What is Glycine?
Glycine is a non-essential amino acid. It is considered non-essential because the body is able to biosynthesise it in the liver from the amino acids, serine and threonine. However, it can also be sourced from many high-protein foods including meat, fish, legumes and dairy products. Glycine is the second most widespread amino acid found in human enzymes and proteins. This amino acid plays an important role in the body, it is essential for the production of many acids in the body including nucleic acids and bile acids. This amino acid is also very important to the central nervous system and the digestive system.
