't notice much benefit from using Glycine by Pure Encapsulations.


      It had few side-effects and has a neutral smell and flavor.


      Made me look like I was wearing orange gloves. Not sure exactly why I had this reaction, but it went away after I stopped taking it.
