HealthWise® Glycine is a 100% pure pharmaceutical grade micro-crystalline powder. The principal function of Glycine is to serve as a neurotransmitter and a precursor to proteins.
This organic compound is also a vital building block for numerous natural products. If the amino acid Serine is required by the body, it can be converted from Glycine.
NASA scientists have discovered Glycine in samples of comet Wild 2 returned by NASA's Stardust spacecraft.
"The discovery of glycine in a comet supports the idea that the fundamental building blocks of life are prevalent in space and strengthens the argument that life in the universe may be common rather than rare."
Note: The above measurements display the amount of milligrams per amino equivalent to a 5ml metric teaspoon. Powders are loosely filled, levelled but not compacted.
HealthWise® Amino Powders are pure pharmaceutical grade powders and are packed by weight not volume, without the use of fillers or flowing agents. Some of the powders are slightly hygroscopic (retain moisture) and this can result in clumping. This can be broken apart with a spoon before taking or dissolved in water.
For Creatine conversion: Glycine is best taken away from meals or pre workout if using it to convert to creatine.
