Glycine The Short & Sticky:

Glycine could be the most underrated and understudied amino acid in existence. While it is in a high percentage of foods we consume, most people do not get enough to perform optimally, and many athletes are in need of direct supplementation for peak performance.

Put simply; we can't live without it. Glycine in the body is essential to collagen synthesis. If you are looking to improve your performance or wellness you need collagen synthesis to be optimal. Collagen is essential for a myriad of bodily functions including maintaining the structure of tissues, joints and blood vessels. It is literally what our composition is made of. Without high enough glycine levels, collagen production suffers and also declines with age.

Performance & Glycine Supplementation:

Experiments have shown that taking a single bolus high dose (22.5 grams) of glycine caused a 60% surge in growth hormone release from the pituitary gland in under five minutes, while smaller doses of 4, 8, and 12 grams also increases serum levels of growth hormones. (12,13) An extreme GH lift after your workout will help build new tissue, assist in increased recovery, and will aid in protein synthesis.

What can glycine do for weight training? There are several studies showing that Glycine may enhance peak power production and reduce lactic acid build-up. Glycine may be one of the most underrated amino acids for recovery as well.

Glycine can help get you the rest needed to achieve your fitness and health goals. Using the gold standard-measure of sleep, polysomnography (PSG), research shows 3g of glycine ingested before bed reduces time to fall asleep (known as sleep latency) and helps people get into restorative, growth-inducing, recovery-promoting slow-wave sleep (SWS) faster.

With an essential role in a wide variety of important bodily systems from collagen synthesis and GH levels to improved recovery and sleep, glycine is an amino acid that, while "non-essential," is truly "essential" to take your performance and wellness to the heights you have never seen before! Adding Glycine to your regimen can truly help everyone.
