Glycine Overview

In this modern time, it is hard to find someone who does not have access to information. Almost all of us can be easily connected to one another and have our own library with just a click away. A vast network of information that can tell us what we need to know about anything and everything. This is one of the main reasons why people are more informed than before and are trying to make better decisions when it comes to their health. They are no longer simply taking the word of their doctors. They would do their own research and find out for themselves and a lot of times they would find out that there are alternative ways in aiding your body into the path of better health or healing through natural means. One of those all natural substances are amino acids and we will be looking at one today.


Glycine is an organic compound and is the tiniest of all 20 amino acids which are usually found in proteins. It is colourless but sweet tasting and is commonly considered to be a non-essential amino acid in our diets as the body is able to derive it from another amino acid known as serine. Its main physiological function for human beings is being part of our nervous system as a neurotransmitter. More specifically it is an inhibitory neurotransmitter which is commonly found in abundance in the spinal cord, retina and brainstem. Aside from its use as an important part of daily human bodily functions it also has use in industry as a part of the manufacturing process of various herbicides.

Glycine and Energy Boosting

Glycine as an amino acid had the obvious benefit of helping one with its energy enhancing goals. It plays a role in many sport supplement formulations that are out in the market today. Although not needed by the body from daily diet it does not mean that it does not have any value health wise, it simply means that it is a substance that the body can live without but would be better with it. Especially if the kind of life you are living is an active lifestyle and always has physical fitness and energy as a precursor to peace of mind. Studies have shown that the right amount for a specific individual will be able to increase energy levels by helping the body maintain its levels of ATP or adenosine triphosphate which is essential to reach optimum energy levels. It would also help with maintaining a healthy metabolism and an overall sense of well-being.

Glycine and The Prostate

Various studies have proven that glycine is able to aid in the reduction in size of swollen prostate as this amino acid has been known to be essential for prostate health and could be found in abundance in that organ. Furthermore, if taken with other amino acids such as glutamic acid and alanine, it will have a more potent effect in terms of reducing prostate tissues that are swollen.
