GLYCINE

Chemical name :

Aminoacetic acid

Abbreviation:

Gly / G

Description

Glycine is a hydrophobic straight-chain (aliphatic) amino acid. As the human body is capable of synthesizing it, this amino acid is described as "non-essential".

 

 

Like all amino acids, glycine is used in the composition of proteins such as collagen, a protein that strengthens the skin, ligaments and cartilage. Between a quarter and a third of the amino acids in collagen are glycine-type amino acids.

Glycine also acts as a precursor of glutathione. Glutathione is involved in maintaining the balance of oxidation-reduction (redox potential) and allows electron exchanges. In addition, its antioxidant properties enable it to neutralise free radicals that damage cells, thus protecting our body.

In addition, glycine is a precursor of creatine (an amino acid derivative present in the brain and muscle fibres) and acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter).

 

The benefits

  • Wisteria is an amino acid involved in the composition of proteins. It participates in their normal synthesis..
  • In addition, glycine helps to repair liver damages caused by excessive alcohol consumption and improves the recovery process.
  • Glycine is likely to act in synergy with boldo and yarrow in supporting hepato-biliary functions.
