Glycine's Many Uses

Glycine is the smallest and simplest amino acid, making it versatile for use in a wide range of functions. Glycine is necessary for the production of glutathione, DNA, creatine, bile, hemoglobin, and most proteins.* It also helps to promote glycogen storage, thereby making glucose readily available for energy production.* Glycine also functions as a calming neurotransmitter in the brain, where it facilitates nerve impulses and is important for the maintenance of healthy sleep patterns.* Let's take a closer look at some of the many things glycine can do.

Glycine and Glutathione Production

Glutathione is an important antioxidant that helps to protect cells from damage. Glycine is necessary for the production of glutathione.* Antioxidants scavenge harmful toxins known as free radicals, which can damage cells, leading to inflammation. Free radical damage has been linked to a number of chronic diseases, so it's important to consume foods that help promote glutathione production.* Glycine-rich foods include bone broth and organ meats.

Glycine and Energy Production

Glycine also plays an important role in energy production. When glycogen stores are depleted, glycogen needs to be replenished in order to maintain energy levels.* Glycogen is a type of sugar that is stored in the liver and muscles. Glycogen is broken down into glucose, which is then used for energy. Glycine helps to promote glycogen storage.* Foods high in glycine include legumes, nuts, and seeds.

Glycine and Sleep Patterns

Glycine also has a calming effect on the nervous system.* It is used by the brain to create serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter that helps regulate mood and sleep patterns.* Serotonin levels are highest during the day and lowest at night. This decline in serotonin levels is associated with feelings of fatigue.* Glycine supplements have been shown to improve sleep quality by increasing time spent in deep sleep.* Foods rich in glycine include bananas, tomatoes, carrots, and oats.

As you can see, glycine is a versatile amino acid with many important functions. If you're looking to increase your intake of glycine-rich foods, consider adding bone broth, organ meats, legumes, nuts, seeds, bananas, tomatoes, carrots, or oats to your diet. And if you're having trouble sleeping through the night, you may want to try taking a glycine supplement before bedtime.
