    Glycine is a non-essential amino acid synthesized in the body through various complex pathways involving Threonine‚ Serine‚ Hydroxyproline and Choline metabolism. It is involved in the synthesis of purines‚ porphyrins‚ creatine and glyoxylic acid‚ and is also a biochemical constituent of the tripeptide glutathione. Glycine is also essential for the synthesis of bile and nucleic acids‚ and it is used in many commercial gastric antacid preparations. It is important in the central nervous system where it acts as one of the main inhibitory neurotransmitters. Although high amounts of Proline and 4-hydroxyproline are found in collagen (important for skin and connective tissue)‚ almost 1/3 rd is comprised of Glycine. High amounts of Glycine are found in gelatin‚ which is a denatured collagen. Low plasma levels of Glycine are noted in hypoglycemics‚ those with viral infections and fevers‚ CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and anemia. A metabolic disorder causing excessive levels of Glycine in the spinal fluid is responsible for Non-Ketotic Hyperglycemia‚ or Rett Syndrome‚ which has symptoms of autism.

    Glycine is considered a glucogenic amino acid‚ which includes others such as Glutamine‚ Alanine‚ Threonine‚ Serine‚ Methionine‚ Tyrosine‚ and Lysine‚ and thus is involved in maintaining blood sugar levels. Hypoglycemics
    are low in Glycine and supplementation with Glycine‚ along with other glucogenic amino acids‚ is beneficial in regulating low blood sugar levels‚ and increasing energy in those who are lethargic due to this condition.

    Glycine is one of the main precursors to inhibitory neurotransmitters‚ along with Taurine‚ GABA‚ and other such as Tyrosine‚ Phenylalanine‚ Serine and Threonine.

    Research regarding supplementation with Glycine‚ along with traditional medications (antipsychotics)‚ appear to have beneficial results with Schizophrenics‚ although less effective when combined with clozapine.
    Because of its receptor sites‚ Glycine appears to be beneficial in memory. In a double- blind crossover study‚ both young and middle-aged men significantly benefited with improved episodic memory. It was suggested that supplementation with Glycine could significantly improve memory that may be impaired due to jet lag‚ disrupted sleep‚ or work fatigue‚ and be helpful in memory retrieval problems associated with schizophrenia‚ Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease.

    • Increases creatine synthesis. Glycine‚ along with Arginine supplementation‚ increases endogenous creatine synthesis.
    • Acute ischaemic stroke. A study of patients administered 1-2 grams of Glycine sublingually‚ within 6 hours after the onset of acute ischaemic stroke in the carotid artery‚ indicated favorable clinical effects.
