Glycine is an amino acid which has a single hydrogen atom as its side chain. It is the simplest amino acid (since carbamic acid is unstable), with the chemical formula NH2‐CH2‐COOH. Glycine is one of the proteinogenic amino acids. Glycine is a colorless, sweet-tasting crystalline solid. It is the only achiral proteinogenic amino acid. It can fit into hydrophilic or hydrophobic environments, due to its minimal side chain of only one hydrogen atom.

 

Benefits:

  • Plays crucial role as neurotransmitter in the central nervous system

  • Helps build the immune system

  • Alters calcium ion levels to regulate immune function, production of superoxide, and synthesis of cytokines

  • Facilitates conjugation of bile acids in pigs, and hence absorption and digestion of lipid soluble vitamins and lipids

  • Helps with electrolyte regulation

  • Muscle and cartilage formation and repair
