Glycine is an amino acid found in many protein food sources that helps support normal detoxification by serving as a precursor to Glutathione, a powerful intracellular antioxidant which is involved in both Phase I and II of liver detoxification. Glycine also helps maintain a healthy nervous system and is used to alleviate mild memory changes associated with aging. It activates many receptors in the brain which promote neural development, learning, and cognition. Glycine is a major inhibitory neurotransmitter which supports relaxation and healthy stress management. Clinical research suggests that taking glycine before bedtime may promote sleep quality and modestly reduce feelings of fatigue. It should not be taken with clozapine.
