Glycine is an amino acid that has a calming effect on the brain and has been found to be an effective treatment for a variety of disorders ranging from an upset stomach to schizophrenia. Additionally, glycine can help remove toxic substances like lactic acid from the body, and it may also increase the use and availability of growth hormone. It has been proven to promote the release of growth hormone and to support cell volumizing. When glycine is included in a balanced formula of amino acids, it is helpful in slowing down the breakdown of muscle tissue. It is also helpful in healing damaged muscles or in simply rebuilding muscle tissue in athletes who participate in extreme workouts. Additionally, glycine seems to boost strength and muscle development.

This esterified version is more absorbable than standard Glycine and is only available from NutraBio.

Glycine is a conditionally essential amino acid that has one of the simplest structures of all the amino acids found in the body. Glycine is found in proteins of all life forms, and is important for the synthesis of proteins as well as adenosine triphosphate (ATP).

Glycine is an amino acid used by the body to build proteins. Glycine promotes health of the thymus gland, spleen, and bone marrow and balance white cell production. Glycine slows down muscle degeneration by supplying additional creatine, which is a compound that is present in muscle tissue. It is utilized in the construction of DNA and RHA. Glycine is essential for the synthesis of nucleic acids, bile acids and other nonessential amino acids in the body. It has been used in the treatment of manic depression and is also effective in the treatment of hyperactivity.

The benefits of Glycine Ethyl Ester:

Amino Acid Esters are amino acids with an ester molecule attached. Esters are organic compounds that are formed by esterification, which is the reaction of carboxylic acid and alcohols. Esters are organic compounds that help shuttle the amino acid across lipid membranes of the gut and directly into the bloodstream for direct transport to your cells. This prevents the amino acid from being destroyed in the gut and drives more of the free form amino acid directly into muscle tissue where it can be more efficiently used for its intended purpose.

Free form amino acids have inherent limitations such as limited absorption through the intestine. Whereas amino acid esters can pass through the intestine largely intact, regular free form aminos can be significantly degraded in the intestine, leaving only trace amounts of the ingested dose active. Because of the rapid breakdown of some amino acids in the intestine, its beneficial effects can be limited. Ethyl ester amino acids are thought to have a much better absorption rate and a longer half-life in the body than regular free from amino acids because it is slightly more lipophilic.

Amino acid ethyl esters are technically amino acids derivatives. Their ergogenic effects are similar to those of their base free form amino acids, but the presence of an ester will make the ergogenic effects of more pronounced. The presence of the ester not only enhances the function of amino acid and overcomes its inherent limitations, but the presence of an ester and increased absorption also reduce the need for large doses, which may put less stress on the body.

More on the benefits of Glycine:

Glycine delivers a lot of important health benefits. Most notably, glycine has a calming effect on the brain and has been found to be an effective treatment for a variety of disorders ranging from an upset stomach to schizophrenia. Additionally, glycine can help remove toxic substances like lactic acid from the body, and it may also increase the use and availability of growth hormone. It has been proven to promote the release of growth hormone and to support cell volumizing. When glycine is included in a balanced formula of amino acids, it is helpful in slowing down the breakdown of muscle tissue. It is also helpful in healing damaged muscles or in simply rebuilding muscle tissue in athletes who participate in extreme workouts. Additionally, glycine seems to boost strength and muscle development.

Glycine has the simplest structure of all amino acids, allowing it to fit easily within protein chains and make space for structurally larger amino acids. This feature makes it very important for specific bodily functions. Glycine is also a precursor of creatine, which is used to construct DNA and RNA. And it supports glycogen storage, thereby making more glucose available for energy production.

Glycine is importance in the synthesis of proteins, peptides, purines, adenosine triphosphate (ATP), nucleic acids, hemoglobin, glutathione, creatine, bile salts, glucose, glycogen, and L-serine and other amino acids.

Glycine has a calming effect on the brain and activates many receptors which promote neural development, learning, and cognition. Research suggests that glycine may help promote deeper, faster sleep without the "morning hangover" effect associated with prescription or over the counter sleep medications. Glycine may also have bacteria regulating effects.

Glycine is also a neurotransmitter and helps maintain a healthy central nervous system (CNS). Glycine can be beneficial in alleviating mild memory changes associated with aging. Glycine is a solid water-soluble substance that has a sweetish taste.


We guarantee our supplements to be the freshest and purest: Our powders and capsules contain only pure active ingredient with absolutely no additives. Other manufacturers, in an effort to keep costs down, dilute their products with cheap fillers and add chemical excipients to their products to speed up their manufacturing output.

Truthful and Clear Supplement Facts Panels - No BS Proprietary Blends:

A proprietary blend is a cheap gimmick used by manufacturers to hide the real truth about what's in their product. By listing a bunch of ingredients under one blend on the label, the manufacturer only has to tell you how much of the blend is in a serving while hiding how much of each ingredient is in a serving. They do this to protect their secret formula, that’s bull, they do it so they can cheapen their product without their customers knowing. In the industry we call this “Window Dressing” the product the label looks good on the outside but there is nothing really happening on the inside. At NutraBio our Supplement Facts panels list the exact amount of each and every active ingredient in the supplement. No guessing, you know exactly what you are getting in every product we sell.
