Now Glycine 1000mg
An Amino Acid That Supports Energy Production!
Glycine is a non-essential amino acid and 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 body 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. The amino acid Glycine is non-chiral and only has one form without a D- or L- designation.
NOW Glycine CapsulesI am 72 years old and I have been using NOW Glycine capsules for over 6 months. I take a massive dose daily (10 grams or 10 1,000mg capsules). I have found that not only do I have more energy, but my body is largely free of pain. Glycine happens to be an anti inflammatory as well. It used to take me 2 to 3 minutes of agonized walking after sitting for a while to be able to move freely, but still with some pain. With NOW Glycine I move with much more freedom from pain. I cannot take NSAID's as I am on blood thinners so this is a true Godsend for me.
