    3. Health effects of glycine (animal studies)

    "Glycine is recognized as an “inhibitory” neurotransmitter, and promotes natural sleep. Used as a supplement, it has helped to promote recovery from strokes and seizures, and to improve learning and memory. But in every type of cell, it apparently has the same kind of quieting, protective antistress action. The range of injuries produced by an excess of tryptophan and serotonin seems to be prevented or corrected by a generous supply of glycine. Fibrosis, free radical damage, inflammation, cell death from ATP depletion or calcium overload, mitochondrial damage, diabetes, etc., can be prevented or alleviated by glycine." - Ray Peat



    Most of the glycine research has been conducted in rodent studies, usually by replacing a fraction of dietary protein with glycine or by using 1% glycine solution instead of normal drinking water.

    In the animal studies I could find, the results were surprisingly good. Glycine

    · protects rats from diabetes-induced harmful effects on kidneys, eyes, blood sugar, immune function and total mortality[2]

    I know we aren't rats, but still - Glycene is relatively cheap
