Product Overview

Product Overview

Glycine is a nonessential amino acid which can be found in protein rich food such as meat fish and dairy. It is considered the simplest amino acid in the body and is largely associated with the building of proteins.

There is a lot of evidence to suggest that Glycine, when combined with a simple carbohydrate, can improve lean growth and recovery. It is thought that this combination can promote a greater glucose uptake compared to ingesting glucose alone. The combination of carbohydrates and Glycine can result in a greater use of glucose for energy before exercise or for recovery after exercise.

Glycine is recognised as a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system and has also been shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory, antispastic, and antipsychotic activity.

Other studies suggest Glycine can improve the uptake and use of creatine by the body, which may result in greater gains in strength and lean mass.

Key Benefits

  • Can improve muscle growth and recovery
  • Has been shown to increase the absorption of creatine and carbohydrates

For those into mixing their own Supplements

I decided to start mixing my own Pre-workout supplement so that I can be selective about each ingredient and amount. Glycene is a neurotransmitter and can aid absorbtion of creatine. Being able to purchase pure Glycene at an affordable price opens the door for an infinite number of uses e.g. boost exisiting supplements, making your own, taking pure etc.. etc..

muchos good

I've been taking Glycine alongside my whey protein for a few months now and have been finding that I do not ache as much after a workout. I take this along with protein, creatine, taurine in a shake and they all mix together nicely, leaving no clumps or sandy texture. I cant say for sure how effective the glycine is by itself, but take in the way it should be seems to be pretty good.

Goes Well With:

protein, taurine

good for sleep

This fine powder does eventually mix into liquids. I has no flavour. I use 2 mini scoops before bed and I think I have been sleeping more soundly as a result. I have had some great dreams too.

L-Theanine, vimto

Glycine really helps to get the carbohydrates into the blood. My training sessions are much better, because I feel like I have more energy to spend.

"Seems to help relax me and reduce cortisol at night. But may be more helpful PWO in a shake with creatine etc, so why do you suggest taking it on an empty stomach?"

This was one of the aminos explored in the late 80s.I've recently started training again and am using this with lysine. After 3 weeks it's having a definite effect.\n\nIt definitely helps make progress and recovery easier. I'm 39 so the rejuvenating effects are quite pronounced. My skin tone has changed noticably and lean mass development is quite surprising.
